Comedic actor Jim Carrey shared a portrait of an angry woman he painted and made disparaging references that appeared to reference White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
“This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked,” he tweeted. “Monstrous!”

Carrey doesn’t mention her by name but, his followers were quick to jump on hate parade by posting images and memes of Sanders.

This isn’t Carrey’s first shot against team Trump, in November he posted an even less artful doodle featuring Trump kissing Putin’s butt.

Carrey turned to painting and sculpting to get over a hurtful split with Jenny McCarthy in 2017. Some of his paintings have been shown in Museums but art critics have criticized his work as “crudely colored,” “lurish,” and “kitshch.”
He is an astonishingly bad painter and sculptor,” The Guardian concluded in a particularly scathing review published last year. “If his art helps and heals him, that’s great. He just should not be showing this stuff to anyone and expecting anything except derision. Crudely colored Jesus-like faces, lurish fluorescent portraits, random abstractions and kitshch clay figures – this is a joke. Please, say it’s a joke.”
