    Chrissy Teigen Explained What She And John Legend Did During Their Fight With Donald Trump

    "My eyes filled up with water."

    In case you missed it, President Donald Trump called John Legend "boring" and referred to Chrissy Teigen as John's "filthy-mouthed wife" in a string of tweets about criminal justice reform Sunday night.

    ....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.....

    ....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....

    John Legend reacted by calling on Melania, saying that Trump "needs 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.

    And Chrissy reacted with this tweet:

    lol what a pussy ass bitch. tagged everyone but me. an honor, mister president.

    Chrissy also went on Ellen on Wednesday to discuss the situation.

    .@ChrissyTeigen told me about her Twitter feud with the President of the United States of America.

    Chrissy said someone sent her a screenshot of Trump's tweets because she was already blocked and couldn't see. But once she saw, she said, "My heart stopped because at that moment, you know you're about to get the wildest group of people ever."

    "He called John a 'boring musician,' and [me] his 'filthy-mouthed wife,' which — those two things are true," she said jokingly.

    "Your whole night is ruined — we spent the entire rest of the night just sitting next to each other handing each other our phones," Chrissy said. The two workshopped tweets and responses, debating how to reply.

    Chrissy's hashtag about Trump trended on Twitter, and many people rallied around the star:

    I’m very, very serious. Very serious. Do NOT allow #PresidentPussyAssBitch to trend. I’m begging you. Begging. #PresidentPussyAssBitch

    .@ChrissyTeigen told me about her Twitter feud with the President of the United States of America.

    Chrissy said at first she was upset about the whole situation.

    But now that things have calmed down, she's learned to laugh about it.

    I mean, what else can you do? Especially when you're Chrissy. Here's to a more peaceful Twittersphere for the rest of September.
