On Wednesday, President Donald Trump lashed out at the news media who have been viciously reporting false stories for the past three weeks about his wife and her where-about’s.

The First Lady returned to public eye Monday night, attending a closed gathering that honored relatives of slain service members of the Gold Star Families.
About 40 families participated in the candlelight ceremony during which the names of the fallen were read aloud. The event lasted over two hours.
Several of the invitees commented on the First Lady as they left. “She looked beautiful,” said Diana Pike of Phoenix, whose son was killed in Afghanistan in 2013.
Lori Donahue of Gillette, Wyo., said she was touched by Melania Trump’s presence: “It meant a lot that this was her first appearance since her surgery.” Donahue’s son, Staff Sgt. Jeremy Vrooman, was killed in Iraq. (Video Below)
As always, Melania ended the event with an uplifting message saying “It was a privilege to welcome Gold Star Families to the White House today to recognize our Nation’s fallen heroes and their families. To all those who have lost loved ones in service to our country, our nation grieves with you. It is a solemn reminder that we, the American people, are able to live as freely as we do because of the selfless sacrifices of our men and women in uniform.”
Melania thanked the Gold Families for attending the event in a tweet as seen below:
President Trump responded to media insults about his wife saying:
“The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania. During her recovery from surgery they reported everything from near death, to facelift, to left the W.H. (and me) for N.Y. or Virginia, to abuse. All Fake, she is doing really well!”
The President tweeted a second response saying: (Video Below)
“Four reporters spotted Melania in the White House last week walking merrily along to a meeting. 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. Fake News is really bad!”
Then, the President capped off the fake news by throwing this in their face:
“Many more Republican voters showed up yesterday than the Fake News thought possible. The political pundits just don’t get what is going on out there – or they do get it but refuse to report the facts! Remember, Dems are High Tax, High Crime, easy to beat!”
Wednesday, Melania accompanied the president on a visit to the Federal Emergency Management Administration headquarters for a briefing on hurricane preparedness; where she made a second appearance since her surgery.
The media would have never spoken so poorly about the Obama family. In doing so with the Trump family, this shows extremely poor class on their part. This is exceptionally unconstitutional and biased. Let us know in the comments below how you feel about the media attacking First Lady Melania during her recovery.
