Meghan McCain defends Chrissy Teigen after Trump calls her 'filthy-mouthed' in rant against John Legend
Trump had slammed the celebrity couple for failing to acknowledge his support of criminal justice reform
Meghan McCain, in a tweet on Sunday, September 8, expressed her support for Chrissy Teigen after President Donald Trump attacked the model, calling her "filthy-mouthed" and labelling her husband, singer John Legend, as "boring".
'The View' co-host, shortly after Trump's attack, tweeted: "Since when is there something wrong with being a filthy-mouthed wife?" She ended her tweet with hashtag "#teamchrissy".
Trump had slammed the celebrity couple for failing to acknowledge his support of criminal justice reform. He had seemingly taken offense at a segment on Lester Holt's 'NBC Nightly News' that saw the EGOT-winning singer Legend speak about FREEAMERICA, an organization that raised awareness about 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."
Since when is there something wrong with being a filthy mouthed wife? 😜 #teamchrissy— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) September 9, 2019
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."
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.— John Legend (@johnlegend) September 9, 2019
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.
