Despite what Ivana Trump suggests (ahem), there's only one First Lady. Right? Well, maybe not, according to a strange conspiracy theory that's — amazingly — picking up steam. We'll just put this out there: some Internet users believe that Melania Trump has a body double. Let us explain.
On October 13, the First Lady (or was it?!) appeared alongside President Donald Trump during a televised statement at the U.S. Secret Service training facility in Beltsville, Maryland. Wearing a trench coat and oversized sunglasses, FLOTUS did not quite look like herself. According to some, at least.
Truthfully? We think Melania Trump looked like, well, Melania Trump during the appearance.
But, comedian Andrea Wagner Barton begged to differ. And, her suspicions were farther aroused when Donald said: "My wife Melania, who happens to be right here ..." Doth the President protest too much? Barton posted her "decoy stand-in" theory on Facebook:
Twitter user Joe Vargas then made the dubious theory go viral, when he posted this statement. (Side note: it seems he's actually being quite serious here.)
In case you wanted to do some research about this serious matter, don't bother. Vargas helpfully did it for you:
Melania Trump — or her body double — has yet to comment on these allegations. But we're certainly entertained by them.
