The” Fake Melania” conspiracy conjecture has gone on for a while, with people online claiming photographs of the president’s spouse don’t quite look like her at various public occurrences. The First Lady’s spokesperson denied that she employs a figure double in 2017.
In the tweet, the president references his trip to Alabama over the weekend–when the conspiracy theory was reignited.
” The Fake News photoshopped pictures of Melania, then propelled conspiracy beliefs that it’s actually not her by my back in Alabama and other regions. They are simply getting more deranged with day !” the president wrote.
The Fake News photoshopped pictures of Melania, then propelled plot theories that it’s actually not her by my back in Alabama and other homes. They are only getting more deranged with day!

What’s unclear in the president’s tweet is what he entailed by the media photoshopping images of the First lady. Most of the conspiracy conjecture lives on social media where people compare screenshots of living images from public occurrences to other photos.
As Snopes wrote in 2017, one of the more widely circulated images looks different because it was filmed while it aired on Tv. When the image was compared to the actual footage on CNN’s website, it shows distorted.
