  • Since October 2016, Conway has been satirized on Saturday Night Live, in which she is portrayed by Kate McKinnon.   In a January 2017 interview, Conway acknowledged the SNL parody by noting that, "Kate McKinnon clearly sees the road to the future runs through me and not Hillary."

  • While George has persistently condemned Trump on Twitter, Kellyanne has been one of the president’s most ardent defenders. The couple’s contrasting views have often become the subject of media attention.
  • “We disagree about plenty but we are united on what matters most: the kids ... 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,” Kellyanne Conway said in her statement.
  • The couple’s 15-year-old daughter, Claudia, said she was “devastated” that her mother would be speaking at the RNC. In a flurry of tweets criticizing her parents, she also said she and her father “agree on absolutely nothing” politically, before announcing she would be taking a mental health break from social media.
