Chrissy Teigen — who was blocked on Twitter by POTUS — isn’t the only Trump critic in the family. John Legend teared into the president in a new TMZ video filmed outside a West Hollywood nightclub on Tuesday night.

The EGOT-winning star called Donald Trump a “flaming racist.”

“He’s a piece of s**t,” he continued, adding that Trump himself uses the profanity. “We need to get him out of office.”

Legend appeared to reference Trump’s comments about Baltimore — which the president slammed as a “disgusting, rat- and rodent-infested mess” last week — as a TMZ employee asked the singer what could be done.
