  • Melania Trump's 3-Week Absence From Public Eye Stirs Up Theories on Her Whereabouts

Reporters asked President Trump about the whereabouts of Melania on Friday before boarding the helicopter to Camp David according to a report from The Independent.

After more than three weeks out of the public eye, the first lady strolled into a White House event Monday for military families and swept away the wild speculation that she was incapacitated or had otherwise vanished. "Rest assured, I'm here at the @WhiteHouse w my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!"

While there are certainly bigger issues in the world right now (Samantha Bee calling Ivanka Trump a dirty word, the Drake-Pusha T beef, etc.) the disappearance of Melania Trump has captured the public's overactive imagination.

Spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham confirmed to The Hill and CNN on Sunday that Trump would be joining her husband at the private event honoring families of USA military members killed in battle. But unlike a year ago, she will not be accompanying President Trump to the G7 summit, even though there's a lot less traveling involved, the Hill reports.

She had a top secret nip and tuck and will come back looking very ... refreshed. The most recent, sent on 30 May, addressed the mounting interest in her absence - but the unusual style of the message inflamed rather than cooled the speculation.

The New York Post pointed out that she also did not travel with the president to Tennessee or Texas, his other destinations since her surgery. A spokesperson for the First Lady indicated that she would stay in the hospital through the end of the week.

When recently asked about his wife's recovery, Trump said: "She's doing great". She remained at Walter Reed Medical Center until May 19.

"[Melania Trump was] involved in several internal meetings with staff all last week" and is "planning events such as the congressional picnic and 4 of July", Grisham told Fox News.
