Melania Trump Is Released From Hospital After Kidney Surgery

First Lady Melania Trump was released from the hospital today after having to undergo a kidney procedure that the White House kept secret until it was completed.

On Monday, May 14, doctors at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center did a kidney embolization on Melania, 48. She was expected to stay in the hospital for a week, but was released on Saturday morning, May 19, her office revealed.

Her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said today, “The first lady returned home to the White House this morning. She is resting comfortably and remains in high spirits. 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.”

Pressed by CNN about why Melania, the wife of President Donald Trump, 71, had to stay in the hospital for five nights after what was termed a “routine” kidney procedure, Grisham noted, “Every patient is different.

“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.”

The President visited his wife multiple times following the procedure and on Friday assured reporters, “She’s doing great. Doing great.”

He had said on Tuesday she’d be coming home in “two or three” days, however, which didn’t happen.

Melania gave thanks for her great medical care on Wednesday, writing, “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.”

May 19, the day Melania was released from the hospital, was also the day of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s wedding. But Donald and his wife weren’t invited. The Presidential couple sent a donation to charity as a wedding gift on Harry and Meghan’s behalf.

FLOTUS attended former First Lady Barbara Bush‘s funeral in April, and gave no signs of having a health issue.

Melania is the first U.S. first lady to undergo such a serious medical procedure while in the White House since Nancy Reagan had a mastectomy in October 1987.

Kanye West’s tweets are all the rage nowadays.

West, who is an artistic genius and undoubtedly one of the most influential people of our time, set Twitter ablaze with his highly-anticipated return to the social media platform after an 11-month hiatus. But it wasn’t just Twitter that was buzzing about Kanye West and his tweets, it was also the media, the highest echelon of the political elite, and even President Trump himself.

After his return to Twitter, Kanye West’s account has been a fertile source of thought-provoking tweets. The “Famous” rapper has been tweeting non-stop and hasn’t been afraid of sparking controversy with his philosophical and motivational musings as well as politically-charged tweets. Twitter had never witnessed a stream of consciousness of that magnitude from a celebrity of that caliber before, but not everyone was amused. West expressed some love for President Trump, called him his “brother,” and shared a photo of his “Make America Great Again” hat signed by Trump with a sharpie, and the world pretty much melted down.

Mr. West needed only several tweets in less than 280 characters each to accomplish something other celebrities can’t do with their feuds, hate-charged disses and rants about their frenemies and explosive interviews. Kanye West is all about love and free-thinking, and it definitely attracts people, which is how Yeezy gained more than 8 million Twitter followers in less than 24 hours, according to SocialBlade.

Radar revisits some of Kanye West’s most iconic tweets from late April 2018 to let you feed off of Yeezy’s love-energy and free up your thinking.

Deathly Ill John McCain Bans Donald Trump From His Funeral

Deathly Ill John McCain Bans Trump From Funeral But What About Connie Stevens

John McCain, who has been battling brain cancer for months, is making his final plans and they don’t include his hated rival, President Donald Trump!

Sources close to the Arizona Senator said to the New York Times and NBC News that McCain’s people have told the White House that he doesn’t want Trump to attend his funeral; he would like Vice President Mike Pence to go instead.

But what about McCain’s secret love, actress Connie Stevens?

Sources exclusively told RadarOnline.com last fall that McCain, 81, has been saying tender private goodbyes to Stevens, 79.

McCain, who is married to second wife Cindy, 63, is head over heels with the blonde singer-actress, an insider claimed to Radar.

“John’s carried a torch for Connie for decades and dreamed of meeting her years before he finally did in the ’90s. He thinks she’s the most beautiful creature he ever saw,” the source said.

“He’s been secretly calling her. Just hearing her voice brings happy tears to his eyes.”

The insider says the feeling is mutual for Stevens, who played ­Cricket Blake in ’60s TV ­series ­Hawaiian Eye.

“There’s no doubt John ­McCain was — and still IS — very important to her,” the source said.

The pair first met in 1997 when Connie, mom of two daughters with second hubby Eddie Fisher, visited Washington, D.C., while making a Vietnam documentary.

“They’ve been close friends ever since,” said the insider.

Now Stevens, and all Americans, are sad about McCain’s dire diagnosis. The war hero has been battling an aggressive form of brain cancer for nearly a year and is at home in Arizona after undergoing surgery last month for an intestinal infection.

The man who ran for President in 2008 and lost to Barack Obama said in an audio excerpt this week of his forthcoming memoir, “I don’t know how much longer I’ll be here.”

McCain feuded with Trump after the brash billionaire shocked the public during the 2016 presidential campaign by saying the senator was considered a war hero during the Vietnam War only because “he was captured.” Trump contemptuously said he preferred military figures who avoided being captured.

Last summer, Trump slammed McCain for his “no” vote on the Obamacare repeal bill, which doomed it in the Senate.

Trump didn’t attend former first lady Barbara Bush‘s recent funeral in Houston, Texas, instead sending FLOTUS Melania.

Former Presidents Obama and George W. Bush are set to eulogize McCain at his funeral, which is to be held at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., the source close to McCain told NBC.

It looks like the end could be near as friends of McCain have visited him recently in Arizona, including former Vice President Joe Biden.

