The White House Spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham, in an interview with the Washington Examiner, said that they find themselves again consumed with an outrageous non-story, and now they are doing everything possible to shut down this bizarre rumor going viral on social media alleging that first lady Melania Trump has a body double.
“Once again we find ourselves consumed with a ridiculous non-story,” spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told the Washington Examiner.
The conspiracy theory started on Wednesday as twitter user @JoeVargas uploaded a clip from CNN of the president and First Lady going on a trip to Secret Service facility in Maryland.
Vargas later gave an explanation of his theory that the first lady has a body double that joins the president on trips which quickly circulated on social media.
One Twitter user joked, “this is a case for the FBI.”
However, the White House is quickly refuting those rumors, adding “we could be talking about the work the First Lady is doing on behalf of children, including the opioid crisis that is gripping our nation.”
For those who want real-life proof, the first lady is scheduled to donate her inaugural ball gown to the Smithsonian Institute on Friday.
