President Donald Trump is getting no respect from "Broad City."

The red-hot Comedy Central series plans to bleep Trump's name from all of its new episodes, essentially treating the commander in chief's name as if it was a curse word.

"There's no airtime for this orange [person]. We bleep his name the whole season," series co-creator Ilana Glazer said in an interview with USA Today.

Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, who also star in the show — an odd-couple comedy about two best friends navigating their 20s in New York City — said they were forced to rewrite a lot of the new season because of Trump's surprise with in the November election.

"We wrote [Season 4] being like, 'Here we go! Hillary for president!'" Glazer told the newspaper, adding that after "this game-show host became president of our country, we rewrote a lot."

In a trailer for the upcoming season, Glazer and Abbi are seen at a rally wearing pink "pussy hats" — a nod to Trump's foul comments to TV host Billy Bush about women's private parts — and Ilana utters an obscenity about him.

In one new episode, Glazer told USA Today deals with the idea that "a witch is really just a woman who's in touch with her womanhood."

"Ilana's 'powers' are decreasing during the current administration because it's just so hard to [orgasm] when you know so many people are in such danger. So Ilana works through her Trump-related [hang-up] and it's wild," she said.

Comedy Central will be airing new episodes beginning in August. Last season, the duo invited Hillary Clinton on for a cameo.
