Donald Trump’s recent Twitter beef with model Chrissy Teigen might be the most heated one yet.
According to CNN, the quarrel started when Trump started venting about a town hall on criminal justice reform that aired on MSNBC Sunday night, tweeted that he and other Republicans should be getting more credit for signing the First Step Act into law.
“I SIGNED IT INTO LAW, no one else did, and 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 late Sunday night.
He then went after the singer and activist John Legend (who appeared in the MSNBC town hall) and his wife Chrissy Teigen.
“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,” the President wrote.
If you follow Teigen on social media, you might be familiar with her “unique” responses to certain situations—and this time was no different.
“(L)ol what a p**** a** b****. tagged everyone but me. an honor, mister president,” she tweeted.
By Monday morning, Chrissy Teigen, #TeamChrissy and #filthymouthedwife were all trending on Twitter.
Legend criticized the President, too — without the profanity — by tweeting, “Imagine being president of a whole country and spending your Sunday night hate-watching MSNBC hoping somebody—ANYBODY—will praise you.”
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.

Anthony Scaramucci, Trump’s former communications director who has now disavowed the President, on Monday called the spat between Trump and the celebrity couple “despicable.”
Have any of the other presidents in recent history—modern history—gone after their private citizens whether they’re celebrities or not celebrities?” Scaramucci told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on “New Day.” “(For) the last two and a half years this guy has acted like a bully, crazy person against his fellow citizens.”
Trump is making a habit of twitter beefing with folks over the weekend and so far he’s been losing.
