It’s never been a secret that Donald Trump’s former campaign manager and snarky public mouthpiece, Kellyanne Conway, will do and say almost anything for attention. She may not so much be enjoying the increased attention she’s been receiving lately after her daughter posted shocking videos of her mother’s verbal and physical attacks.

On Monday, in posts that have since been removed, Kellyanne’s Twitter account, @kellyannepolls, posted photos of a topless, 16-year-old Claudia Conway, who had been reporting abuse for some time at that point. Shortly after the photos were removed, Claudia posted a Tik Tok video in which she was visibly shaken.
‘According to screen captures posted by users on social media, Kellyanne Conway’s account (@KellyannePolls) shared an image of her topless teenage daughter using Twitter’s recently launched Fleets feature, which deletes posts after a 24-hour period (similar to Instagram and Snapchat’s stories). The Fleet was removed but not before Twitter users documented it.’

In her video reaction, Claudia said she believed that her mother had been hacked, but the questions remains of why Kellyanne would have topless photos of her on her phone or laptop. Claudia said at the time she believed her mother had intended to use them against her.
‘I’m assuming my mom took a picture of it to use against me one day and then somebody hacked her or something. I’m literally at a loss for words. If you see it, report it.’
Since then, Claudia has called for peace as her family works through this incident. She asked that followers stop threatening her parents and calling police, and that she never believed that her mother actually posted the photos. Still, however, why did those photos exist?
‘In several TikTok videos posted Tuesday morning, Claudia Conway urged people to “stop calling authorities.” She said that she and her mother will be “taking a break from social media” and will work on their relationship. Claudia emphasized that making threats against her family also puts her in danger. “I know that my mom would never, ever post anything to hurt me like that intentionally, and I do believe she was hacked,” Claudia Conway said in one of the TikTok videos Tuesday.’
My daughter, Claudia, is beautiful & brilliant. She has access to top doctors & health care & lives comfortably
Like all of you, she speculates on social media
Yet she’s 15
You are adults
We have COVID, but it’s clear who’s really sick
