Chuck Lorre Takes Another Shot at Trump in Latest Vanity Card
Prolific producer Chuck Lorre has taken another shot at President Trump.
The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men creator used Thursday's vanity card to taunt Trump about Celebrity Apprentice ratings.
The vanity card that aired Thursday after TV's No. 1 comedy The Big Bang Theory, featured a graphic (seen below) of TV ratings for March 6, 2006, that illustrated Lorre's Two and a Half Men topping Trump's The Apprentice in both the key adults 18-49 demo and total viewers. (What's more, short-lived sitcom Courting Alex also defeated the former NBC reality competition series.)
Lorre topped off the victory lap with this pointed tagline: "Defeat terrorism and crazy dictators? He couldn't even defeat 'Two and a Half Men.'"
This is the latest example of Lorre taking aim at Trump via one of his trademark vanity cards. In November, days ahead of the presidential election, Lorre didn't hold back when sharing his thoughts about the then-Republican candidate.
"Don't be fooled. Big Daddy can't save us. Our salvation lies within ourselves. Within our own ingenuity and determined effort. 'Make America great again' is a bumper sticker for victimhood. But we are not victims," he wrote. "We are the creators of opportunity. Sure the system's rigged. It always has been. So what?! We are a nation of immigrants who have consistently ignored the rigging. You won't let us join your club? %#&@ you, we'll start our own club. You won't let us go to your school? %#&@ you, we'll start our own school. You won't let us earn money your way? %#&@ you, we'll earn it our way. You won't give us a chance here? %#&@ you, we will go elsewhere. You want to know what makes America great? I got two words for you."
That followed another dig at the GOP that came days before the 2012 presidential election in which he specifically attacked the party's stance on gun control and same-sex marriage.
