“Big Bang Theory” producer Chuck Lorre is no fan of President Donald Trump or Republicans — and that has never been clearer than it is now.

The latest episode of the popular sitcom snuck in a vanity message during its end credits that called the president a “fascist, hate-filled, fear-mongering, demagogic, truth-shattering, autocratic golf cheater” — and urged people to head to the polls for the upcoming midterm elections.

The message from Lorre also urges “God” to “make thy presence known on” Election Day.

“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,” read the message.

It continued, “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.”

Lorre has become famous for the various vanity messages he puts into the end credits of his shows. Past messages have been inserted into shows such as “Young Sheldon” and “Two and a Half Men” and have targeted Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan and ratings for the president’s previous reality show, “The Apprentice.”

Lorre has written for and produced such massive comedy successes as “Mom,” “Grace Under Fire,” “Mike & Molly,” and “Dharma & Greg.”

“The Big Bang Theory” is arguably his biggest success. The series is one of the most popular on television and has aired over 260 episodes. It is currently in its final season, but the series has already inspired a successful spinoff in CBS’ “Young Sheldon.”

Lorre has had public feuds with many creators who have worked with him, including Charlie Sheen and Roseanne Barr.

Barr has revealed over the years that she fired Lorre from her own show “Roseanne” in the ’90s — and she later turned down a guest spot on “Two and a Half Men” because she disliked working with the man so much.

She also said in 2013 she would even turn down an offer to appear on the popular “Big Bang Theory” simply because of Lorre’s involvement.

“I probably wouldn’t go on ‘The Big Bang’ because me and Chuck Lorre, we’re not friends,” she told toofab in 2013.
