Late on Sunday night, actor Jim Carrey, who has taken up painting sordid pictures of various Republicans in recent years as his film career has come to a standstill, offered his latest chef-d’œuvre: a painting of Republican Senator Ted Cruz in fiery red, captioning it, “Ted Cruz, Hellbound Class of 2020.”

On Monday, an unfazed Cruz told Carrey just where he could stick his picture, tweeting, “Hey, @JimCarrey, can I get a copy of this for my office?”

Carrey apparently doesn’t care if Republicans are living or dead when he makes use of them for his political propaganda purposes. In August he issued his latest tour-de-force, a drawing of President Abraham Lincoln, the first GOP president, putting a rifle in his mouth, ostensibly to commit suicide from watching the Republican National Convention. The drawing was captioned, “If Lincoln had seen the lineup of liars, thieves, religious hypocrites and racist ne’er-do-wells that would appear at the RNC in 2020…”

In March 2018, Carrey painted a portrait many people saw as former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, captioning it, “This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!”

After Huckabee Sanders’ father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, slammed Carrey for the drawing, Carrey refused to apologize, telling The Young Turks, “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!”

In June 2018, Carrey posted another work showing Calvin from “Calvin & Hobbes” urinating on President Trump’s grave. It was captioned, “Oh how I urine for this all to be over!” The inscription on the cartoon grave read: “HERE LIES NO.45. WENT TO HELL AND TOOK THE GOP WITH HIM.”

Later in June 2018, Carrey paintedthe White House windows as glowing red like fire while ere creepy eyes peer out. “And as the sun set upon the White House all its windows danced with glowing eyes — and demons’ voices growled to the prisoner within, saying, ‘Our name is legion, for we are many. You will be our hands in the world. It’s time for us to Tweet again,'” it was captioned.

The same month, Carrey added another work of art, this time depicting President Trump as a Biblical-era Roman soldier hammering a nail into Jesus Christ’s hands, captioned, “Christianity, Trump style: ‘Jesus was a loser. A failed carpenter. He’s a savior because he was crucified. I like people that weren’t crucified.’”
