On Wednesday, social media users watched a video and latched onto the conspiracy theory that Melania Trump … well, that perhaps the White House used an impersonator instead of trotting out the actual First Lady to support her husband.

We’re not saying that we believe it, but the person who uploaded this video to Twitter wrote:

"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."

Watching the video, you don’t have to believe that the Trump camp would do something so outlandish to see why, in this short clip, people would notice that Melania doesn’t quite look like herself. Especially around the mouth.

But … what would Trump, or anyone, possibly have to gain by trotting out a double?

It’s too outlandish to be true.

… Right?
