A BONKERS "Fake Melania Trump" conspiracy theory has been pushed again after Donald and the first lady fly to Florida for Christmas.
The bizarre claims have emerged once more after the pair were pictured jetting to Mar-a-Lago on Wednesday evening.
Skeptical Americans headed straight to Twitter to post the photos and speculate on whether or not the woman next the president was actually his wife.
"This is not baron's mommy!" one user tweeted, followed by "#fakemelania strikes again."
Others pointed to Melania's nose as being the apparent "giveaway" that it is not her.
Some took the opportunity to quip that it could not be the real Melania as "she looks happy."
Several social media users suggested that the woman was the "same one as was pictured in October."
Just months ago, the rumor resurfaced after another photo of a smiling Melania, 50, went viral, prompting further unproven claims that Donald Trump uses a stand-in for his wife.
Flotus was pictured boarding Marine One on the south lawn of the White House with her husband, which triggered the #FakeMelania hashtag on Twitter.
The outlandish speculation claims Trump hired an actress because his wife refused to accompany him on the campaign trail, which brought him to Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Maryland on October 24 alone.
The rumor initially circulated on Twitter in 2017 that Melania Trump was using a body double to replace her in her public appearances.
The bizarre rumor grew out of a tweet from a California man, who, according to his bio, sells hemp syrup.
In a picture of President Trump and the First Lady walking across a plane tarmac, the man claimed that Melania wasn't the real Flotus, but an imposter.
He tweeted the picture alongside a separate picture of Melania and tried to draw differences between the two.
A spokesperson for the White House vehemently denied these claims.
East Wing communications director Stephanie Grisham told CNN: "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."
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."
