After Biden took over from outgoing president Donald Trump on Wednesday, he also gained access to the POTUS Twitter account, which was given a complete blank slate in terms of followers and who is being followed.
Fans were quick to note that Biden follows just 12 people on Twitter – including his wife, First Lady Jill Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, members of his communications team – and Chrissy.
Reacting to the news, which was shared with her thanks to a fan’s screenshot, Chrissy wrote: “OH MY GOD !!!!!!!!”
The Lip Sync Battle star also revealed she was relieved to be able to see Biden’s tweets, after her spat with Trump – during which he called her “foul-mouthed” – led to her being blocked by the POTUS account.
“my heart oh my god lmao (laughing my a*s off) I can finally see the president’s tweets and they probably won’t be unhinged,” Chrissy continued.
Earlier that day, she reached out to Biden via his personal Twitter account asking for a follow.
“hello @joebiden I have been blocked by the president for four years can I get a follow plz (sic),” she wrote.
Chrissy was in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday to accompany her husband John Legend, who performed a cover of Nina Simone’s Feeling Good for the Celebrating America TV special that night.
And it was a vastly different experience for the presenter, who took to Instagram to share a shot of herself, John and their children on the Capitol steps, as she wrote alongside it: “Just incredible to be here. sober. I know that’s weird but it’s like…a different world for me. everything is new and better. very happy. the most happy bigly happy (sic).”
