Following Donald Trump’s announcement that he’ll be holding the “Most Dishonest and Corrupt Media Awards of the Year” on Monday, Chrissy Teigen — who was notoriously blocked by the reality show star turned president on Twitter — came forward to jokingly volunteer to serve as the host of the show’s (nonexistent) red carpet.


The president has yet to accept her offer — or provide additional information about how his awards show will play out. In terms of timing and attention, it’ll have to compete with Sunday’s Golden Globes.

“Excited to host the red carpet LIVE at ‘The Most Dishonest and Corrupt Media Awards’!!!” Teigen, who is the host of Lip Sync Battle, tweeted on Wednesday. “Be sure to tune in!!”


The 32-year-old model went as far as to share what she’ll wear on the carpet, accidentally merging the names of designers Jean-Paul Gaultier and John Galliano.


When Stephen Colbert joked to Anderson Cooper that he would see him on the red carpet at #TheFakies (the late-night host hopes to be nominated in every category and even bought a “For Your Consideration” billboard), Teigen informed the men that she is “hosting the red carpet” and welcomed  them to “stop at my mani cam!!!”


She even found a hater to do her makeup.


Teigen, who is expecting her second child with hubby John Legend, is not a fan of the current president and makes that clear on social media. That got the Cravings author blocked by Trump on Twitter in July. (What had she written? As a response to one of his tweets, she posted, “no one likes you.”)

As a core member of the Celebrities Disliked by the Trumps Club, Teigen was happy to welcome apparent newcomer Ellen DeGeneres — who Trump’s son Eric said was part of the “Deep State,” along with Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama — on Thursday.  “Welcome to the club!” Teigen tweeted. “Orientation is at 6.”


Maybe DeGeneres can help wrangle talent for the mani cam.
