President Trump bashed musician John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, on Twitter after Legend appeared on an MSNBC criminal justice reform town hall Sunday night.

Trump was apparently peeved that Legend didn't give him enough credit for his part in reforming the criminal justice system.

On Sunday night following the televised town hall, Trump took to Twitter to rant about people like "boring musician" Legend and his "filthy mouthed wife" Teigen talking about how great the criminal justice reform is without crediting him for The First Step Act, which Trump signed into law in April.

Also attacking MSNBC town hall moderator Lester Holt, Trump failed to realize that Holt did, in fact, give Trump credit for passing reform in the Dateline episode that led up to the town hall, as well as showing footage of Trump signing the bill in the Oval Office and adding that it was "projected to reduce the sentences of thousands of non-violent offenders in federal prisons."

Both Legend and Teigen responded by slamming Trump, with Legend calling out Trump's blatant narcissism for needing praise in the first place.

Legend also called on First Lady Melania Trump to do something about it.


Teigen was less diplomatic in her response, giving Trump a nickname for the ages to live up to her "foul-mouthed" moniker.


And she used it not once, but TWICE.



I mean, she has a point.


Twitter couldn't believe what was happening, so naturally they made #PresidentP*ssyA**B*tch trend.

Many weighed in on just how absurd the whole thing was.

Sherrilyn Ifill, the President and Director-Counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDP) weighed in with an insightful Twitter thread breaking down exactly who should be getting credit for criminal justice reform. (Hint: It's not Donald Trump.)

Ifill also praised Legend and other advocates for what they've been doing to help reform the criminal justice system.

And put President Trump in his place.


So, nice try, Trump.

Next time, don't come for Chrissy and John. They will make you instantly regret it.

With the exception of reliable movie showtimes, live performances rarely start at the exact indicated time.

But a few minutes of delays are easily forgivable, especially for touring concerts due to the complex nature of setting up in every city.

According to a February 2019 decision by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment means that a woman may go topless in any place that a man may go topless.

This earlier court ruling was the basis of Effie Krokos' argument when she was ticketed—months after the decision—for being topless in her fiancé's front yard in Loveland, Colorado.

Most of the time, dress codes are there for a reason. Sure, there are the unfair instances of "no spaghetti straps at school" and "no jeans at the office". But at the same time, there are certain work environments that don't call for inappropriate wear. And when you go in for that first interview, you've got to leave a good impression.

On a recent visit to Toronto, Tom Felton—the actor behind Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter franchise—shared a hilariously self-deprecating shot from his visit to a Harry Potter exhibit.

While there, Felton donned a Slytherin robe and posed next to a picture of his younger self as Malfoy, looking...well, a bit rough around the edges.
