Photos Of Melania Trump On Europe Trip Set Internet Abuzz With New ‘Body Double’ Conspiracy Theories
Some photos of Melania Trump snapped during the president’s visit to Europe have fueled a new round of conspiracy theories, British newspaper The Independent reports.
The report, titled “Pictures of Melania Trump in Brussels prompt fresh First Lady ‘body double’ rumours,” traces the origination of conspiracy theories about Melania Trump having a body double to cover up her estrangement from the president and then shares fresh photos and reactions from the president’s trip to Europe, where he is currently playing golf before meeting with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin on Monday.
The president has a history of making awkward remarks that suggest his wife is not around when she appears to be standing right next to him.
Video of Melania getting off a plane in Brussels and looking very different that normal spurred a fresh round of suspicious tweets.

Trump allies, like gossip site TMZ, have mocked the conspiracy theory.
