Will the real Melania Trump please stand up?
The first lady returned to Twitter in an effort to quiet those conspiracy rumors about where she’s been. Has she moved back to New York City? Is she physically OK after kidney surgery? Melania hasn’t been seen in public for nearly three weeks, with outlets such as CNN, ABC News, and Vogue running stories about her 20-day absence.
Melania attempted to quash whispers about her whereabouts on Wednesday with the following tweet but only managed to make things worse.
I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I’m doing. Rest assured, I’m here at the @WhiteHouse w my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!

Why? Because nobody believes she wrote it.
Who is this? where’s Melania? https://t.co/0B3KSQxxQT

Can they just release a picture of Melania holding up a copy of today’s newspaper so we know she’s okay?

I want Trump to make a phone call to press pretending to be Melania.

We’re very close to Trump Mrs. Doubtfire-ing as Melania.

Melania’s last public appearance was on May 10, when she joined President Trump to welcome home the three Americans released from North Korea. Four days later, the White House announced that she underwent kidney surgery. FLOTUS has tweeted a few times since, thanking doctors and offering her condolences after the Santa Fe school shooting.
Perhaps instead of a tweet, she could provide some photographic evidence of her well-being? Nothing like a selfie with Kim Kardashian to prove you’re fine and dandy. Mrs. West is meeting President Trump today to discuss prison reform.