CBS reportedly has already prepared McCain’s obituary.

Now the question is, will McCain’s secret love Stevens be attending his funeral?

Trump-Hating FBI Lawyer Lisa Page Resigns In Latest FBI Implosion

Trump-Hating FBI Lawyer Lisa Page Resigns

Lisa Page, the FBI attorney whose explosive Trump-hating texts with bureau lover Peter Strzok stunned America, has resigned.

Jim Baker, fired former FBI Director Jim Comey‘s lawyer, also resigned on Friday and said he’d be working for a website.

The timing is telling — as an Inspector General report that will reportedly reveal alleged FBI misdeeds in its treatment of Donald Trump‘s presidential campaign is expected to be released later this month.

Page has faced months of scrutiny over text messages which she exchanged with Strzok, the former deputy chief of the FBI’s counterintelligence division. Strzok got transferred to the HR department and remains working at the FBI.

Page And Strzok left the Special Counsel investigation of alleged Russian collusion into the Trump campaign in September of 2017 after their bias against the billionaire businessman was discovered.

Strzok and Lisa Page, who allegedly had an affair, were caught exchanging anti-Trump text messages during the summer of 2017.

The texts referred to Trump as “an idiot” and “loathsome.”

The two also texted about about an “insurance policy” to keep Trump out of office.

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office…that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected…but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok text messaged to Page in an Aug. 15, 2016 exchange, referring to Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe (who was later fired).

“It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” Strzok added.

When Barack Obama was still President, Page and Strzok also texted about him wanting to “know everything” about the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Comey absolved Hillary in the email scandal before the election. Trump later gave him the boot, which led to the appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate the President. The ex-FBI director has blasted Trump in numerous interviews while promoting his memoir.

But Trump supporters hope the upcoming IG report discloses more on alleged Page, Strzok, Comey, McCabe, and other FBI employee dirty deeds!

Double Trouble! Porn Star Stormy Daniels Slaps Trump With New Defamation Lawsuit

Porn star Stormy Daniels has filed a new lawsuit against President Donald Trump, RadarOnline.com has learned — this time claiming he defamed her in a tweet.

In court documents obtained by Radar, Daniels, who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006, says he berated her after revealing a black and white sketch of the man she said threatened her back in 2011.

“A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!” Trump tweeted on April 18, 2018.

Daniel’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, used her real name, Stephanie Clifford, while claiming Trump’s tweet falsely attacked the seriousness of her claims.

“In making the statement, Mr. Trump used his national and international audience of millions of people to make a false factual statement to denigrate and attack Ms. Clifford,” the lawsuit alleges. “Mr. Trump knew that this false, disparaging statement would be read by people around the world, as well as widely reported, and that Ms. Clifford would be subjected to threats of violence, economic harm, and reputational damage as a result.”

According to Daniels, the man approached her in 2011, while she was with her baby daughter in Las Vegas, just a few weeks after she prepared to reveal the alleged affair.

“Leave Trump alone. Forget the story,” said the man, according to Daniels. He then leaned down and looked at Daniels’ infant child, and said, “That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if anything happened to her mom.”

During an April 17 appearance on ABC’s The View, Avenatti unveiled a sketch of the unidentified man, and announced a $100,000 reward for his identification.

The next morning, Trump, who had yet to address the allegations at all, issued his tweet.

Daniels’ lawsuit seeks more than $75,000 in damages. She’s also currently suing the president to void a nondisclosure agreement that she signed to prevent her from talking about her accusations.

Shania Twain Apologizes After Saying She Would’ve Voted For ‘Honest’ Donald Trump

Shania Twain Apology Voted Donald Trump

Shania Twain is under fire!

This Sunday, during an interview with The Guardian, the iconic country singer suggested — among other things — that she would have voted for Donald Trump has she been able to in 2016.

Her exact words were: “I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both. If I were voting, I just don’t want bulls**t. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?”

Of course, online haters immediately jumped at the performer, bashing her for calling the controversial President “honest.”

Hours later, Twain, 52, regretted her words and shared a lengthy apology explaining her comment.

“I would like to apologise to anybody I have offended in a recent interview with the Guardian relating to the American President,” she wrote on Twitter. “The question caught me off guard. As a Canadian, I regret answering this unexpected question without giving my response more context.”

“I am passionately against discrimination of any kind and hope it’s clear from the choices I have made, and the people I stand with, that I do not hold any common moral beliefs with the current President,” she added.

“I was trying to explain, in response to a question about the election, that my limited understanding was that the President talked to a portion of America like an accessible person they could relate to, as he was NOT a politician. My answer was awkward, but certainly should not be taken as representative of my values nor does it mean I endorse him. I make music to bring people together. My path will always be one of inclusivity, as my history shows.”

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Twain’s backlash over her provocative comment came just as she made her return to the spotlight. Her explosive interview was meant to be a promo for her album, Now, which is her first since 2002!

Twain left the stage after undergoing laryngoplasty, an operation to reconstruct her vocal box. She told The Guardian during her talk: “I never thought I’d sing again.”

Being at the center of a Donald Trump, 71, scandal was probably not her idea of a ceremonious Hollywood return.
