Kellyanne Conway seemingly resigned from the White House at just the right time, in light of the coronavirus outbreak that seems destined to affect large numbers of White House advisers. But as it turns out, Kellyanne attended the specific event that appears to have been the flashpoint for the White House outbreak – and now she’s reportedly sick.
Based on the rising number of confirmed coronavirus cases that are emerging from last Saturday’s White House Rose Garden event, it appears this was where the outbreak began. Kellyanne Conway attended that event. She sat directly behind Melania Trump, and almost directly in front of John Jenkins, both of whom have since tested positive. None of them were wearing masks at the time this photo was taken.
Now Claudia Conway is claiming on social media tonight that her mother Kellyanne is “coughing all around the house” and that “my mom has COVID.” We wish her well with her health. Update, 10:25pm: Kellyanne is now confirming she has coronavirus.
