Chrissy Teigen on the Moment She Became the Subject of the President’s Tweets


I don’t know if y’all
know what happened, but the President of the United
States picked a fight with you on Twitter. Randomly. Yeah. But I just want to
say that it’s just like, when I heard
about this, it’s like kind of not even shocking
to hear that the president is picking fights with
people on Twitter. Like, it’s just like, that
something’s wrong with that. We all just wait
for our day to come. Yeah. And mine happened to be Sunday. Yeah, OK. So, what did you do? Explain what was happening. I just got all
these phone alerts, some being from Andy actually. [LAUGHING] And I was like, what,
something’s happening. So I go on Twitter to see
it, but I’m still blocked, so I have no idea what he said. So the president is
blocked you because you’ve said some things about
him and he didn’t like it, so he blocked you. Like, I’ve said a lot of things. I mean, this wasn’t that random. I’ve said a lot of things in the
past, I think since like 2012. I’ve been saying things
about him, but, yeah. I mean, it was just– so someone had to send me
screenshots and it was– my heart stopped,
because at that moment, you know that you’re
about to get just a wildest group of people ever. OK, explain what
happened though. So people that don’t know what– Well, John did a story on MSNBC
about criminal justice reform. So he was a part
of that interview. I was not a part of it at all. And then Donald,
for some reason, thought that John was taking
all the credit for it, and me. And I didn’t even know he
was filming this thing. Honestly, I didn’t even
know anything about it. So, he just went in and he
called John a boring musician and his filthy mouth wife. Which, those two
things are true. John is boring, I do
have a filthy mouth. [LAUGHING] But when it’s you– when the
card lands on you that day, it’s just really like, oh, crap,
because you’re whole night’s ruined. We spent the entire rest of
the night just sitting just like this, next to each other,
handing each other our phone. Should I say this? Should I say this? No. Should I say this? No. No, it has to be funnier. No. No, because we’re mad. Yeah we’re mad. And then it just
went on all night. So, you said, we can’t say– I might of said something. You said something
that we can’t say. [LAUGHING] [APPLAUSE] That’s a lot of asterisks. Yeah, because we
can’t say those words. Can I say it now? If you want to. I said, LOL what a [BEEP]
[BEEP] [BEEP] president. All right. All right, so then that started
trending, and that kind of– Yeah we got hashtag [BEEP]
[BEEP] [BEEP] president or president [BEEP] [BEEP]
[BEEP] was trending. But they couldn’t really
show that it was trending. But I got enough Twitter
family and friends to know. So then it became PAB. Yeah. Right. Then it became PAB. It got shortened to
President PAB, PAB President. We’re still working on how to
copyright the correct term. All right so– and
how does John feel when you– because you
really are outspoken. You’re not scared of anything. You’ll say exactly how you feel. Yeah. And– But I had been so
good for so long. I was– I really– like, I’ve been on
such good behavior. I really think before I tweet
lately, because, you know, I’ve really I’ve gotten
to this point where I don’t want to offend
people just for a joke. You have to be careful, I guess. I mean, I understand you
were angry and you know– It was a weird feeling. I was really angry. I think my eyes filled up with
water just at the shock of it, that I can’t believe this
really happens right now. Yeah. He just goes on these
rants and usually very late at night for him. You just wait for
him to say something but you don’t think it’s
going to be you, and then. Yeah. Yeah, but then it
goes into– you realize why you love Twitter
and you love your friends. I had so many group
chats going that night of just hilarious people and
people making funny videos, sending to me. Right. It was– so then
you laugh about it. Right. So, now you’ve calmed
down, and that’s just– you’re going
to let that go, right? Yeah, maybe. Did he say something else? No, I don’t know. I don’t know anything. You had– Is he here? You had a– [LAUGHING] Yeah, come on out, Donald. That would be the best– What a surprise. Oh, god. Hello.
