Cruz Has Zinger Of His Own After Jim Carrey’s ‘Vampire’ Attack On Twitter

Former funnyman Jim Carrey on Sunday pulled one of his infantile drawings off his refrigerator and posted it on Twitter.

The childish drawing depicted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as a “bloodsucker” vampire being slain by Democrat Beto O’Rourke.

“Go Beto! Go Democrats! Vote like there’s no tomorrow,” Carrey tweeted alongside the image. “Let’s make this Tuesday like the end of every great vampire movie. Pull back the curtains and let the sunshine turn all those bloodsuckers to dust.”

Wait, before you say, “Huh, that seems like a call to violence,” remember that Carrey is a liberal and the liberal mainstream media would never think of calling him out for the clearly violent depiction.

Carrey, who said in September that Americans “have to say yes to socialism,” doesn’t even live in Texas, but never mind that, either. He’s a Hollywood star, so he’s allowed to weigh in on any political race anywhere — even though O’Rourke has eschewed help, saying, “I don’t want anyone coming in from the outside. I want the people of Texas to decide this on, on their own terms.”

But Cruz, who’s actually a bit funnier than Carrey is now, had his own zinger ready.

“Hollywood liberals all in for Beto. But (self-described socialist) Jim Carrey made a mistake here: Vampires are dead, and everyone knows the dead vote Democrat….” Cruz wrote Monday on Twitter.

That, of course, set Carrey off, who fell into ad hominem (and profane) attacks.

“Wow…sorry I rattled your chain, @TedCruz,” the actor wrote on Twitter. “I thought you would have more important things to do two days before an election — like sucking up to the guy who called your wife ugly and accused your dad of murder. But I get it! It’s hard to say no when Trump grabs ya by the p—-!”

Oh, Jim. Will you ever just be funny again?
