Donald Trump Reportedly Asked Twitter To Remove A Mean Comment Chrissy Teigen Tweeted About Him In 2019
I don’t want you all making fun of me, but I logged onto Facebook this morning just to see my memories because that’s a fun little feature I enjoy. So I’m corny, OK. Sue me. But it says that six years ago, I tweeted “[email protected] #pettiest. #president. #EVER.” That was 2017, so it’s pretty wild that yesterday, in front of members of the United States Congress, my eerily precinct tweet has been proven to be 100% accurate. Yet, Chrissy Teigen is the one whose 2019 tweet calling the president Donald Trump a “pussy ass bitch,” was read into the official congressional record. And she didn’t even tag his pussy ass! It should have been me, dammit!
Chrissy’s tweet was at the center of a Republican-led Oversight and Accountability Committee looking into Elon Musk’s so-called “Twitter Files” which, according to the New York Times, was supposed to prove that President Joe Biden and the Democrats had systematically used Twitter to “to silence voices on the right.” However, a whistleblower at Twitter revealed that then-president Trump was, in fact, the #pettiest #president #EVER, and threatened Twitter with regulations if John Legend’s “filthy mouthed wife’s” Tweet wasn’t removed. Uproxx reports:
Chrissy Teigen clapping back at Donald Trump is now a matter of congressional record thanks to a hearing with former Twitter executives on Wednesday. At issue is a 2019 tweet in which Teigen called out Trump for referring to her as John Legend’s “filthy mouthed wife” while notably not tagging the prolific Twitter user.
“lol what a pussy ass bitch,” Teigen tweeted. “tagged everyone but me. an honor, mister president.”
While the back and forth with Teigen is pretty indicative of Trump’s time on Twitter before his account was suspended following the January 6 attack, the supermodel’s tweet resurfaced in an embarrassing moment for both the former president and Elon Musk, who along with conservatives, have accused the social media platform of censoring free speech at the request of Joe Biden. (It didn’t.)
According to The Daily Beast‘s Justin Baragona, while still in office, Trump was reportedly so angered by Teigen’s tweet that he demanded Twitter remove it or face consequences, which for the record is a textbook violation of the First Amendment.
Here’s the whistleblower blowing up Donald’s spot.

I can’t believe the former leader of the free world was more pressed by Chrissy’s messy behavior than 9-year-old child actor Quvenzhane’ Wallis (who, by the way, is now 19 and still ain’t said boo about it). Here’s Donald being read for filth, right into the history books.

I shudder at the thought that this fragile, fragile man probably still has the nuclear codes stored in a shed somewhere at Mar-a-Lago or scribbled on a post-it note stuck on a meat locker filled with unsold Trump steaks and Ivana Trump. According to the NYT, instead of proving that Joe’s White House sicced the FBI on Twitter to block an “unsubstantiated New York Post article” about Hunter Biden‘s laptop, we also heard testimony that “Twitter changed its rules to avoid adding labels to some of Mr. Trump’s tweets that would have identified them as violating the company’s rules.” And one executive at Twitter “testified that he had to sell his home and move after becoming the target of online harassment,” as a result of Elon’s sloppy release of The Twitter files. But if you think Elon feels bad about any of this mess, then you don’t know the first thing about punk ass bitches.
Don't go so hard on the Stasi, Elon, you share a lot.
The DDR's was characterised by a few key ideas and practices.
1. Extreme economic mismanagement
2. A 'zersetzung policy – defamation and harassment of enemies.
3. Harsh censorship.

Birds of a feather and all that. I don’t know what Trump’s prospects of getting back into the White House are, but I do know that in the time since Chrissy’s Tweet, Donald has been twice impeached, voted out of office, and sued more times than Chrissy’s threatened to leave Twitter. Meanwhile, Chrissy has successfully navigated a time-out in the “cancel club“ and survived to Tweet another day about her filthy mouth.

Ah, mind-numbing banality tastes good in a place like this. Just like the good old days. #NatureIsHealing
