Trump Legitimizes 'Fake Melania' Conspiracy: 'Fake News Photoshopped' Her!

He says "the Fake News" has "photoshopped" pictures of Melania, but that's not where the pseudo-theory arose.

Since Donald Trump was sworn into office in 2016, there has been rumours going around the his wife Melania has a body double.

Trump tweeted Wednesday decrying a fourth estate which, he argues, is "getting more deranged with time!".

There's been no reason to give any credence to the conspiracy theory, which Trump perpetuated by suggesting the media were behind it.

The shows are expected to cover a variety of genres that include drama, documentary, comedy, kids program, etc. However, it's possible Apple may announce at least one new updated piece of hardware into the March 25 event.

What's unclear in the president's tweet is what he meant by the media photoshopping images of the First Lady.

Conspiracy theories that a stand-in is occasionally used for the first lady date back to at least 2017, when Melania Trump appeared in sunglasses and a raincoat as the president defended his response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.

On Tuesday's episode of "The View", co-host Joy Behar raised the issue of a Melania body double. "The tornadoes were frightful, but she wanted to go, and I said, 'Good, let's go, '" Trump said, referring to Mrs. Trump.

The president reflected in the interview on his trip with the first lady to Alabama to visit victims and pay respects to the 23 who died in the tornado. "It's a different shaped face". Melania Trump's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, blasted the segment in a post on Twitter on Monday morning.
