Left-wing filmmaker Rob Reiner — arguably known as much for his hatred of President Donald Trump as for his directing prowess — conflated "white evangelicals" with "white supremacists" in a Saturday Twitter post:
"Every elected Republican knows that this President is guilty of countless Impeachable offenses," Reiner wrote. "But they, along with many White Evangelicals & White Supremacists have made a pact with [Vladimir] Putin. But unlike a pact with the Devil, this one can be unsigned."
'Rob — you need professional help'
Reiner's tweet received over 37,000 likes as of Monday morning, however, a cursory review of the replies at the top of his feed reflect overwhelming disdain for the "All in the Family" alum's point of view:
- "Rob — you need professional help. You have become unhinged with [Trump Derangement Syndrome]."
- "OK boomer."
- "Hahahaha OMG this is hilarious! Keep it up #MAGA2020Landslide #TDS all the way."
- "We understand...too scared to leave it to the voters in 2020?"
- "Is there a psychiatrist in the House?"
- "The lights are on but nobody is home, Rob. Chill."
Oh, and there was a parting shot from Reiner's back-in-the-day TV father-in-law, Archie Bunker:

Reiner's Twitter feed of late contains what appear to be daily barbs tossed at Trump and his supporters, which isn't too surprising given the Hollywood heavyweight's behavior since Trump took office:
- Last year Reiner blamed the government shutdown on the GOP's "racism" and added that Republicans are "frightened to death of the browning of America."
- Reiner tweeted in 2017 that the "fight to save democracy" fromTrump "is now an all out war." He added a "treason" hashtag in the tweet focusing on Russian collusion.
- Reiner also claimed that year that Russian meddling in the election was "the greatest attack on this democracy since 1941" — meaning Japan's surprise bombing of Pearl Harbor.
- Just after the election, Reiner called Trump a "moron" and again said the U.S. was now "fighting the last big major battle since the Civil War."
- He also told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" months prior to the election that Trump's campaign success was partly due to "a lot of people who are racists" — which prompted co-host Joe Scarborough to reply, "Oh, my God. Did you just say that?"
