Kayleigh McEnany White House Press Secretary
On April 7, 2020 Kayleigh McEnany was appointed as the new White House press secretary replacing Stephanie Grisham, who had only been in the position for nine months and was the first press secretary in modern times never to hold a formal briefing for reporters.
Kayleigh McEnany Mastectomy
In 2008 McEnany underwent a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy at Moffitt Cancer Center to reduce her risk of getting breast cancer by 95%. This was after learning that she carried the BRCA2 gene, which meant she had a nearly 70 percent higher risk of developing breast cancer than a woman without the gene.
In 2010 had breast implants as a way to prepare for the eventual mastectomy. During that procedure, her doctor left a cavity that would expand with time. So when the breast tissue was removed during her mastectomy, McEnany kept the implants, eliminating the need for reconstructive surgery.

Kayleigh McEnany Coronavirus
In February 2020 during an appearance on Fox Business Network Kayleigh said, “We will not see diseases like the coronavirus come here.”
She credited Trump for putting America first. “This president will always put America first. He will always protect American citizens. We will not see diseases like the coronavirus come here. We will not see terrorism come here. And isn’t that refreshing when contrasting it with the awful presidency of President Obama?”
On the same day Larry Kudlow said coronavirus was “contained” on Feb. 25th, Trump’s campaign spox made an even more bold claim.
