Melania Trump's Campaign Speech May Have Been a Response to Those Body Double Rumors

Melania Trump is known for taking the strong and silent approach — so silent, in fact, that when photos of her and Donald Trump traveling to the final debate came out, many resurfaced a theory that a Melania body double escorted POTUS to events, not the First Lady herself. It’s a theory that places little faith in FLOTUS’ commitment to the campaign — and perhaps that’s why Melania decided to offer a rare speech in favor of her husband in Atglen, PA.

Meanwhile, I watched Donald continue to work hard to keep people informed and calm, to protect our economy, and make hard and unpopular decisions to do all he could to keep us all safe.”

She also, shockingly, took the time to praise her husband’s social media activity, despite increasing bullying behavior and sharing of untruths that has led Twitter to flag his account on multiple occasions.

“For the first time in history the citizens of this country get to hear directly and instantly from their President every single day through social media,” she proclaimed. “I do not always agree what the way he says things, but it is important to him that he speaks directly to the people he serves.”
