    Following Wednesday protests, where thousands of Trump supporters violently stormed the Capitol building, netizens started to wonder what the First Lady was doing all that time.

    The First Lady of the US Melania Trump has been completely out of sight in recent days, while her husband’s presidential term comes to an end.

    Melania Trump last time appeared in public on New Year’s Eve, when she was returning to the White House after spending the Christmas holidays in Florida. The first lady has also been absent from social media: she hasn’t tweeted since January 2 and hasn’t posted on Instagram since Christmas.

    Her sudden vanishing prompted people to wonder where she disappeared to – and many of them took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

    ​Some users suggested the first lady returned to the couple’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.

    ​Another doubted if the first lady was even in the US, noting that she “seems to be conveniently MIA” [missing in action].

    ​Some wondered where the other family members are, supposing they are hiding somewhere in wake of the unrest in the US capital.

    ​One twitterian recalled her “Be best” public awareness campaign:

    ​“Her silence won’t protect her,” another twitterian wrote.

    ​Some people, though, were sure that the first lady’s account won’t remain silent for too long, referring to her husband being permanently banned from Twitter.
