Was That Fake? - Melania Trump body double

A conspiracy has emerged that First Lady Melania Trump has a body double.

Actress Andrea Wagner Barton posted pictures and video from a Presidential news conference on Facebook, saying the First Lady *kinda* looked not real.

People latched on to the plastic rim around the nose on her sunglasses, saying it looked like one of those fake noses attached to glasses that were used in children's costumes. Critics are also saying Mrs. Trump's hair looks a bit unhealthy, not like the First Lady's usual smooth locks.

Some people started accusing The White House of trying to fool the public.

If you look at a side-by-side comparison of Facebook video from the news conference and how it looked on high definition broadcast video, you can observe the distortion on Facebook. Is the body double assertion fake? The White House says absolutely.

If the word of the federal government does not satisfy you, Getty Images has plenty of photographic proof from that day of the First Lady with the same clothing ensemble at the same event without the sunglasses, but that is not stopping people from clinging to their theories.

Is In-N-Out Burger really the favorite fast food of Texas? A map posted in a Business Insider article based it on the amount of visits Foursquare users made to each fast food chain, and divided that by the amount of locations that restaurant has in the state.

Foursquare's senior director of communications chimed in and apologized, admitting the statistics were rather confusing. As to whether it's fake, let's just say Foursquare agreed to send FOX 26 News the raw data.
