Chrissy Teigen, an American model who has been an ardent critic of Donald Trump, is apparently overjoyed after she was blocked by the President on Twitter.

Teigen tweeted that she had spent nearly a decade “hating” on the President, and remarked that the final straw for Mr Trump was rather mild as far as internet trolling goes.

“After 9 years of hating Donald J Trump, telling him “‘’ol no one likes you’ was the straw,” Teigen wrote on Twitter, with a picture of a message showing she had been blocked.

Teigen, who is married to Grammy and Academy Award Winner John Legend, usually tweets to her fans with pictures of her daughter. But, on occasion, she’ll send out a sarcastic jab at Mr Trump.

Her Twitter bio, updated earlier this month, says she is a “high-quality person” — an apparent reference to the way in which Mr Trump described his son, Donald Trump Jr, amid a scandal showing that he had facilitated a meeting with Russian sources during the campaign to dig up dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Teigen hasn’t held back in the past.

“You are 71 f****** years old. Grow. The f***. Up,” she tweeted last month in response to a tweet from Mr Trump claiming that the New York Times is “a Fake News Joke!”

“I HAVE VERY LITTLE TIME FOR TWITTER,” she tweeted this month in response to Mr Trump’s claim, on Twitter, that he has very little time to watch television even though he had tweeted about television earlier that morning.

Mr Trump had tweeted that morning to defend Mr Trump Jr, and claimed that his White House was “functioning perfectly,” even though media reports had indicated that staffers in the West Wing were scrambling to respond to those emails detailing the meeting with Russian sources.

Those emails have reverberated throughout Washington. In them, Mr Trump Jr is shown eagerly setting up a meeting with a Russian lawyer and several other individuals — Mr Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner and former Campaign Manager Paul Manafort were also in attendance — hoping to get damaging information from Russian sources as a part of the Kremlin’s interest in supporting Mr Trump.

The White House has denied any wrongdoing in the taking of that meeting. Mr Trump has also said that there was nothing wrong with taking the meeting, and has said that any other campaign would have taken the meeting as well.
