Claudia Conway, the teenage daughter of political figures Kellyanne and George Conway, is continuing to criticize the Trump administration — and her mother’s politics — on social media.

On Friday, the 15-year-old responded to several of her mother’s tweets, much to the delight of her robust Twitter following.

The Conways’ most recent public disagreement began when Kellyanne Conway, who serves as an advisor to President Donald Trump, tweeted a tribute to Herman Cain, writing that the businessman and political activist had “led a remarkable life and will be missed.”

Claudia Conway took issue with her mother’s framing of the situation. 

<p class="canvas-atom canvas-text Mb(1.0em) Mb(0)–sm Mt(0.8em)–sm" type="text" content=""yes it is sad but wasn't your administration complicit in his death ?? yikes," she responded.” data-reactid=”27″>”yes it is sad but wasn’t your administration complicit in his death ?? yikes,” she responded.

It remains unclear how he contracted the virus, but he tested positive 11 days after attending a campaign rally for Trump in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Within minutes of posting, the reply racked up over 1,000 likes and hundreds of comments.

<p class="canvas-atom canvas-text Mb(1.0em) Mb(0)–sm Mt(0.8em)–sm" type="text" content=""If ever I turn into a completely soulless ghoul, I hope my daughter trolls me as magnificently as you do your mom," writer Jon Zal quipped.&nbsp;” data-reactid=”31″>”If ever I turn into a completely soulless ghoul, I hope my daughter trolls me as magnificently as you do your mom,” writer Jon Zal quipped

The family feud, however, did not stop there.

<p class="canvas-atom canvas-text Mb(1.0em) Mb(0)–sm Mt(0.8em)–sm" type="text" content="In another tweet, Kellyanne Conway reiterated a comment from Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, regarding mental health and the COVID-19 pandemic. &nbsp;” data-reactid=”33″>In another tweet, Kellyanne Conway reiterated a comment from Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, regarding mental health and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Her daughter fired back.

Conway went on to point out what she saw as a flaw in her mother’s reasoning.

“also considering that we KNOW that that adults and those 65+ are at a MUCH higher risk of contracting and dying from COVID-19, why is this relevant? sick,” she wrote.

“What an idiotic argument backed with no logic,” Claudia Conway responds. “this is not a matter of bipartisan politics. suicidality is NOT to be compared to covid-19 deaths. i’m very disappointed in you.”

The tweet has since been deleted.

The screenshot immediately received 1,000 likes, and Conway was quick to clarify her intentions to her followers.

This isn’t Conway’s first brush with online attention

Conway’s outspoken social media presence first received widespread attention in June when viewers discovered the teen’s TikTok account, where she frequently posts videos criticizing the Trump administration and professing her support for left-wing causes.
