I love a good Twitter feud, and the more random the better. Today’s feud certainly delivers, pitting MVP Twitter troll Chrissy Teigen against our President, Donald Trump. Both super famous, both prolific tweeters, but how did this come about? Here’s what you need to know about this spectacularly random feud, and how #PresidentPussyAssBitch came to be a thing.

On Sunday, MSNBC hosted a town hall about criminal justice reform. The town hall was hosted by Lester Holt, and featured John Legend speaking to prison inmates about the impact their incarceration has had on their lives and families. During the event, they did not mention a bipartisan criminal justice reform bill signed into law by Trump last year, and he quickly noticed. He took to Twitter late Sunday night to complain about the lack of credit he was given, and the tweets were typically whiney and unhinged.

But in addition to complaining about the specific town hall, he also dragged Chrissy Teigen into the narrative.

Big mistake. Huge.

Not only is Chrissy Teigen the only person mentioned in his rant that he didn’t tag, but he couldn’t even be bothered to use her actual name. Much like the infamous “nasty woman” phrase he used to describe Hillary Clinton, people have already taken ownership of “filthy mouthed wife,” and are using it to declare their opposition to Trump.

Of course, once Chrissy Teigen got mentioned in this whole mess, it didn’t take long for her to make her opinion known. And in that moment, something instantly iconic was born.

PUSSY. ASS. BITCH. Really, this is a flawless insult, and you know Donald Trump must have been so angry when he saw it. Over the last couple years, Chrissy Teigen has perfected her brand of shade on social media, and she knows exactly how to turn the knife without trying too hard. She seems completely unbothered, but is totally ruthless at the same time.

She followed up the pussy ass bitch tweet with another important point—there was no reason for Trump to even mention her in the first place. She wasn’t even at the MSNBC town hall, so why include her at all? And if you’re going to come for Queen Christine, at least have the balls to say her name.

“He cannot not be a bitch” is an accurate description of at least 60% of the men in my life, so I can relate. While the word “bitch” can mean many things, it really is the perfect description of Donald Trump. He’s shown us time and time again that he has one of the world’s most fragile egos, which is 100% crazy considering that he literally got elected President. But in this case, he wasn’t even being criticized! He was so bothered by the fact that John Legend and Lester Holt weren’t talking about him that he had to act a fool on Twitter. It’d be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic and he weren’t running our country.

While Chrissy didn’t have much more to say about Trump (and why should she?), she literally quoted herself an hour later after getting pasta on her new couch. I am Chrissy, Chrissy is me.

The initial Twitter exchange was good enough, but then Twitter worked its magic and came up with some really excellent jokes about the whole debacle. Here are some of my favorite takes on #filthymouthedwife-gate, which only started 12 hours ago. I feel old.

Honestly, why does anyone in 2019 think it’s a good idea to come for Chrissy Teigen? She’s basically the Princess of Twitter, and her clap-back game is nearly unmatched. It just doesn’t end well if you don’t come correct. I don’t expect Donald Trump to understand this, but he looks like an assclown.

Deep down, we are all filthy mouthed wives. It’s a badge of honor, whether you’re an actual wife or not. Chrissy would want it this way.

Ah yes, there’s nothing more soothing in the morning than lighting some candles, doing a quick meditation sesh, and seeing that Chrissy Teigen is clowning the President on Twitter. Namaste!!

Of course, John Legend had to jump in on this too, and he makes the most important point here—why is Donald Trump even watching this sh*t? And either way, why does he care? Bro, you are literally the PRESIDENT. Get a f*cking hobby. Or, here’s a crazy idea, do your job??? I don’t think Melania can save us at this point, but whatever.

And in one of the funnier twists in this feud, #PresidentPussyAssBitch is not trending on twitter, because it’s too profane to feature in the trending topics. But of course, it’s still trending on Twitter, because literally everyone is saying it. Naturally, people started to troll both President Trump and the Twitter rules by sarcastically begging for it not to trend.

Hopping on the trend, Chrissy even put out a plea, asking us to all stay out of her deeply intimate fight with the President. Hopefully it doesn’t trend, because Chrissy and Donald really deserve their privacy during this time!

Luckily, Twitter is a deeply respectful place, and we would literally never let something so personal trend.

Are you #TeamChrissy in this feud? I hope so, or else you probably wouldn’t have read this far. I can’t wait to see if Donald Trump comes for her again, but I have a feeling this isn’t quite over yet.

In the mean time, you can show your true colors as a filthy mouthed wife with our brand new Shop Betches mug. You need it, don’t even pretend you don’t.
