Kellyanne Conway to leave the White House at the end of the month, citing the need to focus on her family

Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser to President Trump and one of his longest-serving aides, is leaving the White House at the end of the month.

Conway, whose title is counselor to the president, was Trumpís third campaign manager in 2016 and the first woman to successfully manage a presidential campaign to victory. She joined the White House at the start of Trumpís term and has been one of his most visible and vocal defenders.
Conway informed Trump of her decision Sunday night in the Oval Office.

Her husband George T. Conway III, a conservative lawyer and outspoken critic of the president, is also stepping back from his role on the Lincoln Project, an outside group of Republicans devoted to defeating Trump in November. He will also take a hiatus from Twitter, the venue he has often used to attack the president.

But their teenage daughter wanting emancipation?

Sheesh, no wonder both parents want to check out for awhile and work on family issues.

And the daughter hates trump? Must have been fun around that house.

Man, everything that bastard touches dies. Keeps gaining new meaning.

61. Too easy if I were to guess.

That would have surfaced years ago. They're both extremely vocal people.

This isn't year one, or even two here. This is well into the halfway point if year 3 and Trump's re-election.

This smells like strategy to me.

Yes, I'm a political cynic anymore. But, I've been watching for their exit and I truly think this is their out. This is how they (sans some post fake drama,) come out as a family again and reassume their politics status.

111. No way it could be staged...

If your exit relies on your daughter alleging that you physically abused her.

Once that has been alleged against her, KAC had no choice but to quit the Trump campaign. Every media appearance you made for the campaign, could be overshadowed by you being asked about your family situation. Even worse, you're damaged goods for any other campaign down the line. Even if the daughter recanted, nobody would want to publicly employ you.

My reading of this: I believe the daughter. Given her mother's family background and KAC's seemingly ascerbic ways with the press, KAC has always come across to me as the literal personification of 'Mommy Dearest'.

As for George, I think he has been the absentee father, who probably pulled away from his wife some time ago, but wanted to keep it together 'for the sake of the kid(s)'. I suspect given his status, he left much of his daughter's care and support to KAC, and has never really bonded with her (similar to what I think Barron is going through). I think the daughter would be okay if she had him to fall back on, but she feels abandoned by both parents and so figures why not go for emancipation? I really, really hope they all can come to a happy place at some point in their lives.

I think it's also indicative how much angst this President has caused between family and friends. The Conway's are a microcosm of what's playing out across the country with our own families and personal relationships.

Well, the GOP operative Rick Wilson wrote the book titled "Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real about the Worst President Ever". And it looks like the Conway family is just another group of casualties on an ever-growing list.

80. Kellyanne Conway's daughter Claudia, 15, says she's seeking emancipation

https://www.today.com/news/kellyanne-conway-s-daughter-claudia-conway-15-says-she-s-t190044

Claudia Conway, the 15-year-old daughter of Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, is seeking emancipation from her parents, she said on social media.

On Saturday night, after allegedly learning that her mother will speak at the Republican National Convention this week, the teen tweeted,"Iím (devastated) that my mother is actually speaking at the RNC. like DEVASTATED beyond compare."

In a follow-up post, she wrote: "iím officially pushing for emancipation. buckle up because this is probably going to be public one way or another, unfortunately. welcome to my life."

* * *
"Just found out my mom is a speaker at the RNC...that's it. i'm out. running away phase 1 starts tomorrow at 7 am," she wrote on the video.

125. I'm sure that had a lot to do with it, but a good caring parent wouldn't have allowed it....

....to reach that stage.

If she cared about her family she would have done this a year or two ago. It's not like the differences between her and George Conway have been a big secret.

One can only look at John Avlon and Margaret Hoover to see how to handle ideological differences. They get along great together, no family issues.

Well it's no surprise she is at a crossroads given the strange dynamics in that family where the parents' political views are diametrically opposed. I don't see her parents' marriage lasting as we've been witnessing it implode for a long time now.

That Kelly Anne has been a source of so many leaks that came from the Trump den of lies. For 1 thing there's no WAY her and George would be able to stay together this long had they been that diametrically opposed to a candidacy and administration.

I never forgot KAC complaining very early y on how hard it was to have to stand up out there and lie every day.

People like this have much more control over their children than we normal people do.

She'd be denied college monies, social status to get into college, and much much more down the line she will untimely end up relying on to advance in life.

