Colbert Theorizes About Melania Trump’s Mysterious Absence: ‘This Is Just Weird’

Yes, Melania shared photos of her appearance, but the photos were all taken from a distance and the event was closed to the press, so this is as good a look as we'll get for now. The White House said that Melania Trump had surgery for a "benign kidney condition" on May 14.

Trump even weighed in on the public interest surrounding her mysterious public hiatus, addressing the rumors using her husband's communication tool of choice: Twitter, writing: "I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing".

Questions surrounding Melania's absence grew increasingly loud in the last week, prompting the first lady to snipe at the press for inquiring about her.

The last time Mrs. Trump attended a public event was on May 10, when she joined the president at Joint Base Andrews to welcome home three Americans freed from North Korea.

Ms. Grisham, the first lady's spokeswoman, dismissed curiosity about her travel, saying that it was "pretty typical" not to travel after a medical procedure.

Melania Trump attended the G7 meeting in Italy previous year. The first lady's attendance at the reception on Monday evening ends weeks of fervent speculation as to her whereabouts. She spent five days in the hospital, but when she failed to resurface after that, people began to wonder what the hell was going on. She had not been seen publicly since undergoing a medical procedure in mid-May. "The language and syntax sounded so suspiciously like like a certain social media addict, it only served to fuel the flames", says Vanity Fair.

"It was a privilege to welcome Gold Star Families to the White House today to recognize our Nation's fallen heroes and their families", Mrs. Trump said in a statement released after the event.

While the First Lady's condition was "benign", it was serious.

Nationally: In a 7-2 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court sided with a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, while making it clear that similar cases could be decided differently.

"She's confident in what she is doing and in her role, and knows the rest is just speculation and nonsense". She and son Barron officially moved to the White House last June.

"I'm amazed Mrs Trump has been able to do it", she told AFP.
