It’s a tale as old as time: Some crusty guy owned himself when he tried going after Chrissy Teigen.
Jacob Wohl, the 20-year-old right wing conspiracy theorist known around Twitter for his tweet template ragging on “hipster coffee shops packed with liberals,” hosted a wild press conference on Thursday about his smear campaign against Robert Mueller. Wohl claims that Mueller sexually assaulted a woman named Carolyne Cass. (Wohl trying to spell out her name during the conference was a trip in itself.)
During the bizarrely comical press conference, Wohl and lobbyist Jack Burkman struggled to keep track of their story and constantly contradicted themselves. In one notable moment, Burkman called Wohl a “child prodigy who has eclipsed Mozart.”
Enter Chrissy Teigen: As this story was heating up earlier this week and Wohl was trending on Twitter, Chrissy Teigen asked for a rundown of what was going on.

Wohl, in a moment of very obvious maturity, responded on Thursday with a Google trends graph analyzing how many people were searching his name.
“I became more famous than you,” he said smugly. “That’s what happened.”
Except … that’s not really how it works.
“This is literally just a graph proving people had to google your dumbass to figure out who you are,” Teigen shot back.
Other people on Twitter were quick to throw their support behind Teigen.
