Shade thrown. Chrissy Teigen likened Donald Trump to American Psycho character Patrick Bateman in a tweet on Friday, August 26.
“Watching a cool Donald Trump biopic on the plane,” she captioned a photo of a screen with the movie’s title displayed across the bottom. From the picture, it appeared as though Teigen, 30, was not yet 10 minutes into the film.
She followed up her first tweet with another quip: “Well I didn’t wanna admit it but Patrick Bateman has a way better card than any of these non-murderers.” (The scene the Sports Illustrated swimsuit supermodel references involves Bateman, played by Christian Bale, showing off his business card alongside other shrewd businessmen. In the 2000 film, the Oscar-winning actor, 42, plays a wealthy, materialistic Wall Street yuppie who is also a brutal serial killer.)
Teigen’s fans instantly recognized her reference and responded with their own slew of witty comments.
I thought Paul Allen’s was best tbh and he can get a table at Dorsia. I need to return some video tapes….

The new mom’s snide political commentary comes one day after she and Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman had a lovefest on Twitter. Teigen made the first move, telling Raisman, 22: “I don’t want to seem forward but I feel like we would be friends please? We love you!”
Raisman replied excitedly, “OMG YES. I love u and ur husband. Can we please be best friends & can I send ur daughter some of my leotards?”
Teigen’s husband, John Legend, has been outspoken about his distaste for the Republican presidential candidate in the past, calling Trump “racist” in March after the real estate mogul’s son criticized protesters who shut down his father’s Chicago rally.
