Teigen recently took it upon herself to speak out against any attempt to equate charges made against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump with charges against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Last month, a lawsuit brought against Trump alleged that he raped a 13-year-old girl, and the FBI discovered new emails related to Clinton’s controversial private server.
The model-turned-political-commentator shut down the twisted logic parroted by some of Trump’s supporters that claims Clinton’s alleged misdeeds are the most problematic between the two candidates.
“’OK so he is going to trial for child rape but she...’ WHAT. THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE GONNA SAY AFTER THE WORD ‘SHE.’ REALLY THINK,” Teigen tweeted. “BECAUSE WHATEVER COMES AFTER THE WORD ‘SHE’ MUST BE WORSE THAN CHILD RAPE TO YOU.”
The woman who came forward about her teenage rape is the 13th person to accuse Trump of sexual assault in recent weeks. Trump and his team have categorically denied her allegations, labelling them as “unfounded” and a “hoax.”
When one of Teigen’s followers pressed her about whether she thinks Clinton is “evil” as well, the “Lip Sync Battle” host reminded them that supervillains typically don’t spend their free time giving back to the community.
“Seriously? She is not evil,” Teigen wrote. “She has spent most of her life helping others, devoted to public service. Don’t be dramatic and insane.”
Dramatic and insane? In this election?!
