Trump hit Twitter to delete Chrissy Teigen’s “p*ssy” tweet
Chrissy Teigen clapping back at Donald Trump is now a matter for Congress thanks to a hearing with former Twitter executives on Wednesday. It’s about a 2019 tweet in which Teigen called Trump for calling her John Legend’s “dirty-mouthed woman,” while notably not tagging the prolific Twitter user.
“lol what an a*ssy a** b*tch” Teigen tweeted. “Tagged everyone but me. an honor, Mr. President.”
lol what a pussy ass bitch. everyone but me tagged. an honor, Mr President.

While the back-and-forth with Teigen was quite indicative of Trump’s time on Twitter before his account was banned following the Jan. 6 attack, the supermodel’s tweet resurfaced in an embarrassing moment for both the former president and Elon Musk , who have joined Conservatives in accusing the social media platform of censoring free speech at the request of Joe Biden. (It didn’t.)
Accordingly The daily beast‘S JustinBaragonawhile he was still in office, Trump was reportedly so upset with Teigen’s tweet that he asked Twitter to remove it or face consequences, in what for the protocol is a textbook violation of the First Amendment.
“Twitter leaders confirm to the House Oversight Committee that the Trump White House attempted to get Twitter to remove tweets mocking Trump by Chrissy Teigen,” Baragona tweeted. “Former Twitter executives testify, after confirming that Trump threatened the company with regulation and sought removal of tweets, that the Biden White House has not contacted them to censor tweets.”

When video of the hearing started hopping on Twitter, particularly the part where the phrase “p*ssy a** b*tch” was verbalized within the walls of Congress, Teigen couldn’t help but react to the situation.
“I… oh my god,” she wrote, along with a clip of executives backing Trump’s call for her tweet to be removed, which appeared to hurt his feelings.
