    Chrissy Teigen Not Understanding British Politics Is, Quite Frankly, All Of Us

    "I read and read and try and learn but my brain cannot grasp it."

    By now you must know about one of the funniest people on Twitter: Chrissy Teigen.

    She has increasingly been tweeting about British affairs, like the time she was in London and famously decided to live-tweet an episode of Naked Attraction.

    Now she's tweeting about British politics. Today, as the news broke that Theresa May will be facing a vote of no confidence, which could lead to another vote, and then another vote after that...

    BBC News

    ...Chrissy tweeted this deeply relatable statement.

    And many, many people were like, SAME.

    This GIF of Chrissy Teigen was then tweeted at Chrissy Teigen, summing up what the British think about this.

    @chrissyteigen in an incredible feat of timebending, your 2019 reaction to it already exists in gif form

    People also *tried* to explain it to her.

    @chrissyteigen Think of a plate of spaghetti. Only the plate is missing, it’s all over the table and someone is crying 🤦‍♀️

    The possible implications of what was to come were mentioned, and she came back with this.

    The process of how we choose a new leader, should May be voted out, then came up.

    And then this bizarre scene in parliament earlier this week was also discussed, when an MP walked away with a ceremonial mace in the middle of a heated debate.

    @chrissyteigen Have a read about how you can grab the mace (a big gold stick) mid-debate and really upset everyone by doing so. It’s so British, it hurts.

    The removal of the mace meant that debates technically could not continue. Chrissy was like:

    And now we know how the United Kingdom is perceived by the rest of the world.

    And people then started dropping their own facts.

    @chrissyteigen The best thing about British politics is the fact that the red lines on the floor are more than a sword’s width apart. They were literally put there to stop people from stabbing each other while debating.

    Dear @chrissyteigen you can learn all you need to know about British politics from this singular tweet

    Chrissy, please keep tweeting about this. We need this as a tonic to get through the rest of the day. Thank you.
