President Trump Trolls John Legend, Chrissy Teigen on Twitter, and gets a vulgar response
President Trump took to Twitter and slammed ‘filthy mouthed’ Chrissy Teigen and ‘boring’ John Legend for ‘stealing all his credit’ for Trump’s new criminal justice reforms. I’m not sure he was ready for their response- it was borderline criminal.
Trump blasted Legend and his wife “for talking now about how great” the reform is, but not playing a role when it mattered. Trump signed the First Step Act into law last year that reduces mandatory minimum sentences in certain instances and gives judges more discretion. More than 3,100 inmates will be released under the act, which has been praised by both Republicans and Democrats.
Legend responded to Trump’s tweet by appealing to the first lady.
“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,” he tweeted. A minute later he tweeted, “Your country needs you, Melania.”
….A man named @VanJones68, and many others, were profusely grateful (at that time!). 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. Guys like boring…..

The news channel was airing “Justice For All,” a special on mass incarceration in the country and Legend was interviewed during the broadcast.
Teigen called the president a “p***y a** b***h” for tagging “everyone” but her in his tweet. Legend, in a tongue-in-cheek appeal, requested that followers not to retweet the vulgar comment as a hashtag.
Legend, 40, and his wife have been fierce critics of the president. The Grammy winner called Trump a “piece of s***” and a canker sore on the country after the president’s criticism of Baltimore.
In an interview with USA Today, Teigen said, “I’ve actually been a big Donald Trump hater [for a long time]. I’ve been trolling him for about five to seven years now,” she said. “I’ve been doing this forever, and I take pride in that.”
The Cravings cookbook author then uploaded a photo of herself sitting on the floor of her living room, making a personalized sign for her 3-year-old daughter Luna’s second year of preschool.
“Luna, remember the night before your first day of school?” she wroteOpens a New Window.. “When mommy was making your sign and the p–sy ass bitch president had his 9th meltdown of the day.”

She addedOpens a New Window., “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.”
Trump talked about criminal justice reform and how President “Obama couldn’t come close” to passing meaningful law. The president said he is tired of “boring musician John Legend” and his wife for touting the bill.
