Kellyanne Conway feuded with her daughter Claudia about her Covid-19 diagnosis in the teenager’s latest TikTok video.
Claudia, 15, posted on the site to ‘clarify’ her claim that the Donald Trump aide had ‘lied’ about her test result on Friday – but the pair argued in the video as Kellyanne accused her daughter of ‘lying about your f***ing mother’.
The former White House advisor is in quarantine after announcing a positive test result on Friday, before Claudia revealed on Sunday that she too had contracted the virus.
The teenager also claimed while Trump was in hospital that the president was ‘doing badly… and they are doing what they can to stabilize him’ – contradicting the optimistic picture painted by Trump’s medics.
Claudia’s videos have made her an unlikely ‘whistleblower’ and social media star, but her mother cited a need for ‘less drama, more mama’ when she resigned from the White House this summer.

Claudia posted her latest video after writing in the TikTok comments section that her mother ‘lied to me… and said her test was negative when it literally wasn’t and I spent all day around her’.
Kellyanne Conway says she actually had three Covid tests on Friday, of which one came back negative and two positive.
Claudia’s latest video, since deleted, had a caption offering a ‘little clarification from my previous posts’ – while Kellyanne could be heard urging her daughter to explain the three tests.
‘My mother claims that she did not lie to me,’ the caption said. ‘She had three tests done, first negative, second two positive. We were not in communication. I misinterpreted it.’
Claudia then makes the same defense to her increasingly irate mother, saying that ‘I guess I misinterpreted it.’
Kellyanne mockingly repeats her excuse – ‘You guess you misinterpreted it?’ – to which Claudia says: ‘You said it was negative, so I spent the day with you.’
The Trump aide continues: ‘You’ve caused so much disruption. You lied about your f***ing mother? About Covid?’.
The camera then briefly turns to Kellyanne who asks ‘You’re taping me again?’ before the video cuts out.
Kellyanne Conway separately said on Tuesday morning that she and her daughter were doing well in quarantine
Conway also took aim on Tuesday at people criticizing her daughter on social media, saying she was ‘beautiful and brilliant’
Kellyanne Conway’s daughter, Claudia, said in a TikTok video on Sunday that she has tested positive for COVID-19 just two days after revealing her mother also has the virus
Kellyanne wrote separately on Tuesday morning that ‘Claudia and I are faring well in quarantine. Everyone else is negative.’
Taking aim at people criticizing her daughter on social media, she added: ‘My daughter, Claudia, is beautiful and brilliant. She has access to top doctors & health care and 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.’
Some Twitter users rejected Conway’s defense. Eugene Gu, an inveterate critic of Trump, accused her of ‘blaming others for what is your solemn responsibility as a mother’.
‘Yes, she’s 15 and you are her mother. You are the one who is supposed to set boundaries and teach her about the dangers and perils of social media,’ he said.
Another critic said: ‘She’s 15 and yet you threatened her. She’s 15 and yet she is more concerned about her country than the most influential Americans… she’s 15 and yet she’s braver than you.’
Others played down the teenager’s concerns about Covid-19, pointing out that most 15-year-olds are highly unlikely to be in danger from the disease. Another criticized Claudia for her ‘disrespect’ towards the president.
Claudia, as well as father George Conway, have long been outspoken critics of the Trump administration despite Kellyanne’s central role in it.
Kellyanne announced her resignation from the White House in August, saying that ‘for now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama’.
‘We disagree about plenty but we are united on what matters most: the kids,’ she wrote at the time.
George Conway also stepped back from his role on the Lincoln Project, a group of Republicans devoted to defeating Trump in November.
Despite her resignation, Kellyanne Conway attended the Rose Garden event on September 26 which is feared to have caused the White House outbreak.
After Trump announced his diagnosis on Friday, Conway announced her own positive test later that day, saying she had a mild cough and was in quarantine.
‘Update my mom has Covid,’ Claudia said in a TikTok video on Friday. In another video, Claudia claimed that her mother was ‘coughing all around the house’.

