Hollywood screenwriter Aaron Sorkin lampooned President Trump when asked whether he would include a Trump-inspired character if he was ever to reboot his award-winning TV series, "The West Wing."
"Trump is exactly what he looks like: a really dumb guy with an observable psychiatric disorder," Sorkin told the Hollywood Reporter, adding the president held no appeal for him.
Sorkin has a standing offer from NBC to rehash the show, having also secured a deal with the network to bring his breakout 1992 film "A Few Good Men" to the small screen.
While so far declining NBC's request, he said he envisioned NBC "This is Us" star Sterling K. Brown as commander-in-chief.
"And there's some kind of jam, an emergency, a very delicate situation involving the threat of war or something, and [President] Bartlet, long since retired, is consulted in the way that Bill Clinton used to consult with Nixon," Sorkin said, referring to the fictional leader played by Martin Sheen in the original program that ran from 1999 to 2006.
Brown has already relayed his interest in the role.
"#AaronSorkin if you are serious, sir, I would be honored! ????????" Brown tweeted Wednesday.
This is not the first time Sorkin has had strong words for Trump.
In the wake of the president's ascendence to the White House, he wrote an open letter to daughter Roxy Sorkin and then-wife Julia Bingham.
"I won’t sugarcoat it — this is truly horrible," Sorkin wrote in November 2016. "It’s hardly the first time my candidate didn’t win (in fact it’s the sixth time) but it is the first time that a thoroughly incompetent pig with dangerous ideas, a serious psychiatric disorder, no knowledge of the world and no curiosity to learn has."
