She underwent surgery at Walter Reed hospital on May 14 for what aides called a "benign" kidney condition and was released on May 19.
She has since attended one closed-door White House event and is expected to appear in public later Wednesday, appearing at an event at the Federal Emergency Management Agency Headquarters with her husband.
We will proudly be playing the National Anthem and other wonderful music celebrating our Country today at 3 P.M., The White House, with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus. Speculation about her long absence includes possible tensions in the Trump marriage or a medical issue.
Trump's critics denounced his comments as a personal attack on members of the media and revived criticism of the way in which the president describes his female detractors like former Fox News and current NBC host Megyn Kelly, who he once said had "blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever".
The FLOTUS has gone 24 days without a public appearance, and some insiders are claiming it is because she is quietly planning a move back to Trump Tower in New York City.
The outing was her first public appearance in nearly a month following a kidney operation. "Fake News is really bad!" But, if she wanted to really make a big change - and to do it quietly - falling off the face of the Earth isn't the best way to go about it.
