Outrageous Melania Trump Conspiracy Theory Gains Traction On Social Media

Conspiracy theories get circulated all the time, and many of them are so completely laughable that they get summarily dismissed after a few chuckles. However, once in awhile a truly bizarre one will slip through the cracks and wind up capturing a ton of attention. That’s what’s going on right about now with this theory that’s being bandied about on the First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump. As Fox News Insider shares, some eagle-eyed observers believe that she has been using a body double for some appearances with her husband.

That’s right, when you think you’re seeing President Donald Trump and his wife, you’re actually looking at POTUS and a stand-in, or so the theory goes. It all started off with some posts on social media, and it took off like wildfire from that point.

“Who's awake right now? I need to show you guys something that blows my mind and is really creepy. Seriously,” shared one user. “This is not Melania. To think they would go this far & try & make us think its her on TV is mind blowing. Makes me wonder what else is a lie. I initially didn't notice, but thought it was strange when he said 'my wife Melania, she's right here' to try & convince media it was her.”

“Will the real Melania please stand up? Is it me or during his speech today a decoy “stood in” for Melania?? And....,” wrote another commenter. “Why would the moron say “my wife, Melania, who happens to be right here... Seriously, watch very closely!”

Included with the posts were photographic evidence to support the theories, and it’s being claimed that the ‘Melania’ in the photos is actually another woman with a fake nose and giant sunglasses. While that sounds pretty outrageous right off the bat, many users bought right into it without batting an eye

“This is scary af. That’s clearly not her! Where is the real Melania??????” asked one user.

Of course, not everyone was sold on the crack investigative schools of those that started the theory. Many weren’t very kind while pointing out that they didn’t buy it.

“So leftists claim that Melania Trump has a body double, yet pointing out changes in the Las Vegas shooting timeline is conspiracy theory?” shared one user.

“Liberal idiots on twitter are actually claiming this is NOT Melania Trump and it's a STUNT DOUBLE. Liberalism really is a mental disorder,” wrote another commenter.

Name calling is par for the course on social media, so we won’t get too hung up on that, but it is fascinating to see how some users just immediately accepted this theory at face value. We’re going to fashion a guess that’s a byproduct of the anti-Trump mindset that some users are afflicted with. It’s certainly their prerogative as to whether or not they care for the president, but we always need to be mindful of the risk that our beliefs can cause us to put blinders on. As such, we’ll give the users that bought into this one a slight pass, but we will encourage them to at least consider the possibility that they may be taking their beliefs a bit too far.
