Conservative talk radio host Dana Loesch isn’t backing down after she ripped CNN commentator Kayleigh McEnany, a Donald Trump supporter, as “flat-chested.”

Ms. Loesch took issue with Ms. McEnany’s recent assertion that Republicans who don’t get behind the party’s presumptive nominee aren’t true conservatives.

“Babycakes,” Ms. Loesch said on her radio show Monday, “this [election is] more than going on television and flashing them pearly whites and your flat-chested, red-dressed, over-sprayed bleach blonde hair, while you sit here and you preach all this stuff about who is or isn’t a conservative.”

What Ms. Loesch didn’t know is that her rival underwent a preventative double mastectomy several years ago after learning she was BRCA1 positive and genetically predisposed for breast cancer, The Daily Caller reported.

Ms. Loesch, who has “watched every woman” in her family die from cancer, said she purposely used rhetoric similar to Mr. Trump’s in order to make a point.

“Her statement was asinine and my observation, delivered in the stated style of Donald Trump, was absolutely valid,” Ms. Loesch wrote in her blog Wednesday. “That I chose this rhetorical device (I even predicted the outrage and literally mocked it mid-monologue in the video) served the purpose of highlighting the hypocrisy of these most fervent supporters, and they didn’t disappoint with their hypocritical reaction.

“My observation as to the bouncers of conservatism was absolutely valid and deserving. My delivery served the stated purpose of showcasing the hypocrisy of this group,” she wrote. “Maybe they will now think twice before encouraging the Republican nominee in this behavior since they have just discovered how much they dislike it being used against them. I’m not hopeful, but I do wish they would fight Hillary as much as they attack other conservatives. I wasn’t #NeverTrump before, but thanks to the ‘outreach’ of people like this, I and others are just about there.”
