Chrissy Teigen wants to 'Make Trump's Birthday Great Again' β€” 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 πŸ‘€.

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 β€” 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.

Why should a superintendent get a raise while teachers in the same district struggling to make ends meet see their paychecks flatline β€” year after year after year?

Teacher Deyshia Hargrave begged the question. Minutes later, she was handcuffed and placed in the backseat of a cop car.

The scene was captured below by YouTube user Chris Rosa, who attended a board meeting for Vermilion Parish Schools in Louisiana.

You can watch Hargrave begin speaking about 33 seconds in. The situation starts becoming contentious around 6:35 minutes. Hargrave is arrested at 8:35, and then walked outside in handcuffs and placed in the back of police vehicle. (Story continues below.)



"We work very hard with very little to maintain the salaries that we have," Hargrave, who teaches middle school language arts, said during a public comment portion of the meeting, stating that she's seen classroom sizes balloon during her time at the school with no increased compensation. "We're meeting those goals, while someone in that position of leadership [the superintendent] is getting raise? It's a sad, sad day to be a teacher in Vermilion Parish."