It comes days after Conway attended a White House event that is now linked to at least 15 other Covid-19 cases, including President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump
The teen first revealed that her mother tested positive for COVID-19 in a TikTok video and Conway later took to Twitter to confirm

Claudia later urged people to vote in another video as she continued to slam Trump
Commenting on Trump’s diagnosis, she said: ‘I don’t wish ill on anybody but… the irony’.
‘I hope the Lysol cures him,’ Claudia added, referring to Trump’s infamous suggestion that people could be injected with cleaning products.
She played a line from last Tuesday’s debate in which Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden tells Trump ‘you’re the worst president America has ever had’.
‘I’m furious. Wear your masks. Don’t listen to our idiot f*****g president piece of s**t. Protect yourself and those around you,’ she added.
Two days later, Claudia revealed her own positive test, posting a TikTok video with the caption: ‘Hey guys currently dying of Covid’.
Claudia became a viral star on TikTok after she began to criticize the White House and her family’s involvement.
Some of her admirers have even described her as ‘the supreme whistleblower of our time’ because of her unfiltered insights into a family at the heart of the Trump administration.
In one of her latest videos, she urged people to go out and vote. ‘If you will be eligible to vote by November 3 and you haven’t registered to vote already, please, please, please register,’ she said.
‘It’s super important to exercise your right that you have as an American in this country. Please vote.’
George Conway, one of the president’s most vocal critics, said on Friday that he was ‘livid’ about the maskless Rose Garden event attended by his wife.
Other Trump aides including Hope Hicks and Kayleigh McEnany have also tested positive since attending the event, along with the president and first lady.
Claudia Conway’s TikTok and Twitter tirades
Claudia Conway, 15, has been openly feuding with her parents on social media throughout the summer and has gained thousands of followers on Twitter, TikTok and Instagram.
The teen, who uses the handle @datjerseygirl, has gone viral for her ferocious views on Donald Trump, support for Black Lives Matter, trashing her parents’ marriage and asking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to hire her.
Last week she retweeted a post from AOC which said, ‘Team AOC is hiring!’, and responded: ‘Let me intern for you.’
Her TikToks have urged followers to leave one-star reviews for Trump-owned hotels, restaurants and golf courses and called for justice for black people killed by white police officers.
In a video from April she wrote: ‘when our president for the next four years is either going to be a r@pi$t or a r@pi$t.’
Claudia’s outspoken beliefs first gained traction at the end of June when New York Times reporter Taylor Lorenz shared several of her videos on Twitter, praising her as ‘an outspoken leftist TikToker.’
Not long after, her attorney father George Conway attempted to intervene, telling journalists that neither he nor his wife Kellyanne would allow them to speak to Claudia.
‘To journalists: @kellyannepolls and I do *not* consent to any communications between you and any of our minor children, including our daughter Claudia. So desist. Thank you,’ he wrote.
Claudia tweeted back: ‘You’re just mad that I’m finally getting my voice heard. sorry your marriage failed.’
A week later the dramatic teenager posted her ‘last tweet,’ claiming that her parents were making her delete her profile.
‘My parents are forcing me to delete social media so this is my last tweet. apparently, i don’t have a platform! it’s fake! love you all so much. keep fighting!’ Claudia wrote.
But just two weeks after her social media ban, Claudia tweeted to reassure followers she’d ‘got her phone back.’
She added: ‘probably wont have it for long though considering i’m about to revolutionize twitter brb (be right back).’
She then posted and retweeted a flurry of anti-Trump messages, replying to one of his tweets calling him ‘racist, homophobic and tyrannical’, and labelling him a ‘golfing idiot of a president’.
She wrote: ‘let’s stop giving mr. golfer attention and his supporters ammunition. for those eligible to vote, ESPECIALLY young people, you must #SettleForBiden.’
She wrote directly to the president: ‘babe maybe you should stop calling COVID-19 ‘China Virus’ and start calling it ‘America Virus’ since it’s THRIVING in our country.
The teenager added: ‘awe so where are your ‘condolences’ for the ONE HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND LIVES lost in YOUR country? yo i’m sorry but is this actually our president? he doesn’t even use correct english i’m crying.’
A few days later she posted a video on TikTok claiming that her mother had her ‘arrested for fake assault charges’ during a live stream.
Claudia said she needed a lawyer in the post which was soon deleted.
It’s a stark contrast to some of her earlier TikTok videos which had expressed anti-Trump views while asking followers to not attack her mother and father.
‘Just please no hate to my mom or my dad, they’re both amazing people… and I love them so much,’ she said on a video earlier this year.
She has since outlined that although she and her father George, who is also an anti-Trump tweeter, happen to agree on the president this does not extend to their broader political beliefs.
She wrote yesterday: ‘As for my dad, politically, we agree on absolutely nothing. we just both happen to have common sense when it comes to our current president. stop ‘stanning’ (obsessing over) him.
