Chrissy Teigen wants to 'Make Trump's Birthday Great Again' — by shading him. Here's how.

Chrissy Teigen is no fan of Donald Trump, which is why her plan to "Make Trump's Birthday Great Again" had people like 👀.

In honor of the president's 72nd birthday, Teigen, her husband John Legend, and their two children, each chipped in a cool $72,000 for an unforgettable present: a massive donation to the American Civil Liberties Union.

Posting on Twitter, Teigen explained how you can get in on the gift as well.


Her post reads:

"John and I are outraged to see and hear the horror stories of immigrant families seeking asylum and refuge in America being ripped apart due to the inhumane policies of the Trump administration. These actions are cruel, anti-family and go against everything we believe this country should represent. The ACLU is committed to defending the rights and humanity of these vulnerable families. In addition to fighting for immigrants' rights, they're advocating for reproductive rights, voting rights, criminal justice reform, LGBT rights, 1st amendment rights and holding the Trump administration accountable whenever possible.

The President celebrates his 72nd birthday today. On this auspicious occasion, in order to Make Trump's Birthday Great Again, each member of our family has donated $72,000 to the ACLU.

If you would like to donate $7.20, $72, or whatever you like to the ACLU in honor of this blessed day, please go to www.aclu.com/72.

With love, Chrissy, John, Luna and Miles"





The ACLU does a lot of great work, and in the Trump era, they're more needed than ever.

The ACLU is fighting back against actions the administration has taken on asylum seekers at the southern border, they've taken the administration to court over the so-called Muslim ban, they're advocating for detained immigrants and asylum-seekers and their right to reproductive health care, they're making strong arguments against anti-LGBTQ discrimination, they're speaking out against unjust government surveillance, they're fighting against U.S. citizens being sent to other countries without due process — and so, so, so much more.

It's important to remember that the ACLU isn't a partisan organization, which is a good thing. The government must be held accountable by the people no matter who's in charge.

Earlier this month, a beluga whale caught the world's attention by playing fetch with a rugby ball thrown by South African researchers off the waters of Norway.

The adorable video has been watched over 20 million times, promoting people across the globe to wonder how the whale became so comfortable around humans.

It's believed that the whale, known as Hvaldimir, was at some point, trained by the Russian military and was either released or escaped.

Your first period is always a weird one. You know it's going to happen eventually, but you're not always expecting it. One day, everything is normal, then BAM. Puberty hits you in a way you can't ignore.

One dad is getting attention for the incredibly supportive way he handled his daughter's first period. "So today I got 'The Call,'" Maverick Austin started out a Facebook post that has now gone viral.

The only thing is, Austin didn't know he got "the call." His 13-year-old thought she pooped her pants. At that age, your body makes no sense whatsoever. It's a miracle every time you even think you know what's going on.

Plus-size women are in the majority. In America, 68% of women wear a size 14 or higher. Yet many plus-sized are ignored by the fashion industry. Plus-sized clothing is a $21 billion industry, however only one-fifth of clothing sales are plus-sized. On top of that, plus-sized women are often body shamed, further reinforcing that bigger body types are not mainstream despite the fact that it is common.

Plus-size fashion blogger Katie Sturino recently called out her body shamers. Sturino runs the blog, The 12ish Style, showing that plus-sized fashion isn't – and shouldn't be – limited to clothes that hide the body.

There is a strange right-wing logic that suggests when minorities fight for equal rights it's somehow a threat to the rights already held by those in the majority or who hold power.

Like when the Black Lives Matter movement started, many on the right claimed that fighting for black people to be treated equally somehow meant that other people's lives were not as valuable, leading to the short-lived All Lives Matter movement.

This same "oppressed majority" logic is behind the new Straight Pride movement which made headlines in August after its march through the streets of Boston.
