President Trump was not amused by the goofy #FakeMelania conspiracy theories floating around the Internet - so he tweeted about it to his 59 million followers, calling it "fake news" fabricated by his media enemies.
President Trump unloaded on the mainstream media Wednesday after "fake news" outlets reported on a bogus conspiracy theory regarding First Lady Melania Trump; saying "they are only getting more deranged with time".
Commentators on "The View" noted that the woman with Trump last week looked shorter than the president in photos.
Claims Ms Trump has used a body double first surfaced in late 2017 during an appearance at a press conference alongside her husband. "They are only getting more deranged with time!" the president tweeted.
"When you're in college or high school, there is the pretty girl who is nice, and you go with the marker to mark up her locker and then you gossip about her and you call her names".

There were rumblings in KC about Ford being a bust after being taken with the 23rd overall pick in the 2014 draft out of Auburn. San Francisco is clearly betting on the fact that the 2018 version of Ford is what they'll be getting moving forward.
Co-host Brian Kilmeade remarked as an aside, "There's no one that has the president's back like the first lady".
The "View" panelists weighed in on several photos of the First Lady during the segment, discussing whether the woman in the photos was really her.
The "Fake Melania" theory first emerged from a tweet by Joe Vargas, CEO of Buy Legal Meds, in October 2017.
Grisham also pointed out the context behind some of the pictures that the women on "The View" were laughing about in their discussion.
The first lady's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham called the show's joking on the subject "shameful". "They want to see that", she said, prompting Behar to note that Obama had in fact produced his birth certificate. An ABC spokesman declined to comment.
