Michelle Obama’s inclusion on Time’s list of the 100 most influential people was met with some grumbling from conservatives, but it paled in comparison to the hit job Fox News host Laura Ingraham had in store for fellow honoree Chrissy Teigen.
During Wednesday’s episode of The Ingraham Angle, the conservative TV personality took aim at Teigen, whom she described as being “known for her vicious attacks on President Trump.” She also mocked the cookbook author’s qualifications for being on the Time 100 list, dead-panning that liking to eat was “innovative.”

Ingraham seemed the most upset, however, over Teigen’s politics and potty mouth.
“Did most Americans like her take on female empowerment during last week’s Democrat retreat?” she asked, before rolling clips in which Teigen suggested saying “f*** you” in response to the current state of the world, and noted that it’s “possible to be really angry all the time.”
Word of Ingraham’s attack made its way back to Teigen, who was less than impressed. If the Fox News host was offended by the model’s language before, she’s probably not going to like her latest tweets.
Teigen responded by calling Ingraham a “corny monster,” then referenced the host’s past controversies over race — most recently, her coverage of the death of Nipsey Hussle —by tweeting that she was likely to end up on a list of the “100 most influential white supremacists.”
Corny monster. There were 1 million other ways to try and take me down and this is what you choose? Fuck you. 😁 https://t.co/wETBvafAzo— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) April 18, 2019
when time comes out with their 100 most influential white supremacists list, I promise I won’t question your worthiness, @IngrahamAngle— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) April 18, 2019
Ingraham has not yet responded to Teigen’s comments. The Lip Sync Battle star’s fans, in the meantime, are on the edge of their seats.

I really don't understand why you get so much hate! You're hilarious and so nice. People are insane. And 'naughty word'? What are we, five?— omasha (@nusratjmaliha) April 18, 2019
How dare the people at Time select someone who is relatable to most people. Someone who cooks, and takes care of her house, has a sense of humor and is compassionate, and speaks her mind, sometimes unfiltered.— Tayler (@unstable789) April 18, 2019
Laura is upset they didn’t have more 1-dimensional people like her.
