In the wake of some truly disturbing news – the Ethiopian Airlines plane crash near Addis Ababa, parcel bombs found in London and Glasgow, R. Kelly’s vehement denial of all sexual abuse charges – there’s one headline circulating worldwide that has given us nothing but joy: #fakemelania.
The body double conspiracy theory is back with a vengeance, as Donald Trump visited a tornado-struck Alabama with Melania Trump in tow – or did he? Because the woman standing next to him, paying respect to the victims, certainly looked ‘different’ than the real deal. Eagle-eyed commentators have pointed out that the woman in question was shorter, had jowls and an altogether different chin, and even walked and waved in a manner that felt more relaxed. As for the clincher? She’s holding his hand.
We’ll let you be the judge here. But before that, a couple of laughs are in order, courtesy of a hashtag that promises to sporadically resurface as long as Trump is in power. Is it 2021 yet?
