Does Melania Trump Really Have Body Double? The Conspiracy That Has Twitter Going Cray

Published

Melania Trump has a body double — well that’s what Twitter seems to think.

During a recent press conference on the White House lawn, Donald Trump spoke of the First Lady while she stood by the podium. But as “Melania,” clad in sunglasses and a trench coat, stood and nodded, folks couldn’t help but notice something a little off.

Comedian Andrea Wagner Barton was the first to joke up about the now viral conspiracy. “Will the real Melania please stand up?” she wrote on Facebook. “Is it me or during his speech today a decoy ‘stood in’ for Melania??”

She continued, “And….Why would the moron say ‘my wife, Melania, who happens to be right here…’ Seriously, watch very closely!”

People on Twitter of course are now having a field day with the fake Melania news.

This isn’t the fist time folks raised eyebrows over Melania’s presence. Earlier this month, The Donald made reference to the 47-year-old unfortunately not being able to join him during his tour, BUT, a woman, whom we all thought was the First Lady, was standing RIGHT THERE.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
