It is nothing new to report that a significant number of the denizens of Hollywood and the rest of the entertainment industry have little love for President Donald Trump, nor is it new to report that some of them are so consumed by their hatred that they suffer from what has become known as “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”
However, every once in a while a member of the Hollywood elite will display their TDS so overtly that everyone must take a step back in wonder and worry, both for that individual’s sanity and for the state of political discourse in this nation as a whole.
The creator and producer of the hit CBS sitcom “The Big Bang Theory,” Chuck Lorre, has made his great dislike for the president known previously and once again displayed his distaste for all of the program’s viewers to see quite clearly.
Newsbusters reported that following the conclusion of the episode that aired on Jan. 3, a highly political vanity card written by Lorre appeared among the program’s credits. It referred to the president as a “gangster” and insinuated that Trump would have broken laws or even started a nuclear war over the holiday season.
The card read: “I am writing this vanity card on December 15th. If all goes as planned, you are reading it on January 3rd. Since I have no idea what the Gangster-in-Chief might do between now and then, I thought I’d express my outrage now.
“My pre-outrage if you will. Let’s call it anticipatory disgust. Or being aghast in advance. The point is I’m trying to get ahead of my inevitable indignation,” Lorre continued.
“This way, regardless of what law is broken, or which murderous dictator gets a pass, I’ll have already vented. Of course, if he nukes Pyongyang or Toronto in order to distract from impeachment chatter, I reserve the right to be upset.”
Lorre used phrases such as “pre-outrage” and spoke of his “anticipatory disgust” and “inevitable indignation” toward unknown things that Trump may or may not have even done, revealing his deep-seated animus and bias against the president.
Indeed, Lorre showed the entire nation that he is a hate-filled individual who doesn’t care about what has actually happened, but remains firm in his opposition to Trump on principle alone, for things that might occur at some point in the future.
Furthermore, despite all of the talk from the left over the past two years, there isn’t a single law that any of them can proveably point to as having been broken by Trump, and the talk about granting a “pass” to murderous dictators is pretty rich coming from supporters of former President Barack Obama, who cozied up to such murderous dictators as the mullahs in Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood-installed leader of Egypt, among others.
As for the notion that Trump would start a nuclear Armageddon by bombing Pyongyang or Toronto — when he has been explicitly working with North Korea to prevent such an occurrence — merely to distract from impeachment talk is just downright insane.
Democrats and the media have been muttering about impeachment since before Trump even took his Oath of Office, and that chatter hasn’t compelled him to launch a nuclear apocalypse before, so why would anyone think it would result in such a reaction now?
This is not the first time that Lorre has made his hatred for Trump readily apparent to viewers, as he has a habit of using vanity cards to share politicized messages at the end of his show. One recent example occurred a little more than a week prior to the midterm elections.
In what can only be described as a sickening parody of a prayer, Lorre referred to the president as a “fascist, hate-filled, fear-mongering, demagogic, truth-shattering, autocratic golf cheater,” and beseeched God to rain down “Old Testament wrath” on the president’s supporters.
Sadly, as insane as Lorre’s broadsides against the president and his supporters may seem, they are not alone or isolated, as his deep animus and constant state of outrage is shared by far too many folks on the left, as well as even some on the nominal right, like the remaining Never Trumpers.
To be sure, it is entirely understandable that people on the ideological left would oppose President Trump’s agenda and policies — indeed, that is normal and to be expected — but the overtly personal hatred of the man, above and beyond his agenda and policies, has taken things way too far into dangerous territory, and sets a disturbing precedent that the left won’t like if circumstances were to ever to reverse themselves in the future.
