President Donald Trump continued a tirade against John Legend and his "dirty fly" wife, Chrisie Tiegen, after the singer appeared on MSNBC's criminal justice reform program.
Trump appears to be upset that he and his Republicans did not give enough credit for helping the passage of criminal justice reform, also known as the First Step Act, on NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt and elected to go up against the EGOT winning singer and his wife, model and TV presenter.
In December 2018, Trump signed into law the first step in a law after it was passed in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. The act lowers mandatory minimum sentences in certain cases and will see more than 3,000 prisoners released.
During the show, John Legend calls on people to join his Free America organization, which he created to help "transform America's penal system. "He also called on viewers to" become voters who think of criminal justice as a problem that they can address "and to be" aware of what your governors and legislators are doing in your country "to help reform the penal system.

"Obama could not get close and many others were extremely grateful (at the time!). I meant in law no one else did it
"But now that it's past, people who have virtually nothing to do with him are praising the boys. A boring musician @johnlegend and his dirty muzzle wife are talking about it now." how great – but I didn't see them around when we needed help to get through.
@LesterHoltNBC's "Anchor" does not even raise the topic of President Trump or Republicans when they talk about the importance or passage of criminal justice reform.
He added: "They only talk about minor players or people who do not have nothing to do with it … And the people who were so desperate for my help when everyone else failed, all they are talking about now is President Trump's attacker! "
Teigen responded to a blast in a tweet mentioning a daughter Luna, do you remember the night before the first item and a school day? When Mom was making your mark and President p **** a ** b **** was having its 9th crash of the day, "Teigen writes.
" The absolute best part of his tweet is that it literally I did not speak in particular, nor was I mentioned. I'm calling for the pointless addition of me because he can't be in ****, "she added.  Then Teigen launched a campaign to get #PresidentP **** A ** B ****
In response to Trump's remarks, Legend writes, "Imagine being a nationwide president and spending your Sunday night hating watching MSNBC hoping someone – SOMEONE – to praise you. Melania, please praise this man. He needs you. Your country needs you, Melania. "
Earlier this year, Teigen was one of several names to push for a boycott of several fitness companies, including Equinox and SoulCycle, after it was revealed that their majority owner was hosting a fundraiser for the Trump Reelection Campaign in 2020
