Hollywood television executive Chuck Lorre hit out at President Donald Trump in a mock prayer that was debuted in recent "Big Bang Theory" credits.
Lorre, who is the creator behind hit shows like "The Big Bang Theory" and "Two and a Half Men," has been vocal in the past about his disdain for the Republican president.
What was in this 'prayer?'
The "prayer" — which was placed on what the industry calls a "vanity card" — appeared between the closing credits and the Warner Bros. logo during the Oct. 25 episode of “The Big Bang Theory.”
While the prayer doesn't specifically mention the president by name, it alludes to him through various rhetoric.
The "prayer" requests that God makes "[His] presence known" on Nov. 6 — which is Election Day.
God, (I call you that even though I suspect thou art well beyond names and words and might actually be some sort of ineffable quantum situation), I humbly beseech thee to make thy presence known on November 6th. Demonstrate your omnipotence through us as we make ink marks on little circles in curtained booths. Of course if you, in your divine wisdom, believe a fascist, hate-filled, fear-mongering, demagogic, truth-shattering, autocratic golf cheater is what we need right now, then, you know, thy will be done. But 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 our parietal lobes – either one, doesn’t really matter – I submissively ask that thy encourage voter turnout in that general direction. Also God, please help Bob Mueller. Guide him and make him strong, brave, wise and true. And yes, I know there must be thousands of guys named Bob Mueller, so why not help them all, just to be on the safe side. Amen. Oh, almost forgot, remind those who collaborate with the darkness that thou art the light, and the light is not above whipping out a little Old Testament wrath. Amen again.

Lorre has taken aim several other times in other vanity cards over the years.
In 2016's vanity card 541, Lorre mocked Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan.
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. 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.
In a 2017 vanity card, Lorre mocked a fake executive order "signed" by the president, in which Trump denounced himself as supreme leader of "fake news."
