But there was just one problem with the scathing presidential put-down cooked up by Teigen: It’s likely too dirty for Twitter trends ― so the president’s critics had to devise another way to get it onto the list.
Trump attacked Legend on Sunday night after the musician appeared on an MSNBC special about criminal justice reform. He also insulted model and cookbook author Teigen but without mentioning her name.
Trump tagged Legend and NBC’s Lester Holt, but not Teigen ― and she fired back by taunting him with a new nickname:
lol what a pussy ass bitch. tagged everyone but me. an honor, mister president.

That led to plenty of tweets referring to Trump as “President Pussy Ass Bitch.”
That phrase didn’t trend, likely because of the expletives. But many of his critics began abbreviating it ― and that worked as #PresidentPAB climbed to the top of the list of trending terms:
Coming home from work to see #PresidentPAB is trending has made my damn day.
Don’t ever get in a Twitter war with Chrissy Teigen & John Legend. 🤔😂🤣😂🤣
