This is what happens when the president of the United States insults the patron saint of Twitter.
Trump unleashed a series of tweets on Sunday night that complained about how little attention he has received for criminal justice reform, and called out NBC News anchor Lester Holt, as well as “boring” musician John Legend and “his filthy mouthed wife” — although he didn’t name or tag Legend’s partner, author and TV personality Chrissy Teigen, in his rant.
So Teigen, who’s become a social media superstar for sharing unfiltered and relatable posts of her kitchen fails and parenting struggles, clapped back in an obscenity-laced tweet that mocked the POTUS for tagging everyone but her in his post by calling him a “p**** ass bitch.”
“[W]hat a p**** ass bitch. [T]agged everyone but me. [A]n honor, mister president.”
She also shared a picture of herself creating a chalkboard sign for her 3-year-old daughter Luna’s first day of preschool, once again calling the president the profane insult and referring to what she called his “9th meltdown of the day.”
Of course, the president is no stranger to swearing, himself. The New York Times, which has dubbed him the “profanity president,” counted Trump using 10 “hells,” as well as an “ass” and a couple of “bullsh—s” in a single Panama City Beach, Fla., speech in May.
And a recent analysis found that lawmakers are swearing more than ever on Twitter
this year, dropping an obscene 1,225 curse words on the social media site as of August. And overall swearing by politicians on Twitter (not counting the s- or f-words) jumped 549% between 2016 and 2017, the year Trump was inaugurated as president.

Of course, many of us are being more liberal with spewing profanities in public. More than half of employees admitted in a 2018 CareerBuilder survey that they curse at work. And even silver-tongued Julie Andrews recently admitted that she swears “a lot” — including on the set of the beloved Disney
family classic “Mary Poppins.”
