A message aired at the end of CBS’ latest episode of The Big Bang Theory referring to President Donald Trump as “a fascist, hate-filled, fear-mongering, demagogic, truth-shattering, autocratic golf cheater.”

Chuck Lorre, creator of The Big Bang Theory, slammed President Trump on a “vanity card” message to “God” at the end of the episode.

“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,” the message read.

The message continued:

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.

Lorre has previously used the end-of-show vanity card to get political. On the week of Trump’s Inauguration, Lorre aired a vanity card with George Harrison lyrics warning of “greedy leaders.”

Stars from the hit CBS sitcom have repeatedly voiced their left-wing opinions. Actress Mayim Bialik told her fans in February to defeat politicians who don’t support gun control.

“Make it your life’s goal to support and vote for every single person who challenges a politician with NRA money behind them.” Bialik said.

Another actor in the show, Johnny Galecki, said that the American “political system is broken” in an Instagram post following Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.
