Melania Trump makes first public appearance in nearly a month

Earlier Wednesday, hours before the scheduled meeting, Trump ripped the “unfair” and “vicious” media “narrative” surrounding Mrs. Trump’s prolonged public absence.

“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,” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning, ahead of the first lady’s expected re-emergence.

In a second tweet, Trump claimed that “four reporters spotted Melania in the White House last week walking merrily along to a meeting” and “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.”

But, in fact, reporters did note Melania Trump’s movement within the White House last week. Eamon Javers, of CNBC, tweeted on May 30 about the first lady walking with her aides.

Not that this will deter the conspiracy theorists, but I saw the First Lady walking with her aides in the West Wing yesterday afternoon. https://t.co/N9xadq7P0d
