Kellyanne Conway posts child p0rn

https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article...-a-nude-of-her

Kellyanne Conway's Twitter Account Posted A Nude Photo Of Her Underage Daughter Claudia.

I'd try and precis the story but it's basically a whole neverending stream of what the hell.

Combined with the ****** up video she posted of her and her mothers arguments, I'd say she needs to get out of that house quickly.

WTF. When I saw the title and description I was sure it'd be of some little kid, like one or two years old, and it'd be one of those innocuous photos parents can take of their kids bathing or showering, and since we're in 2021 it's digital, and so it could be accidentally uploaded to the Internet. It's what Occam's razor led me to, anyway.

Then I read the whole article, and then I googled "claudia conway age". She's 16? And her mother got her hands on a photo of her nude in the shower which she uploaded, deliberately or not, to the web?

I suppose we'll never know, but I really would like to know what happened here.
Definitely sucks for Claudia, and also for her mother, at least if this was indeed an accident. The US has rather strict laws on these things.

The daughter has now posted an ISIS style propaganda video totally unforced apology video asking people to leave her mom alone.

At first I thought all the Conway family drama was just internet weirdos getting too involved in the life of a somewhat famous 16 year old girl, but I guess I was wrong. Seems like a seriously abusive home life.

Is Claudia Conway that girl who posted on Twitter that she wanted emancipation from her parents a while back?
Also, yes, gods am I glad she's approaching the age where she can move away from home. This must be terribly bad for her.

I'm glad she's approaching the age where she can move out, though by the sound of it she should get the **** out right now. Between the events themselves and the media attention she's getting, and now a leaked nude photo, this must be terrible for her.

I think (though I don't really know) that this may have been some sort of selfie that the daughter took and had on her own phone. Then the mother confiscated the phone and at the same time copied the photo. Then after that, who knows, actually the whole "posted by accident to Twitter" seems really unlikely, but I'm very Twitter-stupid and couldn't even post a photo to it on purpose, so maybe it's easier than I think and it really did happen that way.

Based on my very limited understanding of the law, emancipation is not a viable path for her. It's not enough to just show that her parents are abusive, she would have to show that she is able to take care of herself, which is generally not the case for most 16 year olds.

Emancipation is usually something for wealthy child pop-stars or actors or whatever that have compelling income streams that can convince a judge that a child isn't being thrown into poverty through parental abandonment.

This is more something for CPS to take interest in. Even if she were removed from the home, emancipation is not a likely outcome.

I suppose it's possible to want to upload a photo and pick the wrong one by mistake. Though, how she wouldn't instantly notice and delete it is beyond me. Whenever I upload anything to the Web I make 100% sure it's what I wanted to upload. Someone like Kellyanne Conway would know this even better than myself. I suppose an "oh, I was drop dead tired and not paying attention to what I was doing" covfefe episode-type incident is possible, but... even then, I agree it's very strange that she should have, and hold onto, a photo like that in the first place.

The only (non-weird) reason I can think of is it was some sort of evidence thing...

Mother finds nude pic, decides "her father needs to know what daughter is doing", makes copy so that he will believe the mother.

(Although it would also seem rather dysfunctional if the father wouldn't believe the mother without such evidence.)

I, too, assumed the thread title would be a wild exaggeration and would involve an infant or toddler.


The police should investigate, of course.

I'm fairly confident, though, that KellyAnne Conway did not knowingly post a picture of her naked daughter to her own twitter account. Of all the possible explanations for what happened, that one is the least likely to me.

So, what does that leave? Hacking? Daughter grabs phone and deliberately posts something to get her mom into trouble, probably not realizing exactly how much trouble was involved? Daughter has gotten mom's password, and posts from her own phone? Mom posts the wrong pic by accident?

KellyAnne is actually insane? That can't be ruled out, but it would have to be truly insane, not just a bit stressed out or irrational. A sane person would not do such a thing on purpose. In order for the Conway to be actually responsible for that photo being posted, she would have to deliberately put an obviously illegal photo on the internet, in a way that capture would be inevitable.

I thought of one more possibility. KellyAnne felt that her daughter was doing harmful and self-destructive things, and that only drastic action would make her realize the import of her daughter's actions. That would be a lot like being insane, but not quite.

I guess we'll see what shows up, though. My initial guess is that the daughter is responsible for that selfie ending up on twitter, but perhaps an investigation will bring something else to light.

Curious, I checked google news.

Nothing. Nothing at all. I began to wonder if the incident even happened at all.

Then it occurred to me to check Drudge Report. Ok.....there are the stories. No need for those pesky fact checkers over at Drudge.

This is most likely.

She seems to have responded to several comments on tik tok, one in morse code (!), before even checking to see if it was true or checking with her mom, etc... Then she guessed 'how' it probably happened.

Still, it is a cry for help from a young girl. I think a total break from social media is a good idea for all of them.

A quick google search found that it was reported in Variety and The Huffington Post (among others). And this is of course in addition to BuzzfeedNews from the opening post.

So something seems to have happened.

Yeah. Everyone knows the correct spelling is pR0n. And the correct spelling of "tweet" is apparently "fleet", according to the linked article.

What a grim story.

So, according to the Buzzfeed article, the photo was of her daughter topless? And she was 16 or under at the time of the photograph.

Yeah, that is ****** up.

The QAnon folks are all about protecting children, so I'm sure they're concerned.

Minor point: From what I understand, 'fleet' is some sort of new feature from Twitter, where a tweet will delete itself automatically after a day.

You're kidding, right? Kellyanne's (that one) clashes with her daughter have been widely reported for a long time.

At first I thought all the Conway family drama was just internet weirdos getting too involved in the life of a somewhat famous 16 year old girl, but I guess I was wrong. Seems like a seriously abusive home life.
Those are not mutually exclusive. I don't know if it's some sort of whacked-out troll by the entire family or emotional abuse or what. I just know it's something I have steered clear of and that seems to have been a good decision.

I'd try and precis the story but it's basically a whole neverending stream of what the hell.
I'm more shocked by the daughter's face. She's sixteen years old? That family does not age well.

Could someone please explain to my how any good Democrat (like her husband, George) could ever bring himself to crawl between the legs of a witch like her?

He's not a Democrat. He's a Lincoln Project Republican. And maybe they stay together for the sake of the daughter.

Note that he's also a member of the right-wing Federalist Society who represented Paula Jones against Bill Clinton. Being anti-Trump doesn't make him a liberal. And they have four kids.
