No body double: Trump blasts #FakeMelania theories

Social media users focused on footage of Melania Trump standing next to her husband at a press conference about hurricane relief for Puerto Rico and claimed the woman wearing black sunglasses and a coat had a different shape nose than the president's wife.

"The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania", he tweeted at the time.

President Donald Trump has responded to the 'Fake Melania' theory circulating on the internet. "I wasn't going to go along with this but that one in that picture doesn't look like her. ... Instead, they go after her", Trump told Breitbart News in Monday's interview.

"They are only getting more deranged with time!" said Trump.

In fact, the 5-foot-11 first lady had ditched her customary stilettos for sneakers to walk around the rough terrain with Trump.


"Manipulation is against photojournalism ethics", Ramsess said, adding that most newsrooms follow the ethics guidelines on the association's website.

The conspiracy theory even featured in a segment on the popular chat show "The View". "She's lovely, and we're doing this in jest". "We're here to have a good laugh".

The first lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham called the show's joking on the subject "shameful".

President Trump used his Twitter platform to propel a peculiar conspiracy theory about the first lady using a body double during the couple's visit to the Alabama town devastated by tornados earlier this month.

"People died, people lost family and people are hurting in Alabama", Grisham continued in her statement.
