Jim Carrey's New Obsession Is Creating Trump Portraits
Most people know Jim Carrey as a rubber-faced comedian who’s responsible for such hits as Dumb and Dumber, The Mask, and Bruce Almighty. But when he’s not giving his all for laughs, Carrey channels his feelings and frustrations into his art, creating sketches and paintings. He’s done this for decades and used the internet to share this side of himself for years. (The now defunct JimCarrey.com was a wonder.) Now, he’s taken to Twitter to show his thoughts on the Trump presidency through colorful portraits.
This one seems to be Sarah Elizabeth Huckabee Sanders.
This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous! pic.twitter.com/MeYLTy1pqb— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) March 17, 2018
Then came a bunch of Trump family portraits, like this one of Donald and his sons.

And the hits keep coming.

Did anyone watch 60 minutes last night? Hell of a piece about a poor kid from Greece named Giannis Antetokounmpo who’s making it big in the NBA. America still has some magic. Pity you have to wade through so much cultural sewage to find it. ;^} pic.twitter.com/H4BTPcw8bu— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) March 27, 2018
Dear Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery @NPG, I know it’s early but I’d like to submit this as the official portrait of our 45th President, Donald J. Trump. It’s called, 'You Scream. I Scream. Will We Ever Stop Screaming?' pic.twitter.com/LrCmlXXpv7— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) March 29, 2018
Now, a movie star making mocking cartoons of a president is not something that a president would comment on. Normally. But we left normal on November 9th, 2016. So, what do you suspect President* Donald Trump’s inevitable Twitter response to Carrey’s portraits will be?
