Extra points if you guessed Big Bang Theory co-creator Chuck Lorre would devote that CBS comedy’s final vanity card before Election Day to the White House Race. In it, Lorre dismissed Donald Trump’s Make America Great Again campaign cry, calling it a “bumper sticker for victimhood.”
Here is his message:
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.
Lorre’s well known for using his vanity card to espouse his positions on various subjects. It’s not the first time he’s used it to talk about the head-smacking presidential race. A couple cards earlier, for instance, he had this heartfelt message:
A Nonpartisan, Nondenominational Prayer for America
God, please make this election be over soon.
