The Internet is abuzz with claims that First Lady Melania Trump is using a body double.

The rumors started online after Melania Trump appeared next to her husband, President Donald Trump, while he addressed reporters on the White House lawn on Friday. The First Lady is standing by his side wearing a trench coat and dark sunglasses.

What appears to be fueling the conspiracy theory is this comment by President Trump: “My wife, Melania, who happens to be right here.”

There is no evidence to suggest that the woman in the video isn’t Melania Trump, but that hasn’t stopped people from commenting online. On Wednesday, Melania was trending on Twitter.

This isn’t the first time that a conspiracy theory has been floated about using a body double. During the 2016 presidential campaign there were rumors that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was using a body double.
