After being blocked by the president on Twitter for years during Donald Trump’s term, Chrissy Teigen was followed by Joe Biden's @POTUS account after his inauguration.
Teigen, who was in Washington, DC, with husband John Legend and their children during the inauguration, tweeted on Wednesday morning, “hello @joebiden I have been blocked by the president for four years can I get a follow plz.”
Later that night, Teigen became one of the 12 users followed by the account, alongside mainly people in the White House, like first lady Jill Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield.
The White House Director of Digital Strategy Rob Flaherty then tweeted the “How it started vs. How it’s going” meme along with a screenshot of Teigen’s request for @POTUS to follow her and a screenshot of the list of who he follows.
“my heart oh my god lmao I can finally see the president’s tweets and they probably won’t be unhinged,” she tweeted in response. “I should prob never tweet again.”
Legend performed during the Celebrating America special on Wednesday night, and according to Teigen’s social accounts, they arrived on Tuesday for rehearsal. Teigen also shared a series of photos with members of the National Guard, from the National Mall, and in front of the Lincoln Memorial.
In a lengthy Instagram caption, Teigen wrote about how happy she was that Trump was leaving office, saying, “History will not be kind to you, you absolute psychopath. But I never was anyhow.”
“today our great national fuckup is over, but the shame will last forever. with 2 impeachments, the creation of 3 million LESS jobs, 403,000 dead, a record low approval rating and god knows how many crimes, we can officially say Donald J Trump is the greatest at being the fucking worst,” Teigen wrote. “Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea to have the guy with barely enough well done steak with ketchup fueled brainpower to power a lightbulb who doesn’t even know how to close an umbrella run the country.”
In July 2017, Trump blocked Teigen after she tweeted at him "Lolllll no one likes you."
