The responses were Legend.
President Trump was called a “p—y ass bitch” by Chrissy Teigen and others after taking on “boring” singer John Legend and his “filthy-mouthed” wife, Teigen, on Sunday night.
It began when Trump complained in a series of tweets about the lack of credit he received for the First Step Act, which aims to help prison inmates transition back into society. He signed the bill into law in December.
“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,” Trump wrote late Sunday. “I got it done with a group of Senators & others who would never have gone for it. Obama couldn’t come close.”
He appeared to be upset with the “credit” that Legend was taking in an interview the singer did with Lester Holt that aired Sunday night. He expressed dismay even though NBC News did air footage of Trump signing the bill.
“Guys like boring 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,” Trump wrote in two tweets to his 64 million followers. “’Anchor’ @LesterHoltNBC doesn’t even bring up the subject of President Trump or the Republicans when talking about the importance or passage of Criminal Justice Reform.”
Teigen, the supermodel and TV personality who has 11.5 million Twitter followers, predictably did not stay silent.
“lol what a p—y ass bitch. tagged everyone but me. an honor, mister president,” she wrote.
The Twitter spat would not die quietly. Teigen, Legend, and others implored people not to let “#PresidentP—yAssBitch” become a trending topic.
“no guys no please do not make this trend, for it is my fight with #PresidentPussyAssBitch, not yours!!!!!!” Teigen wrote.
It did not stop there. Legend encouraged First Lady Melania Trump to “praise” her husband, but then retweeted a photo of Melania standing close to Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
“Ah yes, Melania is otherwise occupied. My apologies, @realDonaldTrump,” wrote Legend, who has 13 million followers.
