Conspiracy Theorists Think Footage Proves Melania Trump Has Body Double
So you're married to the President of the US, right. I know it's a stretch, but just imagine. And there you are one day, sitting at home on your luxurious sofa, in front of your massive telly, wearing your scruffiest pyjamas (which, of course, probably cost more than the GDP of some countries).
You flick on the news and breathe a sigh of relief as you see your body double taking on your FLOTUS duties, saving you the bother of leaving the house. All in a day's work.
Sounds far-fetched? Maybe, but that's exactly what the Internet is speculating with regards to Melania Trump, as 'she' visited Columbus, Ohio with husband Donald Trump. Well, who could blame her for thinking 'fuck it, I'm staying here' in the midst of Stormy Daniels' allegations?
Whatever she ended up doing, people don't think she was with her husband on 24 August, that's for sure. It wasn't long after the Trumps arrived in Columbus that people on the Internet were coming up with theories that alleged it wasn't Melania at all, but a stand-in.
Forty-eight-year-old Melania (or Pseduo-Melania, at least) was filmed wearing a white pencil skirt suit with a polka dot blouse and shades - y'know, because the sun was out and that.
However, one unconvinced Twitter user posted: "Hair colour and hair parting wrong, blouse wrong, jacket collar wrong, logo on sunglasses missing on double... it defo ain't her."
Hang on a second - maybe she'd taken a trip to the hairdressers? Decided on a little change?!
According to the MailOnline, others began to analyse her appearance right down to her posture, poses and weight, with some suggesting the person they were seeing in video footage was around 20lbs heavier than Melania and that the giveaway was in her fuller face.

If it is Melania and people are saying she's put on some timber, she'll be fuming.
Another person wrote: "What's with the fake Melania on Trump's trip to Ohio yesterday? I don't know who that is in the polka dot top but it sure ain't her at Andrews or at Columbus. MSM claiming it is."
Where did all these FLOTUS experts come from?!

People were concerned over the fact that the First Lady's hair looked darker and her parting was more to the side than 'usual'.
The MailOnline reports that last October, social media users went in with allegations that a Melania clone is somewhere out there.
Critics zeroed in on footage of Trump as he addressed the media about hurricane relief for Puerto Rico that showed the First Lady, wearing her large black sunglasses, standing behind her husband nodding.
At the press conference that Trump and 'Melania' attended, the 72-year-old President uttered the words: "My wife, Melania, who happens to be right here..."
He was stating the obvious, yes, but people claimed that he was trying to cover for the fact she was actually somewhere else.
So what do you think? Is this a fake Melania? Keep the conspiracy theories coming, Internet. Never change.
