Trump Just Lost It on Twitter and Accused Media of Photoshopping Photos of Melania Trump

Donald Trump is having a rough Wednesday.

This morning Trump accused news outlets, without any evidence whatsoever, of doctoring photographs to fuel an unfounded conspiracy theory that first lady Melania Trump employs a body double to appear with the president at public events.

This is NOT normal, and if anything this tweet will make people talk about the “controversy” more.

“The Fake News photoshopped pictures of Melania, then propelled conspiracy theories that it’s actually not her by my side in Alabama and other places. They are only getting more deranged with time!” he tweeted.

The conspiracy theory bubbled up again after people online suggested a body double stood in for the first lady last week when Trump toured tornado damage in Alabama. ABC’s “The View” discussed the theory this week on air.

“You mean there are two women who have to pretend they are listening to him?” co-host Joy Behar joked.

Stephanie Grisham, a spokesman for Melania Trump, called the ABC talk show hosts “shameful” for bringing up the topic.

“@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,” she tweeted on Monday.
