A conspiracy theory that first lady Melania Trump has been replaced by a body double has gone viral. The theory went from tongue-in-cheek to a full-blown conspiracy after Andrea Wagner Barton, an actress and comedian, posted a Facebook status on Friday. “Is it me or during his speech today a decoy ‘stood in’ for Melania??” Barton said. As of Wednesday afternoon, the post had been shared more than 97,000 times. The genesis of the theory isn’t exactly clear. However, the evidence people have been using include a strikingly similar-looking Secret Service agent, President Donald Trump’s apparent slip-ups regarding his wife’s whereabouts, and what they say is the first lady’s sometimes altered appearance.
