‘The Big Bang Theory’ Rips Sarah Sanders During the Show’s Credits
CBS’s hit comedy, The Big Bang Theory is coming to the end of its 12th and final season. In the past, the show has used its closing credits for commentary on news and current events.
Much of the show’s messaging has been decidedly liberal, with references to Donald Trump and Robert Mueller. During Thursday’s show, the credits were used to mock White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Thursday night’s credit card read, “God told me he hasn’t spoken to Sarah Sanders since she was fourteen years old and praying for her skin to clear up. I have no reason to doubt Him.”
The joke was in reference to Sanders’ recent comments on God and Donald Trump. When asked, as a Christian, how she could support such an immoral man, Sanders’ replied:
“I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times, and I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president. And that’s why he’s there. And I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about.”
Conservative website, Media Matters, was quick to respond to the show’s attack on Sanders. The site wrote, “It’s also been established that it’s sexist and wrong to go after women for their looks. Or is it only liberal women that this applies to?”
Neither Sanders or the White House has responded to questions about the joke.
