Chrissy Teigen says 'my heart stopped' when Donald Trump lashed out at her and admits she does have a 'filthy mouth'
Chrissy Teigen, on Wednesday, September 11, opened up about Donald Trump's latest attack on her and her husband, singer John Legend, on Twitter, saying that her "heart stopped" at the moment. She added that the president was right about at least one thing: she does have a "filthy mouth".
"My heart stopped because at that moment you know you're about to get just the wildest group of people ever," the model said in a preview clip from an appearance on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show'.
Trump had slammed the celebrity couple for failing to acknowledge his support of criminal justice reform. He had seemingly taken offense to a segment on Lester Holt's 'NBC Nightly News' that saw the EGOT-winning singer Legend speak about FREEAMERICA, an organization that raises awareness on criminal justice reform.
"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," he wrote. "I got it done with a group of Senators and others who would never have gone for it. Obama couldn't come close."
He continued "...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 the importance or passage of Criminal Justice Reform."
The 40-year-old Legend responded to Trump's attack, writing: "Melania, please praise this man. He needs you." Meanwhile, Teigen, addressing her young daughter, wrote: "Luna, remember the night before your first day of school? When mommy was making your sign and the p**** a** b**** president had his 9th meltdown of the day."
The model added: "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 b****."
Hours after the model's tweets began trending on social media, she wrote another one to her followers, saying: "No guys no please do not make this trend, for it is my fight with #PresidentP****A**B****, not yours!!!!!!"
Both Teigen and Legend are outspoken critics of the President, with Legend calling Trump a "flaming racist" earlier this year for describing Baltimore as a "rodent-infested mess". Trump had made the remark while attacking one of his notable critics, Baltimore lawmaker Rep. Elijah Cummings.
Meanwhile, Chrissy received a lot of support from her celeb friends, including Meghan McCain, who expressed her support with the tweet, "Since when is there something wrong with being a filthy-mouthed wife?" She ended her tweet with hashtag "#teamchrissy".
