TV Producer Promotes Melania Trump ‘Body Double’ Conspiracy Theory: ‘Melania Has Rich Woman Hair’


Ally Maynard, a TV producer and frequent critic of President Donald Trump, echoed the claims of conspiracy theorists this week by alleging that the White House uses a body double of First Lady Melania Trump during public appearances.

Maynard, who’s worked frequently on shows for MTV, tweeted out the allegation to her more than 80,000 followers on Wednesday after Trump addressed reporters outside the White House.

“Who is that woman standing behind Trump because it is straight up not Melania,” the comedian/activist wrote in the caption to a video of the president.

“I’m trying not to feel like a crazy person but they don’t even have remotely the same nose!” Maynard added in a followup tweet.

She continued by posting a side-by-side photo comparison, which showed the purported differences between the “real” Melania and the “woman standing behind Trump.”

“Melania has rich woman hair. This woman, while her hair is nice, it is not ‘I have spent loads on upkeep’ rich person hair,” Maynard explained. “Melania also has a very specific post-nose job nose that’s tiny and pinched. And now I’m a conspiracy theorist!”

Maynard’s tweets promoting the conspiracy theory received hundreds of comments and retweets, and thousands of likes.

Several Twitter commenters agreed with her, including relatively high-profile users, such as David Slack, a writer who has worked on hit shows such as “Law & Order” and “Teen Titans.”

“I THOUGHT THE SAME THING. I rewound the DVR to check. That’s #FakeMelania. It has to be. I feel like I’m going insane which, of course, is the point,” Slack tweeted.

Others chided the right’s supposed penchant for conspiracy theorizing, while simultaneously entertaining the possibility of a #FakeMelania.

“One of the things I’ve most hated about the Republican camp the past few years is their propensity for buying into conspiracy (False flags etc). I hate that I’m even considering ‘First Lady body double,’ but seriously – they don’t look anything alike,” wrote one commenter.

This isn’t the first time rumors of a Melania impostor have surfaced. In 2017, the Washington Post felt compelled to “debunk” the conspiracy theory after a tweet by a man who owns a business selling hemp syrup went viral, receiving more than 70,000 comments on Twitter.

“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,” wrote Joe Vargas.

But the rumors have persisted. In March, a tweet from a progressive journalist, in which she pushed the Melania imposter theory.

“SHE HAD NO JOWLS YESTERDAY,” the Crooks and Liars blogger wrote in support of her theory.
