Spicer claimed that the ad, which was aired during President Biden’s CNN town hall on Thursday, “falsely claimed” that voting rights were under attack.

“100% not true. Every citizen has the ability to vote in person or absentee in every state,” Spicer tweeted.

“Every citizen finds you very believable, Sean,” Legend tweeted in response.

“Trump had the hugest inauguration audience of all time and you’re a fantastic dancer,” Legend tweeted, poking fun at Spicer’s time on “Dancing With the Stars.”

Teigen then responded “Save this kind of gold for the TRUMP TRUTH TWITTER,” referring to the former president’s planned new social media platform.

“Nice to hear from you @chrissyteigen and @johnlegend,” Spicer responded on Friday. “My new book #RadicalNation has a chapter on voting rights and explains why you’re wrong, DM me and I’ll send you a copy. John can have one too.”

Democrats have been scrambling to pass federal voting rights legislation as GOP-led states advance measures that critics say restrict access to the ballot box.

Earlier this week, Let America Vote and End Citizens United unveiled a 30-second ad featuring Legend that urges Congress to pass the Freedom to Vote Act, Democrats’ revised bill on overhauling federal elections.

Senate Democrats failed to get 60 votes needed to overcome a filibuster on the measure on Wednesday, the latest blow to their efforts to pass voting rights reform.

“I always protect my voice, It’s how I make my living. And you and I make a country with our voices. Your vote is your voice,” Legend says in the ad.

“But more than ever, our freedom to vote is under attack,” he continues. “So please, call Congress: tell them to pass the Freedom to Vote Act, to protect our ability to have our say on the issues that matter most. So let’s pass the Freedom to Vote Act, and protect all our voices.”

URGENT message from John Legend: your vote is your voice – and it must be protected. Share our new video and then call your Senators and demand they pass the Freedom to Vote Act! #DontMuteOurVote pic.twitter.com/fnomwbvrMD
