"I personally watched the president and first lady hug, listen to and comfort people who had lost everything - and the "ladies" of The View instead chose to laugh and joke about a body-double conspiracy".

"That one does not look like her".

The co-hosts on the show discussed the possibility that the first lady was replaced by a look-alike in several public photo events with President Donald Trump. Subsequently, Fox & Friends had it on air, so obviously it went to Trump's Twitter. "They are only getting more deranged with time!" the president wrote.

"When there's a rumor like this, and memes all over the place, I think it catches on because there's an element of truth to the idea that she doesn't want to spend time with him", Behar added.

While most of the other co-hosts talked down the conspiracy theory, they were criticized by many on social media for giving it any credence at all.

Claims Ms Trump has used a body double first surfaced in late 2017 during an appearance at a press conference alongside her husband. "You mean there are two women who have to pretend they're listening to (President Trump)?".

One host surmised Melania might have been wearing flats.

The ABC hosts debated whether an impostor had traveled with Trump to Alabama to check on tornado damage and survivors.

In fact, the 5-foot-11 first lady had ditched her customary stilettos for sneakers to walk around the rough terrain with Trump.

Grisham also condemned "The View" segment on Twitter.

"She's lovely and we're doing this in jest", Navarro replied, also pointing out that people had criticized former First Lady Michelle Obama in a similar way.
