The hashtag "fake Melania" is blowing up Twitter again after the POTUS and FLOTUS went to Alabama to visit the victims of the massive tornado.
Instead of focusing on the humanitarian work by the First Lady, people are claiming that wasn't even her. People on Twitter—including even actor George Takei—are spreading the rumor that Melania uses a body double.
Stephanie Grisham, Director of Communications for Melania, fired back after the rumors appeared on Monday's episode of The View. She roundly dismissed the allegations and admonished people for focusing on the wrong thing.
"@flotus & @potus traveled to Alabama to pay their respects & comfort victims of the tornado devastation. In typical fashion, @theview chooses to laugh in the face of tragedy. Shameful."
Melania deserves better than the rumors. They've been dismissed in the past and many of the differences can be easily explained by different outfits and lighting.
