A conspiracy theory has been circulating the internet that the real Melania Trump uses a body double. But Benanti’s Melania has come to set the record straight and tell the world that the #FakeMelania rumors are #FakeNews.
“It makes no sense,” she insists. “How can there be two Melania Trumps? Think about it! Doesn’t it seem crazy that there is even one?”
