Melania To Resurface Today At Gold Star Family Event

"Well I'm not surprised", Colbert joked about the absence, "it took that Shawshank guy years to tunnel out".

Mrs. Trump recently underwent a kidney operation to treat a benign condition and has since been absent from public life. The first lady said in a written statement after last June's event that these families "are a unique and distinct category of individuals who should be cherished".

However, Grisham confirmed to CNN that Melania would attend the reception for Gold Star families, honoring their family members who died in battle.

"Could you imagine if he called her the wrong name in bed?" he quipped.

Last week, Mrs. Trump attempted to quash rumors of her activity by claiming she was still recovering at home in the White House, while also attacking the media for "working overtime" with their speculation. Colbert said. "She might hear it from down the hall".

Public interest in and news media coverage of first ladies exploded during the Obama administration, the first White House to extensively use social media to spread its brand, McBride said.

Prior to her medical incident, the first lady's popularity was on the rise, according to a recent CNN poll, and she was seemingly growing more comfortable in the spotlight, hosting her first official state dinner and announcing her formal platform initiatives.

"Honoured to pay tribute to our fallen heroes", read a tweet posted on her official Twitter account.
