President of the US, Donald Trump late Sunday called out celebrities for not acknowledging his efforts in criminal justice reforms. POTUS targeted “boring singer” John Legend and his “filthy mouthed wife” Chrissy Teigen for taking credit for the reforms, leading to a war of words on Twitter.
President Trump made the comments on Twitter after John Legend appeared on MSNBC as part of a special town hall on criminal justice reforms hosted by NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt.
“When all of the people pushing so hard for Criminal Justice Reform were unable to come even close to getting it done, they came to me as a group and asked for my help. I got it done with a group of Senators & others who would never have gone for it. Obama couldn’t come close. I SIGNED IT INTO LAW, no one else did, & Republicans deserve much credit. But now that it is passed, people that had virtually nothing to do with it are taking the praise,” Trump wrote in a series of tweets.
Trump called out the couple and said how they weren’t around when the country needed them to get the criminal justice reform passed, Fox News reports.
Model Chrissy Teigen in response fired back at the President on Twitter. She tweeted: “lol what a pu**y a** b**ch. tagged everyone but me. an honor, mister president.”
Teigen didn’t stop there and tweeted a snapshot of herself making a chalkboard sign celebrating the start of her daughter Luna’s second year of preschool, taking another swipe at Trump.
“Luna, remember the night before your first day of school? When mommy was making your sign and the p***y a** b***h president had his 9th meltdown of the day?” Teigen captioned the picture.
Teigen posted another tweet saying she is “crackling at the pointless addition” of her by Trump in the entire episode.
Teigen’s husband Legend took a dig at him while making a plea to the US first lady Melania Trump via Twitter.
This is not the first time that Legend and Teigen have lashed out at Trump. Teigen, an outspoken opponent of Trump, was blocked by him on Twitter more than two years ago.
