A new conspiracy theory has emerged on the internet, and for once, it is actually quite delightful! Not in the "oh my god they think spraying vinegar into the air will keep the chemtrails away?" way, but in the "I WANT TO BELIEVE" kind. And that is the theory that Melania Trump has a body double who has been making appearances for her.

According to some internet folks, the Melania we see in this interview has a TOTALLY DIFFERENT NOSE from the real Melania. Sure, you could say she is maybe just wearing weird glasses, but what is the fun in that?

WE AT WONKETTE ARE 100% HERE FOR THIS.

Real picture of Wonkette chatcave right now.

It actually makes a certain amount of sense. Clearly, Melania is repulsed by her terrible husband, and skeeves his very touch. It would be quite reasonable for her to want to hire someone to do that for her. I know I would.

Let's be real. All Melania truly signed up for was a super rich old husband who was supposed to keel over and die and leave her lots of money. She did not sign up to be married to the worst and most humiliating president the country has ever seen. How is she ever going to rejoin New York society now?

I have an additional theory to posit as well here -- that there are multiple Melanias, but that they are all robots, with slightly different noses. It could happen! We all saw "Small Wonder" as children. The real Melania is somewhere on a tropical island drinking daiquiris and shtupping virile young pool boys.

IT COULD HAPPEN. And I would totally watch the Lifetime movie about it.

Add some money to our tip jars so we can all hire body doubles!

Alex Díaz de la Portilla on Facebook

Alex Díaz de la Portilla, former Florida Republican state senator, is in hot water over a leaked WhatsApp chat log that appears to show campaign workers chatting about destroying or disappearing absentee ballots filled out for the candidate's opponent in the nonpartisan county election, according to the Miami New Times. Díaz de la Portilla ultimately came in third in the May 2018 special election for a seat on the Miami-Dade County Commission, so even if some of his people did deep-six some ballots, it didn't apparently help him. Clearly, these pikers could have learned a lot from the experts in North Carolina about electoral fuckery.

Still, you have to appreciate just how brilliantly Díaz de la Portilla plays the role of a local pol accused of just a teensy bit of ratfucking.

Under the Trump administration, the Environmental "Protection" Agency has adopted the vital mission of doing everything it can to prop up the dying coal industry, largely because 1) Coal CEO Robert Murray is among Donald Trump's best billionaire buds and 2) every last trace of Barack Obama's presidency must be eradicated. To that end, the New York Times reports the EPA is now planning to "change how it calculates the health risks of air pollution," to make it easier to reverse Obama's "Clean Power Plan" regulations and replace them with far dirtier air, for coal company fun and profit. It's remarkably similar to another bit of EPA fuckery from December, when the agency decided it was no longer "appropriate and necessary" to regulate mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants, claiming that the costs of regulating the neurotoxin was very very burdensome and wouldn't provide any real savings by comparison. In both cases, fucking around with the math and redefining pollutants as No Big Deal are at the heart of the agency's claims that coal plants can spew more pollution without doing any harm.

Now, before you freak out, we will not be making you do math. Stop whining, you. Rather, we just want to highlight once again how Team Trump changes the definitions of things to give a great big benefit to dirty energy while insisting that it's "protecting" the environment.
