The Twitter fury followed a late night tirade from President Donald Trump where he targeted the singer and his wife Chrissy Teigan. Trump was responding to an NBC interview with Legend where he spoke about criminal justice reform in the US. The President appeared to take offence at the show, seemingly for not getting enough credit for signing a bill that increases the chance for offenders to become eligible for parole.

He expressed his distaste in the interview on Twitter, claiming “people that had virtually nothing to do with it are taking the praise”.

Trump added: ”Guys like boring musician @johnlegend, and his filthy mouthed wife, are talking now about how great it is, but I didn’t see them around when we needed help getting it passed.”

The Grammy-winner responded to criticisms of his “filthy mouthed wife” by taking to social media to take aim at Melania.

He called on the First Lady to give Trump more praise for the benefit of the country.

The singer wrote on Twitter: “Melania, please praise this man. He needs you. Your country needs you, Melania.”

He followed up the post by retweeting an image of the First Lady leaning in for a kiss with Mr Trudeau at the G7 summit in France last month.

In his Tweet, Legend suggested Melania was too “occupied” to focus on her husband.

He wrote: “Ah yes, Melania is otherwise occupied. My apologies, @realDonaldTrump.“

JUST IN: Melania Trump HUMILIATED by her own husband Donald Trump

A body language expert revealed it was just the camera angle that made it look more intimate than others believed.

One person commented on Twitter: “Looks like Melania (in the photograph) is infatuated with PM Trudeau and I can understand why.”

“Everyone needs to find someone who looks at you the way Melania looks at Trudeau,” another wrote.

One more said: “I think my husband might divorce me if I looked at another man the way Melania is looking at Trudeau.”

Trumps attack did not go down lightly with Teigan as she too took to Twitter to respond to the attack.

Replying to the “filthy mouthed wife” comment, Teigen referred to Trump as a “p***y a**e b***h president” who was having his “9th meltdown of the day.”

She added: “The absolute best part of his tweet is I literally didn’t speak in the special, nor was I mentioned. I’m cackling at the pointless addition of me because he cannot not be a b***h.”

The model and TV personality is a long-standing and outspoken critic of Trump.

She Married Legend in 2014 after meeting on the set of a music video.
