Viewers who watched Thursday night’s episode of The Big Bang Theory to the very end saw a message about White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.
Lorre, a frequent critic of President Trump, was not complimentary. His comment referenced an interview that Sanders gave on the Christian Broadcasting Network’s show Faith Nation, on Jan. 30.
Lorre’s latest message 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.”
CBS did not immediately respond to Yahoo’s request for comment.
An archive of more than 600 so-called vanity cards that Chuck Lorre Productions has used over the years, on his shows including Mom, Two and a Half Men, Dharma and Greg and Mike and Molly, are often like mini diary entries. He talks about politics in some others too, but he also cracks jokes, offers a behind-the-scenes peek at his shows and gives shout-outs to his family.
But he is especially known for taking the opportunity to slam Trump, which he memorably did in May 2017, when he pointed out that the highly rated The Big Bang Theory had bested The Apprentice in viewers. “Defeat terrorism and crazy dictators? He couldn’t even defeat ‘Two and a Half Men,’” Lorre captioned a ratings chart.
Lorre’s comments about Sanders upset Trump supporters, some of whom vowed to stop watching his shows.
Chuck lorre is trying to be relevant.

I’m proud to say I haven’t watch the Big Bang Theory for a few years. I hear Young Sheldon is funny, but I wouldn’t know; never seen it. Making fun of woman for their looks, faith, etc isn’t what I’d consider entertaining, or decent. Shame on you, Chuck.https://t.co/2JBMeacwaF

Wow, Chuck Lorre! Way to keep it classy by a attacking a woman like that. I thought we are trying to end bullying & discrimination as a society. How does Arielle feel about you attacking a woman? Is it ok because of your political side? Praying your ulcerative colitis clears up. pic.twitter.com/uaBM5ss37S

Lorre’s series also include Young Sheldon, a spinoff of the top-rated CBS comedy that also airs his vanity cards, and Netflix’s The Kominsky Method, which won the Golden Globe for best comedy series last month.
