Being a teenager isn’t easy, especially when you are the daughter of a public figure. However, to rebel publicly against your well-known parents is another scenario. That's exactly the type of situation which White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s 15-year-old daughter Claudia is in the news for. She made headlines for taking her political differences with her family to the next level and "officially pushing for emancipation" in the wake of her mother's continuous support for President Donald Trump. 



The liberal teen has been openly feuding with her parents on social media platforms like TikTok and Twitter for almost the entirety of this summer. Her posts are mostly about her parents for their conservative views, and at one point, Claudia also urged Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to adopt her. She even tweeted that: “My mother’s job ruined my life to begin with. heartbreaking that she continues to go down that path after years of watching her children suffer. selfish. it’s all about money and fame, ladies and gentlemen.” And in another tweet, she said, “As for my dad, politically, we agree on absolutely nothing. we just both happen to have common sense when it comes to our current president. stop “stanning” him.”




She was quick to clarify the statement regarding her mom, according to Today.com. She tweeted, “Y’all love to twist everything.  i’m not getting emancipated because of my mom’s job.. it is because of years of childhood trauma and abuse.”


Soon #ProtectClaudia began to trend on Twitter. One user said, “A 15 year old girl seems to claim to have been abused by Kellyanne Conway, and that girl is her daughter Claudia.  Why are Republicans silent? We need to #ProtectClaudia! Who’s with me?”


One user said, "Given the way @claudiamconwayy is letting of shots around here, this may actually be a true instance of public figure stepping back and needing to focus on family. Some of the kids is gonna be alright. But #ProtectClaudia."


Another said, "Kellyanne & George Conway have subjected their daughter to unbelievable abuses. She's told us herself. The Conway's making this move, is nothing more than to silence her, because she now has lawyers involved and their livelihoods are at risk. She's in danger. #ProtectClaudia."


Another user said, "When one parent is unfit, the other one has to put their manhood aside and become a father a teenager wants and need. Kids are vulnerable, and there is not bigger failure than fail your kids. She needs attention. #ProtectClaudia."


According to a CNN report, White House counselor Kellyanne announced on August 23 evening that she will leave her post at the end of the month and even George Conway tweeted that he was stepping down from The Lincoln Project. Both stated the need to focus on family as a reason. The report quotes Kellyanne's statement as, "I will be transitioning from the White House at the end of this month. George is also making changes. We disagree about plenty but we are united on what matters most: the kids. Our four children are teens and 'tweens starting a new academic year, in middle school and high school, remotely from home for at least a few months. As millions of parents nationwide know, kids 'doing school from home' requires a level of attention and vigilance that is as unusual as these times." She is scheduled to speak at this week's Republican National Convention.

On the other hand, George, a frequent Trump critic, tweeted, "So I’m withdrawing from @ProjectLincoln to devote more time to family matters. And I’ll be taking a Twitter hiatus. Needless to say, I continue to support the Lincoln Project and its mission. Passionately."




Soon thereafter, Twitter weighed in on this news as well. One user said, "Kellyanne is leaving the White House at the end of the month, could say more but it would not be nice...I will miss George I really liked his comments...A family destroyed by politics and Trump..."


Another said, "I see Kellyanne Conway and George Conway both finally noticed what Twitter noticed months ago: That they have a daughter who has been in crisis for months (partly, apparently, over her mother working in service of fascism) & expressing it over Twitter. Better late than never."


One user said, "I wish all the best to Kellyanne and George. They are making the best decision for their family. Family first."


Another commented, "The twitter feed of George and Kellyanne's daughter yesterday was very scary reading. I am glad they are putting their family and their daughter first. I still loathe everything Kellyanne has done for the last 4 years."


Another stated, "KellyAnne and George Conway's daughter @claudiamconwayy made her parents quit both their jobs today and I'm here for it ."
