It’s been 20 days since the public has laid eyes on first lady Melania Trump, or as she’s known to her husband at times, Melanie. Mrs. Trump allegedly had an embolization procedure, often a treatment for a benign tumor, on May 14th at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland — and she stayed there for nearly a week, even though the procedure would usually only require an overnight stay. So, people are just asking where the First Lady is and if she’s OK. Some people think she may have had plastic surgery, while others think something nefarious may have happened to her. And there’s even been speculation that she’s moved out of the White House.
Melania’s official account addressed that, but everyone thinks the language in it sounds just like her husband.
“I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I’m doing,” Mrs. Trump allegedly tweeted “Rest assured, I’m here at the @WhiteHouse w my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!” the “first lady” tweeted from her official account.

Mr. Trump has used that exact wording before.
“I see the media is working overtime”? Hmmmm . . . I’m trying to put my finger on who might have dictated this tweet . . . because we know Melania didn’t write it . . . pic.twitter.com/ZcWGtQihxw

No one believes it’s Melania.
I want Trump to make a phone call to press pretending to be Melania.

On May 25, while responding to questions from reporters about Mrs. Trump’s well-being, the former reality show star gestured toward a White House window and said, “She’s doing great. She’s looking at us right there.”
Reporters looked up and there was no sign of Melania in any of the windows.
The last time Melania was seen was nearly three weeks ago in the early hours of May 10, as she welcomed three American prisoners who had been released from North Korea.
I hope Mr. Trump didn’t swap her for the prisoners.
