Stephen Colbert Mocks the Melania Trump 'Disappearance'

  • Melania Trump and CNN's Brian Stelter

Beneath the graphic, the newsletter specifically stated that she is expected to attend an event on Monday to honor Gold Star families.

"Suppose President Trump punched the First Lady in the White House (federal property = federal jurisdiction), then ordered the Secret Service to hide the assault".

News also broke Sunday night that the first lady will not join her husband at the G7 summit in Quebec later this week, and there are "no plans" for her to travel to Singapore to meet with North Korea's leader later this month.

She had not been seen in public since undergoing kidney surgery on 10 May.

"They say she is perfectly fine and I certainly hope that's true", Colbert continued.

"It was a privilege to welcome Gold Star Families to the White House today to recognize our Nation's fallen heroes and their families", Mrs. Trump said in a statement released after the event. "She's confident in what she is doing and in her role, and knows the rest is just speculation and nonsense". Twitter was abuzz with theories from political observers, both on the left and the right, with a public anxious to see their first lady.

Facebook is shutting down trending topics feature
Another feature, called " Today In ", shows people breaking news in their area from local publishers, officials and organizations. In 2016, Gizmodo reported that Facebook's contract workers often chose not to link to news with a conservative slant.

Grisham said the Gold Star families' event is important to Mrs. Trump and has been on her calendar for some time.

However, Trump's absence from public view would extend for several more days.

Her absence has sparked all kinds of wild speculation, but the first lady has shown no interest in making an appearance just to knock down rumors.

"Mrs. Trump is very strong and independent", Grisham said.

The White House announced May 14 that she had been hospitalized to treat a kidney condition described as benign.
