Some of President Donald Trump’s critics pushed a “fake Melania” conspiracy” on Saturday after he was photographed with the First Lady at a memorial for Alabama tornado victims.
Here’s the photo that made liberals create a conspiracy theory:
"The visit by President Trump and first lady Melania Trump to tornado-ravaged Alabama set Twitter alight Saturday, thanks to a conspiracy theory that claims that a body double occasionally replaces the first lady at public events," the Washington Examiner reported.
The report added: "The #FakeMelania conspiracy appears to have originated in 2017 when Twitter user Joe Vargas — whose bio suggests he is the founder and CEO of a hemp oil company — posted a now-viral tweet with a video of the couple that focuses on Melania Trump’s face to claim that the first lady is not herself."
The hashtag #FakeMelania was trending on Saturday night:
Meanwhile, President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were meeting with tornado victims.
In a touching video posted by WVTM-TV, Trump is seen hugging tornado victims.
Don't expect the media to focus on this part of Trump's visit to Alabama.
