White House Reacts To Speculations Melania Trump Might Have A 'Body Double'

The speculation started when Mrs Trump appeared beside her husband, on South Lawn of the White House wearing large sunglasses which were covering a lot of her face.

The bizarre rumor further grew out of a Twitter post from a California man, who, according to his bio, sells hemp syrup. The tweet implied the first lady standing beside President Donald Trump last week wasn't actually the first lady, but an imposter. He compared an older image of the first lady to a tight shot of her -- as though this provided evidence that there are two different Trumps.

The White House dismissed the obvious falsehood, chastising those pursuing it.

"Once again, we find ourselves consumed with a ridiculous non-story when we could be talking about the work the first lady is doing on behalf of children, including the opioid crisis that is gripping our nation," East Wing communications director Stephanie Grisham told CNN.

The US Secret Service did not immediately respond to a CNN request for comment. But Jonathan Wackrow, a CNN contributor and former Secret Service agent who has previously served on the first family detail, said definitively: "The United States Secret Service doesn't use body doubles."

"Mrs. Trump's lead agent is a woman ... and she happens to look a little like her, but physically, she is much shorter," he said.

The lead agent, according to Wackrow, spent time on a previous assignment with the Obama family, which made her a good fit for Melania Trump.
