When the liberal media began circulating shameless rumors that First Lady Melania Trump was being “abused” by the president, she took it upon herself to send them a subtle message at her first public appearance since her surgery.
No matter what President Donald Trump says or does, the left is compelled by their unfettered hatred to condemn and oppose it at all costs. However, the Commander-in-Chief isn’t their only target. According to liberals, the first family is fair game even when they’re trying to regain their health and strength after a necessary surgical procedure.
In mid-May, First Lady Melania Trump underwent kidney surgery, prompting an understandable absence from humanitarian and press-related events. Of course, while common sense would suggest that Melania simply needed a few weeks to recuperate from the invasive surgical procedure, the left-leaning mainstream media once again brazenly stooped to an unfathomable low.
As the first lady recovered, progressive journalists seized the opportunity to launch a slanderous attack while Melania was unable to defend herself. Outrageously, liberal propaganda magazine Rolling Stone’s Jamil Smith fabricated what can only be described as a delusional conspiracy theory, suggesting that Melania’s “disappearance” was due to her attempt at “concealing abuse” by President Donald Trump.
I wish that I didn’t suspect that the prolonged, poorly explained public absence of Melania Trump could be about concealing abuse. I wish that it was a ludicrous prospect. I wish that the @POTUS wasn’t a man with a history of abusing women, including those to whom he is married.

Although Smith’s inane rumor was an obvious pernicious attempt to attack the president, the left-wing media joined the anti-Trump conspiracy until Melania made her first post-surgery public appearance to shut down their discreditable tabloid gossip in a way that only the classy first lady can.
While co-hosting a reception honoring Gold Star families with her husband at the White House on June 4, Melania Trump showed off her arms in a sleeveless black dress, putting the left’s rumors to rest that she’s hiding bruises as a victim of President Donald Trump’s domestic violence, Biz Pac Review pointed out. Melania once again looked flawless in the demure outfit, silently squashing liberal gossip that she had stayed out of the public eye as a result of “concealing abuse.”

Verifying the death of credible journalism, the liberal media propagated incredible rumors that Melania had taken an abnormal leave of absence, purporting that she was last seen on May 10. However, even this claim was disproven, as CNBC correspondent Eamon Javers confirmed that he had spotted the first lady at the White House on May 29.
Hey @BrianStelter — @CNBC’s Washington correspondent @EamonJavers — who I would call a Reliable Source — says he saw @FLOTUS in the West Wing on May 29th, yet the graphic you shared claims that she was last seen on May 10th. You are sharing Fake News right now. Delete your Tweet. pic.twitter.com/ZrStsbitDe

The first lady’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, commented on the audacious speculation surrounding Melania Trump’s disappearance, unsurprisingly laughing off the rumors, according to Politico.
“Sadly, we deal with conspiracy theories all the time, so this is nothing new, just more silly nonsense,” Grisham said. “She is doing great. I wouldn’t characterize it as a long absence. She was hospitalized for almost a week and is now home and recovering.”
Apparently, hair-brained conspiracy theories are what passes for journalism these days. Forget about reliable, verified sources or credible leads. The wackiest, most sensationalized possibilities are tenable enough to serve to the American people. Simply spew a conspicuous, contrived rumor befitting high school locker room gossip and you undoubtedly have 2 weeks worth of media coverage.
Melania Trump is perhaps the most private first lady in recent American history. Although the media are chomping at the bit to obtain every last detail of her life, she allows her husband to lead the nation as he was elected to do, standing in support of his efforts. Once again she proves the political left to be nothing more than jealous, hateful shills who still haven’t a clue as to why they continue losing the support and attention of the American people.
