From Cardi B’s’WAP’ Ringtone Hack To Her Daughter’s Plea To AOC — Here’s A Brief Timeline Of The Public Dumpster Fire That Is Kellyanne Conway’s Life

Up until a few months ago, you likely thought very little about Kellyanne Conway’s life at home. Or at least the life that she shares under a roof with her kids. Of course, when it initially came to light that the counselor to Donald Trump had a husband with a strong distaste for her boss we were all intrigued. After all, Trump is the worst and in November 2018 when George Conway (Kellyanne’s husband) wrote a scathing op-ed in the New York Times about him it unleashed a frenzy of dismay. What’s more, it seemed to ultimately inspire a contentious and bitter squabble between the Right-wing politicians and their triad.

Since then, George has repeatedly lambasted Trump and founded a conservative super PAC with the intention of defeating the president in the 2020 elections. While on the other hand, Kellyanne and her boss have responded to his criticism accusing George of being a “stone-cold LOSER & husband from hell” (a claim lodged by Trump) and pointing out that George is “not a psychiatrist” (a statement by Kellyanne in defense of Trump).

In short, the entire thing has been a complete dung show and only got worse after the Conways’ daughter (Claudia Conway) got into the mix.

This past summer Claudia Conway seemed to truly up the ante of whatever dumpster fire of a relationship her parents have going on. Yesterday it all came to a head when both of her parents announced that they would step down from their positions of power.

On Sunday, after a weekend of tweets and TikToks loaded with accusations from their daughter (including her announcement that she was seeking to be emancipated from them), Kellyanne announced in a statement that she was leaving her post at the White House.

“This is completely my choice and my voice. In time, I will announce future plans,” she said of her decision “For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama.” George added to the conversation saying that he would be leaving his position at The Lincoln Project.

How did it all come to this you ask?

Check out the timeline below.

June 2020: Claudia described herself as anti-Trump and pro BLM on TikTok.

This was all done, despite her mother and her boss’s racist stances.

July 3, 2020: Claudia live streams her mom.

In a video posted to TikTok and shared on Daily Mail, Claudia live-streamed her mother as the two argued and Kellyanne attempted to shut the showdown.

“You can get back to it, turn it off,” Kellyanne said in the video. “Turn it off now lady.”

“No I’m not ok thanks guys though,” Claudia replied to commenters and blatantly ignoring her mother before adding “I’m just showing everyone the truth, you’re literally not letting me use my freedom of speech.”

July 3, 2020: George tries to stop the presses when it comes to interviews with his daughter.

“To journalists: @kellyannepolls and I do not consent to any communications between you and any of our minor children, including our daughter Claudia. So desist. Thank you,” he tweeted.

July 3, 2020: Claudia slams her parents’ marriage

Claudia’s response to her father’s tweet was “you’re just mad that i’m finally getting my voice heard. sorry your marriage failed 💅🏼” — CLAUDIA CONWAY (@claudiamconwayy) July 3, 2020 The tweet has since been deleted.

July 15, 2020: Claudia dubs Kellyanne “Smelly Kelly.”

In a snarky post to her TikTok page, the outspoken anti-Trump teen trolled her mother saying “Hi Smelly Kelly! The rumors are true. I have been cured from my radical leftism,” the 15-year-old said.

August 22, 2020: Claudia says she was “officially pushing for emancipation.”

After having her social media accounts deleted by her parents, Claudia returned to Twitter like a bat out of hell and lodged various accusations against her parents throughout the weekend. Including accusing her mother of being abusive and having her arrested.

Writing about her mother, Claudia tweeted “Buckle up because this is probably going to be public one way or another, unfortunately. Welcome to my life,” she wrote.

“My mother’s job ruined my life to begin with. heartbreaking that she continues to go down that path after years of watching her children suffer. selfish. it’s all about money and fame, ladies and gentlemen,” Claudia tweeted soon after.

A Woman On TikTok Gave Her Followers Insight Into What It Feels Like To Be Paralyzed


A Woman On TikTok Gave Her Followers Insight Into What It Feels Like To Be Paralyzed

In 2009, the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health reported that almost 5.4 million people in the United States live with paralysis. Still, despite how common this is, few people understand the condition of paralysis and how it affects a person’s daily life. Twenty-two-year-old Jessica Tawil, of New Jersey, recently set out to explain the experience on TikTok last year.

Since her first post in November, the TikToker has garnered over 1 million followers with content that focuses on her experience of being paralyzed from the waist down.

In a post shared on her TikTok page, Tawil explained an exercise that might give people a chance to understand the sensation of being paraplegic.

In a post shared on her TikTok page, Tawil shared an exercise with her followers that demonstrates how it feels to not be able to move a ligament. In this case, it’s your finger. According to Buzzfeed, Tawil came across the exercise after looking through posts related to disabilities. “I remember feeling so blown away because my legs felt the exact same way as my finger did,” she said.

