Actor turned artist, Jim Carrey, has a muse. Trump.
The comedian’s latest creation is a colorful portrait of a screaming Trump in a bathrobe eating two scoops of ice cream, which Carrey jokingly pitched to the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery.
Carrey tweeted on Thursday.
“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?”
Carrey has also slammed Marco Rubio after the Florida senator would not commit to declining donations from the NRA during a CNN town hall, dissed House Speaker Paul Ryan, shaded Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in November ahead of the bill’s passage. He’s also taken on Roy Moore, Trump’s ex-bf, Steve Bannon, and made Deven Nunes, the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee see his trademark “Nothing Burger.”
Carrey got into some hot water (for some reason?) over his portrait of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Carrey responded by saying,
“I am so gratified by the reaction to my little drawings. It is the job of a political cartoon to vex those who abuse power or enable those abuses. This administration has been lying to the American people from day one while plundering the country and debasing our values. And those who cover for this shameful mobster of a President are putting makeup on a melanoma and telling the cancer patient that everything’s fine. Monstrous? You bet!”
