After 12 seasons, The Big Bang Theory is ending its impressive run. And, the CBS sitcom’s creator, Chuck Lorre, is making sure everyone knows how he feels about the Trump administration. In a recent episode’s “vanity card,” Lorre mocked White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and her Christian faith.
The “vanity card” is a personal statement Lorre flashes across the television screen immediately after the credits of each 30-minute episode. The popular show’s creator unapologetically criticized both Sanders’ appearance and her beliefs in his latest one. The “vanity card” read, “God told me he hasn’t spoken to Sarah Sanders since she was fourteen years old and praying for her skin to clear up. I have no reason to doubt him.” Lorre’s attack of Sanders probably stemmed from the recent comments she made during a sit-down with CBN News.
During the interview, the White House Press Secretary boldly proclaimed that God “wanted Donald Trump to become president.” She revealed to David Brody, CBN chief political analyst, “That’s why he’s there and I think he’s done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about.”
Sanders made the statement after Brody referenced Esther 4:14. The poignant verse reads, “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
Besides sharing her belief that Trump getting elected was due to God’s will, Sanders made other positive statements about her current boss.
“I would argue he’s the most conservative president that we’ve ever had,” she said. “You look at the judicial nominations alone. I think that will be one of the greatest legacies that the president has after his eight years in office is how he has completely remade the judiciary and started to stop this activist court that we’ve started to see over the last eight years.”
The daughter of retired minister and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee went on to add, “There’s a reason evangelicals are sticking with the president, and that’s because he’s delivered on all the things he said he would do.”
Sanders shared during the sit-down that her Christian faith helps her do her important job every day. The White House Press Secretary remarked, “The goal is to be the best version of who God created us and who he called us to be. Some days I do that better than others, but the goal is always to be open about my faith. I think it’s part of the reason it gives me a sense of calm when I’m in that room.”
Although she’s constantly mocked by the likes of Lorre and other liberals, Sanders told CBN News that she practices the Bible’s instruction to pray for one’s enemies. She stated, “There’s a reason that God calls us to pray for our enemies, and I think it’s to give us a better perspective and better understanding of who they are, maybe why they think the way that they do and I certainly would rather see more people get along than fighting.”
Unsurprisingly, this isn’t the first time Lorre has mocked and humiliated faith and conservatives. One of his “vanity cards” last year included a facetious “prayer” asking a God, in whom he reportedly doesn’t believe in, “to make thy presence known” on Election Day. The “Big Bang Theory” creator hoped the “fascist, hate-filled, fear-mongering, demagogic, truth-shattering” Trump administration he loathes would be compromised during the mid-term elections.
The “vanity card” read, “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 parietal lobes — either one, doesn’t really matter — I submissively ask that thy encourage voter turnout in that general election.” In a reference to the independent counselor spearheading the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, Lorre also pleaded with God to “please help Bob Mueller.”
Nowadays, Hollywood heavyweights seem to thrive on mocking Christians and their closely held faith. Strive to support television programs and movies that do the exact opposite and take a stand for Christ.
