CBS web series “The Good Fight” is under fire for tweeting out an image from the show featuring a list of words topped with “Assassinate,” “President” and “Trump” in succession.

The official Twitter account of Christine Baranski-starring “The Good Wife” spinoff — which screens on CBS All-Access — on Friday posted a screenshot from a March 28 episode featuring the list of “target words,” which also included “Eliminate” followed by “Mar-a-Lago.”

“Hmmm… some of those target words look a little familiar. Did you catch any easter eggs in this scene from The One Where Diane Joins The Resistance,” reads the caption on the now-deleted tweet.

On the show, the list was actually being used by NSA analysts to track threats — and the “easter egg” in question was supposed to be another word on there, “Kalinda,” the name of a former “Good Wife” character, according to Deadline.com.

But with no context given in the tweet, some social media users slammed the show for appearing to tweet out a threat to the president.

“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,” tweeted @knucklehead1121.

Several users called for the Secret Service to investigate.

The episode the screengrab came from was about Baranski’s attorney character, Diane Lockhart, joining a group of women trying to drag down President Trump’s approval ratings.

Her communications with the group are intercepted by the NSA analysts, who noted she’d used “five target words in one sentence” from the list.

Other words on the list included “Mueller,” “Scully,” “Colbert,” Roswell” and “Kushner.”
