Kellyanne Conway’s daughter is sending shockwaves through social media with her anti-Trump videos: ‘An outspoken leftist TikToker'

Kellyanne Conway’s daughter is sending shockwaves through social media with her anti-Trump videos: ‘An outspoken leftist TikToker'
C-SPAN

If a series of posts on the TikTok platform are any indication, Claudia Conway does not share her mother’s high opinion of President Donald Trump. The New York Times’ Taylor Lorenz is reporting, on Twitter, that Claudia Conway, the daughter of Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, is highly critical of the president in a series of posts and videos on the TikTok platform.


In one of her TikTok videos, according to Lorenz, Claudia Conway (whose TikTok account is @shortfakeblonde) complains about Trump supporters inundating her account with the assertion “Trump 2020!” And in another video, she encourages TikTok users to give one-star reviews to businesses owned by the president.

While Kellyanne Conway is one of Trump’s most ardent defenders, Claudia Conway’s father, attorney George Conway, is one of his most vehement critics on the right. And according to Lorenz, Claudia Conway isn’t conservative at all. Lorenz describes Claudia Conway as a “an outspoken leftist TikToker," and another Twitter user, @B0yblue_, described her as a supporter of Black Lives Matter.

Lorenz commented, “Honestly it would be so hard to have a famous parent in politics, especially if their politics didn’t match your own.”

Here are some of Claudia Conway’s videos and responses to them:
