President Donald Trump accused the news media of doctoring photos to push a conspiracy theory about the first lady using a body double.

Trump claims that photos of his wife were altered to make it appear that a look-alike accompanied him to Alabama last week to survey tornado damage.

The US president's outburst came after some social media users suggested the First Lady looked different during the couple's recent visit to Alabama to pay their respects to 23 victims who died in a tornado. "If our first lady, if I were a Democrat instead of a Republican, she'd be Jackie O times twenty. Instead, they go after her", Trump told Breitbart News in Monday's interview. "They are only getting more deranged with time!" tweeted the President.

However, co-host Abby Huntsman did object to the segment at one point saying, "I think Melania's a lovely woman", and that she didn't like spending time on the topic.

Co-host Brian Kilmeade remarked as an aside, "There's no one that has the president's back like the first lady".

Bruce, who is president of Independent Women's Voice, elaborated on the "mean girl environment" that led to the popular movie Mean Girls. "I wasn't going to go along with this but that one in that picture doesn't look like her. ..."

Grisham also pointed out the context behind some of the pictures that the women on "The View" were laughing about in their discussion.

The "Fake Melania" theory first emerged from a tweet by Joe Vargas, CEO of Buy Legal Meds, in October 2017. Hosts of the ABC program debated whether an impostor had traveled with Trump.