Wait for it, they all reconcile and all will be well again.

62. In one of her videos she actually said how her parents were great

and told people not to say bad things about them.

The fact I see a lot of Kellyanne's act as performance art is another reason I feel this way.

I do believe the true feelings of the Conway couple is that both are Conservative but they both hate Trump .

This is kind of a chance for Kellyanne to leave the Trump admin and for them to move on with their life.

People might have more sympathy and the focus would be on their family more than the joke Kellyanne had become while working for Trump.

34. Wow. I would have liked to do that myself --

But she's only 15. They're never going to allow that.

I knew someone who did get emancipation that early, but her parents had abandoned her, and she was worried she'd be put in the foster system. She already had a job and was renting a spare room from a friend. But that was a dire situation.

Then again, if my mom worked for Trump, I'd want to get the hell out too.

42. I had read about that, but the only sources were some that I consider questionable.

I seem to recall earlier this summer reports that KAC wouldn't allow her access to social media because she was dissing the family.

Teenagers can be difficult to deal with at times, but something about this feels like a set up to me. I suppose time will tell.

This isn't real. It's well orchestrated, high end theater. Much faux drama will ensue. Then all will be pretty again.

This is her exit plan, and it appears his as well. They're going back to the fold of the mainstream Republicans. Post Trump.

57. Really?

Carville and Maitlin had no kids, so they could both play to their political preference. Don't think it's the same with the Conways....the 15 YO was obviously going nuts caught between these two media animals.

73. Sure.

It's not them playing up their 15 year old as an excuse to go back to their lives.

We shall see because this is just the end of their first act. Which is what I was saying, and am still saying.

Rich kids don't seek to be emancipated. That's only we poor or working class kids who have nothing to lose and true gains to assume outside of our families. Oh, and a few child stars, which don't apply here.

None of this makes sense. Which is why I'm not buying it wholesale.

I emancipated myself at 16 so I could go to college without my parents consent. We were working class and my family didn't want me to leave home so young. This made sense for me to do such.

A 15 year old without outside college funds and in need of her families backing to get into a "good" university doing such suddenly, publicly on twitter, doesn't make much sense. At least not to me. It feels extremely fake. Time will tell, but as of now I'm not buying it.

74. Emancipation was a stupid word to use. She's 15 YO.

But she's finding herself in an untenable situation within her family life. She wanted out because it was driving her nuts. George and Kelleyanne seem to have realized it and they both made important decisions to re-devote themselves to their family. How it turns out, who knows?

I do know this law. I've navigated it at a young age. When I saw this last night I knee jerk emphasized, and later dove into her claims. Then I literally rolled my eyes. She has no case for emancipation unless she wants to be placed in foster care. Trust me, that's not her end goal here.

This is a political stunt. Wait and see, this is literally how these people think.

I could give a shit about the legal definition, the fact that we need to liberate her from her family life is a joke compared to what millions of people who dealt with the term on a whole different level (real fucking slavery). You can make your legal construct, but it is an insult that a lot of Americans would reject.

term to a family situation like the Conways to a whole class of people that lived under a systematic form of overt racism. But, legally, you are probably correct. So, technically, you win the argument.

There's one verbal anti Trump conservative, but they're not a liberal and a conservative. We have one conservative playing sane, and the other playing the unhinged level of the spectrum. Both are vocal conservatives.

Again, this is their exit strategy. Much drama will ensue, and they'll all reconcile. These people have no morals and using their children was literally their exit plan from day one.

She might know something about family abuse, too.

Kellyanne Conway's grandfather 'was a mobster nicknamed "The Brute" who ran a New Jersey gambling operation'

Kellyanne Conway, 49, is special counselor to President Donald Trump
Conway is also maternal granddaughter of a reputed New Jersey mobster
James DiNatale was said to have had ties to Philadelphia's Bruno crime family
'Jimmy the Brute' was said to be associate of Nicodemo 'Little Nicky' Scarfo
Scarfo was said to be the 'heir-apparent' to Philadephia's Bruno crime family

Loyalty?

The largest book advance of all will be for Kellyanne when she is done with Trump.

She sold herself for money and fame, first with Cruz totally against Trump, and then switched over for more money and fame when Trump looked more favorable in the campaigns.

Her loyalty is for sale.

Was/is it irony when Kellyanne prostituted herself for money for Cruz or when she prostitutes herself for money for Trump?
