Claudia Conway: Why is America praising Kellyanne Conway's daughter and slamming her conservative parents?
Claudia Conway has gained quite a lot of popularity as a TiKTok star and is the daughter of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway and anti-Trump conservative, George Conway
Claudia Conway has been making headlines for blasting US President Donald Trump in a series of viral TikTok videos. Ironically, her own conservative parents are trying to shush her instead of looking at Trump's blunders, but Claudia is no mood to keep her mouth shut. And now the one question on the nation's mind is: Who is Claudia Conway and why is America applauding her right now?
The 15-year-old has gained quite a lot of popularity and grabbed many eyeballs, particularly because she is the daughter of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway and anti-Trump conservative, George Conway. "I grew up in a very, very conservative family, so I was only exposed to those views for a very long time. I decided to educate myself and think for myself," Claudia told Insider earlier this week."... I'm still a kid, of course. I took the time to educate myself and took the time to branch out and be exposed to other sides and other biases and whatnot. We do get into arguments a lot — I'm not going to lie."
She has been getting quite a bit of praise online. "Claudia Conway is a shining example of how young adults don't have to follow in their bigoted parents' footsteps. Kudos to Claudia for having the independence & confidence to recognize her mother, Kellyanne Conway's ideologies are not what's best for the future of America," one said. Calling her a national treasure, another said: "Claudia Conway is a national treasure."
If that was not enough, one even went on to say: "Pretty incredible that Claudia Conway has turned out as well as she has, considering that her mom has spent most of the last 3 years parenting Trump, not her."
Not pleased with all the attention Claudia's videos were getting, George asked all journalists to stop communicating with his minor children. "To journalists: @kellyannepolls and I do *not* consent to any communications between you and any of our minor children, including our daughter Claudia. So desist. Thank you," he tweeted. However, Claudia's backlash for her father's comment told a different story. "You’re just mad that I’m finally getting my voice heard. Sorry your marriage failed," she clapped back.
No sooner did she tweet it, the Internet thought she shouldn't have said it publicly. "Joking aside, I thought Claudia Conway's TikTok videos were funny at first but I think she's putting herself at risk by spilling details about her parents' marriage. The media is vicious and she is still a minor. I may not like her parents but I'm concerned about her safety," one tweet read and another said, "I can't decide if I think Claudia Conway is not holding back, or if I think that Claudia Conway is 100% in on her parents' grift and ready to cash in herself."
"I feel bad for Claudia Conway. Her shitty parents clearly hate each other. Her mom is complicit in a dangerous political regime. Her dad has made his loathing of his wife public. What an upsetting home for a teenager, especially when you're trapped with them during a pandemic," one said and another posted, "More Claudia Conway: 'Please stop supporting my dad because he’s trying to take down my social media accounts too'."
Another slammed her parents. "The fact that Kellyanne Conway tried to silence Claudia Conway, her own daughter, by trying to get her to delete her twitter account but not Donald Trump," the tweet read. Another said, "As much as I love Claudia Conway going off and think it's hilarious, it's sad at the same time. The damage that Kellyanne and George have done to their children is awful."
One Twitter user said, "Claudia Conway's a teenage girl with f**ked up parents, and they alone are responsible for putting her in this position. Her mother is a spokesperson for the President of the United States, and her father publicly rebukes her mom's boss constantly." Another posted: "My feelings for Claudia Conway are mixed. On one side, I'm 100% here for Gen Z coming out against their parents' bigoted views. On the other side, I don't think that publicly tearing into your parents' marriage is the right thing to do, even though I viciously abhor her mom."
