CHRISSY Teigen has slammed Donald Trump as a “p**** a** b****” after the American leader called her “filthy-mouthed”.
The war of words broke out on Twitter after the model’s singer husband, John Legend, criticised the country’s “broken criminal justice system”.
Legend – an activist who founded Let’s Free America, to push for criminal justice reform – told NBC about his bid to “end mass incarceration”.
The news channel was airing a special evening programme on mass incarceration in the US, called “Justice for All”, which included a segment with the singer.
But a fuming Trump said that Legend had failed to point out the president’s own success in bringing about change, and were accepting praise for his administration’s work.
Last year, he signed the First Step Act, which reduces mandatory minimum sentences in some cases – allowing judges more discretion while sentencing.
Fox News points out that more than 3,100 inmates will be released under the act, which has won applause from both Republicans and Democrats.
Trump said that Legend and his “filthy-mouthed wife” had spoken about “how great “ the reform was, but hadn’t played any role.
He blasted on Twitter that “many” people were “grateful” that “I signed it into law, no one else did, & Republicans deserve much credit.
“But now that it is passed, people that had virtually nothing to do with it are taking the praise. Guys like boring musician @johnlegend, and his filthy mouthed wife, are talking about how great it is – but I didn’t see them around when we needed help getting it passed.”
Trump added that: “I got it done with a group of Senators and others who would never have gone for it.
“Obama couldn’t come close.”
He was also infuriated that NBC “didn’t even bring up the subject of President Trump or the Republicans when talking about the importance 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 failed, all they talk about now is impeaching President Trump!”
Teigen responded in a foul-mouthed rant on Twitter: “lol what a p**** a** b****. Tagged everyone but me. An honor mister president [sic].”
She pointed out that she hadn’t appeared on NBC alongside her husband.
The TV star added that the “absolute best part of his tweet is I literally didn’t speak in the [NBC] special, nor was I mentioned.
“I’m cackling at the pointless addition of me because he cannot not be a b****.”
Teigen then used her daughter, Luna, three, to make a point about Trump, tweeting, “Luna, remember the night before your first day of school?
“When mommy was making your sign and the p**** a** b**** president had his 9th meltdown of the day.”
Then, when her hashtag, “#PresidentP****A**B****” seemed to be gaining popularity among her 11.5million followers, she stressed: “guys please do not make this [a] trend, for it is my fight with #PresidentP****A**B****, not yours!”
Legend, a Grammy-award winning artist, responded to Trump’s rant by reaching out to the First Lady.
He tweeted: “Imagine being president of a whole country and spending your Sunday night hate-watching MSNBC hoping somebody – ANYBODY – will praise you.
“Melania, please praise the man. He needs you. Your country needs your Melania.”
Legend also joked about his wife’s vulgar hashtag, recommending people against retweeting it.

Trump and Teigen have been at loggerheads for years.
He blocked her in 2017 after she repeatedly criticised him on Twitter.
Teigen told USA Today: “I’ve actually been a big Donald Trump hater [for a long time].
“I’ve been trolling him for about five to seven years now.
“I’ve been doing this forever, and I take pride in that.”
