Tomi Lahren is taking sides in President Trump’s Twitter beef with John Legend and Chrissy Teigen — and it’s perhaps no surprise that she agrees with POTUS.
Last week, Trump blasted Legend as “boring” and Teigen as “filthy-mouthed” in tweet reacting to the “All Of Me” singer’s participation in an MSNBC special addressing issues in the criminal justice system. Teigen, who wasn’t involved in the show, was surprised to get the presidential shout-out but recovered in time to fire back that he was a “p***y a** b****.”
The feud has now made its way to Fox News. This weekend, Lahren joined Watters’ World host Jesse Watters to share their thoughts on Teigen.
“Well she’s always been filthy-mouthed,” Lahren told Watters, who said Teigen’s profane description of the president “confirmed” as much. “She’s done this numerous times.”

Lahren — whose fiancé, Brandon Fricke, just announced that he’s running for Congress — went on to claim that Teigen has blocked her on Twitter because “clearly she’s got a little ego bruising from several conservatives.”
‘Everybody blocks you on Twitter though, right?” joked Watters, prompting Lahren to pull a face and respond, “well, perhaps.”
But Teigen’s use of the word “p***y” represented a “double standard” when compared to the outrage over Trump’s own “grab her by the p***y” comments, she insisted.
“All the liberals are so excited,” Lahren said. “They think that she’s so bold, she’s so valiant, she’s such a warrior for their cause. But just a couple of years ago everyone was going into hysterics over that word, so it’s funny the double standard there.”
“If Trump goes low, the Democrats go even lower,” agreed Watters.
Lahren had criticized Teigen’s language earlier in the week, though she herself used the term days later in a tweet calling out “p***y-footed Democrats.”
Filthy-mouthed @chrissyteigen calls our president the p-word and is celebrated. Typical double standard.
Wasn’t the Left crying and hysterical about the p-word a few years ago?

Teigen supporters reacted to Lahren’s comments by rushing to defend the model and cookbook author.
On @JesseBWatters show, @TomiLahren, whose ideology is for sale to the group of people who will give her the most attention and money, says @chrissyteigen blocks her because she's gotten an "ego bruising from several conservatives."

I suspect Chrissy Teigen blocks Tori/Tomi/whatever because she doesn’t see the need to respond to people seeking attention by trolling upward.

She blocks Tami...because Tami is irrelevant. Chrissy is out here living her best life...while Tami is doing everything she can to try to get attention from celebrities. Sad

But others agreed with Lahren.
Seriously would people even know who she was if she wasnt married to John Legend

Yeah, but then they started wearing p-word hats, so it's ok now. Everything's ok if the left says or does it. Nothing is ok if anybody else says or does it.

Lahren has been putting out some fires of her own over the last few days. On Friday she issued an apology after Julián Castro accused her of encouraging violence against immigrants, insisting that is “not what I meant.”
Not what I meant & I apologize for the way it came out. I simply mean without a secure border we don’t know who is coming into our nation & those who wish to do us harm will exploit it. I’m NOT advocating for violence against any person, regardless of race or immigration status. https://t.co/JJjkfplFmk
