“The Big Bang Theory” star Johnny Galecki took a moment to reflect on the nation’s political landscape on Friday, offering a grim assessment of President Trump’s influence.
In an Instagram post published Friday afternoon, Galecki posted a photo of a young boy sitting on a man’s shoulders, holding a sign reading, “I’m not allowed to act like the President.”
“Remember when the President was (even mostly kinda) a positive influence?” Galecki lamented. “Kudos to this man for raising a thoughtful boy.”
The actor went on to say that he has “a lot of questions” for people who voted Trump into office.
“For those of you men whom have daughters and voted for a man who bragged on tape about sexually assaulting women, I have a lot of questions for you,” Galecki wrote. “For those of you women who voted the same, I have a lot more.”
The actor concluded, “Feel free to unfollow me.”
Galecki’s post came after the arrest of Cesar Sayoc Jr., who is accused of mailing bombs to several prominent Democrats and Trump critics this week.
Authorities seized Sayoc’s van, which was covered in pro-Trump, anti-Democrat and anti-CNN stickers.
While Trump denounced the bomb threats, the situation renewed discussion over the influence that Trump’s often-combative rhetoric might have on the nation. British media personality Piers Morgan, for one, criticized Trump after the president on Friday, though he also reserved criticism for Trump’s detractors.
“Trump must dial down his inflammatory rhetoric because it is dangerous to deluded minds,” Morgan tweeted. “But I also think CNN should dial down their 24/7 Trump-bashing which has gone way beyond any pretense at impartiality.”
