It seems that Trump haters around the country will latch onto anything to spread their insanity, even fall for tinfoil hat conspiracy theories about the First Lady.
On Friday, Heavy.com reported that a number of people on social media began tweeting “Fake Melania” conspiracy theories after the president and the First Lady paid a visit to Alabama to remember victims of the recent tornado.
Naturally, that caused the hashtag #FakeMelania to start trending.
According to Heavy.com:
“Fake Melania is back on the job,” one user tweeted yesterday–to almost 10,000 likes.
The president and his wife had been paying a visit to Alabama to remember victims of the Alabama tornado. There were 23 crosses erected in front of Providence Baptist Church in remembrance of those lost to the tornado. The crosses represented the 23 victims.
The president held his wife’s hands and paused for silence in front of each of the crosses, which had been showered with hearts, stuffed animals, flowers and written notes.

There’s lots more like this. It’s not the first time this has happened, the report said. It seems that conspiracies about a “fake Melania” have been circulating since about October 2017 when Trump held a press event at a US Secret Service training facility. A woman who appeared to be Melania was at his side and, Heavy.com said, the Internet went ballistic with a “fake Melania” cry that caught the attention of the Democrat-media complex which wouldn’t let it go.
This is what started the whole mess:
This is not Melania. To think they would go this far & try & make us think its her on TV is mind blowing. Makes me wonder what else is a lie pic.twitter.com/JhPVmXdGit

Naturally, a number of people mocked the Melania conspiracy theorists:
The left is trying to convince us today that a picture of Melania and POTUS includes a stunt-double for Melania. #FakeMelania is the top Twitter tend as of now.
These are the same people who call people on the right conspiracy theorists.

Leftists have lost their minds!
Is #FakeMelania seriously trending?!
Trump Derangement Syndrome is real!

Indeed. Of course, that assumes many of them have functioning minds to begin with…
As Russiagate fades into oblivion the extreme Left has brought back their deranged #FakeMelania conspiracy theory even after the Melania Truthers were debunked hard in 2017
And Twitter is allowing it to trend pic.twitter.com/pZhioO2CTI

#FakeMelania Hair, makeup, lighting, shoes and clothing can make people look vastly different from photo to photo. As much as Melania probably WISHES she had a clone or a body double, it honestly just looks like an unaltered photo where she has less makeup on than usual.

Yes, the idea of a #FakeMelania conspiracy is hilarious, but it’s actually worrying to see how many smart, politically aware people are just circulating it without any critical thought.
Sorry to spoil the fun, but it’s just a bad photo of her. https://t.co/aPVTsPcHnQ

The left-wing Snopes even called BS on the 2017 claim of a Melania body double, saying the “… conspiracy theorists pushing this rumor purposely used a blurry (and possibly distorted) video of Melania Trump in order to make this claim seem more plausible.”
I just checked to see why #FakeMelania was trending…..you really can’t make this stuff up or can you.
