Chrissy Teigen is one of our most beloved celebrities. She’s funny, she’s open, she’s honest, she’s down to earth, and she never stops talking about food. These are just a few of the reasons why we find her highly entertaining and relatable, despite the fact that she is not immediately relatable, seeing as how she’s an internationally famous model and is married to John Legend.
She’s also doing fame very correctly, using the Twitter machine to pass along her silly and goofy observations. Again, relatable.
Why the fuck do frozen foods assume your drunk ass knows the wattage of your microwave? My sober ass doesn't even know.

Hate this macbook relationship. "When do you want to update?" "Later" "later today or later tomorrow?" Oh my god just fucking LATER

She’s also unabashedly anti-Trump, and isn’t afraid to put the “outspoken” president in his place on his home turf: Twitter.
The failing @nytimes writes false story after false story about me. They don't even call to verify the facts of a story. A Fake News Joke!

You are 71 fucking years old. Grow. The fuck. Up.

Over the weekend, Teigen took to Twitter to combine two of her most beloved online activities: prescient observational comedy and making fun of the president.
Last year saw the rapid rise of an alarming trend of people eating Tide Pods for some reason. You know, those are those compact, plastic-encased, swirly blue-and-orange nuggets of laundry soap you throw in with the wash instead of measuring out a scoop of blue liquid or kitty litter-esque powdered soap. Yeah, people are eating those for some reason, even though they are soap and are about as expensive as cocaine. Maybe it’s because they look like candy, and if somebody dares you to do something, you do it (a.k.a., the “Tide Pod Challenge”). Chrissy Teigen, though, figured out why it’s happening.
trump became president the same year people started eating tide pods

Is it a way to cope with Trump? Or are both just signs of a cultural wave of choosing bad choices? The rest of Twitter (although not Trump himself) had some thoughts.
