It looks like Jim Carrey has found a new path as a political satirist, but the career-comedian isn’t using jokes to communicate his message. Rather, Carrey has put brush to canvas in a series of scathing portraits of the current White House Staff. Naturally, conservatives are none too thrilled with Carrey’s new artistic musings.
On Sunday, Carrey took to social media to share a painting that bore a striking resemblance to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!” he captioned the image. Mind you, a spokesperson told the Associated Press that while Carrey did make the work, she wouldn’t confirm of whom it was. (It’s kind of painfully obvious though.)
Then on Monday, Carrey shared another one of his oeuvres, a portrait of Donald Trump, on Twitter. “If you liked my last cartoon you may also enjoy...THE WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST WING AND PUTIN’S FLYING MONKEYS,” wrote the actor.
TBH, Carrey’s witch’s hat is a lot more flattering that 45’s signature combover.
This isn't the first time the actor and comedian has taken to Twitter to share his political art. He previously dropped one of Marco Rubio.
Needless to say, conservative Twitter is very salty about all of this, claiming that Carrey is bullying White House staff. One might argue White House staff is bullying the rest of the world, but tomato, tomah-toe, I guess.
