President Trump has a theory about those Melania body-double rumors

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

Donald Trump has said a conspiracy theory alleging Melania Trump sometimes uses a body double during outings with him has been concocted by journalists doctoring images.

Fox & Friends aired a clip of The View co-host Joy Behar arguing that a woman who recently accompanied President Donald Trump to visit a tornado-ravaged region of Alabama did not look like Melania Trump.

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

Bruce agreed, saying the first lady "remains a role model and clearly understands what her husband is trying to do and supports it".

President Trump Sends Record-Breaking Budget to Congress
Similarly, Trump's proposals to eviscerate DOE research programs only served to underscore their popularity on Capitol Hill. Acting Office of Management and Budget Director Russell Vought echoed the deficit concerns during the briefing.

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

"The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania", he tweeted at the time. Hosts of the ABC program debated whether an impostor had traveled with Trump. Trump was referring to President John F. Kennedy's wife, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who often was referred to as "Jackie O" after she remarried following Kennedy's assassination. "They want to see that", she said, prompting Behar to note that Obama had in fact produced his birth certificate.

Popular US talk show The View also weighed in on the Fake Melania talk, and were later criticised by Stephanie Grisham, a spokesperson for Melania. "All Fake, she is doing really well!" "Yesterday's show went beyond the petty, mean-girl spirit that we've grown accustomed to".

"People died, people lost family and people are hurting in Alabama", Grisham continued in her statement. An ABC spokesman declined to comment.
