When the gloves come off, the gloves come off.
President Donald Trump and model and TV personality Chrissy Teigen have battled on Twitter in the past, but this time, things got real filthy and the interwebs went nuts.
According to CNN, this round apparent started because the president was miffed Republicans were not given more credit during a MSNBC town hall on criminal justice for signing the First Step Act into law.
Among other things, the act gives judges more discretion when sentencing some drug offenders, eases mandatory minimum sentences and encourages inmates to participate in programs designed to reduce the risk of recidivism, with credits that can be used to gain an earlier release.
WARNING: Profane language is used in the tweet embedded or mentioned below.
Trump took at shot at Teigen and her husband John Legend, a Springfield native.
The couple appeared in the town hall.
Teigen fired back filthily.
Legend’s words were significantly less filthy than his wife’s.
This is far from the first time #TeamTrump and #TeamChrissy have squared off.
Trump had even previously blocked Teigen on Twitter.
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in July that Trump could not block a critic to silence a viewpoint.
