First Lady Melania Trump has been home from the hospital for exactly a week now, but it’s been a whopping 15 days since she’s been seen publicly. After spending five days in the hospital after a sudden kidney surgery, Americans assumed she was doing better and ready to get back to work in White House role. So it came as a shock when there’s continually been no sight or sound from her.
Now, President Trump has just released an unexpected statement about his wife who everyone is wondering about and concerned about her condition.
The last time the country was graced with our first lady’s presence was on May 10, when she welcomed home three American hostages from North Korea at Joint Base Andrews, with the president, according to the Washington Post. Just four days later, she was rushed to Walter Reed to undergo what’s typically an outpatient kidney procedure but stayed under the hospital’s care for almost a week.
Although she returned to the White House on May 19, as of the 26th, she hasn’t been seen. Trump had assured the country that her surgery was successful and she’s doing well. He was even quoted saying she’s “right there,” and pointed to a window in the White House when asked by prodding reporters why she’s so-called “missing” and how she’s recovering. She’s certainly allowed privacy while she’s recuperating, even if her detractors don’t want to accept that and start conspiracies about her instead.
Since speculations are running amok, President Trump has had enough and is addressing the concerns about his wife.
Independent Journal Review reports:
“She’s doing great,” the president told reporters before climbing aboard Marine One and heading to the Naval Academy commencement ceremony on Friday. “She’s looking at us right there.”
According to the Washington Post, President Trump then pointed to a window in the White House, but reporters who turned to look failed to catch a glimpse of the first lady.
A spokesperson from the first lady’s office addressed the public about her plan to resume her regular scheduled. IJR continued:
This week, the first lady’s office did not indicate when she’s expected to resume public events but did reveal she has been holding meetings with her staff in the meantime.
“We’ve had several internal staff meetings in the past week around a variety of topics, including her initiatives,” her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told the Post in an email.
Melania’s longtime friend Paolo Zampolli added that he has communicated with her via text message since her release from the hospital and that she “seems to be recovering well.”
Melania isn’t just the first lady, she’s also a mother to a young son who, like many children in the country, is finishing up his school year. The last week or two can be busy and Melania is a mother who has regularly been described as “very hands on.” That’s what makes her even more incredible as a person and example to others.
It’s a reasonable assumption at this point that she’s been busy with their son Barron, at least as a possible purpose for her absence from the public. Considering the immense amount of unwanted and unwarranted negative attacks on the youngest Trump son, it’s also understandable that the first family would want to keep his name out of addressing concerns of where Melania is, and attention off this child.
Since a statement hasn’t been made on where Melania has been, it’s only speculation. However, logical conclusions are better than conspiracy theories that liberals love to create to make this family and the Trump’s marriage look bad.
