President Trump lashed out at John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, in his latest tweet storm Sunday night.
Trump obviously spent his Sunday night watching MSNBC’s Justice for All series in which Legend joined host Lester Holt inside New York’s Sing Sing prison. The intention was to show how the criminal justice system has affected prisoners and their families, and then discuss ideas for changing the system. But what set Trump off was that there was no mention of the criminal justice reform bill that he signed back in December.
Trump tweeted, “Guys like boring musician @johnlegend, and his filthy mouthed wife, are talking now about how great it is – but I didn’t see them around when we needed help getting it passed. ‘Anchor’ @LesterHoltNBC doesn’t even bring up the subject of President Trump or the Republicans when talking about the importance or passage of Criminal Justice Reform. They only talk about the minor players, or people that had nothing to do with it…And the people that so desperately sought my help when everyone else had failed, all they talk about now is Impeaching President Trump!”
Legend, who has been an outspoken critic of Trump, responded, “Imagine being president of a whole country and spending your Sunday night hate-watching MSNBC hoping somebody–ANYBODY–will praise you. Melania, please praise this man. He needs you.” (USA Today)
