An Expert's Breakdown Of Kellyanne Conway's Body Language At The RNC

President Donald Trump's right-hand woman, pundit and political consultant Kellyanne Conway, has been in the news for weeks prior to the Republican National Convention. Between her interesting relationship with her husband, George Conway III — who has multiple disputes with the president — and her 15-year-old daughter publicly denouncing her mother on TikTok, Kellyanne has a lot on her plate. However, one of Kellyanne's final duties before vacating her position at the White House was to represent Trump at the Republican National Convention. 

"A woman in a leadership role can still seem novel," Conway said during the RNC. "Not so for President Trump. For decades he has elevated women to senior positions." Though the RNC reportedly marks her final public political appearance, Kellyanne seemed poised and dignified, but was she truly? A body expert spoke exclusively to The List to provide an in-depth look into what the so-called "ultimate woman for Trump" was really telling the world.

Kellyanne Conway's RNC demeanor was not her norm

Human behavior and body language expert Mark Bowden told The List that Kellyanne Conway was difficult to read during the Republican National Convention. Bowden called her "an experienced presenter who has dealt [with] more extreme pressures," noting that she showed "very little leaking of any underlying intentions, thoughts, and feelings through body language" while speaking at the high-profile event. 

Bowden noted that Conway was much more relaxed and subdued during the RNC than in previous public appearances. She normally uses her hands to speak but kept her "hands and arms down by the side," during the convention, portraying a "less powerful and physically communicative" demeanor. 

Though Conway held "strong eye contact and a low blink rate," her "relaxed confidence" was much less aggressive than the vibe she has portrayed in the past. It's possible the pundit wanted to leave the White House on a more peaceful, positive note. Bowden said he noticed "very little enjoyment in this role that lacks the cut and thrust she has become legendary for." 

Is the political counselor ready to leave the White House or actually sad about the transition? Americans will have to wait and see what she does next in her career.
