Michelle Obama Looks Back at Transition from Obama Presidency to Trump Presidency

Michelle Obama is looking back on her husband Barack Obama‘s peaceful transition of power to Donald Trump after the 2016 election amid the current president’s attempts to change the results of the 2020 election.

Trump continues to claim that he won the election, even though the election has been called for Joe Biden.

“This week, I’ve been reflecting a lot on where I was four years ago. Hilary Clinton had just been dealt a tough loss by a far closer margin than the one we’ve seen this year. I was hurt and disappointed—but the votes had been counted and Donald Trump had won. The American people had spoken. And one of the great responsibilities of the presidency is to listen when they do. So my husband and I instructed our staffs to do what George and Laura Bush had done for us: run a respectful, seamless transition of power—one of the hallmarks of American democracy. We invited the folks from the president-elect’s team into our offices and prepared detailed memos for them, offering what we’d learned over the past eight years,” Michelle wrote on Instagram on Monday (November 16).

She continued, “I have to be honest and say that none of this was easy for me. Donald Trump had spread racist lies about my husband that had put my family in danger. That wasn’t something I was ready to forgive. But I knew that, for the sake of our country, I had to find the strength and maturity to put my anger aside. So I welcomed Melania Trump into the White House and talked with her about my experience, answering every question she had—from the heightened scrutiny that comes with being First Lady to what it’s like to raise kids in the White House.”

Michelle concluded, “I knew in my heart it was the right thing to do—because our democracy is so much bigger than anybody’s ego. Our love of country requires us to respect the results of an election even when we don’t like them or wish it had gone differently—the presidency doesn’t belong to any one individual or any one party. To pretend that it does, to play along with these groundless conspiracy theories—whether for personal or political gain—is to put our country’s health and security in danger. This isn’t a game. So I want to urge all Americans, especially our nation’s leaders, regardless of party, to honor the electoral process and do your part to encourage a smooth transition of power, just as sitting presidents have done throughout our history.”

Nope, 'Fake Melania' Didn't Show Up for Trump's False Victory Speech on Election Night

An entertaining conspiracy theory that has been spreading for the past couple weeks is that Melania Trump has a body double who has been attending events in her place, though it has been debunked.

The real Melania was by her husband President Trump‘s side while he gave a speech in the late hours of election night on Wednesday morning (November 4) in Washington, D.C.

Melania didn’t wear her signature sunglasses while appearing with the First Family inside the White House.

While the body double rumors have been going on for years now, Twitter blew up with more conspiracy theories after photos emerged of Melania boarding Marine One with Donald. In the pics, she didn’t look like her normal self, but people have attributed it to her smiling.

The “Fake Melania” rumors continued just a few days ago when she appeared at campaign rallies with her sunglasses on.

On Election Day, Melania was seen stepping out in Florida (wearing her sunglasses) to place her vote.

First Lady Melania Trump Votes In Person, Maskless, Amid Continued Body Double Rumors

First Lady Melania Trump arrives maskless to cast her vote in person on Tuesday (November 3) at the Morton and Barbara Mandel Recreation Center in Palm Beach, Fla.

The 50-year-old FLOTUS was accompanied by secret service men as well as the county’s supervisor of elections, Wendy Sartory Link.

The First Lady contracted COVID-19 last month and many have been wondering why she wouldn’t wear a mask when arriving to cast her vote.

“It’s Election Day, so I wanted to come here to vote today for the election,” she told reporters (via the New York Times).

“Everything was perfect,” Wendy said. “She was the only voter in the room at the time.”

Rumors that the First Lady has a body double that is used for appearances have been running rampant for weeks after this photo surfaced. However, that theory is now being debunked.

Melania Trump Makes Campaign Stops After Body Double Rumors Get Debunked

If you were loving those conspiracy theories about Melania Trump having a body double that attended events in her place, we have some unfortunate news for you.

Both USA Today and BuzzFeed are debunking the theories that Melania has a body double.

USA Today reported, “Based on our research, the conspiracy theory that the White House has used a body double to sub for Melania Trump is FALSE. The White House and President Donald Trump have denied it, and the photos and videos that have been cited as proof of the theory have been anomalies. After all, no one looks the same in every photo that is taken of them.”

The #FakeMelania rumors blew up last weekend after a photo of Melania looking very different spread around the internet. Then the rumors continued with her appearance just the other day.

Pictured here: Melania was back on the campaign trail on Saturday (October 31) to make appearances in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

The 'Fake Melania' Theories Are Continuing After Melania Trump's Speech at Florida Rally (See Photos)

#FakeMelania was a trending topic last weekend after photos of Melania Trump went viral because people thought a body double was there in her place.

Now, the “Fake Melania” theories are continuing after the First Lady of the United States spoke at a Trump rally on Friday (October 30) in Tampa, Fla.

Melania, or the woman possibly playing her if conspiracy theorists are correct, was seen giving a kiss to Donald before speaking on stage in front of thousands of people in Florida.

One person tweeted, “For the record, I had Trump kissing a fake Melania at a super-spreader rally on my 2020 bingo card.”

Zach Braff said, “Guys. I’m not a conspiracy person at all!!!! But this doesn’t look like her! Am I crazy?”

Melania Trump Is 'Repulsed' By Donald Trump At Times, Omarosa Claims

Omarosa Manigault Newman is spilling details on Donald Trump‘s marriage to Melania Trump.

“It’s a very strange marriage, and I’m very cautious to comment on the dynamics of people’ marriage — you never know the inner-workings — but I’ve known this couple since they were dating,” the 46-year-old said on the British morning talk show Lorraine. “And in fact, they got married a year after The Apprentice aired.”

“What I’ve observed over the last 17 years … Sometimes they like each other and other times she’s repulsed by him,” she continued. “As we saw just on the debate last Thursday, he went to go and touch her hand and she smacked it away.” If you don’t know, Omarosa worked for Trump‘s White House in 2017 but she left the position. Omarosa actually once revealed some secret audio between her and Trump.

She also spoke about what will happen if Trump loses the election.

“I think that he will fight leaving office,” she said. “But, thank God, there are safeguards in place for a peaceful transition of power and so, as much as he may pout like a baby and throw a tantrum, there are forces that will be able to move and usher him right out of the White House and bring in new leadership, and in this case, I hope that it in fact is Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris.”

If you missed it, people think Melania has been replaced by a body double in these latest Trump appearance pics.
