Former First Lady Melania Trump’s signature is in focus again.

Her written statement claiming that she was “unaware” of the Jan. 6, 2021 riot as it was taking place has come under scrutiny.

The statement that was issued on Thursday had her signature, and social media users zeroed in on it, according to Yahoo! They noted that it bears an uncanny resemblance to that of her husband, Donald Trump.

Writer and radio host Bob Cesca zoomed-in an image of the signature, and tweeted, “I mean, what the h***?” He noted that Melania's "signature looks exactly like Donald’s. You don’t think that’s weird?” Another Twitter user said that it’s so weird how the former President and his wife have "such a similar ‘spiky’ signature." The user added, “Who could have foreseen that two human beings who ended up married would have identical handwriting…”

Another Twitter user tagged the Justice Department and the Jan. 6 committee’s official accounts in a tweet. In the tweet, the person asked is "forging someone’s signature legal? This isn’t Melania’s signature. It’s Donald’s."

A 2018 article in which Sheila Kurtz, a handwriting expert, remarked that the similarities between the two signatures were “amazing," was also cited by many Twitter users. At the time, Kurtz said, “This is stylized." She noted of Melania’s sign-off on a letter to actress Pamela Anderson. The expert added that it is uncommon for spouse’s signatures to mimic each others’. She noted that maybe the couple brought "someone in to show her how to do it or (it’s) a stamp, but it is definitely stylized.”

Amateur handwriting analysts have been talking about the signatures for long. Back in November 2018, Daily Wire Senior Editor Ashe Short shared a photo of a White House greeting card. The journalist noted that Melania’s signature "looks a lot like Donald’s.”

Later, Nieman Lab founder Joshua Benton pointed out just how close the similarity was in a holiday card that was supposedly signed by Trump and Melania.

And now, people are again reacting to the Former First Lady’s signature, according to The Wrap. It all started with her new written statement in which she said that on the day of the insurrection, she was "fulfilling one of my duties as First Lady of the United States of America." She shared that accordingly, she was "unaware of what was simultaneously transpiring at the US Capitol Building." She noted that as with all First Ladies of the U.S. who preceded her, it was her "obligation to record the contents of the White House’s historic rooms, including taking archival photographs of all the renovations."