“Not many people know too much about paraplegics and their capabilities, so I wanted to be that light to inform, educate, and even entertain people,” Tawil explained to BuzzFeed. “I want people to know what it’s like to be paralyzed … so that they can be a little bit more appreciative of what they have and remain humble.”

Tawil’s video demonstration currently has over 12 million views.

Tawil explained that a kidnapping and car accident led to her paralysis when she was in her teens.

Tawil explained that the accident took place on Nov. 15, 2014, when she went to a friend’s house in high school. When she arrived, Tawil discovered that men were present and instantly felt uncomfortable when she further learned that they had brought drugs and alcohol.

“When I eventually asked them to take me home, they took me to an abandoned road instead. When we got to this road, the driver stopped the car and put his foot on the gas and brake at the same time, doing a burnout with his wheels. He lost control of the car and crashed into a tree,” Tawil explained. “It was at this moment that I got whiplash, split my head open to the point where my skull was exposed, and sustained a spinal cord injury — leaving me paralyzed the moment we crashed,” she said. “Paramedics said that I lost the equivalence of a ‘Coca-Cola bottle of blood’ out of my head, and didn’t think I’d make it if they drove me to the hospital. So they drove me to a nearby soccer field where a helicopter airlifted me to the ICU. From there on, I went through seven months of rehab and remained permanently paralyzed and wheelchair-bound.”

Speaking about her injury, Tawil says she was “robbed of my ability to use the bathroom normally (I depend on catheters and enemas).”

Sadly Tawil says her experience led to her reclusiveness and weariness to trust others. Still, she finds that her disability comes with positives. “On the positive side, I have become a lot more spiritual and grateful to have been given another chance at life,” she told BuzzFeed. “My accident has emphasized the fact that we are not promised tomorrow, and that we should always be grateful for the simplest things in life… I also want to show people how I live my life in the present day — what is life like as a wheelchair user? — and devote my channel to being a blog where people can get to know me on a lot more of a personal level.”

Here Are The Executive Actions That President Biden Is Signing His First Day In Office

Here Are The Executive Actions That President Biden Is Signing His First Day In Office

President Joe Biden has a lot of work ahead of him and he is hitting the ground running. On his first day in office, President Biden has a series of executive actions he is signing to reverse a lot of the damage created by the Trump administration. Here are some of the things President Biden will do with these actions.

The border wall on the southern border is done, y’all.

President Biden is saving the taxpayers billions of dollars by halting the construction of President Trump’s border wall. The border wall is one of former President Trump’s several unfulfilled promises at the expense of the taxpayers.

Despite his unrelenting campaign, Mexico never paid a dime to the wall. President Biden’s action to halt the border wall is a humanitarian and conservationist move that will save billions of tax dollars. According to estimates, there would be $3.3 billion in unused funds in the projects accounts.

The emotionally devastating Muslim ban will finally come to an end.

Former President Trump famously put an end to travel from predominantly Muslim countries. The order arbitrarily excluded a group of people based on their religion. The order that has kept families apart for years is finally coming to an end thanks to President Biden.

President Biden’s ation will bring families together and safeguards the rights of religious freedom. The ban has kept spouses separated, children apart from parents, and caused real damage. There is more to be done to make up for the stain on American history and the action is the first step.

The Keystone XL Pipeline is toast.

We all remember the terrifying scenes of Native people being brutalized by federal officials under Trump’s command. President Biden will make sure that the permit for the pipeline is revoked and put an end to a project that has been devastating the Native community. Activists have been fighting for years to get this done.

Undocumented people will have to be included in census counts.

President Biden is getting rid of the Trump administration’s terrible policy of ignoring undocumented people in the census. There have been several arguments by officials that the move would work to undermine certain states. The policy would take federal money away from states that did not support the former president and have high undocumented populations.

President Biden is going to preserve DACA.

More than 600,000 people benefit from the Obama-era program. Former President Trump waged a war against DACA and Dreamers for political points. Most Americans support DACA and a pathway to citizenship for DACA beneficiaries. With the new executive action, President Biden will instruct the federal government to restore the program to its fullest.

There is still a lawsuit the Biden administration will have to fight. The lawsuit challenging DACA’s legality was filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

In total, President Biden will sign 17 executive actions that will roll back several issues created by the previous administration.

“Today, hours after taking the oath of office, President-elect Biden will take a historic number of actions to deliver immediate relief for families across America that are struggling in the face of converging crises. He will sign a combination of executive orders, memoranda, directives, and letters to take initial steps to address these crises, including by changing the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, providing economic relief, tackling climate change, and advancing racial equity,” reads a statement from the Biden-Harris Transition Team. “President-elect Biden will take action — not just to reverse the gravest damages of the Trump administration — but also to start moving our country forward. These actions are bold, begin the work of following through on President-elect Biden’s promises to the American people, and, importantly, fall within the constitutional role for the president.”
