The media really can’t let this Melania Trump thing go, can they? The First Lady is still recovering after surgery for a kidney condition, but they’ve just got to find a way to make it shady somehow.

The AP apparently thought they had Donald Trump caught in some kind of web of deceit, as evidenced by this scalding-hot scoop:

More from the AP:

President Donald Trump said his wife, Melania, had a “big operation” to treat a kidney condition that lasted close to four hours, but that the first lady is “doing great” although she did not accompany him to Canada on Friday, per her doctors’ orders.

Trump told reporters as he left the White House on Friday for the G-7 meeting in Quebec that Mrs. Trump wanted to join him at an annual summit of leading industrialized nations, as she did last year, but that she “can’t fly for one month.”

“First lady’s great. Right there,” Trump said, pointing up to the White House from the driveway. “And she wanted to go. Can’t fly for one month. The doctors say. She had a big operation. That was a close to a four-hour operation. And she’s doing great. Right there.”

Trump’s comments only added to the mystery surrounding his wife’s recent hospitalization and nearly four-week absence from the public eye.

“Added to the mystery”? We hate to break it to you, AP, but just because you and the MSM wish that Melania’s absence is a mystery doesn’t make it so. You people need to sit down before you hurt yourselves.

Good God, AP.

Oh, but they can. And we have no doubt that they’ll do it again.

We’ll close with some parting evergreen advice:
