Unhinged leftists suffering from Trump derangement syndrome are continuing to suggest that Melania Trump is missing, has separated the President, or has even been killed off by Trump himself in a bizarre display of conspiracizing.
Following obsessive and inaccurate speculation regarding the whereabouts of Melania by CNN, leftists are continuing to run wild with the theories.
Melania appeared last night at a reception for Gold Star families, which was closed to the press.

Nevertheless, footage of the first lady with the President was obtained and posted online:

Reports confirmed that Trump even referenced the conspiracy theories, noting that Melania was well and sat in the front row, and confirming that she hadn’t left him.
NEW: @POTUS briefly mentioned @FLOTUS's recent surgery at today's Gold Star family reception saying "she had a little problem" a few weeks ago but "wouldn't miss" the event "for anything, per my gold star colleague @JenaMGreene in the room

The unhinged leftists spewing the conspiracy theories were not convinced, however.
Are you seriously offering that as proof?

Gold Star reception was closed to the press but somehow, just somehow, Tucker Carlson's Daily Caller had someone there who has posted a video allegedly from the event in which you can see… not much, conveniently. https://t.co/5a1ibTAftQ

Where did you obtain this footage, and what evidence is there that this is from today's event?

Some even suggested that the person in the footage is a body double for Melania:
Body double? Even if it is her, she has not laid the rest questions about her disappearance, and whether or not she has separated from @realDonaldTrump. I think she is leaving him, but she will stick it out until he resigns, is impeached, or good forbid, the end of his term. https://t.co/bvRdL3Ou1c

But do we REALLY *see* her? https://t.co/j3S5PfH5BR

In a segment on The Late Show, Stephen Colbert weighed in on the matter, fueling the conspiracy theories.
“Where the hell is Melania?!?” Colbert teased before the first commercial break, then later launching into a skit about Melania being missing.

While Colbert’s coverage can be passed off as lighthearted, the same cannot be said of CNN’s, which is prompting other media outlets into indulging in the same fantasies:
Melania Trump's unusual 25-day absence from public view following surgery for a "benign" kidney condition is raising questions https://t.co/E4WLk3gdrZ

So you guys are conspiracy theorists too? Will add you to the list! https://t.co/Dcj8X2vN32

We are in the "kidney surgery is nbd" phase of conspiracy theorizing. https://t.co/4DFvRQEDgH

Suddenly every journalist in America is an expert at how long it normally takes to recover from kidney surgery. Imagine that https://t.co/q7RiR6xkOZ

Have kidney surgery of any kind and see how long it takes you to get back to 100%, assholes. https://t.co/LbVFyvyHCW

Journalistic standards have slipped so far that now even AFP are deploying clickbait. https://t.co/xvzPfsJvfB

Journalism is absolutely riveted over the absence of a recovering surgery patient from the limelight. https://t.co/yWOaLMckFa

In a piece titled ‘Melania Trump and the Fantasies of the Left’, Alex Wagner of The Atlantic notes “Though the curiosity may be genuine, the theorizing also reflects Melania’s role as a magnet for the fever dreams of tumult and chaos among Trump’s opponents.”
The Double standard has also not gone unnoticed:
Melania recovers from a scheduled surgery: conspiracy
Hillary collapses in public and then lies about it: [crickets] https://t.co/khwLCynXAM

So it's okay to question Melania's health, but not Hillary's? Again, I'm just trying to keep up with the rules. https://t.co/s2H9PJSvQO
