Kellyanne Conway — the longtime ally to President Donald Trump, who’s worked both on his campaign and in the White House — seems to be the odd one out in her family. It’s long been known that her husband, the conservative lawyer George Conway, is an avid Trump opponent, and recently, it’s come out that her daughter Claudia is too. Claudia Conway has posted an array of videos to the popular video-sharing site TikTok in which she’s trolled the president — at one point, she suggested that her followers should leave one-star reviews online for the president’s properties, for example. Now, she’s started a Twitter account, where she called out women supporting Trump this Thursday.
On Twitter, she shared:
‘if you’re a woman supporting trump, i feel bad for you. you must really hate yourself. lots of internalized misogyny… yikes’

In a phone conversation with Business Insider which her dad, George, sat in the room for, Claudia Conway explained:
‘Growing up when your mom is Kellyanne Conway, it’s really really hard to disassociate yourself with that image because people look at me and are like ‘oh, that’s Kellyanne Conway’s daughter,’ she must love Trump. In reality, I really don’t.’
She added that she wants “nothing but success and good fortune for” her parents, adding that Kellyanne had apparently asked her to take down her TikTok videos — but Claudia declined.
Meanwhile, Kellyanne has kept up with her own fervent defenses of the president. This week, for instance, she freaked out after a reporter outside the White House asked her about Trump’s earlier retweet, which he subsequently deleted, of a video clip in which one of his supporters yells “white power!”
