Kellyanne Conway's daughter, 15, reveals on TikTok that her mom has tested positive for coronavirus and says 'Wear your masks. Don't listen to our idiot f*****g president'

 President Donald Trump's former adviser Kellyanne Conway has tested positive for the coronavirus.

The news was first revealed by her teenage daughter Claudia in a TikTok video but Conway later took to Twitter to confirm.    

It comes days after Conway attended a White House event that is now linked to at least seven other COVID-19 cases, including President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump.  

Conway tweeted Friday that she has a 'light cough' and is 'feeling fine'.

'I have begun a quarantine process in consultation with physicians,' she added.

'As always, my heart is with everyone affected by this global pandemic'. 

Conway, 53, said that previous tests she had taken were all negative.  

Her 15-year-old daughter Claudia began to speculate that the former White House adviser may have been infected in a string of videos posted to TikTok on Friday evening. 


'My mom coughing all around the house after Trump tested positive for COVID,' she wrote on the first video as she lip-synced the lines 'that's weird, that's suspicious'. 

'When my lungs hurt and it's hard for me to breathe,' she wrote on the next, revealing that she was also experiencing coronavirus symptoms. 

She later posted a singing video before returning to Trump and his positive coronavirus test. 

'I don't wish ill on anybody but ... the irony,' she said.

'I hope the Lysol cures him,' Claudia added as she played a line from Tuesday's debate in which Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden tells Trump 'you're the worst president America has ever had'. 

In her next video, Claudia confirmed her mother's positive test as she sat with a mask on. 'Bye I’m done, I’ll see you all in two weeks,' she wrote in the caption. 

'I'm furious. Wear your masks. Don't listen to our idiot f*****g president piece of s**t. Protect yourself and those around you,' she added. 

The teenager is a vocal critic of the president despite her mom's previous prominent role in his administration. Claudia became a viral star on TikTok after she began to criticize the White House and her family's involvement. 

In one of her latest videos, she urged people to go out and vote. 

'If you will be eligible to vote by November 3 and you haven't registered to vote already, please, please, please register,' she said. 

'It's super important to exercise your right that you have as an American in this country. Please vote.' 

Kellyanne Conway attended the Rose Garden announcement Saturday where President Donald Trump announced his nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.  

At least seven people who were in attendance have now tested positive: President Trump, the first lady, a senior White House aide, two Republican senators who sit on the judiciary committee, Conway, and the head of the University of Notre Dame.

Three White House reporters also tested positive Friday as the White House National Security Council ordered all staff to begin wearing masks in White House common areas and to 'avoid unnecessary visits' to the West Wing. 

Mask use on the White House grounds has mostly been lax, with Trump often having questioned and sometimes ridiculed their use despite medical experts´ insistence the practice saves lives. 

The president was admitted to Walter Reed Military Medical Center Friday evening as an advisor told CNN that he had 'trouble breathing'.

The White House confirmed that he would stay there for a 'few days' and continue to work from the presidential suite. They added he would not be handing over power to Vice President Mike Pence, despite his hospitalization.   

Pence is among those who have tested negative Friday, as well as Trump's nominee Barrett who had coronavirus over the summer.

Conway had recently stepped aside from her role in the Trump White House after her daughter's sudden viral fame.

The 53-year-old counselor to the president said she was leaving for the sake of her family, to be 'less drama, more mama'. 

It came after Claudia said she was 'officially pushing for emancipation' from her parents in a series of tweets. 

Claudia's father, an attorney, is one of President Donald Trump's most vocal and pointed critics. 

He also stepped back from his role on the Lincoln Project, an outside group of Republicans devoted to defeating Trump in November. He will also take a hiatus from Twitter, the venue he has often used to attack the president. 

He returned on Friday night, however, as he blasted the White House for holding the maskless Rose Garden even attended by his wife. 

'I'm livid,' he wrote as he shared pictures from the event. 

'Utterly moronic understates it. No responsible organization run by intelligent and competent people would hold an event like this in America today,' he added.

In a statement, Conway called her time in the Trump administration 'heady' and 'humbling,' and said she and George were making the decision based on what they think is best for their four children. 

'We disagree about plenty,' she wrote of her and her husband, 'but we are united on what matters most: the kids. 

'Our four children are teens and 'tweens starting a new academic year in the middle school and high school that will be conducted remotely from home for a least a few months. As millions of parents nationwide know, kids 'doing school from home' requires a level of attention and vigilance that is as unusual as these times.'

Conway continued: 'This is completely my choice and my voice. In time, I will announce future plans. For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama.' 

Conway was among Trump's longest-serving advisers.

She was Trump's third campaign manager in 2016 and the first woman to successfully manage a presidential campaign to victory. 

She joined the White House at the start of Trump's term and has been one of his most visible and vocal defenders.

Conway, a veteran Republican pollster, has frequently been mocked for her unwavering defense of the president and his team.
