When is Melania Trump not Melania Trump? When internet conspiracy theorists decide that the Melania Trump-looking lady standing next to our illegitimate president is a secret imposter. Never mind that this women is OBVIOUSLY MELANIA WHAT ARE YOU EVEN TALKING ABOUT.
You know what’s fake for real? Donald’s “concern” for fallen soldiers. And a lot of his much touted charitable contributions.
Here’s the tweet that started the whole #FakeMelania thing.
This is not Melania. To think they would go this far & try & make us think its her on TV is mind blowing. Makes me wonder what else is a lie pic.twitter.com/JhPVmXdGit

The probem with trying to tell real Melania from #FakeMelania is that real Melania is also actually kind of Fake Melania.

I would be such a good fake Melania because my hair is fuckin flawless and I look bored or grossed out whenever Trump says anything too.

And his “charitable contributions” are basically nothing but hot air.

And he seems to have killed the Obamacare fix he earlier said he supported.
Two days ago, Trump said Obamacare was "dead."
Yesterday, he said he supported the bipartisan plan to fix it.
Today, he says he doesn't.

Also, he says “billions and billions” a lot.
