READ: Chrissy Teigen Responds to Eric Trump: ‘Ours Too, Finally Something in Common!’

Preach.

In an interview with Westchester Magazine, Eric Trump, the son of President Donald Trump, said his father’s quality of life declined upon deciding to run for president.

“My father’s life became exponentially worse the minute he decided to run for president,” Eric Trump told the magazine. “He didn’t need to do this, but he was immensely frustrated with where the country was going.”

Every day, you get abused by somebody,” he continued. “And the next thing you know, you’re being parodied on Saturday Night Live. It comes with the territory. We stood center stage with my father during the campaign and beyond.”

Despite his misgivings, Eric Trump said that “there would be far fewer headaches if it weren’t for politics” but that he felt it was worth it because the Trumps are “in it for the right reasons.”

But his statements didn’t go over well after The Hill tweeted out a snippet from the interview.

At this point, model (and noted Trump family critic) Chrissy Teigen decided to weigh in with, “ours too! finally, something in common.”

Teigen has never been a fan of President Donald Trump or his policy proposals. In the past, she criticized him for his tempestuous nature, his off-the-cuff statements, and his history of racially charged statements. Some of these criticisms go back several years, well before he ever launched a presidential campaign.

Donald Trump never appeared to reply to Teigen directly, but it seems she did, at some point, strike a nerve. The president blocked her from viewing his tweets in July 2017.

Teigen is far from the only individual the president has blocked on the social media platform. Last night, the president and one of his top aides appealed a federal court ruling that said the president was violating the constitutional rights of individuals he has blocked from viewing his personal Twitter feed. Last month, U.S. District Court Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald ruled that Twitter “serves as a designated public forum,” noting that the president has used his personal Twitter account to issue official statements on behalf of the White House.
