Kellyanne Conway to get millions for memoir about Trump world, Internet says it's a 'lot for alternative facts'
Reports about Conway writing an 'unvarnished' book about her experience of the Trump's administration has apparently left the president's inner circle 'quaking in their boots'
Kellyanne Conway -- often dubbed the "True First Lady of Trump's America"-- has reportedly bagged a multi-million dollar deal to pen an "eye-popping" memoir of her time with President Donald J. Trump's administration. Rumors that Conway, 53, is releasing a tell-all, 'unvarnished' book about her experience of the Trump's administration has apparently left the president's inner circle "quaking in their boots," a source told the Daily Mail. The British newspaper reported that the deal offered to the former senior counselor to the president would easily eclipse the $2 million pocketed by former national security adviser John Bolton for his book.
An insider told the paper that Conway could actually amass tens of millions more from movie rights to the book. "Of all the White House insiders, Kellyanne is going to write the most unvarnished, eye-popping account of her time working for the president," the source said. "She's got some of us quaking in our boots."
Conway remarkably remained loyal to Trump despite her husband George Conway and daughter Claudia's dislike of him. However, she recently raised eyebrows after saying that it "looked like" former Vice President Joe Biden had beaten her boss in the 2020 election.
The mother-of-four, who is yet to comment on the book rumors, stepped down from her White House position just days ahead of the Republican National Convention in order to mitigate the drama within her family. "In time I will announce future plans," she said in a statement. "For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama."

Twitterati was inundated with reactions to the swirling book rumors.
"Wow. That's a lot of money for alternative facts," one user quipped, while another alleged: "Ofc she has. This was her and her bs husband’s plan all along." A third wrote: "When I'm in the mood to read speculative fiction (a.k.a. "alternative facts") I have plenty of Stephen King, Katherine Kurtz, and Lois McMaster Bujold to keep me busy."

Conway is reportedly being "literally barraged with piles of money" to reveal sensitive information about Trump and his inner circle. The book in question, however, is said to address the familial rifts that were caused owing to the nature of her job, as her daughter Claudia rebelled against the President on TikTok while husband George Conway founded anti-Trump super PAC The Lincoln Project.
Conway has previously written 'What Women Really Want: How American Women Are Quietly Erasing Political, Racial, Class, and Religious Lines to Change the Way We Live', published by Simon & Schuster in 2005. The renowned political consultant and pollster has been friends with Trump for decades and even polled for him when he was considering a run for New York's gubernatorial race in 2013. Then, in 2016, Conway joined Trump's presidential campaign; and due to her fervent defence of the former real estate mogul in the media, it has resulted in turmoil for the Conway family.
Claudia has previously claimed she was working hard to be emancipated from her parents as she accused her mother of "ruining" her life as a result of her high-profile job. However, the mother-and-daughter duo appeared to have made up as they celebrated Claudia's 16th birthday in October this year.
