Jim Carrey is a pretty good artist

Recommended Posts

 He's got a sense of humor too.  Some newspaper should sign him up to do political satire comics. 

 

Jim Carrey took to Twitter on Thursday to share his latest painting depicting Donald Trump, one that took aim at the president’s Thanksgiving call to U.S. troops overseas and his subsequent comments about the world being a “vicious place.”

 

As described by PopCulture, the painting was captioned on Twitter as a “holiday greeting from the White House,” showing Trump on the phone and uttering a misspelled version of one of the lines he said after Thursday’s teleconference call.

 

The remark Jim Carrey was referencing was made on Thursday, as Trump spoke to reporters who wanted to know his take on who should be blamed for the killing of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. According to Business Insider, Trump remained firm in his refusal to pin any blame on Saudi Arabia, suggesting that “maybe the world should be held accountable” for Khashoggi’s death due to the world being a “vicious place.”

 

Earlier on Thursday, Trump held a teleconference call from his private resort at Mar-a-Lago, Florida, speaking to U.S. military officers from various parts of the world and touching on a number of topics, including Khashoggi’s death, which he likewise blamed on the world in general, as recapped by the Washington Post, The president also notably said that on Thanksgiving Day, he was most thankful for how he “made a tremendous difference in our country.”

Jim Carrey’s painting of Donald Trump calling the world a “vishus [sic] place” while on the phone was not the first illustration of the president he shared on Twitter this week, according to the Huffington Post. On Tuesday, the actor and comedian posted his painting of the president speaking as bill-shaped rectangles with the word “lies” printed on them flew out of his mouth.

 

As previously reported by the Hollywood Reporter, Carrey appeared at Vulture Fest in Los Angeles last Sunday, where he took part in a panel discussion and discussed the motivation for his politically-charged paintings, which included his latest artwork at the time, a painting depicting Senate Majority Mitch McConnell as a turtle. The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind star referred to Trump as a “melanoma,” further suggesting that people such as White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders are merely “putting makeup on it” by defending the president’s statements.

 

“Now he has the nerve to come out a couple of days ago and ask for bipartisanship. These are not people you can deal with. You cannot be bipartisan with a criminal,” Carrey said.

I like his artwork, too.  He's done at least one painting of Sarah Sanders that I liked.  In fact, I liked all of his artwork that I've seen so far.  The righties hate his guts, of course.

Carey has no trouble conveying the intent of his imagery.    Most Righties are always bursting with an excess of hate anyway.

He does have a talent that gets his point across without anyone having to ask questions.  I'm hoping that Mississippi won't elect that poor ignorant woman.  So close!

I'm hoping the same.  It's been how they roll in Mississippi, up to now.

Love the American Gothic reference.  

 

I'm still holding my breath on the Mississippi election.  From what I last read a little while ago, it's in overtime now.

 

I keep seeing folks posting that Hyde-Smith will still win but if she does, I hope it's so close that her sphincter doesn't relax for a year.

You won’t find Jim Carrey’s art on Ted Cruz’s walls — even though he’s been the subject of a few pieces.

 

The actor and the politician are in a public war of words over the Kidding star’s recent painting depicting Alabama Governor Kay Ivey being aborted. Ivey signed into law the state’s extreme and unpopular near-total abortion ban, which makes no exceptions for victims of rape and incest. (Even President Trump distanced himself from the law.)

 

Carrey’s shocking portrait showed Ivey being sucked up by a gloved hand along with the protest message: “If you’re going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama.”

There was a lot of conservative criticism over the painting — and calls for Carrey’s Twitter account to be suspended — and Cruz was among those who spoke out about it. He wrote that it was “not OK.” He called Carrey and the Left “vicious, angry & consumed by hate.” He ended his post with a comment about how every human life should be respected. Cruz later retweeted some stories about how he spoke out against Carrey.

 

This is not OK. Today’s Left: vicious, angry & consumed by hate. Instead of insults & dehumanizing rage, we should return to civility. I disagree w/ Carrey’s politics, but believe we should respect his humanity nonetheless. I wish he could reciprocate.

 

Cruz’s comments sent Carrey back to his canvas and he posted a close-up image of Cruz's face with this message written over it: "Some greasy Joe McCarthy wanna-be, who is shameless and will remain nameless, was lecturing me in the press about morality and civility after spending years in the Senate defending the rights of mass murderers to own AR-15s with which they massacre innocent children in their classrooms. I thought I must be dreaming, but I haven't woken up yet. I guess this hypocrisy is the new American Dream."
