Where is Melania Trump

Is Melania learning to shoot back on Twitter like her husband the current president Donald Trump?

In her absence, others have stepped in to perform the duties that traditionally fall to the president's spouse.

I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing.

On Tuesday, yet another rumor on Melania Trump's supposed disappearance had popped up, as an unnamed senior White House official told Politico that the president's people "are hiding something" regarding the first lady's whereabouts.

Still, conspiracy theorists abound.

"Once again we find ourselves consumed with a ridiculous non-story when we could be talking about the work the first lady is doing on behalf of children", Grisham said in an email.

Melania's admission to hospital came as a surprise, as there had been no public indication that she was unwell.

Trump is just fine, it's the internet who's overreacting, according to Grisham.

One particularly popular conspiracy theory started by Politico alleged that she left Washington D.C. and went to NY.

Perhaps the concern or speculation also masks some frustration.




The first lady has tweeted a few times in the past two weeks, including a thank-you to the hospital staff and a recognition of Medal of Honor recipient Britt Slabinski, a Navy SEAL who oversaw a daring rescue mission in Afghanistan.

Later in the afternoon, the president will meet with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and then deliver remarks while participating in the White House Sports and Fitness Day.

The White House has released nearly no information about the first lady following her surgery, and her team has not explained the reason for her extended five-day hospital stay for a procedure that usually only requires one day.

On Twitter, some suggested her husband had actually written the tweet that appeared on her account on Wednesday.

She spoke out after wild - and totally unsubstantiated - internet rumors claimed that she had dumped Donald Trump and moved back to NY, reports Politico.

Still, suspicion was stirred on social media.

In short, she was on a roll.

The first lady's office has not said when her next public event will be. Reporters turned to look at the spot he indicated, but there was no sign of the first lady. "She has always been independent".

It's safe to say that an image of Melania holding today's newspaper as proof that she still exists would comfort the "children & American people" she's "working" for. I wouldn't characterize it as a long absence.
