First lady to attend Trump's hurricane briefing Wednesday

First lady to attend Trump's hurricane briefing Wednesday

US First Lady Melania Trump will not accompany the president to the Group of Seven summit in Canada, nor to planned North Korea nuclear talks in Singapore, her spokeswoman said Sunday.

It's been nearly a month since Melania Trump has been seen in public and weeks since she reportedly underwent surgery for what was described as a "benign kidney condition".

The first lady was joining the president at a White House reception Monday evening for Gold Star families.

You can put away your conspiracy theories, Internet: Melania Trump is okay.

To be clear, @FLOTUS was in attendance at the event, sitting in the front row as @realDonaldTrump gave remarks.

Crocodile 'jumps out of a lake' and kills a pastor in Ethiopia
According to the Telegraph , lake and riverside baptisms are common in many African countries, the risks notwithstanding. It is likely that the crocodile that killed Docho was a Nile crocodile, the Independent reported .

"Nobody has heard from Melania over these past few weeks, and her cell phone has been switched off", said a source.

There have been growing rumors about Melania's absence and the reason behind it.

The first lady downplayed rumors about her disappearance last week, admonishing the media for "working overtime" to explain her absence.

The First Lady's lack of recent viewings, prior to Monday's event, has created a storm of "where is she?" memes on the internet and speculation on her whereabouts.

Grisham said earlier that the first lady has been meeting with staff and working on projects.

The president literally pointed at a window, indicating the presence of the first lady, but ... she wasn't there. ABC News reported that she would not be accompanying her husband on a series of upcoming global summits, events that the first lady would normally attend. Her last appearance in an official capacity was on May 10, welcoming back three Americans imprisoned by North Korea. The reception is not open to the press, the White House added.

CNN described the joke as "playful, but a bit awkward" given that the event was to honor military families who'd lost relatives at war.

The first lady has "no plans" to attend a "Celebration of America" event President Trump is hosting at the White House on Tuesday in lieu of an event that was originally meant to celebrate the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. "You go in, you have it done, you lie in bed for a while to keep the blood vessel from bleeding and then you go home".

"She's doing great - just has other meetings", Grisham said when asked whether the first lady might attend Tuesday's event. "For all we know, maybe she does understand what the expectations are but just chooses not to play that game".
