More Photos of 'Melania' on the Day In Question

"Nice to see Paula Abdul getting work tho," jokes one Twitter user.

The latest Trump conspiracy theory may just be the most ridiculous of all: First Lady Melania Trump might have a body double!

The topic is currently blowing up Twitter, as "Melania" quickly climbed the trends list in the United States on Wednesday over her appearance in a viral video.

The debate actually began last Friday with a Facebook post from actress Andrea Wagner Barton, who posted video of Melania standing next to President Donald Trump during a media interview. "Will the real Melania please stand up? Is it me or during his speech today a decoy 'stood in' for Melania??" she asked, alongside a side-by-side of the woman beside Trump and an older photo of Melania. The post got over 16k likes and 97k shares.

The topic then hit Twitter when user Joe Vargas posted a similar clip on his page Tuesday night, writing, "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." His post has now been shared over 8k times on Twitter, generating over 9k likes and some hilarious reactions.

Sorry to be a Debbie Downer on this conspiracy theory, but we did some extremely thorough investigating and Getty photos from the same day show Melania in the same outfit without her sunglasses on (below) -- it's clearly her. See even more shots from the day in the gallery at the top of this post.

That was fun while it lasted though, right?
