When the Lincoln Project isn’t jacking other people’s tweets to plagiarize, we guess its senior advisers play stand-up comic while watching the Republican National Convention. One of the early speakers Wednesday night was White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who spoke about her decision to undergo a double mastectomy.
Kayleigh McEnany talking about cancer survivors as heroes. Telling her story about testing positive for BRCA2. Talking about the support she received from POTUS and says he supports everyone like this. pic.twitter.com/LvYSPtJ9aN

Absolutely incredible and brave testimony from @kayleighmcenany. Smart politics too.

I got to know Kayleigh McEnany years ago. Her strength, which I've witnessed close up, is impressive. We've disagreed on nearly everything since then, but I'm proud of her for sharing her story. #RNCConvention

"With my mom, dad, husband, and Jesus Christ by my side."
Thank you @kayleighmcenany for sharing such a powerful personal story! ❤️

Unreal bravery from @kayleighmcenany, who's public life is in front of the cameras everyday, to share a personal healthcare story like that.

Kayleigh McEnany gives a deeply personal speech on the third night of the convention, talking about her decision to undergo a preventative double mastectomy after testing positive for the BRCA2 gene. She says the president called her afterward.

As we all know, Democrats and Never Trumpers have to find fault with each and every speaker, and Lincoln Project senior adviser and member of USA TODAY’s board of contributors Windsor Mann thought McEnany’s speech was a little confusing.
UPDATE: It looks like Mann deleted the tweet, so here’s a screenshot:
Vote for Trump because Kayleigh McEnany had a mastectomy with Jesus Christ?

This is the kind of shit you churn out when you join up with grifters like The Lincoln Project. https://t.co/5CV4NUQMzl

A lot of Mann’s followers thought that was a good one:
And now has nice tits that DHT admires.

I knew she was missing something…just assumed it was a conscience.

Do she also have a lobotomy with this Jesus Christ?

I guess we are suppose to vote for trump because she had a boob job? I’ve had friends and family that had breast tissue removed. Not that rare. But most couldn’t afford the breast augmentation after. #TrumpThreatensAmerica

And, electively. It says a lot about what shit she’s not seen in her life that she thinks this decision, while difficult for a woman to make, is somehow profoundly moving. ?

I’ve suffered breast cancer….surely telling this story will make me appear more human and sympathetic.
