Michelle Wolf is at it again, this time with her sights set on Melania Trump and the recent speculation about her health following surgery.

Trump attended as honorary chair of the annual gala, where she thanked performers and congratulated this year's winners of the Lincoln Medal, an award honoring those who have embodied President Abraham Lincoln's legacy through their work, according to the White House.

'I was honored to be part of such a special evening, ' said First Lady Melania Trump. "Tonight reminds all of us about the power the arts have in cultivating the American voice", she said, according to the Daily Mail.

Melania Trump, 48, had all but disappeared from public view after an announcement made by her staff on May 14 revealed she had undergone an embolisation procedure to treat a kidney condition, which was described as benign.

Donald Trump's Twitter page was home to an explosive rant about his wife after she had a kidney operation. "She had a big operation, that was close to a 4-hour operation".

Media and internet conspiracy theories rose up as she recovered from the surgery, claiming that she had moved back to NY or was cozied up with the Obamas writing a tell-all about plastic surgery and her husband.

The first lady's office says she delivered remarks at the conclusion of Sunday's performances thanking Ford's Theater and the artists.

He said the win was special because it came 40 years after Canadian Gilles Villeneuve had won his first race for Ferrari. Vettel said he was "not too bothered" about retaking a lead he last held after the Chinese Grand Prix back in April.

By Monday, she was back behind closed doors.

In the past, the stylish, Slovenia-born first lady has been an asset to her husband on the world stage, and has at times softened the image of a president who tends to use blunt force in his diplomatic efforts.

Mr Trump added that the USA first lady is "doing great".

"We must determine the extent of the president's leaking, its impact on the financial markets and whether Trump's friends benefited from it", said Wyden.

This isn't the first time the first lady has likely used fashion as a way of speaking without saying a word. The First Lady wore a $2,700 gown to the annual event, which was mostly black and featured white paneling across the chest, as well as shimmering gold straps.

The source added: "I don't know exactly when the move is supposed to happen, but it is being talked about as a permanent move".
