And we don’t know what to think.
Unsurprisingly, the past few months have been no exception.
From her red gloves baffling the internet and her breaking a New Year tradition to being the subject of a recent sexist joke by her husband Donald Trump, the past few weeks have been all about Melania.
But it isn’t her behaviour that has panicked the public, it’s her lack of it, with members of the public voicing their concern that Melania has been replaced with a ‘fake Melania’.
The conspiracy theory started back in 2017, when viewers didn’t believe that the woman by the President’s side was actually the real First Lady, noticing a difference in her facial features.
And so began the ‘fake Melania’ conspiracy, with online users speculating that a body double had been recruited to stand by Donald Trump’s side.
This week, the Fake Melania conspiracy theories returned as viewers didn’t believe that new photos of the First Lady were the real Melania Trump.
In fact, the speculation grew so loud that the President actually spoke out about them, taking as per usual to his Twitter account.
‘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,' Trump tweeted. ‘They are only getting more deranged with time!’
