President Donald Trump accused "the fake news" of photoshopping images of first lady Melania Trump and pushing conspiracy theories it was not her by his side while touring tornado-ravaged Alabama.
His comments came in a Wednesday tweet:
"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!"
TV's "Inside Edition" had noted Internet conspiracy theorists were asking whether that indeed was the first lady at his side during the trip to Alabama. And it reported it was not the first time some were left wondering whether the president had brought along a body double.
And People magazine asked whether the first lady actually has a body double making official appearances. But it noted the White House has called the idea "ridiculous" in the past.
