Melania Trump was taken to the hospital for kidney surgery on Monday afternoon. Once Donald Trump offered his thoughts, the reaction was as expected.

Trump on Melania

The relationship between Donald Trump and Melania Trump has reportedly been shaky for sometime. Even during the 2016 election, many questioned how close the couple were. Following the release of the now infamous "Access Hollywood" tapes and the over a dozen allegations of sexual misconduct against Trump, additional reports have cast even greater doubt on the status of the first couple.

With the Stormy Daniels scandal remaining in the headlines, their relationship seems rocky at best. On Monday, CNN reported that Melania Trump had been taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center just outside Washington, D.C. for surgery on her kidney that was described as "benign" but also needing attention.

After the surgery was reported a success, Donald Trump took to Twitter on May 14 to add his thoughts. "Heading over to Walter Reed Medical Center to see our great First Lady, Melania," Trump tweeted.

"Successful procedure, she is in good spirits," he added about the first lady, before concluding, "Thank you to all of the well-wishers!" While Melania Trump appears to be doing well, those who oppose the president wasted no time hitting back.

Twitter revolts

Following Donald Trump's tweet about Melania Trump's kidney surgery, social media went viral.

"Nope. Millions of Americans would rather you don't try to speak for us," one tweet read.

"Make sure to bring your prostitutes," a Twitter user wrote.

"Was about time...after our tweets u thought.. hmm maybe i need to go to see how she is doing," another tweet added with sarcasm. "Just Shut The Hell Up you lying piece of garbage that you are nothing but, a Orange Buffoon," yet another tweet stated. "Good thing we reminded ya, huh! You can PVR Fox so you'll know what to say and do tomorrow," a post noted with apparent mockery.

"Dipsh*t, go see your wife don't tweet about it.

Then again don't see her, she may recover faster not being reminded this is what she'll get out of the hospital to see," a social media user wrote. "It's about time. You should of hold her hand the entire time. Good and honest husband's do that without even thinking about it," a follow-up tweet read. The backlash continued as the divide between Donald Trump and many Americans moved forward.
