Trump is not happy about that Fake Melania conspiracy theory

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.

“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. They are only getting more deranged with time!” Trump tweeted.

His favorite morning TV program, “Fox & Friends,” reported on the body-double theory Wednesday as the show’s hosts weighed in on a loopy discussion that aired Monday on ABC’s “The View.”

The ABC hosts debated whether an impostor had traveled with Trump to Alabama to check on tornado damage and survivors.

“The View” hosts had commented on how the woman at Trump’s side in photos of the trip appeared shorter than usual and had a different facial structure than the first lady’s.

One host surmised Melania might have been wearing flats.

In fact, the 5-foot-11 first lady had ditched her customary stilettos for sneakers to walk around the rough terrain with Trump.

Trump complained about press coverage of his wife during an interview this week with the conservative Breitbart News.

“If our first lady, if I were a Democrat instead of a Republican, she’d be Jackie O times 20. Instead, they go after her,” Trump said Monday.

Toward the end of the debate on “The View,” contributor Ana Navarro-Cardenas, who opposes Trump, said: “Let’s have fun with Melania. She’s beautiful, and we’re doing this in jest.”

Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s spokeswoman, said the episode “went beyond the petty mean-girl spirit that we’ve grown accustomed to. People died, people lost family, people are hurting in Alabama.”
