Claudia Conway, the 16 year old daughter of former Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway and Republican attorney and Trump critic George Conway, is desperate for emancipation after sharing videos earlier this year of flagrant mental, emotional and physical abuse at the hands of her mother.
Now, after the public has been calling on child protective services and law enforcement to to intervene, it seems that Kellyanne has gone so far as to leak topless photos of her daughter onto her Twitter Fleet (Twitter’s answer to Instagram stories, which automatically disappear after a set amount of time).
It is unknown if the photo was posted intentionally to embarrass her daughter or accidentally, but the fact that a mother had the photo of her topless daughter on her phone in the first place is troubling. Claudia’s original TikTok reaction has since been deleted, however it has renewed speculation that she is caught in a web of abuse at home.
Rumors have been swirling for a while that her parents relationship is deeply troubled, each caught on very different sides politically; her father is one of the founders of The Lincoln Project, a Political Action Committee formed with the sole purpose of defeating Trump’s re-election at all costs, while her mother was a prominent member of Trump’s team from the beginning.
Kellyanne left her job in August 2020, ostensibly to focus more on her family, though it is looking more and more like she resents her daughter, even going so far as to being caught on film insinuating she wished she’d had an abortion.
Since the leak of the topless photo, Claudia has confirmed it is real and that her mother is the only person who would have had a copy of it.
“The picture is from months ago, and so I’m assuming that when my mom took my phone — anytime she’s taken it, because she takes it all the time, she took a picture of that,” she said in a video captured by Twitter user Leah McElrath. “So that was on her phone, and I guess she accidentally posted it or somebody hacked her, but nobody would ever have any photo like that. Ever. So, Kellyanne, you’re going to fucking jail.”
Claudia also apparently began posting in Morse Code asking for people to spread the message to raise awareness about the issue since she couldn’t. All in all it paints a very disturbing picture of a family in crisis.
While Kellyanne has yet to respond, father George Conway has posted only a short link to Claudia’s TikTok with a video of the young girl asking people to back off and saying she would be taking a social media break. Unfortunately, this must be taken with a grain of salt considering Claudia has already mentioned several times that she’s been forced to write fake posts in the past and has firmly stated that she would never willingly take a break from social media.
For now, we must wait and see what happens, hoping that help will come, and it will be in time for this young girl and her troubled family.
