First lady Melania Trump’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, called out “The View” hosts Tuesday after they devoted time on the show to attacking the first lady over a resurfaced body double conspiracy.
“I’ve always found it sad that a group of women spend so much time attacking another woman, whose only goal is to help children, but yesterday’s episode went beyond the petty mean girl spirit that we’ve grown accustomed to,” Grisham told The Daily Caller.

“People died, people lost family, people are hurting in Alabama,” she added. “I watched the president and first lady hug, listen to, and comfort people who had lost everything – and the ‘ladies’ of The View instead chose to laugh and joke about a body double conspiracy.” (RELATED: Ivanka Turns Heads In Gorgeous Yellow Plaid Skirt Suit)
Grisham continued, “They really should consider devoting that air time to helping people.”
Late Monday night, the first lady’s spokeswoman tweeted to the ABC daytime talk show, calling it “shameful” that they had dedicated time to “laugh” at the resurfaced conspiracy about the first lady after President Donald Trump and FLOTUS traveled to the tornado-ravaged area of Alabama to comfort those who lost loved ones in the storm.

“@flotus & @potus traveled to Alabama to pay their respects & comfort victims of the tornado devastation. In typical fashion, @theview chooses to laugh in the face of tragedy. Shameful,” Grisham wrote

The headline from “The View” read, “FAKE MELANIA CONSPIRACIES RETURN: The internet is buzzing again with theories that first lady Melania Trump is using an impostor to stand in for her — the co-hosts investigate,” along with a clip from the show Monday.
During the episode, the co-hosts laughed about the conspiracy. At one point, Joy Behar said the reason a rumor like this catches on is because “there is an element of truth to the idea that she [Melania] doesn’t want to spend time with him [Trump].”
