Melania Trump to attend White House reception for Gold Star families

A person or possibly a highly-sophisticated robot that White House officials assure is Melania Trump has made her/their/its first public appearance in just over 24 days, putting all speculation on the First Lady's status to bed no further questions please stop asking about it.

On Sunday, her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham confirmed that Melania will not accompany the president to the G7 summit in Canada, nor to planned North Korea nuclear talks in Singapore.

"She's doing great. She's looking at us right there", the president told reporters, gesturing toward a window in the White House residence.

"It's awesome she's been able to pull it off given the scrutiny that first ladies are under in our times", Ms. Jellison, the historian, said. Accompanying the text were photos of the reception, including one of her sitting next to the president.

Melania Trump will be skipping out on another public event as her absence from the public eye approaches one month.

On Monday, Donald Trump hosted an event for Gold Star families where Melania was in attendance, The Hill reported.

"To all those who have lost loved ones in service to our country, our nation grieves with you", her statement said.

Lori Donahue of Gillette, Wyo., said she was touched by Melania Trump's presence: "It meant a lot that this was her first since her surgery".

On May 30, a White House reporter for CNBC, Eamon Javers, tweeted that he saw the first lady walking with her aides in the West Wing last Tuesday afternoon.




And the news that the First Lady is skipping Trump's freaky "AMERICA IS THE BEST" ceremony on Tuesday (in lieu of hosting the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles) surely will fuel more of the conspiracy fire. She has been meeting with staff and working on upcoming projects, according to Grisham.

Jokes, rumors and conspiracy theories had abounded in the media and online about the first lady's possible whereabouts.

Ms Grisham said the Gold Star families' event is important to Mrs Trump and has been on her calendar for some time.

Melania Trump will join President Donald Trump for a visit to Federal Emergency Management Agency Headquarters in Washington for a briefing to discuss preparedness ahead of the 2018 hurricane season, which officially began on June 1.

However, Trump's absence from public view would extend for several more days. The approach of this enigmatic first lady, who has stuck to a resolutely low profile and opted to ignore some of the conventions of her predecessors, is likely to continue.

Her absence has sparked all kinds of wild speculation but the first lady has shown no interest in making an appearance just to knock down rumours.

"Nobody has heard from Melania over these past few weeks, and her cell phone has been switched off", said a source.

Last weekend I wrote that contrary to the silly speculation on social media, the First Lady isn't missing.
