President Trump Will Rue the Day He Started a Twitter Fight With Chrissy Teigen
President Donald Trump picked the wrong battle on Sunday night when he decided to come after model and national treasure, Chrissy Teigen.
It all started when Trump tweeted a thread about how he felt that people who “had virtually nothing to do with” with the passage of the First Step Act, a criminal justice reform bill he signed into law in 2018, were “taking the praise.” Trump was referring to a special town hall that NBC anchor Lester Holt held on MSNBC Sunday night about the criminal justice system. On the show, Holt featured John Legend, who has been working on the issue of mass incarceration with his campaign FREEAMERICA.
In his rant, Trump said, “musician @johnlegend, and his filthy mouthed wife, are talking now about how great it is – but I didn’t see them around when we needed help getting it passed.”
Then Teigen, who clearly saw Trump’s tweets and has no fear, responded with: “lol what a pussy ass bitch. tagged everyone but me. an honor, mister president.” She then continued, “the absolute best part of his tweet is I literally didn’t speak in the special, nor was I mentioned. I’m cackling at the pointless addition of me because he cannot not be a bitch”
And the internet promptly took notice:
Legend also responded to the president’s attack against him and his wife by tweeting, “Imagine being president of a whole country and spending your Sunday night hate-watching MSNBC hoping somebody–ANYBODY–will praise you. Melania, please praise this man. He needs you.”
While Trump tweeted that Holt didn’t “bring up the subject of President Trump or the Republicans when talking about… the importance or passage of Criminal Justice Reform”, The Daily Beast points out that Holt did give Trump credit for the bill during the Dateline episode that aired before the town hall. During that episode, he said the law is “projected to reduce the sentences of thousands of non-violent offenders in federal prisons” but noted that that bill “doesn’t affect more than 90 percent of the U.S. prison population, which is locked up in state and local facilities.”
