2nd Claudia Conway Update: Kellyanne Conway Is Leaving Trump White House at End of August to Take Care of Family


Kellyanne Conway has bent to the will of her 15 year old daughter. She’s leaving the Trump White House at the end of August to take care of her family.

I guess Claudia’s threats to seek emancipation, plus her other observations about her mother’s nefarious work have done the trick.

We owe Claudia a great thank you for ridding us of Kellyanne braying her way through the election. I can only hope we never see her or hear from her again.

Kellyanne’s estranged husband, George Conway, says he’s taking a break from Twitter. But not from the Lincoln Project, I hope. Maybe they’ll get that divorce.

The whole soap opera of Kellyanne and George has taken its toll on their family, not to mention all of us. But it was Claudia who was brave enough to stand up and say Enough! That girl is going places.

Ding dong the witch is dead. Bannon is on bail pending trial. Cohen is serving time at home. Manafort’s in jail. Roger Stone is in limbo. And so on. How lovely. Sean Spicer, I hope, has no career. Sarah Huckabee is waiting tables. Just brilliant.

Kellyanne’s statement:

“The past four years have allowed me blessings beyond compare as a part of history on Election Night 2016 and as Senior Counselor to the President. It’s been heady. It’s been humbling. I am deeply grateful to the President for this honor, and tothe First Lady, the Vice President and Mrs. Pence, my colleagues in the White House and the Administration, and the countless people who supported me and my work. As many convention speakers will demonstrate this week, President Trump’s leadership has hada measurable, positive impact on the peace and prosperity of the nation, and on millions of Americans who feel forgotten no more.The incredible men, women and children we’ve met along the way have reaffirmed my later-in-life experience that public service can be meaningful and consequential. For all of its political differences and cultural cleavages, this is a beautiful country filled with amazing people. The promise of America belongs to us all. I will be transitioning from the White House at the end of this month. George is also making changes. We disagree about plenty but we are united on what matters most: the kids. Our four children are teens and ‘tweens starting a new academic year, in middle school and high school, remotely from home for at least a few months. As millions of parents nationwide know, kids “doing school from home” requires a level of attention and vigilance that is as unusual as these times. This is completely my choice and my voice. In time, I will announce future plans. For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama.”
