Trump Fires Back At Fake News Media in Defense of Melania

President Trump brought down the hammer Wednesday on the “vicious” media coverage of Melania Trump, following days of wild conspiracy theories on the first lady’s whereabouts.

“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.

Journalists wondered why the first lady was largely out of the public eye, but the theories took a dark turn in recent days. Trump’s reference to “abuse” comes after Rolling Stone senior writer Jamil Smith suggested on Twitter that the first lady was absent from the public eye due to domestic violence.

A media frenzy had erupted in recent days over the first lady, with reports suggesting she was “missing in action” following an announcement that she would not join the president at the looming G7 summit in Quebec and that there are “no plans” for her to travel to Singapore for the president’s summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.
