Her absence has sparked all kinds of wild speculation, but the first lady has shown no interest in making an appearance just to knock down rumors.

"We saw so much happen over the past week but one thing we did not see was First Lady Melania Trump", Colbert said.

First lady Melania Trump looks over at U.S. President Donald Trump as they wait at the West Wing door to welcome French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte Macron at the White House in Washington, U.S., April 23, 2018. The president showed her to a seat in the front row before he headed for the stage.

A spokesperson for Melania Trump told Yahoo's Hunter Walker that the first lady would also be skipping the event.

"Mrs. Trump has always been a strong and independent woman who puts her family, and certainly her health above all else, and that won't change over a rabid press corps", said Grisham.

The liberal network's "Reliable Sources" newsletter led with a giant graphic of a calendar, placing question marks on each date since Mrs. Trump was "last seen" on May 10.

First Lady Melania Trump made her first public appearance in almost a month on Monday after undergoing a medical procedure in mid-May.

Grisham said the Gold Star families' event is important to Mrs. Trump and has been on her calendar for some time. "It's her style and we just have to accept that".

Colbert later joked that the White House had released an official photo of her attending Monday night's event before cutting to, well, the picture the show posted below.

Mrs. Trump stayed in the hospital for five days and has kept out of public view since returning home May 19.
