Conspiracy Theorists Argue Melania Trump Missing
WASHINGTON — May 30, 2018
Melania Trump's last public appearance was then President Donald Trump welcomed home three American hostages from North Korea to Joint Base Andrews. It was two weeks ago, May 10.
According to her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham, four days later, Trump was checked in to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for “an embolization procedure to treat a benign kidney condition.”
“It was successful, and there were no complications,” said Grisham.
Now many people are afraid and have said claimed it's still a conspiracy theory. “Is the first lady OK," asked one Twitter user. " Where is she? Why the long disappearance from public view?”
According to Stephanie Grisham, Melania Trump is good; it's the internet that's overreacting.
“Sadly, we hear a lot of conspiracy theories all the time — so there is nothing new, just more silly nonsense,” said Grisham, brushing the off rumors.
She added such a disappearance from the public eye isn't that unusual.
“I wouldn't characterize this as a long absence. She was hospitalized for almost a week and is now home and recovering. She has had several meetings internally with staff and will continue to do so this week.”
Melania Trump may appear publicly over the next few days. She will now be occupied figuring out details for the upcoming annual Congressional Picnic in June and July 4th events.
According to results of a CNN poll conducted the last week the first lady was up 10 points to 57% in her “favorability rating,” making her the most liked member of the Trump administration. During her 11-minute speech, she underlined her commitment to spreading a message of social media kindness.
