Trump Just Lashed Out at John Legend and His ‘Filthy Mouthed Wife’ Chrissy Teigen

Donald Trump went on another Twitter tirade Sunday night in which he called out singer John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen for his appearance NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt.

In a series of four angry tweets Trump said, “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. I got it done with a group of Senators & others who would never have gone for it. Obama couldn’t come close….

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.”

In the news special, Grammy Award winner Legend spoke to Lester Holt about the country’s “broken criminal justice system,” and encouraged viewers to get involved with Free America, the campaign he started to help make a difference.

Legend visits prisons and speaks to those incarcerated and explained, “I want to hear from them and communicate their concerns. They are pretty far out of our urban centers, out of sight and out of mind for most Americans, and don’t get heard from very often. I like to go and just listen and learn spread the message of reform.”

Legend’s Free America campaign started in 2014, years before Trump was President. The 40-year-old, who shares two children with wife Chrissy, 33, who’s a best-selling author, model, and TV host, has been striving to make a difference to the criminal justice for reasons that go beyond Trump and his policies.

John Legend responded on Twitter, and pretty much said what we are all thinking:

Chrissy Teigen also responded on Twitter and pretty much nailed it:
