Where is Melania Trump? Mystery as public absence extends to 22 days

Where is Melania

Donald Trump was scheduled to head to Maryland on Friday afternoon, but officials said his wife would not be boarding the presidential helicopter with him.

A year ago Melania joined her husband in Taormina, Italy, for a G7 meeting where she famously wore a $51,000 Dolce & Gabbana jacket. She checked into Walter Reed Medical Center for treatment of what the White House called a benign kidney condition May 14 and didn't leave until May 19.

While there are certainly bigger issues in the world right now (Samantha Bee calling Ivanka Trump a dirty word, the Drake-Pusha T beef, etc.) the disappearance of Melania Trump has captured the public's overactive imagination. This has caused some consternation regarding her wellbeing - something that the White House's attempts to address haven't really, well... addressed.

"I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I am doing". The White House had faced growing questions and speculation that it wasn't being forthcoming about the state of her health or of her well-being.

OK, but that still does't explain why she can't go outside.

It is a phrase she has never used on social media, but one Mr Trump has used in at least eight of his tweets.




The first lady has not been seen publicly for 24 days.

Melania's absence led to many people making widespread rumours and conspiracy theories. "She's holed up with the Obamas, working on a tell-all book about her husband - unless she had a secret nip and tuck, in which case she's just healing".

However, CNN also reported that the reception is closed to the press so there will be no account of the event or of her attendance, other than what the White House chooses to say about it.

As recently as Friday, Grisham told CNN, "she is fine, she's doing great".

The event on Monday could be the only time that Melania Trump is seen for some time.
