A crazy new conspiracy theory about the First Lady has recently gotten the attention of the Internet. Some Facebook and Twitter users seem to think that Melania Trump has been replaced by a body double after a recent TV appearance. The images have sparked a heated debate and, of course, plenty of memes and jokes. Following is a transcript of the video.

There's a new conspiracy theory about Melania Trump.

People on Twitter think she might have a body double.

Donald Trump: "My wife, Melania, who happens to be right here."

A woman on Facebook started the debate.

Then a man named Joe Vargas spread it further.

Other people started to chime in on the conspiracy.

Some pointed out a height difference in the photos.

Others thought her face looked different, and the glasses were used as a disguise.

There's also a Secret Service agent that resembles her.

People think the agent could be the body double.

It quickly turned into a meme, with plenty of jokes.

Ultimately, it's not true.

A side-by-side comparison shows this is Melania.

Other photos from that day also show it was her.

Here's a look at Melania without her glasses.

While the theory has been debunked, the meme lives on.
