Kellyanne Conway appears to be facing a rising rebellion in her own home.
Of course, Barbie Riefenstahl’s husband, George, is one of the country’s foremost NeverTrumpers, and is also a key figure in the prolific, Trump-bashing Lincoln Project.
And now the couple’s 15-year-old daughter, Claudia, has wisely chosen the rebellion over the doomed Death Star.
Apparently she’s been using TikTok — which remains a mystery to me, in much the same way that AOL still befuddles my mother — to drag the ocher abomination.
Now her teen daughter has amassed a large following on social media where she posts anti-Trump and pro-Black Lives Matter videos.
“I know a lot of my friends are so informed and I think they wouldn't be if it weren't for social media, which is why I think using one's platform for good and for the education of others is so, so important, especially in our day,” Claudia told USA TODAY on Tuesday.
Claudia, one of the Conways' four children, said she holds the opposite political views of her mother and most of her family members. She and her mother sometimes get into political arguments, but have a “best friend” relationship, she said.
Ew. Imagine if your best friend was a Trumper. Then again, she’s just 15. She hasn’t met anyone yet.
I can relate, to a degree. My mom is a lifelong Republican who — vomit … meet Folger’s can — voted for Donald Trump. I’m afraid to ask her who she’s voting for this time around. Then again, she doesn’t go on TV every week to defend Trump and gaslight the nation. If she did, I might actually have to use the parental controls on her cable box to block Fox News.
But this is refreshing. Our youth may have to bail us out in all sorts of ways. And step one, of course, is getting rid of the shit-dirigible in the White House.
Thanks, Claudia, for rowing in the right direction with the rest of us.
