Meghan McCain recently revealed that she is taking Chrissy Teigen’s side in the television personality’s war of words with President Donald Trump. As of late, Trump had attacked Teigen and her husband, EGOT winner John Legend, on Twitter, calling Legend “boring” and Teigen “filthy-mouthed.”
The Inquisitr recently reported that the president took to Twitter to reveal his displeasure over Legend’s appearance on MSNBC as part of a special town hall on criminal justice reform, one hosted by NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt.
President Trump signed the First Step Act into law last year, which reduces mandatory minimum sentences in certain instances and gives judges more discretion. Trump claimed on Twitter that people who had nothing to do with the reform are taking the credit, including “boring” Legend and his “filthy-mouthed wife.”
Teigen responded to Trump’s tweet with her own tweet, clarifying that she felt the best part of the president’s remarks was that she didn’t even appear on the special, nor was she mentioned. She then added that she was “cackling” at the addition of her name to the conversation regarding the topic because, as she stated, “he cannot not be a b*tch.”
Meghan McCain let it be known that she was “Team Chrissy,” stating on Twitter, “Since when is there something wrong with being a filthy-mouthed wife?”
McCain has been an outspoken critic of this administration, and of President Trump himself, after he attacked her late father — Arizona Senator John McCain — on both social media and in the media, despite his failing health and eventual death.
The New York Times reported that seven months after McCain’s death, Trump attacked the late senator on Twitter over his role in the Justice Department investigation into alleged Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election. He added that the senator “had far worse ‘stains'” on his record, including the senator’s decisive vote against repealing the Affordable Care Act.

Last year tomorrow, August 25th was the worst day of my life. I lost my hero. I miss my father every single day, I will for the rest of my life. Grief is omnipresent and relentless. For every single person who has sent prayers, love & support to my family, we are truly grateful. On this anniversary until his birthday after the 29th I am going to take a break from social media for reflection. The memory of my father's life continues to guide me today, as it always will. Remember to cherish your loved ones and be grateful for every moment you have with them. I still can’t believe my heart didn’t stop when yours did Dad...
