Jim Carrey’s relatively newish career as a political artist has proven to be as entertaining as whatever the hell is going on at the White House these days. His “submission” of Trump’s semi-nude official portrait to the Smithsonian National Portrait gallery last March (“You Scream. I Scream. Will We Ever Stop Screaming?”) was a masterpiece and a delight. His depiction of scandal-clad EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt was hysterical and savage.
As any good comic knows, sometimes you gotta laugh to keep from crying. And like any good political cartoon, Carrey’s art cuts to the core of his subjects. The head of the Environmental Protection Agency accepts bribes from energy lobbyists, and is depicted with his pants down, mouth open, spewing sh*t.
Trump’s sons pose proudly with the tails of trophy animals a child could easily kill, so Carrey paints them gored by elephant tusks, his caption reading #teamelephant.
Migrant children are literally ripped from their parents’ arms by ICE agents whereas the ones at home fear for their lives every time they set foot inside a classroom. Carrey draws a scared child, being held up by a big white hand, the words above his head reading “I want my mommy.”
The actor and artist’s latest show of disdain for Trump takes aim at the president’s meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un following their summit in Singapore. Late Monday, Carrey debuted his latest drawing on Twitter.
In it, Kim wears a missile costume reading “I starved my people to make this missile” and holds a sign that says, “Little Rocket Man,” a reference to Trump’s nickname for him until recently.
Carrey captioned the new piece: “Let’s Make A Deal: You’ll be a real world leader. I’ll sway the midterm elections. And together we will save the world from the bloodthirsty Canadians.”
Carrey also takes a shot at Trump for his unnecessarily rude treatment of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at last weekend’s G7 summit in Quebec.
Later that day, Carrey dropped another new Trump-Kim inspired piece of art on his Twitter. This one featured an equation; Kim + Trump = a bottle of Jack Daniels and a set of car keys.
In other words, toxic, dangerous, illegal, and one of the worst possible combinations imaginable. And no designated driver, to boot!
Carrey’s fans agreed with the sentiment. Seeing the two leaders next to each other was…unsettling.
The only criticism we’d have for Carrey would be to leave JD out of it. Their lethal combo is more akin to MD 20/20, or Four Loko.
