Kellyanne Conway To Leave White House At End Of Month Over Family Issues
Kellyanne Conway is out at the White House. She will be leaving at the end of the month. She is leaving to focus on family and this is one of the rare cases where that is true.
Her daughter has become a social media star and said today she wanted to be emancipated.
“We disagree about plenty,” Kellyanne wrote of her and her husband in a statement obtained by the Washington Post, “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,” she wrote.
“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 added: “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.”
From The Washington Post:
Conway, whose title is counselor to the president, 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 informed Trump of her decision Sunday night in the Oval Office.
Her husband George T. Conway III, a conservative lawyer and outspoken critic of the president, is also stepping 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.

God Bless You All.
So I’m withdrawing from @ProjectLincoln to devote more time to family matters. And I’ll be taking a Twitter hiatus.— George Conway (@gtconway3d) August 24, 2020
Needless to say, I continue to support the Lincoln Project and its mission. Passionately.
