Chrissy Teigen is a mom, a supermodel, the co-host of Lip Sync Battle and wife of a superstar performer, John Legend. If that’s not busy enough, she also tussles with the president and effortlessly launches trending topics on social media. It’s all in a week’s work.
In a preview clip ahead of her appearance on Ellen, the outspoken celebrity talks Ellen DeGeneres through the experience of being called a “filthy mouthed wife” by Donald Trump.
Ellen unpacks the situation for her audience. “The president of the United States picked a fight with you on Twitter…you said something that we can’t say. You are strong in many, many ways Chrissy. And I admire you.”
Teigen admits, “It’s been a week.”
And what a week. On Sunday, Trump put Legend on blast by calling him “boring,” but he didn’t name Teigen in his tweet, referring to her only as the EGOT star’s “filthy mouthed wife.” Not great.
Teigen fired back by referring to Trump as “the pussy ass bitch president.” The NSFW nickname was too rude to trend on the social platform, though wise tweeters found a work-around by shortening it to #PresidentPAB. And, boom, it trended. It’s been a week, alright.
The full chat on Ellen airs Wednesday. See the teaser below.
oh I love you forever and always, ellen https://t.co/OYM9mB2cQB
