In a recent press briefing amid the global coronavirus pandemic, Donald Trump chose to complain about being tested for the virus, saying that there was "nothing pleasant" about being swabbed, as People reports. "[It’s] not something I want to do every day, I can tell you that," he said. 

Trump's complaints did not sit well with Chrissy Teigen, who compared the test to her distressing experience of childbirth. "my vagina was ripped to my asshole giving birth to Luna. I had a vagasshole. fuck your swab pain," she tweeted.
