While appearing on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Wednesday, the model recalled the moment she learned she had become Trump's Twitter target on Sunday and how she and husband John Legend came up with her viral response.
"We all just wait for our day to come," Teigen began. "And mine happened to be Sunday."
"I just got all these phone alerts...and I was like, 'Oh, something's happening,'" she continued. "So I go on Twitter to see it, but I'm still blocked [by Trump] so I have no idea what he said."
The "Lip Sync Battle" host then recounted what went down. If you recall, Trump slammed Legend on Twitter after the musician appeared on MSNBC to talk about criminal justice reform. According to 45, however, he wasn't given the credit he deserved. Teigen wasn't involved in her husband's interview at all, yet that didn't stop Trump from calling her out too.
"I was not part of it at all," Teigen told Ellen of the MSNBC story. "Donald for some reason thought that John was taking all the credit for it -- and me. I didn't even know he was filming this thing, honestly, I didn't know anything about it."
"He went and he called John a 'boring musician' and 'his filthy-mouthed wife' which, those two things are true," she joked. "John is boring, I do have a filthy mouth."
"We spent the entire rest of the night just sitting ... handing each other our phone," Teigen said of her and Legend. "'Should I say this? Should I say this?' 'No.' 'Should I say this?' 'No, it has to be funnier.' 'No, because we're mad!' ... It went on all night."
Although Ellen had to censor out what Teigen wrote to the president in response, the talk show host allowed the "Cravings" author to repeat what she said for the audience.
"That's a lot of asterisks," she joked before reading her tweet (below). "I said, 'lol what a p---y ass bitch president.'" Her words were bleeped out, but the audience loved it.
....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....
Teigen then recalled how #P---yAssBitchPresident started trending on Twitter. Since the social media app couldn't allow the first word to be shown, #PresidentPAB became the replacement hashtag.
"We're still working on how to copyright the correct term," Teigen joked.
“My heart stopped because at that moment you know that you're about to get just the wildest group of people ever," she added, referring to online haters. "I was really angry, I think my eyes filled up with water at the shock of it that, 'I can't believe this really happens right now.'"
"But you realize why you love Twitter and you love your friends," she continued. "I had so many group chats going that night of hilarious people and people making funny videos, so then you laugh about it."
