Trump is not happy about that Fake Melania conspiracy theory

"I've always found it sad that a group of women spend so much time attacking another woman, whose only goal is to help children", Grisham wrote.

Donald Trump has said a conspiracy theory alleging Melania Trump sometimes uses a body double during outings with him has been concocted by journalists doctoring images. The hashtag made it's first appearance a couple of years ago, and has resurfaced once or twice, including last week after a photo from the Trumps visiting a memorial was tweeted and went viral. "Instead, they go after her", Trump told Breitbart News in Monday's interview. "I wasn't going to go along with this but that one in that picture doesn't look like her. ..." "We went to pay our respects; it was a awful thing".

"That one does not look like her".

"The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania", he tweeted at the time.

Taking to Twitter (are you surprised?), Donald said: "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". That prompted co-host Joy Behar, who also disapproves of Trump, to say: "We're not here to be better people".

"@flotus & @potus traveled to Alabama to pay their respects & comfort victims of the tornado devastation. They want to see that", she said, prompting Behar to note that Obama had in fact produced his birth certificate.

The first lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham called the show's joking on the subject "shameful".

The conspiracy theory even featured in a segment on the popular chat show "The View".
