Melania Trump appears for 1st time in 3 weeks

She is expected to appear at a reception Monday for Gold Star families; the event is closed to the media.

This did little to quell the conspiracy theories; indeed it only fueled the idea that the first lady had died or disappeared and someone else was writing her tweets for her.

In pictures posted on her official Twitter account, she was seen sitting next to President Donald Trump at a private reception for families of U.S. soldiers killed in action.

"It's unbelievable she's been able to pull it off given the scrutiny that first ladies are under in our times", Ms. Jellison, the historian, said. "She just looked so lovely".

A Gold Star daughter at last night's dinner did tweet a video of the president and first lady walking into the room and said the first lady took time to shake hands with family members at the event honoring fallen service members.

Nearly a week later, Melania's official Twitter account sent a somewhat suspicious tweet that did absolutely nothing to quell rumours that all was not well at the White House.

Colbert said that the White House had recently claimed Melania had undergone surgery for a "benign kidney condition".

Her prolonged absence set off a flurry of controversy in the media. She spent almost a week in the hospital recovering.

Nancy Reagan spent several weeks out of public view after a mastectomy, but continued to meet with staff and do other work behind the scenes.


"We're used to our first ladies being out and about", Colbert added later.

Do you know where your First Lady is?

Mrs Trump followed up the outing by shared photos of the "celebration" with her 10.5 million Twitter followers.

And a fifth cheeky viewer even compared her to Kim Kardashian, writing: "That looked like Kim Kardashian".

Many people's reactions to the "Melania is missing" hysteria have rightfully pointed out that perhaps the first lady needed a longer convalescent period than advertised, or any number of complications could have arisen from the procedure that the White House does not feel it appropriate to talk about.

According to CNN, President Trump joked about his wife's prolonged absence during the Gold Star reception. She will not accompany her husband to the Group of Seven summit in Canada, nor to planned North Korea nuclear talks in Singapore.

In recent days, communications director Stephanie Grisham has said the first lady is "doing really well", but had declined to provide details about her condition.

Her first clue that she would be a different first lady came when she made a decision to continue living at Trump Tower after her husband took office in January 2017, citing a desire to maintain stability for her son's schooling.
