No body double: Trump blasts #FakeMelania theories

President Trump was not amused by the goofy #FakeMelania conspiracy theories floating around the Internet - so he tweeted about it to his 59 million followers, calling it "fake news" fabricated by his media enemies.

Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce opined that The View hosts do not really believe Melania has a body double, accusing the panelists of seizing upon "an excuse to mock the first lady" by saying she looks short or appears to have a different face shape.

"The Fake News photoshopped pictures of Melania, then propelled conspiracy theories that it's actually not her by my side in Alabama and other places", he tweeted, without providing evidence.

Trump expressed similar disdain for fake news hits on the first lady in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News this week.

"Some people think the first lady is using an impostor to stand in for her", co-host Joy Behar said during the segment.

Claims Ms Trump has used a body double first surfaced in late 2017 during an appearance at a press conference alongside her husband.

"I've always found it sad that a group of women spend so much time attacking another woman, whose only goal is to help children", Grisham wrote. "You mean there are two women who have to pretend they're listening to (President Trump)?" One host allowed that the first lady might have been wearing flat shoes. "Sorry", Behar said of one photo.

Grisham also tweeted about the show, calling it "shameful". "People died, people lost family, people are hurting in Alabama", Grisham said Wednesday in an email.

"If our first lady, if I were a Democrat instead of a Republican, she'd be Jackie O times 20. She's handsome, and we're doing this in jest".
