After a public fight last week with actress Debra Messing, it seems like President Trump enjoys Twitter fights with female celebrities . However, when you choose to do battle with Chrissy Teigen, it’s on! The President of the United States may have hoped for this outcome when he chose to say mean things about singer, songwriter and actor, John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen.
John and Chrissy have never been shy to share their dislike of the current President. However, on this occasion, they may have been baited, and Chrissy ate the bait. POTUS’ Twitter rant began after NBC’S Lester Holt Nightly, that featured actor John Legend’s work with his Foundation’s work in the area of criminal justice reform. Trump felt slighted.

The President tweeted,
“…..the importance or passage of Criminal Justice Reform. They only talk about the minor players, or people that had nothing to do with it…And the people that so desperately sought my help when everyone else had failed, all they talk about now is Impeaching President Trump!”
He went on to say,
“….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. “Anchor”@LesterHoltNBC doesn’t even bring up the subject of President Trump or the Republicans when talking about….”
….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…..

After this, it was on! Chrissy Teigen did not back down. Many people were confused about why he included Teigen in his harsh remarks as she was not a part of Holt’s special, nor was she mentioned.
She started calling the Trump, “PresidentPu$$y&ssbi$$h” and it began trending.
Teigen’s fans jumped in. Some tweeting,
“It’s just locker room talk.”
“Looks like someone grabbed you by thepu$$y.”
It seems to be a new era in American politics, when a sitting President can be engaged in a war of words with anyone he disagrees with. No one gets a pass with the Tweeter-In-Chief. To think that POTUS actually has the time to do this is baffling to many. One thing for sure though is, he seems to enjoy fighting with women publicly and calling them nasty names.
