Chrissy Teigen just smacked down the man behind fake Mueller rape accusations in epic Twitter fight

By far the strangest story of the week was that of Jacob Wohl, the 20-year-old disgraced hedge fund manager turned pro-Trump Twitter troll who surged into the national spotlight as the witless puppeteer behind an attempt to manufacture false rape accusations against Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

On Tuesday, several journalists reported that they had been contacted by a woman who said she had been offered money to invent sexual misconduct allegations against Mueller. The dossier outlining the fake rape accusation was traced back to Wohl. Surefire Intelligence, the group tied to the document, turned out to be a fake company populated by people who don’t really exist and its listed phone number belongs to Wohl’s mother.

The exact details of the scheme are less important than the fact that it was so painfully inept that it led to Mueller referring the incident to the FBI for investigation. In other words, there seems to be a nonzero chance that Wohl could end up behind bars for his harebrained scheme.

Chrissy Teigen, noted anti-Trump celebrity and activist, took to Twitter asking for a brief explainer on the Wohl story, saying that she didn’t have the energy to dig fully into the weird story herself.

In response Wohl, ever craving attention, responded with an image of the Google trend for searches of his name and claimed that he has “become more famous” than Teigen. Of course, all the image really shows is that nobody knew who he was before. Furthermore, Wohl isn’t famous now, he’s infamous and the subject of much mockery.

Teigen responded with a crushing tweet by pointing out that image just proves that people had to Google Wohl’s “dumbass” to find out who he was. It was exactly the kind of pithy, effective shutdown we’ve come to expect from her and just what Wohl deserves. He’s a joke of a man, a momentary blip on the national radar who will inevitably fade into obscurity or end up incarcerated.
