The model gets the last laugh after a federal judge ruled that President Trump can’t block his foes from viewing his tweets.
Donald Trump can’t get rid of Chrissy Teigen from his Twitterverse. The model’s past tweets about the president led him to block her on the micro-blogging site, but now she’s ready to welcome him back to her feed.
A federal judge ruled on Wednesday, May 23 that Trump can’t block his foes from viewing his tweets. Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald explained that because Trump is a government, his Twitter feed is an official government account, so blocking people from viewing his tweets violates the First Amendment. “The speech in which they seek to engage is protected by the First Amendment,” she said in her ruling.
Teigen welcomed this news with her usual mocking grace. The “Lip Sync Battle” co-host shared a video of her watching the news on TV and wrote in the caption, “Well well well we meet again @realDonaldTrump.”
Teigen has been vocal about her disdain for Trump. After the president tweeted in July 2017, “It’s very sad that Republicans, even some that were carried over the line on my back, do very little to protect their President,” she wrote back, “no one likes you.” Her response was the last straw.
She then revealed that she was blocked by Trump on Twitter. “After 9 years of hating Donald J Trump, telling him ‘lol no one likes you’ was the straw,” she wrote alongside a screenshot of his blocked Twitter profile.
The 32-year-old model previously said she’s been hating Trump since 2012. “I will never stop talking about how horrible Donald Trump is,” she tweeted in 2016. “Even after he loses, I will set an alert to my phone to remind me to not stop.”
But Teigen was not the only celebrity who got blocked by Trump. Actress Rosie O’Donnell and authors Stephen King and Anne Rice revealed they got blocked by the president as well, but they will soon be able to read his tweets again.
