Things That Matter

From That Cardi B ‘WAP’ Ringtone To Her Daughter’s Claims Of Abuse — A Brief Timeline Of The Public Dumpster Fire That Is Kellyanne Conway’s Life

Updated January 25, 2021.

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.

October 2020: Claudia reveals her mother tested positive for COVID-19.

After attending a party hosted by former President Trump, Kellyanne tested positive for Covid-19.

January 19: Claudia posts a series of videos appearing to show Kellyanne being abusive.

The day before President Joe Biden’s inauguration, Claudia posted a series of videos appearing to show her mother cursing belittling, and possibly physically abusing her daughter. In the posted video it appeared that Kellyanne spoke to Claudia saying “Fuck you!” “Bitch.” “If you only knew what people thought of you.”

She Moved Up The Ranks From Janitor To Nurse Practitioner, Now She’s Viral


She Moved Up The Ranks From Janitor To Nurse Practitioner, Now She’s Viral

Talk about a dream fulfilled.

For ten years, Jaines Andrades harbored her desire to move up from her custodial position at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Massachusetts to nurse. Now, ten years later, as an RN she’s excelled well past her drams.

Andrades worked her way through nursing school while working at Baystate Medical in Springfield, Massachusetts, as a janitor.

Ten years ago, Andrades accepted a position as a custodial staff member at Baystate Medical Center with big dreams of being a nurse. Born to Puerto Rican parents Andrades moved from her family home in Springfield, MA in 2005 when she was 14 years old. From there she and enrolled as a student at Putnam Technical-Vocational Academy with hopes of moving up the ranks as a nurse.

“As I got older and approached graduation I just didn’t see how a little girl like me could ever become a lawyer. I didn’t see it as something that was possible for me, so I got discouraged from the idea,” Andrades explained according to

That all changed after she struck up a conversation with a nurse during a doctor’s visit for her mother. According to Andrades, the nurse tipped her off on the benefits of nursing. “He told me about the program to become a nurse, and, the more he talked, I just thought, ‘Yeah, I can do this.’ It’s a respectable profession, and I could provide for myself financially, so the idea grew from there.”

Soon after she enrolled at Holyoke Community College, ticked off all of her pre-requisites and a handful of introductory nursing classes. Then, in 2010, she transferred to Elms College.

The same year she transferred, Andrades applied for a job in Baystate’s Environmental Services Department and became a custodian at the hospital.


“It’s tough to be the person that cleans. If I had to go back and do it again, I would. It’s so worth it,” Andrades explained in an interview with WBZ-TV.

In a Facebook post, Andrades wrote about her journey from hospital custodian to nurse practitioner and posted a picture of all three of her IDs.

Andrades’ story went viral after she shared her experience to Facebook.

Speaking about her journey from custodian to nurse practitioner, Andrades shared a picture of all three of her IDs.

“Even if it was cleaning, as long as I was near patient care I’d be able to observe things. I thought it was a good idea,” the RN explained in her interview before sharing that her favorite part of being a nurse has been her ability to provide patients with comfort. “I just really love the intimacy with people.”

“Nurses and providers, we get the credit more often but people in environmental and phlebotomy and dietary all of them have such a huge role. I couldn’t do my job without them,” she went onto explain. “I’m so appreciative and like in awe that my story can inspire people,” Andrades told WBZ-TV. “I’m so glad. If I can inspire anyone, that in itself made the journey worth it.”
