The daughter of Congressmember Louie Gohmert is speaking out about her father’s battle with COVID-19. The Texas Republican tested positive for the coronavirus last week, after he consistently refused to wear a mask in the U.S. Capitol, forcing several congressional colleagues to self-quarantine — including 72-year-old Arizona Democrat Raúl Grijalva, who later tested positive.
Caroline Gohmert tweeted a statement reading, “My father ignored medical expertise and now he has COVID. This has been a heartbreaking battle because I love my dad and don’t want him to die. Please listen to medical experts. It’s not worth following a president who has no remorse for leading his followers to an early grave.”
Meanwhile, the 15-year-old daughter of senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway has reemerged on social media. In July, 15-year-old Claudia Conway posted a TikTok video with the caption, “last video cuz my parents are making me delete all social media.” She has since reemerged online, making videos in support of Black Lives Matter and LGBTQ rights and mocking President Trump.
