First Lady Melania Trump has been off the radar for the past few weeks since her operation at Walter Reed. During her recovery time, she has not appeared at events and has taken a break from social media. While this is completely normal and expected for someone who just underwent major surgery, the mainstream media has had a field day coming up with conspiracy theories as to what Melania has been up to.
The narratives being spread by the left include Melania being in cahoots with Obama, taking sides with Mueller in the witch-hunt, moving back to New York with Barron, and many more. Each one crazier than the next.
Stephanie Grisham, the First Lady’s spokesperson, pointed out the absurdities in these narratives earlier this week:
“Sadly, we deal with conspiracy theories all the time, so this is nothing new, just more silly nonsense. [Melania] is doing great. I wouldn’t characterize it as a long absence. She was hospitalized for almost a week and is now home and recovering.”
On Wednesday, after hearing about the theories being spread, Melania came out to slam the media for the lies they’ve spread.
I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I’m doing. Rest assured, I’m here at the @WhiteHouse w my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!

Why can the media not leave Melania alone? They continue to attack her and the Trump family relentlessly. Where is their compassion? This woman just underwent surgery!
