Trump attacks 'vicious and unfair' Melania rumours: 'All fake!'

Mrs. Trump's stay in the hospital was also shrouded in secrecy.

She and the president recently attended an event for Gold Star families, a memorial created to honor and "pay tribute to our fallen heroes".

President Trump on Wednesday lashed out at the news media, whom he accused of falsely reporting "vicious" stories about his wife during a more than three-week stretch in which first lady Melania Trump did not hold or attend any official events.

Joe Scarborough, Brzezinski's co-host and fiancé, was quick to note the hypocrisy of Trump's complaint.

Over the course of the first lady's recovery, the White House released little information about the status of her health or where she was beyond telling reporters she was "doing well".

"Mrs. Trump is at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and will likely remain there for the duration of the week", Grisham's statement continued.

In the hours following her procedure, aides wore scrubs around her but said that the procedure had been successful and without complications. But contrary to the president's claim, the mainstream media did not embrace suggestions that she had had a facelift, been abused or was near death. But her silence for nearly one month did not help to silence rumors and conspiracy theories from brewing online.

Define "rough patch." Melania's spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, previously told reporters that Melania was merely working on causes close to her, like her Be Best campaign, behind the scenes at the White House.

"They never reported the sighting because it would hurt the sick narrative that she was living in a different part of the world, was really ill, or whatever", Trump wrote.

First lady Melania Trump speaks on her initiatives during an event in the Rose Garden of the White House last month.

She skipped Trump's "Celebration For America" event on the South Lawn on Tuesday and is scheduled to make her first appearance before the press since her hospitalization at a hurricane season briefing at FEMA headquarters in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday afternoon. "All Fake, she is doing really well!"

The president even cracked a joke about the gossip surrounding the first lady's prolonged period away from the public eye with the crowd.

"Isn't that right honey?" the president said.
