Is There Any Credibility to the Melania Trump Body Double Conspiracy Theory?

Here’s how it all started.

While the Melania Trump body double conspiracy theory has been doing the rounds for some months now, it really kicked up an internet storm when comedienne and actress Andrea Wagner Barton posted on Facebook that she thought it was not Melania Trump but a body double standing alongside President Trump on the White House lawn as he spoke to reporters recently.

“Will the real Melania please stand up?” read Barton’s Facebook post. “Is it me or during his speech today a decoy ‘stood in’ for Melania??”

Her justification for the suspicion was, “Why would the moron say “my wife, Melania, who happens to be right here…Seriously, watch very closely!…”

Barton’s FB post, which features the White House lawn video of Trump’s interaction with reporters along with photographs of Melania with and without sunglasses, went viral on the internet fetching as many as 108,000 shares in real quick time.

Not only did the post attract Shares and Likes, it set off a chain reaction of tweets, posts, GIFs, and memes – many of them posted in jest while others seriously buying into the conspiracy theory angle.

Here’s a mix of responses from the jokers and the believers of the body double conspiracy theory. It is your discretion and prerogative to decide which is which, and of course arrive at your own conclusions.

This one is from respected Guardian columnist Marina Hyde. Is she serious or joking? Who knows!

What added fuel to fire and played the catalyst in the conspiracy theory going viral, came from a Twitter account that most people trust,, supporting the conspiracy theory with some seemingly damning logic.

Now, here’s a funny one!

So far, the President and the First Lady have abstained from commenting. But, the dam can break anytime.
