Jim Carrey Tears Trump Apart in Abstract Paintings
Actor Jim Carrey seems to be obsessed with painting portraits of Donald Trump and those close to him.
In the past year or so people began to find out Jim Carrey is actually a pretty talented painter. There was a documentary about his art last year called I Needed Color that some people chattered about online — many were genuinely impressed and surprised by his work.
Well, people are chattering once again about his art — but this time it’s political. The firestorm started with this portrait of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders —
With the image, he included the tweet: “This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!”
Sanders’ father, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, took offense to the image. He tweeted —
Jim also took some heat for this painting of President Trump’s sons, Eric and Donald Jr., being impaled by an elephant.
This caused Twitter user Eric Pacheco reported Carrey to the FBI for making a threat against the president’s sons.
Carrey has also recently posted paintings of a Trump — having sex with Stormy Daniels, as the Wicked Witch from Wizard of Oz, tickling his nipples while eating ice cream, and bathing in raw sewage. Jim even tagged the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in the nipple portrait tweet, asking if they’d like to use it as Trump’s official presidential portrait.
Interestingly enough, he also painted a portrait of Jared Kushner burning in hell, and nobody really seemed all that concerned.
What do you guys think? Should Jim Carrey get his paintbrushes taken away or is his art here to stay? Let us know in the comments.
