There's a "persistent" rumor that Trump lives in a separate house in DC with her parents and son, Barron Trump.
In a Washington Post story about the first lady's private life, her office refuted the rumor as "1,000% false." Trump's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham added, "We laugh at it all the time."
White House social secretary Rickie Niceta Lloyd called the rumor "an urban legend," and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said it was "ridiculous."
"Just when you think the Washington Post can't get things any more wrong, they do," Sanders said. "The first lady lives here at the White House. We see her here regularly."
Trump took longer than usual to move to the White House after her husband took office, spending the first five months of his presidency in New York City while Barron finished school in Manhattan.
In June 2017, the mother and son finally moved to the White House, and Barron started attending St. Andrew's Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland, in the fall.
