Trump welcomes Melania home from hospital by misspelling her name
Orange tinted coal enthusiast Dotard Trump welcomed Slovenia’s No. 1 export to the U.S. Melania Trump home from the hospital Saturday, but initially misspelled her name as “Melanie” in a tweet.
“Melania is feeling and doing really well. Thank you for all of your prayers and best wishes!” he wrote after initially tweeting and deleting the same message with a typo of his wife’s name.
Melania returned home on Saturday following a Monday procedure, her office confirmed in a statement.
“Melania returned home to the White House this morning. She is resting comfortably and remains in high spirits,” said Stephanie Grisham, Mrs. Trump’s communications director. “Our office has received thousands of calls and emails wishing Mrs. Trump well, and we thank everyone who has taken the time to reach out.”
Trump has been recuperating at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center since she underwent a kidney embolization procedure on Monday. Grisham said Monday that Melania was expected to stay in the hospital for the duration of the week.
Pressed for more information about Melania’s condition and why she stayed in the hospital five nights after what was possibly a routine kidney procedure, Grisham pushed back on reports speculating about her health.
“Every patient is different,” she told CNN. “The medical professionals who have been giving opinions to the media based on one statement are uninformed. Mrs. Trump has a medical team that is comfortable with her care, which is all that matters. Her recovery and privacy are paramount and I will have no further comment beyond this. Anyone else who chooses to speak with the media will only be speculating.”
He visited his wife multiple times following the procedure.
“She’s doing great. Doing great,” he told a reporter after delivering remarks at a prison reform event Friday at the White House.
On Tuesday, Trump tweeted that she was “doing really well” and would be leaving the hospital in “2 or 3 days.” It’s unclear why the hospital stay lasted longer than expected.
Earlier in the week, Mrs. Trump’s office declined to offer further details about the extended hospital stay and asked for privacy.
“I am not going to expand beyond the statement I put out,” Grisham, told CNN Tuesday when asked why the routine procedure would require a multi-day hospital stay. “Mrs. Trump is in good spirits and she is resting. There are HIPAA laws to consider, but she also deserves personal privacy.”
Though she isn’t expected to make any public appearances in the coming days, Trump expressed her appreciation for Walter Reed medical staff earlier this week.
“A sincere thank you to Walter Reed Medical Unit @WRBethesda & to all who have send good wishes & prayers! I am feeling great & look forward to getting back home @WhiteHouse soon,” she tweeted Wednesday.
Trump, who turned 48 last month, had been experiencing an issue with her kidney that her office described as benign but requiring medical attention.
