After 24 Days Out of Sight, Melania Trump Reappears

WASHINGTON- JULY 20 White House Deputy Chief of Staff Joe Hagin waves after he returned to the White House from Crawford Texas with U.S. President George W. Bush and first lady Laura

After being out of the public eye for 24 days, which included recovery time for a kidney procedure on May 14, the First Lady made an appearance at an event for military Gold Star families on Monday night.

At a White House function for Gold Star Families (military families who have lost relatives in combat), President Trump was accompanied by a person that everyone in attendance swears was really Melania, truthfully it was, no word of a lie, conversation over.

The first lady and president hosted a similar event this same time previous year in honor of the families of those who made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve America's freedom.

"It was a privilege to welcome Gold Star Families to the White House today to recognize our Nation's fallen heroes and their families. They have lost loved ones and deserve respect and privacy", said spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham.

A campaign asking "where is Melania?" began on Twitter, with many chiming in with concerns about the mother-of-one to Barron Trump, 12.

Colbert said that the White House had recently claimed Melania had undergone surgery for a "benign kidney condition".

Questions surrounding Melania's absence grew increasingly loud in the last week, prompting the first lady to snipe at the press for inquiring about her.

It will also have some new augmented reality features, including a new file format that's being supported by Adobe called USDZ. Augmented reality apps using Apple's new AR Kit 2 software let multiple people play games or enjoy experiences simultaneously.

The First Lady's spokeswoman issued a statement last week saying "she was hospitalized for nearly a week and is now home and recovering".

In the weeks prior to her surgery, she was engaged in several high-profile events.

While Melania has been on most of her husband's foreign trips to date, she did cancel plans to join him at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland in January just days before Trump's departure, citing scheduling conflicts.

Whether health issues continue to plaque the first lady after her five-day stint at Walter Reed Medical Centre in Washington, DC, has not been disclosed to the public.

But her Monday appearance at the White House appears to have put many of those rumors to rest.

The first lady herself tweeted photographs showing her in the audience. But over the past half century, it has become the expectation that people know the basic narrative of the first lady's activities.

The President also talked about the strong economy during the event, the person inside the room said.
