After working on his 2016 campaign, Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway was offered a White House job by President Donald Trump.

Since then, Conway has become one of the most familiar faces of the Trump administration, readily doling out talking points to justify policies and falsehoods put forth by the White House. To many Trump critics, Conway's work for the President has played an insidious role in normalizing the chaos and cruelty occurring during Trump's tenure as President.

Like numerous other Trump officials have done before her, Conway announced on Sunday that she would be leaving the White House.

Conway cited a need to focus on her family in a statement:

"I will be transitioning from the White House at the end of this month. George is also making changes. We disagree about plenty but we are united on what matters most: the kids. Our four children are teens and 'tweens starting a new academic year, in middle school and high school, remotely from home for at 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's announcement comes at a time of much speculation regarding the dynamics of the Conway family. Her husband, Conservative lawyer George Conway, is a vocal opponent of the President and one of the founders of the anti-Trump PAC, the Lincoln Project.

Conway's 15 year old daughter, Claudia Conway, went viral this past summer for a series of TikToks decrying the administration employing her mother.

The day before Kellyanne Conway's announcement, Claudia Conway fired off a series of tweets claiming her mother's job had "ruined her life" and that she was working toward familial emancipation.

In a later tweet, Claudia Conway announced that she'd be taking a break from social media.

George Conway also announced that he'd be withdrawing from the Lincoln Project.

The dynamics and timing of Kellyanne Conway's announcement only added more fuel to speculation about the Conway family.

Regardless of the impetus of Kellyanne Conway's departure, people were happy to see her go.

Some predict that Kellyanne will become yet another ally-turned-critic of the President.
