The president was a bit peeved Sunday night (Sept. 8) while watching MSNBC’s criminal justice reform town hall. Hosted by Lester Holt featuring singer and activist John Legend and wife Chrissy Teigen, Trump let his Twitter fingers fly when he blasted the couple for receiving more praise than him and fellow Republicans for his First Step Act.
“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,” Trump tweeted.
Back in December, Trump signed the First Step Act, which allows thousands of federal inmates to be released earlier than they were originally sentenced and also reduces some mandatory minimum sentences. The measure was supported by both sides of the political aisle.
Trump continued lashing out by calling the Oscar winner boring and said Teigen was his “filthy mouthed-wife.” The 33-year-old entrepreneur responded in kind.
Legend also responded, sans the profanity.
Shortly after the responses from the couple, Chrissy Teigen, Foul-Mouthed Wife, and President P***y Ass B***h began trending.
Trump hasn’t responded to Teigen or Legend’s tweets, but if he does, we’ll let you know.
