Christie Brinkley has lashed out at Donald Trump’s election night speech in which he prematurely declared he had won, even though the 2020 presidential election race continues to go down to the wire.

The Sports Illustrated model, who is normally quite positive on social media and often treats her fans to age-defying swimsuit posts, instead took to her Instagram slamming the President’s appearance as the “ultimate lie” in an outraged post.

“Trump's ultimate lie … he says he won! And he hasn’t!” she wrote.

“He’s claiming victory before all the states ballots have been counted and called! We were told this was his plan but it’s still shocking.”

She went on to call the saga “un-amercian” and “un-democratic”.


"I bet even people that voted for him are apoplectic that he wants to stop our Democratic process and get the Supreme Court to stop counting the votes. This my friends is Un-American, Un-Democratic,” she said.

“And I would guess against the law! I think this is something that we can all agree on …Our vote is our sacred right and trying to stop our votes from being counted is a preposterous outrage!”

The Trump campaign has since fired off legal threats in all directions as counting continues in a handful of nail-biting state races. Pennsylvania, Nevada, Georgia and North Carolina still hang in the balance.

Other stars also took to social media after the late-night speech to share their thoughts.

"This is beyond dangerous what he’s doing right now," actor Patton Oswalt tweeted.

Charmed star Alyssa Milano had already warned earlier in the day Trump would likely claim an early win.

“Trump might claim that he won. If he does that, please remind yourself and others that politicians can say anything they want. It doesn't make it true,” she also said on Twitter.

Kathy Griffin also decided to repost her controversial photo with a fake Donald Trump severed head to Twitter in the middle of the President’s speech.
