One of the more amusing and harmless conspiracy theories to emerge from the Trump era is that of the “fake Melania.”
Every few months, a new video emerges on social media that spark a firestorm of discussions as to whether or not the President hires body doubles to portray his wife, Melania Trump, at various public events, based on the fairly credible theory that Melania Trump despises her husband and wants no part in enabling his re-election.
A new video of Trump and his “wife” embracing each other and kissing at today’s rally has set tongues wagging yet again, as Melania Trump is notoriously averse to showing any affection to her husband in public. Social media users also decided that the woman’s face was different from Melania’s and that she was using her sunglasses to hide that she was a body double.

The president’s relationship with his wife Melania is infamous for being rather on the frosty side of things — unsurprisingly so, considering the way that his rampant infidelity led to a hush-money payment to a porn star and a criminal investigation that sent his personal lawyer Michael Cohen to prison.
While it’s probably not a body double, given Donald Trump’s performance as President, his long history of infidelity, and the many sexual harassment and assaults allegations against him — some of which allegedly occurred while Melania was in the house — can you blame her for not wanting to schlep around the campaign trail with him?
Twitter users were convinced:
Here's the tell: he leans in & they both react like they aren't sure if they should kiss on the lips, then realize they have to do SOMETHING because 100 cameras are on them so he settles for rubbing his mouth all over her face repeatedly.
That's not your wife, bro 😂

This is truly, truly disturbing. First, this categorically is not Melania and is a body double. Which in & of itself is not the oddest thing. But he invites her on stage. And then he grabs her and kisses her four times. https://t.co/lkQSD0TPBq
