Chrissy Teigen Blasts Trump for ‘Hamilton’-Mike Pence Tweets: ‘Look Who Wants a F—ing Safe Space Now’

Chrissy Teigen briefly took her Twitter account off its private setting on Saturday to unleash a tweetstorm directed at Donald Trump.

Earlier that morning the president-elect demanded that the cast of the “Hamilton” apologize to Mike Pence who attended the Broadway musical on Friday night and was booed by the audience and addressed by the cast from the stage after the show.

“Wow @realdonaldtrump is right. I can’t believe they would subject poor, innocent Mike Pence to such abhorrent, evil hate speech,” she wrote sarcastically. “Look who wants a f—ing safe space now. The very thing him and his supporters make fun of as liberal political correctness. God, what a POS.”

The model and TV personality rattled off about half a dozen more tweets in one of which she called Trump’s presidency an “inevitable dumpster fire.”

She also referenced what has become frequently-referenced backlash to the amount of attention the ordeal has gotten — that Trump is using the events at “Hamilton” to distract from the fact that he agreed on Friday to pay $25 million to settle a series of lawsuits against Trump University.

“Donald knows very well what he is doing. He knows the Hamilton speech was NBD. He knows his tweet will fire both sides up to distract from the 25 million dollar settlement of yesterday. Most conniving human on planet earth,” she wrote.

Teigen is married to John Legend who also commented on the “Hamilton” situation and the call of Trump supporters to boycott the show.

“If #boycotthamilton goes like #boycottbeyonce I’m gonna start #boycottjohnlegend. S— seems lucrative,” he wrote.

Other celebrities have also insinuated that they suspect Pence’s trip to see “Hamilton” was used intentionally as a distraction. “The Big Short” director Adam McKay tweeted Saturday that he suspected involvement from Trump’s newly appointed chief advisor Steve Bannon.

“Could the Pence Hamilton night have been intentional from Trump camp? Perfect “culture war” distraction. And Bannon is very smart,” he wrote.

In October Teigen switched her Twitter account to private, citing that she was “not strong enough anymore.” Since her tweets bashing Trump on Saturday she has changed her privacy settings back to private.
