The online conspiracy surrounding Melania Trump and her supposed use of a body double is continuing, with the White House condemning the allegations and calling them Fake News. (For once, they’ve used the term correctly. It was bound to happen eventually.)
Rumours that the First Lady has used a body double for public appearances have plagued the White House since Donald Trump took office in 2016, which honestly should be the least of the United States’ concerns. Two of Melania Trump’s most recent appearances have garnered speculation online, first with the FLOTUS joining her husband and son Barron in Alabama to view the damage of a tornado in March.
We could see how people may think Melania is using a body double here, with the FLOTUS pictured smiling while within a foot of her husband. Definitely collusion.
I’m not one to give much thought to the body double conspiracy, but it’s insane how much that is NOT Melania.

Are we sure that’s really Melania and not a body-double?

Last week, the body double rumours were again running rampant on Twitter, this time when Melania and Donald walked hand in hand on the South Lawn. Yup, we’re on the body double train now. This woman has previously gone to great lengths to not touch her husband.
Twitter users believe that Melania’s use of sunglasses while standing outside in direct sunlight is actually her body double’s trick to hide in plain sight. Especially in this video below:
It wasn’t her. They have a fake body double they’ve used several times. It’s not Melania. The picture on the left is a still from yesterday, the pic on the right is Melania. Look at the nose, Melanias is narrow and straight. The doubles is bumpy and wide. Always sunglasses. pic.twitter.com/m9QtduI34N

That’s not Melania… Melanias hair is fuller than hers and she’s always made up and her features are more defined than this body double.😱

Often the body double forgets the way Melania purses her lips

Not Melania. I could see it right away. Nose not right and body too hefty.

Here she is a few minutes later with no sunglasses, forced to appear in public while the body double gets her 15-minute break as mandated by the Fair Employment Act.
We kid, but at this point, the White House being able to execute something as impressive as using a passable body double would be welcome news, it would give us some sense of relief to know that someone at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is competent enough to do their job.
The other day, getting on Marine One, it was the replicant. This one looks maybe like a stand in again. Thinking when they use the double, there are poka-dots involved so it’s harder to make body comparisons. Real Melania getting lots of fine face lines he probably hates seeing.

And this ends today’s lesson on “These people are the reason Trump got voted into the White House.” Thank you for your time.
