News broke moments ago that the daughter of former counselor to President Trump, Kellyanne Conway reports that her mother, too, has tested positive for Covid-19.
UPDATE: Kellyanne Conway now CONFIRMS she has tested positive for the China flu Covid-19 coronavirus.
Tonight I tested positive for COVID-19. My symptoms are mild (light cough) and I’m feeling fine. I have begun a quarantine process in consultation with physicians.
As always, my heart is with everyone affected by this global pandemic.

Original post below:
Daughter, Claudia, posted in a video on TikTok that her mother has the China virus and that she’s furious about it. You may know her daughter is notoriously anti-Trump, so be prepared for that (and foul language) in the clip.

NEW: Kellyanne Conway’s daughter just posted on social media that her mom has #COVID. The two of them do not get along and she was posting earlier today that Kellyanne was coughing around the house. No official announcement one way or the other yet. pic.twitter.com/MQSRzVFSHb

News outlets across the country have added Conway’s name to the list of officials who have tested positive.

Earlier in the evening Claudia revealed that her mother is “coughing all around the house” and that she herself likewise has symptoms.
As a counterpoint, at the time of this post the news had been out for about a half hour, and George Conway, Kellyanne’s husband, was posting on Twitter less than two minutes ago (at the time of this post) without mentioning any positive test. But we’ll see what they say officially soon enough.
This is a developing story.
