Remember last fall when “Big Bang Theory” producer Chuck Lorre sneaked a prayer into the end title card for the Oct. 25th show (right before the midterm elections) that read, in part:
… 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. … Also God, please help Bob Mueller. Guide him and make him strong, brave, wise and true. … Amen.
We weren’t amused when we read it last October, but now, the invocation for God to help and guide the strong, brave, wise, and true Bob Mueller is kind of a hoot.
Now it looks like CBS All-Access show “The Good Fight” managed to sneak in a little Easter egg for those paying close attention. The show tweeted a list and asked if anyone caught the target words. This apparently wasn’t the answer they were looking for, but the first three words in the first column just happened to be “Assassinate President Trump.”
Last week: CBS crime drama The Good Fight tweeted an image that included the phrases “Assassinate President Trump” and “Eliminate Mar-a-Lago.” pic.twitter.com/YcHyIUDuqK

It’s been deleted, but come on. Who thought this was at all a good idea, let alone a moral one? Oh wait, this is Hollywood. How did morals get in there?
Threatening the life of President @realDonaldTrump is not only despicable, it’s a felony.
I hope the Secret Service investigates this. https://t.co/jLNvXH9iIm

I posted days ago about the horrible way The Good Fight goes after Trump & it should be off the air for sure. #TheGoodFightNoMore

They know exactly what they're doing. And should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Along with all the others.

I didn't vote for the guy, I don't particularly like the guy, but this is really disgusting.

This is just sad how far people will go to destroy America. Not just the President. Just a sad day for America.

So a lot of these threats are to right wing voters/supporters. That is disgusting.

But this is just a harmless joke, while every time someone says “some people did something” it’s considered an incitement to kill Rep. Ilhan Omar. And as recently as 2017, The New York Times was still reporting the debunked claim that Sarah Palin’s “crosshairs” electoral map got Gabby Giffords shot.

“Assasinate the President” and “Eliminate Mar-a-Lago” do not incite violence, but “We will never forget” does? The Democrats have truly lost their sanity in their quest for power.

Easy, pull CBS' FCC Broadcast license pending a review.

They are deranged. Unfortunately some of their followers have already acted on these calls for violence against the Trump Administration and his supporters.

If ANY successful Conservative leaning show even made a joke in poor taste to towards anything the left hold dear, it would be demanded to be canceled and boycotted. (i.e. Rosanne). Hope the writers of Last Man Standing don't offend the left too far!

Just canceled my @CBS subscription. I seem to be cancelling many of my media subscriptions and am seeking alternative forms of entertainment. I got lectured enough as a kid, I don't need to get it from the people who are supposed to be entertaining me. No $$$ for you anymore!

Apology forthcoming? Doesn’t look like it. CBS declined to comment to Fox News for its story on the tweet.
