President Trump on Wednesday assailed the media for what he described as “vicious” coverage of first lady Melania Trump’s weeks-long absence from the public eye following her hospitalization last month.

“The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania,” Trump tweeted. “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!”

On Monday, Melania Trump appeared alongside Trump at a White House reception honoring Gold Star families. It was closed to the press, but she tweeted photos from the event showing her seated next to the president, and a video posted to social media showed her arrival.

It was the first time the first lady had been seen publicly since May 10 — four days before she underwent what the White House said was a successful procedure to treat a benign kidney condition.
