Trump criticized the couple and other celebrities for not crediting him for signing criminal justice reform legislation.

“When all of the people pushing so hard for Criminal Justice Reform were unable to come even close to getting it done, they came to me as a group and asked for my help. I got it done with a group of Senators & others who would never have gone for it. Obama couldn’t come close,” Trump tweeted. 

The president noted that he signed the legislation into law and said “Republicans deserve much credit.”

“Musician @johnlegend, and his filthy mouthed wife, are talking now about how great it is — but I didn’t see them around when we needed help getting it passed. ‘Anchor’@LesterHoltNBC doesn’t even bring up the subject of President Trump or the Republicans when talking about the importance or passage of Criminal Justice Reform,” he continued. 

“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 had failed, all they talk about now is Impeaching President Trump!”

Teigen, who was not named in Trump’s tweet, quickly responded by calling the president a string of expletives.

She also shared that the attack came the night before their daughter's first day of school.
