Superstar celebrity and international model Chrissy Teigen has been a consistently outspoken critic of the Trump regime. She’s not afraid to bluntly call him and his supporters out for their bigotry, hypocrisy, and outright mendacity on a daily basis.
With how central the president has made Twitter to his political persona, it’s perhaps not surprising that his most unhinged, ignorant fans have flocked to the social media platform en masse. Many of them create anonymous profiles to spew their filth, and mixed into this cyber-horde is an indeterminate number of Russian bots that help to boost their messages. They represent the worst that Twitter has to offer.
Today, Teigen took aim at the frothing Trumpian mob. She referred to them as “maga trash” a fitting moniker and a reference to Trump’s inane slogan Make America Great Again.
She also called them “parasites”, which describes well these users who latch onto any tweet that disagrees with their clueless little worldview and proceed to harp endlessly in bad faith. They live off of negativity and divisiveness.
Teigen finished with a perfect coup de grâce by mocking their spelling, which is infamously terrible. Some can’t spell because they’re simply ignorant, others because they’re Russians masquerading as American voters.
maga trash ruins twitter. they’re like parasites, constantly trying to find a body to infest. rabid. and the spelling, my god the spelling. block block block.

While Teigen didn’t specify what prompted her tweet this time, the MAGA accounts have been engaging in especially deplorable behavior in the wake of the tragic Parkland, Florida mass school shooting.
Some Trump fans are attacking the surviving students because they’re speaking out for gun control. An even more dangerous and conspiratorially minded segment is implying that the surviving students must be paid actors because they want Congress to take action to prevent future shootings.
There is simply no bottom for these people. They will sink to a new low given every opportunity, just like their conman ringleader in the White House. Good on Teigan for taking the fight to them.
