Melania Trump just showed the leftwing hosts of the ABC talk show “The View” that they picked the wrong First Lady to mess with after they fueled a ridiculous leftwing conspiracy about her by claiming that she has been using a body double.
Fox News reported that in the past few days, the hashtag #FakeMelania has gone viral on Twitter with liberal users alleging that Melania has been using a body double in some recent appearances. This week, “The View” sank to a new low by covering this conspiracy theory, with host Joy Behar gleefully beginning the segment by saying that “some people think the first lady is using an impostor.”
Behar indicated that she agrees with the conspiracy by pointing out a photo in which she thought Melania looked like a different person.
“I wasn’t going to go along with this but that one, in that picture, doesn’t look like her,” Behar said. “It’s a different shaped face.”
Cohost Sunny Hostin also got in on the action, saying that she spent over an hour studying Melania’s photos trying to get to the bottom of this.
“Melania is a very tall, statuesque woman and the one that we saw, the first one that we showed, she looks kind of short,” Hostin said. “Look how short she looks.”
Things got even worse when Behar attacked Melania’s marriage to her husband by saying that there’s an “an element of truth” to the theory that the First Lady does not enjoy spending time with President Donald Trump. Of course, Behar offered no solid evidence to back up this offensive claim, but her liberal cohosts ate it up.

Melania responds to “The View” with blistering statement
Refusing to take this lying down, Melania responded through her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham, who pointed out that the photos being used to push this conspiracy are of when the First Lady traveled to Alabama last week to pay her respects to the families of the 23 victims of the tornadoes there. Describing “The View” as “shameful,” Grisham also said that it was typical that the hosts would “laugh in the face of tragedy.”

Behar and her fellow hosts of “The View” claim to be all about “female empowerment” and “women supporting women,” but in reality, they only support females who are liberal. When it comes to conservative women, they have no problem throwing out sexist attacks with the goal of hitting below the belt. We applaud Melania for standing up to these leftwing bullies and for doing so with the class and dignity that she has shown time and time again in the face of adversity since moving into the White House.
