Melania Trump dismisses conspiracy theories, says she's 'feeling great'

Melania Trump dismisses conspiracy theories, says she's 'feeling great'

The first lady hasn't made a public appearance since undergoing a medical procedure on May 14 for what's been labeled a benign kidney condition.

Melania's husband has done little to clarify her situation, earlier this month bizarrely pointing to an empty window in the East Wing when asked where she was.

The first lady tweeted on Wednesday about the media "working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing. Rest assured, I'm here at the White House with my family, feeling great, and working hard on behalf of children and the American people!"

Embolisation is most frequently used to cut off the flow of blood to a tumour or growth. But her office has dismissed these theories, saying she's back at work and has been involved in internal meetings this week.

They say she feels people are being nosey, rather than genuinely concerned about her, and that she has no desire to reveal any information as a result.

Still, there is an air of mystery.

President Donald Trump arrives with Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, left, and chief of staff John Kelly, for the White House Sports and Fitness Day on the South Lawn of the White House, Wednesday, May 30, 2018, in Washington.

After expressing her gratitude to Trump for securing her son's release, Holt's mother Laurie also thanked the Venezuelan leader. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, while welcoming Holt's release, stressed that "U.S. policy toward Venezuela remains unchanged".

Still, it looks like a lot of Twitter users are just refusing to believe she is alright.

There are few other clues about her movements. She joined the president to host the Japanese prime minister for talks at the Trumps' estate in Florida.

"She was hospitalised for nearly a week and is now home and recovering".

The fact that the first lady has barely been seen throughout May has been a hot topic of conversation on social media.

There are darker suspicions about the First Lady's absence, although, it's worth noting that according to one writer, Amanda Fortini, who had a similar kidney procedure around the same time as Melania, "It takes more than 18 days to recover".

The first lady had recently launched her initiative to teach kindness to children. And some chalked up her absence as another example of her private tendencies. Trump wrote on Thursday, rehashing his baseless claim that former President Barack Obama implanted a "spy" in his campaign. "We toured the handsome and historic Decatur House. and enjoyed a lovely lunch".
