Trump Just NUKED The Media Over Melania Conspiracies

President Trump is fed up with the conspiracies about his wife, First Lady Melania, and took to social media to rant about how “unfair” and “vicious” some mainstream media outlets have been regarding her absence.

The first lady underwent emergency surgery three weeks ago and was taking time to recover and worked behind the scenes. After spending several days in the hospital, she reportedly returned to work in the White House but did not make a public appearance until earlier this week.

“The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania. During her recovery from surgery they reported everything from near death, to facelift, to left the W.H. (and me) for N.Y. or Virginia, to abuse. All Fake, she is doing really well!” Trump tweeted on Wednesday morning.

“Four reporters spotted Melania in the White House last week walking merrily along to a meeting. They never reported the sighting because it would hurt the sick narrative that she was living in a different part of the world, was really ill, or whatever. Fake News is really bad!” the president added in a later tweet.

Melania responded directly to the hysteria in a tweet last week.

“I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I’m doing,” she said last Wednesday. “Rest assured, I’m here at the @WhiteHouse with my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!”

Melania’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham similarly commented that the first lady was focusing on recovering from the surgery and taking care of her own family.

“Mrs. Trump has always been a strong and independent woman who puts her family, and certainly her health, above all else, and that won’t change over a rabid press corps,” Grisham said, per Fox News. “She’s confident in what she is doing and in her role, and knows the rest is just speculation and nonsense.”

As Washington Examiner reports, Melania did not attend a public event since May 10. The absence from the public drew all sorts of speculations and conspiracies as to where she might be.

Check it out, per the Fox News report:

Mainstream media members jumped the shark and took Trump Derangement Syndrome to new heights by concocting tales of domestic abuse when trying to determine first lady Melania Trump’s whereabouts before she showed up to a White House event on Monday night.

Melania Trump was painted as “missing in action” when news broke on Sunday night that the first lady, who is fresh off an operation for a kidney condition, will not join her husband on a pair of international trips. CNN even aired a graphic of a calendar, placing question marks on each date since the first lady was “last seen” on May 10 – but CNN’s coverage turned out to be less appalling than some conspiracy theories floated on Twitter.

“A reporter for Rolling Stone even suggested the first lady’s absence was because she was ‘concealing abuse,'” Washington Examiner reports.

Here’s the tweet:

Others similarly (and wildly) speculated that domestic abuse could have played a role. Here’s another:

“Suppose President Trump punched the first lady in the White House (federal property = federal jurisdiction), then ordered the Secret Service to conceal the assault. POTUS has Article II authority over Secret Service. Is that obstruction? Under Sekulow/Dowd, apparently NO,” Atlantic senior editor David Frum tweeted.

It seems like the first lady was right, she was busy working while media outlets were busy “working overtime” to find a story which was never there.
