FLOTUS Appearance Dampers Media Speculation
First lady Melania Trump made her first public appearance in nearly a month on Wednesday, tamping down rumors about her noticeable absence from the public eye after she underwent a kidney procedure.
The first lady sat next to President Donald Trump at the headquarters of the Federal Emergency Management Agency for a 2018 hurricane season briefing with the vice president and several cabinet officials also in attendance.
"She's doing great," Trump said, next to a smiling Melania Trump. "She went through a little rough patch but she's doing great."
He added, "We're very proud of her, she's done a fantastic job as first lady."
The appearance was her first in public since May 10, four days before she underwent a procedure for what her office called a "benign kidney condition."
The first lady did not make any remarks at Wednesday's meeting.
