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.

Latinos For Trump Posted A Collage Of Flag For Hispanic Heritage Month And Got Some Wrong

Latinos For Trump Posted A Collage Of Flag For Hispanic Heritage Month And Got Some Wrong

Latinos for Trump has long been a confusing organization in the Latino community. President Donald Trump has built his administration and brand to be squarely against people of color. Now, the Latinos for Trump group caused a stir when they posted a collage of flags that are not quite right.

Latinos for Trump really thought they had something when they posted their Hispanic Heritage Month collage.

The first, and most obvious mistake, is that the Mexican flag is backwards. The flag is supposed to be green, white, and red in that order. As we can all see, the collage has a Mexican flag that is red, white, and green. The eagle is even facing the wrong way so someone literally flipped the flag the wrong way.

Of course, some people tried to make sense of the bizarre Mexican flag snafu.

Last year, the Trump administration announced that it was cutting aid to three countries in Central America. The countries were El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. Fox & Friends picked up the story but told their audience that Trump was cutting aid to “3 Mexican countries.” Perhaps this Twitter user is right and the Latinos for Trump are trying to suggest the existence of other Mexicos.

Someone else pointed out the issues with the Guatemalan flag in the top right corner.

People are very defensive about their cultural heritage and national origin. Messing up someone’s flag is a very serious issue for people. Just ask a Cuban or Puerto Rican about people confusing their flags. It is never a good thing.

Some people fixed the image for them so the organization can see what it should have looked like.

Good, clean lines with all of the flags facing the right way. The creator even changed the message in the middle for the Latino community. It is clear that social media is still willing to show up and teach a couple of lessons here and there.

Others had a more direct message for Latinos for Trump.

We all know that social media is where things go to be manipulated and made fun of. It is very important that if you make something for social media that you take good care to make sure that you check all of the right boxes and execute your work right the first time.

Latinas Share Why They Wanted To Teach Their Children Their Native Language

Latinas Share Why They Wanted To Teach Their Children Their Native Language

In a world with so much rising intersectionality and access to language tools, many still feel that passing along the traditions of their languages is necessary. Studies have shown for decades that children who grow up in an environment where they’re exposed to different languages have a pathway ahead of them that is full of promise. Particularly when it comes to education and career opportunities.

But why else do some parents find it essential to teach their children their family’s native languages?

Recently, we asked Latinas why learning their native language is important to them.

Check out the answer below!

“So they can be a voice for others in their community .” –_saryna_


“Besides the fact that bilingual kids use more of their brains. I’d like to teach my baby my native language so they can feel closer to our roots and be able to communicate/connect with our community not just in the US, but in Latin America too.” –shidume

“So that when the opportunity arises they can pursue their endeavors with nothing holding them back!” –candymtz13


“It not only helps them be multilingual, but also reminded them of their ancestry. Their roots. It builds a certain connection that cannot be broken.”-yeimi_herc


“So they can communicate with their grandparents, so they have double the opportunities growing up so they know their roots. So many reasons.”
elizabethm_herrera

“Know where you came from, being bilingual for more job opportunities later, being able to communicate with family members.”- panabori25

“I don’t have children but I think a language is tied to the culture. For me Spanish is a direct representation of how romantic and dramatic and over the top in the most beautiful way latin culture is. Also I’m Dominican and we just blend and make up words which really represents how crazy my family is.” –karenmarie15


“If I don’t and they lose ties to their people meaning my family who only speaks Spanish and Italian than I myself am harming them. As a preschool teacher I always tell parents English will happen eventually that’s the universal language but teach them their home home language the one that grandma/pa and the rest of the family speaks. They lose their identity. Sure they make up their own eventually but they must never forget where they come from.” –ta_ta1009


“So he doesn’t lose the connection to his grandmother and great grandfather who only speak spanish. So if he ever hears someone struggling to communicate he can help and feel a sense of pride in his roots/culture. 🇸🇻 plus 🤞🤞 I want him to pick up a 3rd language too!” –cardcrafted

“To give them more opportunities in life. I feel that some stories can only be told with authenticity when they’re in their native language. If you have the opportunity to do so, please do.” –titanyashigh
