“The Big Bang Theory” co-creator Lorre ripped into Donald Trump’s presidential campaign on Thursday, offering a two-word response to Trump’s campaign — and those two words definitely weren’t “good job.”
In the vanity card accompanying Thursday’s episode of the CBS sitcom, Lorre slammed Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again,” calling it a “bumper sticker for victimhood.”
“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,” Lorre wrote in a message to the 13.9 million viewers who tuned in to Thursday night’s episode.
Lorre’s basic gist was that America is populated by self-starters who are perfectly capable of lifting themselves up.
Lorre peppered his message with a barrage of profanity, albeit censored.
“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,” Lorre wrote. “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.”
Lorre’s rant concluded, “You want to know what makes America great? I got two words for you.”
It’s uncertain what effect Lorre’s jeremiad will have on Trump supporters — “The Big Bang Theory” does, after all, revolve around science. But still — pretty powerful message…

"I shocked my staff today ... I said, 'You know what? As far as the Republicans are concerned, I hope Trump wins on the Republican side." -Jesse Ventura
Ventura isn't a Trump flip-flopper, because he's been upfront all along about the fact that he's an independent who doesn't want the Republican or Democrat to win in the general election. He supports Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson.
