This year, the Palm Beach County Republican Party held their annual “Lincoln Day Dinner” at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club.
According to a reporter with WPTV-TV, the program handout for the event featured former President Abraham Lincoln wearing a famed “Make America Great Again” hat.

But apparently that was too much for Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton. She took to Twitter Saturday to show her disbelief that the event’s program did, in fact, feature Lincoln in a “MAGA” hat.
“Please tell me this is photoshopped. Please?” Clinton pleaded.
Please tell me this is photoshopped. Please? https://t.co/WezDQx6IvT

Twitter proceeded to troll Clinton with hilarious comments:
No, Lincoln actually wore that hat in 1865; it was found at Ford's Theater. https://t.co/SblPYHNnf0

@ChelseaClinton Lincoln just got off his unicorn and just when the Bosnian sniper fire started, he put the hat on.
