TV producer Chuck Lorre ends all his sitcoms with a message card flashed across the screen for a split second. And this week’s flash card contains Lorre’s prayer that God would kill all Americans who voted for or support Donald Trump.
Lorre’s flash card serves as the logo for his production company placed at the end of every episode he produces. Sometimes they are funny, sometimes they are political. But this time Lorre has gone too far wishing for Americans to die.
The card was caught by Newsbusters:

Chuck Lorre Productions, #598
God, (I call you that even though I suspect thou art well beyond names and words and might actually be some sort of ineffable quantum situation), I humbly beseech thee to make thy presence known on November 6th. Demonstrate your omnipotence through us as we make ink marks on little circles in curtained booths. Of course if you, in your divine wisdom, believe a fascist, hate-filled, fear-mongering, demagogic, truth-shattering, autocratic golf cheater is what we need right now, then, you know, thy will be done. But if thou art inclined to more freedom, more love, more compassion, and just more of the good stuff thou hath been promoting in our hearts or our parietal lobes – either one, doesn’t really matter – I submissively ask that thy encourage voter turnout in that general direction. Also God, please help Bob Mueller. Guide him and make him strong, brave, wise and true. And yes, I know there must be thousands of guys named Bob Mueller, so why not help them all, just to be on the safe side. Amen.
Oh, almost forgot, remind those who collaborate with the darkness that thou art the light, and the light is not above whipping out a little Old Testament wrath. Amen again.
This title card comes at the end of the latest episode of the CBS hit The Big Bang Theory, a show now in its last season.
According to Newsbusters:
The vanity card does not mention Donald Trump by name, though it leaves nothing to the imagination that he is the “fascist, hate-filled, fear-mongering, demagogic, truth-shattering, autocratic golf cheater” Lorre is referring to. It also suggests that Trump cannot be one who promotes “more freedom, more love, more compassion, and just more of the good stuff…”
October 25 was not the first time Lorre used the show to spout off against Trump in the vanity cards, although not by name. In vanity card #541 from November 3, 2016, Lorre mocked the “Make America Great Again” slogan as “a bumper sticker for victimhood” and said “Big Daddy can’t save us. Our salvation lies within ourselves,” adding more irony to how in the more recent vanity card, he would call upon God.
Lorre’s vanity card #559 from May 4, 2017 mocked The Apprentice’s ratings, as if television ratings had anything to do with foreign policy achievements. “Defeat terrorism and crazy dictators? He couldn’t even defeat Two and a Half Men,” the vanity card read, appearing alongside a chart of that week’s ratings.
There was also vanity card #551 from February 9, 2017, a mock executive order, which claimed Trump regards the truth as “what I say it is, or need it to be,” and also mentioned “mean tweet[s]” and “fake news.”
Lorre has long had a penchant for going after Republicans and their policies, in ranting and bizarre manners. Back in 2012, 5 days before the presidential election, he pointed viewers to an uncensored vanity card on his website where he went off about guns and gay marriage and called Mitt Romney “a guy who doesn’t drink, doesn’t smoke, keeps his money offshore, stubs his toe and says ‘H-E-double hockey sticks’ and wears magical underwear.”
These are all bad enough, of course. But now, with Lorre wishing death on Americans just because they don’t vote his way? That is such a perfect example of why liberals are what’s wrong with this nation.
