- There’s a conspiracy theory that first lady Melania Trump has a body double.
- The theory got new life on Tuesday when images of her leaving Air Force One in Brussels emerged, with some on social media saying she didn’t look like herself.
- Other images of Trump in Brussels look totally normal. She probably doesn’t have a body double.
As the first lady exited Air Force One with her husband in Brussels on Tuesday, some people noticed that she didn’t quite look like herself.
According to the theory, Trump has a body double who stands in for her at different times. It’s part of a larger narrative about Trump acting secretively and seemingly unlike herself, fueled by camera angles and fashion choices that can obscure parts of her face, as well as a Secret Service agent who looks a little like her.
Images of Trump leaving Air Force One are bringing the theory back.
Trump probably doesn’t have a body double — it’s not something previous first ladies have had. And she looks more definitely like herself in other images from NATO meetings in Brussels.
See? It’s just good ol’ Melania, and definitely not a fake.
