Chrissy Teigen just got Donald Trump an incredibly generous birthday present
The internet is obsessed with many things: acai bowls, memes, the Kardashians and... the veritable powerhouse that is Chrissy Teigen.
If you were to ask someone to pin-point when exactly Chrissy became a household name, chances are you wouldn't come up with a conclusive answer. Sure, she is known for her modelling career (by and by her good looks), and her picture perfect marriage to Grammy award winning musician, John Legend, but it's her eviscerating sense of humour that has made her such a topic of conversation in recent years. From poking fun at herself to berating Donald Trump, it's clear that Chrissy deserves her own show dedicated to her larger-than-life personality, adorable family (I mean, just check out her Instagram account for pictures of Luna) and endless tirades.
Now, Chrissy wants her fans to know exactly where she stands on the topic of the 45th President of the United States. To celebrate his 72nd birthday, she and John Legend went above and beyond and gifted Trump with hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of donations to the ACLU.
Chrissy Teigen has made a generous donation to the human rights charity, ACLU, to mark Donald Trump's birthday, and to criticise what she refers to as his "inhumane" administration.
The model took to Twitter and Instagram to post a statement which took aim at how the President treats immigrants in the United States. Revealing that each member of her family had donated $72,000 to the American Civil Liberties Union to "celebrate", she asserted:
"John and I are outraged to see and hear the horror stories of immigrant families seeking asylum and refuge in America being ripped apart due to the inhumane policies of the Trump administration. These actions are cruel, anti-family and go against everything we believe this country should represent. The ACLU is committed to defending the rights and humanity of these vulnerable families. In addition to fighting for immigrants’ rights, they’re advocating for reproductive rights, voting rights, criminal justice reform, LGBT rights, 1st amendment rights and holding the Trump administration accountable whenever possible."
"The President celebrates his 72nd birthday today. On this auspicious occasion, in order to Make Trump’s Birthday Great Again, each member of our family has donated $72,000 to the ACLU. If you would like to donate $7.20, $72, or whatever you like to the ACLU in honor of this blessed day, please go to www.aclu.org/72. With love, Chrissy, John, Luna and Miles"
This is not the first time that Chrissy has taken aim at Donald Trump. Earlier this year, she shared an observation that was so uncanny that the whole of the internet was perplexed that they hadn't seen it before. She tweeted, "Trump became president the same year people started eating tide pods".
And in one fell tweet, Chrissy Teigen summed up 2017: it will forever be remembered as the year when former Apprentice star and billionaire property mogul, Donald Trump became President, and as the year when people seriously considered consuming those colourful laundry detergent pods.
Well, there you have it. What a novel way to support a great cause and troll President Trump in the process. Well done, Chrissy!
