Kellyanne Conway, known for being an American pollster, political consultant and pundit, and her daughter Claudia Conway have officially tested positive for COVID-19.
It appears that the COVID-19 outbreak in Washington D.C. has gotten to one of the most vocal opponents of the Trump administration: Claudia Conway. This is after Donald Trump revealed to the general public that he is also currently infected with the virus. President Trump, as well as other White House officials, have tested positive recently.
Claudia Conway just announced on Tik Tok that she has COVID.
No one deserves this.

It has been speculated that these officials were exposed to the virus at the Amy Coney Barrett nomination ceremony a few weeks ago. That event hosted about 150 high-profile guests and is now being referenced as the Rose Garden Massacre.
Kellyanne Conway, Claudia’s mom, was at the nomination ceremony. Most attendees, including Conway, were not wearing masks.
At least eight people who attended the event have now tested positive. And following that event, Kellyanne Conway also attended Tuesday night’s presidential debate.

Claudia, who is very active on TikTok, posted a video on the platform mentioning that her mom has been coughing all day after Trump announced that he got COVID.
Later that day, Claudia broke the news on TikTok that her mother had also tested positive. Kellyanne Conway tweeted to confirm the news on Friday night.
Tonight I tested positive for COVID-19. My symptoms are mild (light cough) and I’m feeling fine. I have begun a quarantine process in consultation with physicians.
As always, my heart is with everyone affected by this global pandemic. ❤️

Conway claims that her mother denied having the virus originally. She explained, “she also lied to me today and said her test was negative when it literally wasn’t and I spent all day around her.”
Claudia currently has 1 million followers on the platform and over 30 million likes. In her videos, she urges her supporters to vote and be proactive about this election. She also reminds everyone to wear masks and stay safe because the pandemic is, in fact, real.

Several TikTok users are supporting Claudia and have sympathy for the young teenager who is simply trying to live a normal and peaceful life.
One user said, “I am outraged that she endangered you like this. I have COVID too, sending love from Canada. Get better and stay strong. Proud of you for speaking out.”
Sending healing thoughts to #ClaudiaConway Poor girl. I truly feel such sympathy for her.

On Saturday, Claudia Conway revealed that she also tested positive for COVID-19. This continues to add to the already popular conversation on social media that Claudia should be emancipated. She has already spoken out about wanting to live her own life and that she hopes to be that granted freedom.
Claudia went live on Instagram two months ago to speak about the abuse she’s experienced in the past from both of her parents.
She has accused her mother of “physical abuse” and quitting her job with Trump to put on a show. Claudia explains it as “years of childhood trauma and abuse.” Kellyanne and her daughter have very opposite political views and many have speculated that this has caused an irreparable rift between them.
Explain to me how Claudia Conway getting COVID because her mom had it, knew she had it and lied to her isn’t child abuse.

People of all ages continue to express their support for Claudia on social media, especially TikTok.
One comment states, “Claudia Conway has COVID. Her parents literally gave their child a disease to make their boss happy. If this was the circumstances of someone who was poor, CPS would be all over it. This is disgusting and Claudia deserves better.”
We should all be very concerned about Claudia Conway. In addition to her exposure to COVID, her allegations of physical and emotional abuse against BOTH of her parents are deserve to be taken seriously.

Another person said: “Claudia Conway wanted to be emancipated and claims abuse. People dismiss her as just being 15 but her mom exposed her to COVID through negligence. Claudia is also saying her mom lied about being negative. If that’s true Kellyanne Conway needs a visit from social services.”
Many are wondering when or if Claudia Conway will be able to be emancipated. The dishonesty and inconsideration of her mother has now impacted her health. This is just another serious reminder that it’s crucial for everyone to wear their masks and continue social distancing.
