On Sunday, the first lady's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, confirmed that Mrs Trump would not be accompanying her husband to the G7 summit in Canada this week or the scheduled landmark North Korea nuclear summit in Singapore on 12 June. However, the first lady's absence made her appearance all the more newsworthy.

The White House had said gave no official reason for Melania Trump not going on this trip.

Zeleny said Trump laughed at the speculation on the first lady, who was sitting in the front row at the event, saying "Did she leave him?"

A spokesperson for Melania Trump told Yahoo's Hunter Walker that the first lady would also be skipping the event.

"They say she is perfectly fine and I certainly hope that's true", Colbert continued.




The liberal network's "Reliable Sources" newsletter led with a giant graphic of a calendar, placing question marks on each date since Mrs. Trump was "last seen" on May 10. The riff was playful, but a bit awkward considering the event was to honor Gold Star families, who have lost loved ones at war.

Mrs. Trump recently underwent a kidney operation to treat a benign condition and has since been absent from public life. "She's confident in what she is doing and in her role, and knows the rest is just speculation and nonsense".

She has stayed out of public view since returning home on May 19.

The first lady remained hospitalized for five nights following the procedure, which was successful and without complication, according to a statement issued by Grisham.

Colbert later joked that the White House had released an official photo of her attending Monday night's event before cutting to, well, the picture the show posted below.
