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 (opens in new tab). "[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.

Teigen shared more brutal details from the aftermath of childbirth, writing, "they had to put a garbage bag at the end of the bed to collect my blood before stiching me up, where I then had to pee using a water bottle as a pain fountain for 3 months. so yeah. the swab, I bet it’s super rough."

Finally, Teigen went on to share a blunt truth about a picture perfect moment. Retweeting a photo of herself, husband John Legend, and baby Luna on her chest, she added some visceral perspective: "yep I had one giant vagasshole here."
