John Legend, the anti-Trump wet blanket husband of leftist model Chrissy Teigen, has fired back at Megyn Kelly after the former Fox News star ripped his wife over her elitist behavior at the White House Correspondents Dinner.
Kelly blasted Teigen after viral videos emerged of the pretentious star entering the event with servants carrying her dress tails.
“Megyn, she likes attention,” Legend fired back.
“She needs it after getting fired from Fox, so she has to do what she can do to get attention.
“She pissed all the conservatives off when she asked Trump a tough question, so now she’s trying to figure out a way to win them back. She’s desperate.”
Legend addressed Kelly’s comments that Teigen is an elitist.
He argues that Teigen, who famously bullied a teenager by pressuring her to commit suicide, is actually “very kind, very loving, very down to earth.”
When asked whether Teigen feels bad about having the “serfs” hold her dress, he said, “No, why should she?”
“You know who they think is relevant? Chrissy Teigen,” Kelly said of the corporate media’s reporting on the left-wing model, who was given a free pass on her bullying scandal.
“That’s who they invited as their big star.
“We’ve gone from George Clooney to Chrissy Teigen, who showed up there like she was literally going to the coronation.
“She has by my count three minions following her — that’s minions in her view — following her, holding the dress or the train of her existent dress.
“I can see underwear, ok?
“I can see London, I see France, I see Chrissy’s underpants.
“Nobody shows underpants at the White House Correspondents Dinner, okay Chrissy?
“They just don’t do it.
“And nobody shows up with serfs to carry their train.
“Which there shouldn’t be on your White House Correspondents Dinner dress anyway because it’s barely a formal event.
I see Chrissy Tiegen’s underpants. And her smug elitism. https://t.co/ekCvLId63y

Kelly said Teigen’s grand entrance was “everything wrong with the elitism, the self-importance, the aggrandizement of this fake, stupid event.
“It just tells you everything you need to know,” Kelly added.
