Kellyanne Conway spent Inauguration Day speaking with police officers in New Jersey after her daughter Claudia posted a video to TikTok claiming her mother was abusive. In the video, Donald Trump's former campaign manager is seen speaking with two officers, one of whom suggests that she shut off Claudia's internet and turn off her phone.
This is a big change from this same day four years ago, when Kellyanne was celebrating her historic win as the first female to manage a successful presidential campaign during the inauguration.
Claudia had posted a series of messages on TikTok Tuesday night which detailed the alleged abuse. One video featured a woman she identified as her mother saying: "F**k you, f**k you. It’s over, it’s over — I don’t care who’s following you, dumba**." That same woman can later be heard saying: "I can get you taken out of here today. You don’t f**king listen — what the f**k is wrong with you?"
In other videos this woman can be heard saying that a person cannot catch COVID from the president and calling someone an "ungrateful b***h." Claudia also stated that her mother was hitting her in one video. The videos were all edited, but that appeared to be on account of the 60 second time limit for any media posted to Tik Tok.
Claudia later said she was visited by officers while she was home alone on Tuesday night, she said, and informed them that she did not feel she was in any immediate danger. That appears to be why they returned to check up on her Wednesday. It is also worth noting that it based on Kellyanne's appearance in the videos, she did not attend her former boss' send-off soiree at Joint Base Andrews.
"She's probably going to publicly say that she's not abusive and whatnot, but that's what manipulators do and narcissists," noted Claudia in one video. "I'm not looking for attention. I'm not looking for anything. I'm in a situation that's really physically, mentally and emotionally abusive and I think it's important that everybody sees that."
Claudia also stated that she was being truthful and did not appreciate media coverage that painted her as a "rebellious teenager" or suggested her concerns were not legitimate. "They like to call me a rebellious teenager, or whatever, who's making up s**t, but I'm not. I'm not making up anything I'm just telling my side of the story and showing what I have and I'm not trying to cause anything. I just think it was important to make that public."
