In stressful times like these, America needs a leader who is willing to put aside their own selfish interests and think of the people — and since we don’t have anything close to that in the White House, Chrissy Teigen is stepping up to the plate!
The wife of John Legend and Twitter extraordinaire took to her favorite social platform on Tuesday to call out First Lady Melania Trump for barely batting an eye over the coronavirus pandemic.
The tweets came hours after the cookbook author enjoyed several glasses of wine during her hubby’s live-streamed mini-concert. She even tweeted she was “so drunk” afterwards she couldn’t see.
Clearly in a #nofilter mood, Teigen didn’t hold back her thoughts on FLOTUS’ minimal response to the worldwide crisis, writing:
“Has melania even thought about doing something with her be best shit during these times? I see regular ass awesome people on my timeline all day doing all they can to make people happy and this wifebot is working on whatever the f**k a tennis gazebo is”
But she’s not wrong: Mel hasn’t done much more than lift a well manicured finger over the deadly pandemic that her Sociopath In Chief husband previously insisted was a Democratic hoax days before declaring a national emergency.
She tweeted on March 11:
“Our great country is fighting hard against the #Coronavirus. This nation is strong & ready & we will overcome. Please take action to prevent further spread. Visit cdc.gov for updated heath info & updates.”
The former model followed up a few days later, telling her followers on Twitter that “social distancing at this time is very important.”
So, technically, Melania (read: the office of Melania) hasn’t been completely silent on the subject, but gurl has done virtually nothing to help calm the people — a job First Ladies have historically taken on in times of turmoil.
Chrissy continued to air out her grievances about FLOTUS’ minimal response in a string of follow-up tweets, also mentioning Donald Trump, with whom she’s been feuding for months, writing:
“I expect Donald to be a do nothing f**king loser wimp but she could maybe possibly try to uhhh BE BETTER possibly the best be the best the best be best”
Ha! Trump infamously told his followers on February 28, “the Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus” and that “this is their new hoax.” You don’t have to look far to see the claim is still reverberating online as every post about the virus — from CNN to Idris Elba — is getting called fake by people with MAGA in their screen names.
But Chrissy isn’t looking at The Donald, she’s focused on Melania. She finished:
“ALL I have seen this bot do is gently touch Christmas ornaments in a cape and stare in a cape and pat statues in a different cape and then change her cape into a rude ass jacket. F**k you”
FLOTUS has not been seen in public since March 10, when she made remarks to a national conference of PTA leaders in Virginia — without mentioning the coronavirus.
Should we expect Melania to be better about this virus crisis, Perezcious readers? Or best even??
