Charley Gallay/Getty Images for WGN AmericaJohn Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, have consistently opposed President Trump, and now they’ve revealed that Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren is their choice for The White House in 2020.
“She’s the best candidate running today and she comes at it with joy and with sincerity and with a wealth of knowledge and experience.” Legend tells Vanity Fair.
The ten-time Grammy winner acknowledges that many men wouldn’t support a woman for president.
“Honestly, I don’t comprehend why guys hate women so much sometimes,” Legend says. “You see someone as transparently competent and eloquent and on fire as Elizabeth Warren and then you hear some guys just are not into voting for a woman,” Legend says.
John and Chrissy believe that President Trump is threatened by powerful females. In September, Trump tweeted that the couple were trying to take credit for criminal justice reforms, calling Legend a “boring musician” and Teigen “his filthy mouthed wife.”
“We know this president has a particular aversion to strong women coming after him, particularly women of color,” Legend says. “So he had to call her out. Every time he does something like this, he just makes himself look more terrible. I don’t know that that incrementally convinces anyone not to vote for him, but he just proves himself to be a sh***y human being every day.”
As Legend and Teigen follow the Trump impeachment hearings, Chrissy says the president deserves to serve time behind bars.
“I think there needs to be jail time for him, for the whole family,” says Teigen. “I feel like he still gets away with everything if he gets out of his office. I know that his first tweet after he’s impeached will be, ‘I didn’t want to be there anyway.’”
