    US President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to denounce some of the most bizarre speculations and conspiracy theories circulating in media and social media platforms over his wife Melania’s three-week absence from the public eye.

    Donald Trump has defended the first lady, who has been recovering from a kidney surgery, on his Twitter account, denouncing the “Fake News Media” that has been treating her “unfairly.”

    As Melania made her first public appearance at a Gold Star event in the White House, many social media users wondered if it was the real first lady that attended the ceremony, or her body double.

    While many users claimed that there were no videos or pictures of Melania from the reception, which was closed to the media, a reporter from the Daily Caller, Jena Greene, whose father was killed in the Iraq war, attended the ceremony as a relative and tweeted a video of the Trumps entering the hall.

    Later, FLOTUS herself tweeted several snaps from the event:

    Earlier at the Gold Star event, President Trump reportedly joked about the first lady staying out of the spotlight after the surgery, mimicking the media’s favorite question, “Where’s Melania?” He also mocked netizens’ speculations over the couple’s divorce, asking rhetorically “Did she leave him?” before pointing at his wife, sitting in the front row.
