Donald Trump raised eyebrows when he completely forgot his wife Melania was standing next to him during a speech in Florida last month – and now the internet has a wild theory about why.
Conspiracists out there will love this: the theory is Melania has actually left Donald, and for the last few weeks, the FLOTUS has been played by an imposter.
Absolutely convinced Melania is being played by a Melania impersonator these days. Theory: she left him weeks ago https://t.co/GDjX5Sr4L1— Marina Hyde (@MarinaHyde) October 13, 2017
What started off as an amusing joke has actually gathered some steam, as POTUS watchers have noticed some behaviour from the couple that have aroused suspicions.
For one, Donald well and truly forgot Melania was standing centimetres away from him when addressing the crowd while in Florida to assess the damage done by Hurrican Irma.
“I just want to thank everybody, the first responders, on behalf of myself, our Vice President… Melania really wanted to be with us,” Trump said, as Melania stood silently by his side.
Was this because she actually wasn’t there – and an imposter was standing in her place?

Melania’s love of wearing sunglasses has long been documented, however it’s her recent habit of donning shades at night that has added even more fuel to the imposter fire.
The Independent reports Melania’s night shades fascination started after the first family returned from a “working vacation” in New Jersey in late August.

Since then, there’s been at least two more occasions when the FLOTUS has shielded her eyes at night.

Did @MELANIATRUMP just discover sunglasses? What is she hiding?— Mary (@lovealaska1105) September 14, 2017
Has anyone else found it odd that Melania has been wearing sunglasses in rain, fog, night? https://t.co/64NnFAgp6O— Lily (@LilyMazahery) August 30, 2017
The theory has even seen some take a good, long look at Melania’s face to see if they can notice any changes.
Hmmm dunno zoomed in, still not sure ]]>😆
