Melania and her team are firing back at the hosts of "The View" after they aired a despicable segment about the First Lady. The clip went viral online and caused a lot of controversies.
One of the hosts of the show, Joy Behar, accused Melania of not actually attending her appearances in Alabama. She perpetuated the conspiracy theory that Melania actually has a body double who was there in her place.
"Co-host Joy Behar explained that 'some people think the first lady is using an impostor' during public appearances, pointing to a viral conspiracy theory that is labeled with the hashtag #FakeMelania. The ABC News gabfest then displayed tweets in which people speculate that a stand-in actress replaces the president’s wife on occasion," reported Fox News.
Behar claimed that some of the images didn't even look like Melania. She said her face looked very different than at other times.
“I wasn’t going to go along with this but that one, in that picture, doesn’t look like her,” Behar said. “It’s a different shaped face.”
Now, Melania and her advisors are speaking up. They have labeled Behar's comments as being "shameful" and condemned the program for spreading such fake rumors.
"A spokeswoman for Melania Trump ripped 'The View' as 'shameful' and said the ABC News program laughs in the face of tragedy after a segment exploring whether or not there is a body double for the first lady," wrote Fox.
The White House Director of Communications for the First Lady also commented on Twitter about the "The View" and their gossip. She mentioned how distasteful it was to bring up such a conspiracy about a time when Melania was in Alabama to pay respects to victims of the recent tornado tragedy.
“.@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,” Grisham wrote.
