I’d probably assume he/she would become President. They’ve seen their current President do much worse on a debate stage. Including bragging about his dick size. https://t.co/q2EnCA6wYo

Seriously they do not hold back and that’s why we love them (or maybe you hate them, but really you should love them). But Legend and Teigen aren’t just tweeting about and talking about political issues they’re putting their money where their mouths are.
The famous couple just donated $25,000 to March For Our Lives, a gun reform movement organized by the survivors of the Parkland school shooting.
“We support the students,” Legend said while promoting Jesus Christ Superstar. “We’re proud of the students. We’ve already sent them money. We sent them $25,000 to help with whatever costs they have for organizing, and we believe that our gun culture needs to change in America.”

Legend went on to talk about gun violence and culture in America and how it compares to other major countries in the world, “I don’t think we should accept this as normal.”
“I don’t want our kids to keep going to these shooter drills, and all these other things that I can’t even believe kids are dealing with right now,” he continued. “They shouldn’t have to deal with that. But I’m glad these kids from Parkland are saying enough is enough, and we support them.”
Legend and Teigen aren’t the only celebs to donate big bucks to March for Our Lives. George and Amal Clooney donated $500,000 and then Oprah matched them and then Gucci did the same and donated $500,000.
