However, Claudia’s uncle, New York Times writer Benjamin Moser, said that his niece was left overwhelmed by the amount of people at the reception before the Passover Seder.
‘She’s a very nice girl and not a brat or anything. She was just having a moment,’ he said.
He added that Claudia and her 6 year old brother Leo ‘grew up going to the White House’, because their father, Arun Chaudhary, was a videographer on Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and later became part of the president’s administration.
