While First Lady Melania Trump has been recovering from her surgery last month, the media has been publishing a host of bizarre reports on why she hasn’t been seen in public in so long.

This week, Rolling Stone writer Jamil Smith created outrage by tweeting a suggestion that the First Lady might be in hiding to “conceal abuse,” implying that the president Trump was abusive toward her.

President Trump slammed the fake news media, tweeting in a two-part statement:

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!

…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!

Below is Smith’s Twitter post that stirred up much of the outrage:
