President Donald Trump on Wednesday ripped the "unfair" and "vicious" media "narrative" surrounding First Lady Melania Trump's prolonged public absence, hours before she was scheduled to make her first public appearance in nearly a month.

"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," Trump tweeted Wednesday morning, ahead of the first lady's expected reemergence.

NEW YORK — Melania Trump is back in the limelight — sort of. The first lady made her first public appearance in nearly a month on Monday, and while the event was closed to the media , a reporter for a pro- Trump outlet was in attendance.

In a second tweet, Trump claimed that "Four reporters spotted Melania in the White House last week walking merrily along to a meeting" and "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."

The scathing tweets came just hours before the first lady was scheduled to appear alongside her husband at the headquarters of the Federal Emergency Management Agency in Washington for the 2018 hurricane briefing.

The expected appearance will be her first in public since May 10, four days before she underwent a procedure for what her office called a "benign kidney condition."

Her disappearance touched off a whirlwind of conspiracy theories over her whereabouts, her physical condition (she remained hospitalized for several days after her procedure) and the status of her relationship with the president — and it's raised the question of the significance of the first lady to the president's state of mind and the functioning of the White House.

And despite her husband's claims, Melania Trump's scheduled appearance could be her last for awhile.

The first lady's office said earlier this week that she would not be joining the president for the Group of Seven Summit in Canada later this week, or for the highly-anticipated North Korea meeting in Singapore on June 12.

On the left, in particular, there has been rampant speculation that the first lady has essentially been held hostage by her husband's presidency while he embarrasses her. Trump acknowledged earlier this year that he had compensated lawyer Michael Cohen for a hush payment to the adult film actress and director who says she had an affair with Trump while he was married to Mrs. Trump, who has repeatedly rebuffed her husband's attempts to hold her hand in public.

The first lady's office, however, has attempted to quash that chatter.

"I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing," Melania Trump's official account tweeted May 30. "Rest assured, I'm here at the @WhiteHouse w my family, feeling great, & working hard on behalf of children & the American people!"
