    Many users view the fact that the president appears so sensitive about media speculations about who is actually accompanying him on his visits around the country as evidence it might not really be FLOTUS Melania after all.

    Trump has taken to Twitter to yet again express his outrage over mainstream media supposedly Photoshopping pictures of Melania and then suggesting it’s not her standing by the president, such as in Alabama and other places he has recently been to. “They are only getting more deranged with time!” the POTUS exclaimed in indignation, prompting a lively debate in the comment section. 

    “Your wife is missing, replaced by an alien body double, and you’re busy tweeting? Get out there and look for her!” one suggested, whereas others dwelled on reports about Melania “being botoxed”; whereas the official reason for her absence is a kidney issue, like the case was last year also.

    Memes also came in abundance, with netizens speculating whether the images had indeed been Photoshopped:

    “For the last time, there is no Donald Trump here!” were words inscribed on a hilarious image of a Trump-like clown.

    Many countered Trump’s verbal attack, claiming he himself is a person of double standards and a Fake News president, who “propels these horrible false accusations that doctors and women commit infanticide”, bringing up the subject as one of the issues that Trump appeared to misinform the public about, as Republicans are set to pass the controversial “born alive after attempted abortions” bill.

    Many attempted to crack jokes instead, with one user recalling Melania “looking longingly at Trudeau”:

    One picked up on the word “photoshopped” in Trump’s remarks, suggesting his devotees at election campaign rallies were likewise “added” to the pictures:

    Another eagerly engaged in a conspiracy theory, posting a link to a video that suggested that Melania actually has a body double, and that it’s actually a “he”:

    Meanwhile, there were those claiming that he probably failed to notice it was “a fake Melania” standing by his side:
