Claudia Conway Breaks Silence After Parents George and Kellyanne Announce Divorce


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Claudia Conway, the daughter of former Trump White House political counselor Kellyanne Conway and ‘Lincoln Project’ co-founder and attorney George Conway, has finally spoken out following the news that her parents are divorcing.

Claudia took to Twitter to make her first remarks since the troubled couple formally announced they were splitting after more than 20 years of marriage.

“For those asking how i am, i’m slaying per usual,” Claudia, 18, tweeted.


She went on to criticize how the media has treated her mother, who served as Trump’s top political counselor, as well as the overall reporting regarding the divorce.

“Also why does the media love to tear women down … all these journalists hatefully commenting on another woman’s marriage are either divorced, will be single forever, or haven’t met their husband’s secretary yet,” she added.

She went on to reply to a Twitter user who asked how she felt about the fact that her folks were going their separate ways.

“I think everyone banks on having that picture-perfect ‘nuclear family’ but families come in all different structures so to put it simply, i love both of my parents and am excited for the new chapters of their lives that they are stepping into,” she said.

The couple released a statement earlier this month after news of their pending divorce was reported.

“We married more than two decades ago, cherish the many happy years (and four corgis) we’ve shared, and above all else, our four incredible children, who remain the heartbeat of our family and our top priority,” the couple said.

“We remain united as parents to provide love, joy, comfort and protection to our beautiful children,” it added.


There had been a growing conflict between Kellyanne and George, the latter of whom has long been a vocal critic of Trump and tormented him throughout his presidency, helping to found the anti-Trump Lincoln Project that is now defunct and was itself a center of controversy.

Former President Donald Trump did not waste any time in responding to the news of the impending divorce of Kellyanne from George, the latter of whom was a vehement critic. He issued his response on his Truth Social platform after news broke that the couple, who was married for 22 years, was calling it quits.

“Congratulations to Kellyanne Conway on her DIVORCE from her wacko husband, Mr. Kellyanne Conway. Free at last, she has finally gotten rid of the disgusting albatross around her neck. She is a great person, and will now be free to lead the kind of life that she deserves…and it will be a great life without the extremely unattractive loser by her side!” the former president said.

George was a frequent tormenter of the 45th president while he was in office, something that Kellyanne revealed in a book published last year was a huge strain on their marriage.

The Daily Mail noted further:


Kellyanne, 56, became a Trump advisor in 2016, serving as his campaign manager. While she endlessly worked for the president, her husband – who co-founded the Lincoln Project, which worked to prevent Trump’s reelection – blasted the president on social media. 

It seems the divorce hasn’t slowed his criticism down any, as he was active on Twitter lambasting the former leader on Friday, including retweeting a post where the president’s sanity was questioned. 

George Conway was not always anti-Trump. In fact, reports claimed he “cried tears of joy” when Trump defeated Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton.

CNN reported:

George Conway, a lawyer who had once been considered for multiple Justice Department positions in the Trump administration, was the one who had encouraged Kellyanne Conway to take the job managing Trump’s presidential campaign when Trump was a candidate in 2016, she told CNN in an interview last year.


She went on to become the first female campaign manager to win a presidential race.

Kellyanne Conway said in the 2022 CNN interview that she and her husband had made the decision to move together with their four children to Washington to work for the Trump administration but once they got there, George Conway “changed his mind about Donald Trump somewhere along the way.”

George Conway later joined the Lincoln Project, a group founded by anti-Trump Republicans, and went on to become one of Trump’s harshest critics, which drove a very public wedge into the couple’s marriage.
