CBS All-Access’ “The Good Wife” spinoff series, “The Good Fight,” is in hot water after tweeting an image from one of its episodes that shows a list of “target words” including: “Assassinate,” “President” and “Trump” in a red column and a second orange column that started with the words: “Mar-a-Lago” and “Eliminate.”
The episode itself focuses on the character Diane (Christine Baranski) joining a female resistance group tasked with dragging down Donald Trump’s approval ratings.
The tweet, which has since been deleted, did not provide context for the list. Instead, it asked viewers if they could find the Easter egg. The egg reference ended up being linked to Kalinda, a popular character in “The Good Wife,” whose name was in the second column.
The tweet hit a nerve with some viewers not amused by the Trump reference. Some pledged to stop watching the show while others threatened to contact the authorities.
One user tweeted: “Yes, @CBS this is despicable to run subliminal messages encouraging the assassination of the president @realDonaldTrump I hope @SecretService investigates @thegoodfight thoroughly.”
Another shared : “You know I just reported this to the FBI. Thank you for breaking the law.”
“This is absolutely abhorrent and cannot be tolerated. Will @CBS allow this garbage? The show should be dropped immediately.”
Another user said they will hit CBS where it hurts the most.
“Just stopped watching anything having to do with CBS, and especially, The Good Fight. Inciting political violence? Advocating for the assassination of Donald Trump? Have you all lost your minds? I’ll be contacting your advertisers.”
“The garbage show @thegoodfight that incites to(sic) violence on the streets already deleted their tweet, but they cannot delete the terrible image they left on hundreds of twitter users.”
CBS declined to comment to Fox News.
This isn’t the first time “The Good Fight” has taken a dig at Trump. A couple of years ago, the show tackled the topic of censorship under the Trump administration. There have also been Trump-inspired episodes on just about every primetime network including NBC’s “Law & Order: SUV,” ABC’s “Quantico” and Showtime’s “Homeland,” to name a few.

CNN’s April Ryan calls for Sarah Sanders to be fired
In May 2017, following the turbulent firing of FBI Director James Comey, Sanders told reporters that “countless” FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey despite one reporter’s assertion that the “vast majority” of them supported his leadership. According to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, Sanders told investigators her claim was a “slip of the tongue” and was “in the heat of the moment,” admitting that it was not founded on anything.
Ryan, who is also a White House reporter for the American Urban Radio Networks, blasted the press secretary on Thursday night for “lying” to the American people.
“Not only does she not have any credibility left, she lied,” Ryan told CNN anchor Erin Burnett. “She outright lied and the people, the American people can’t trust her. They can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece, spokesperson, from the people’s house. Therefore, she should be let go. She should be fired. End of story. When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off. It’s ‘Fire Me Thursday’ or ‘Fire Me Good Friday,’ she needs to go.”
The CNN pundit suggested that since President Trump “won’t take the fall” that Sanders might instead.
“Sarah plays a dangerous game in that room… The game is dangerous because she is lying to the American public,” Ryan continued. “Then, on top of all that, she says the press is fake when she’s faking reports from the people’s house. She’s calling us fake? We’ve had colleagues who’ve had to move from their houses because of threats. I have to have security because of being called ‘fake’ and a ‘loser’ and all sorts of things from that White House. It’s time for her to go.”
The White House did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
‘Modern Family’ star Sarah Hyland shares racy bikini photo for self-motivation
Hyland shared a “throwback Thursday” snapshot of herself rocking a bikini and explained that she wanted “to remind myself that I can make it to the gym.”
She went on to boast of the power of the female body, saying its abilities were limitless.
“Lately I’ve been making excuses because of the constant pain from health issues. But no more. A woman’s body is a miraculous thing and we can do anything we set our minds to,” she wrote. “#summer #bodygoals here I come.”

Lili Reinhart shows off her pole dancing skills while filming ‘Hustlers’
On Thursday, the 22-year-old actress shared a behind-the-scenes photo of herself prepping for the movie, which follows a group of strip club employees who join together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients.
“Really nailing this whole pole thing,” Reinhart captioned a picture on her Instagram Story which shows the “Riverdale” star — wearing a black top and matching shorts paired with heels — hanging upside down on a pole.
The movie — written and directed by Lorene Scafaria — is inspired by a 2016 New York Magazine story, according to Deadline.
