It is the latest in a series of damning critiques of the Trump White House. On Tuesday, Jim Carrey paintedÂ the White House as many currently see it: Hell itself. The actorâ€™s caption Â—Â a spin onÂ Mark 5:1-20Â Â— references a Biblical tale in which Jesus casts legions of demons from the body of a man who had until that point been under their full control.
Later that afternoon, Carrey tweeted another of his artworks; A satire of Donald Trumpâ€™s 1987 memoir/business advice book â€śThe Art of the Dealâ€ť which the actor cleverly switched out for â€śThe Art of the Mealâ€ť alongside a depiction of a demonic Trump with fanged teeth, ready toÂ shove a baby leg down his gullet.
His caption references Trumpâ€™s tactic of holding migrant children hostage in hopes that Democrats allow him to build his wall. â€śIf the Democrats would just stop the Mueller investigation, build a wall, declare me a God and pass a special law allowing me to marry my hot daughter I wouldnÂ’t have to devour these immigrant babies,â€ť reads the caption. â€śItÂ’s terrible what theyÂ’re doing. Obstructionists!â€ť
Today, Carreyâ€™s patience with the Trump administrationâ€™s immigration tactics seemed to reach a breaking point. He posted his most recent work of art to Twitter, and it encompasses the sentiment of an entire movement and generation.
In the painting, the Statue of Liberty sits in a chair, bald, and in remission after having been diagnosed with cancer. The cancer in this instance, as Carrey explains in his caption, is the the fact that â€ś40% of the US doesnÂ’t care if Trump deports ppl, kidnaps their babies and uses them as political hostages.â€ť
But not all is lost â€” the hope of salvation remains, and manifests itself in your vote. â€śThe time for diagnosis is over,â€ť writes the actor-turned-activist. â€śItÂ’s cancer. Midterms are AmericaÂ’s last chance at remission. REGISTER TO VOTE. We can beat this disease! http://www.vote.govÂ â€ś
