President Donald Trump has had it with the #fakeMelania conspiracy theories that have been circulating on social media.

However, after almost three years, the President has responded to the rumours.

"The Fake News photoshopped pictures of Melania, then propelled conspiracy theories that it's actually not her by my side in Alabama and other places", Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.

Trump blames the so-called "fake news" for altering the photos and says, "They are only getting more deranged with time!". "I watched the President and First Lady hug, listen to and comfort people who had lost everything".

After panelists on Monday's episode of the daytime talk show "The View" questioned and joked about whether multiple photos actually show a stand-in alongside President Trump, Melania's rep, Stephanie Grisham, slammed the segment.

Grisham also pointed out the context behind some of the pictures that the women on "The View" were laughing about in their discussion.

Bruce, who is president of Independent Women's Voice, elaborated on the "mean girl environment" that led to the popular movie Mean Girls.

As Snopes wrote in 2017, one of the more widely circulated images looks different because it was filmed while it aired on TV. "They want to see that", she said, prompting Behar to note that Obama had in fact produced his birth certificate.

Melania Trump has stepped up her public appearances with her husband and even made statements seeming to defend his behavior, such as saying, "Sometimes you need to fight back, I'm sorry", with regard to cyberbullying.

"I spent, like, an hour on Saturday involved in this", co-host Sunny Hostin said.

Ironically, it seems the First Lady herself is a fan of conspiracy theories. "Yesterday's show went beyond the petty, mean-girl spirit that we've grown accustomed to". "People died, people lost family, people are hurting in Alabama".
