When it comes to conspiracy theories, we have seen many in 2017. While few might be quite mind-boggling, others were downright rejected, but one conspiracy theory has left Twitter in frenzy and it deals with none other than Trump! Yes, people are convinced that at a recent interaction with the press at the White House lawn the US President used a body double of his wife Melania Trump!

Crazy, right?

But somehow, after ‘fake news’ the idea of a fake Melania has people hooked. Also the fact that on numerous occasions she was caught on camera being uncomfortable around her husband, it seems somehow plausible.

On October 13, POTUS spoke to reporters ahead of visiting the US Secret Service training facility in Maryland. Next to him stood FLOTUS, wearing big glares, long coat. Speaking on the White House lawn Donald Trump pointed out, “My wife Melania, who happens to be right here”. And that sparked a controversy.

Here’s the footage that gave birth to the controversy:

People were quick to jump to conclusion that something was very fishy and as to why Trump said something like that. But soon people started comparing pictures of Melania Trump from earlier events to that of the fateful day. From Twitter to Facebook, its raining memes on the conspiracy.

 

And this tweet sums up everything!

 

Even on Google trends phrases like “Melania Trump body double”, “Melania Trump double”, “fake Melania Trump” and “Melania Trump decoy” have seen a surge in this week.
