Emily Ratajkowski Says Chrissy Teigen and Donald Trump Have One Thing in Common

Power Women Summit: Ratajkowski, a master of social media, gives others credit

Chrissy Teigen and Donald Trump probably don’t agree on much, but Emily Ratajkowski says the two have  one thing in common.

(Sorry, Chrissy!)

“Let’s think about Trump for a moment — he’s really good at social media, he’s made the media sort of have to catch up, and I would love to see that from the left,” Ratajkowski said at TheWrap’s Power Women Summit in Los Angeles on Friday. “As women, we can do that so well. Chrissy Teigen, for example, doesn’t have to talk to a reporter, she is just there responding to things on her Twitter from her couch. That’s inspiring — we can all do that.”

She added that everyone’s goal on social should be to be “as honest as possible, and as authentic — that’s what Trump and Chrissy Teigen have in common — and they don’t have a whole lot in common!”

Teigen has been a strong critic of the president on social media, which resulted in Teigen being blocked by Trump in July 2017. But it was one of her tamer tweets that finally sent Trump over the edge.

“Lolllllll no one likes you,” she tweeted in response to a Trump tweet that some Republicans “do very little to protect their President.”

Teigen recently said the presidential blocking has given her anxiety because every day in America pretty much begins with a “flurry of presidential” tweets that she can’t see. When Teigen sees people responding to them and freaking out over things Trump tweeted, she has no idea what everyone is talking about. “Do I get in the bunker or not?” she said.

Ratajkowski attended TheWrap’s Power Women Summit, the largest gathering ever assembled of the most influential women in entertainment and media, attended and supported by studios, news organizations and non-profits across the entertainment industry landscape. It is presented by the WrapWomen Foundation, a division of TheWrap News.
