‘Fake Melana’ conspiracy theory breaks the internet

WASHINGTON: An old conspiracy theory involving the First Lady of the United States of America, Melania Trump, has resurfaced with the internet convinced that the American president uses a body double of his wife at times.

For the unversed, a popular “Fake Melania” conspiracy theory has earned much traction on the internet for a few years now. The theory claims that US President Donald Trump has another woman — identical in features, obviously — that stands in for his wife, Melania Trump at public places.

A recent picture of Melania and Trump triggered the rumours once again on social media. The first lady can be seen in a picture getting aboard the Marine One aircraft en route Nashville for the debate with Joe Biden.

The picture was taken last week on Thursday but the internet thinks that instead of Melania, it’s her body double standing behind the US president. Her smile in the picture, which looks a bit different from how the first lady usually flashes a smile, is what ignited curiosity on the matter.
