In response to the recent series of mail bombs sent to prominent Democrats, Jim Carrey, whose film career was as funny as his politics are not, revealed a new portrait of President Trump depicting him as responsible for the threatened violence, with Trump’s mouth wide open and an explosive coming out of his mouth.
Kerry wrote, “Today they tried to murder two Presidents as well as public servants and journalists. Make no mistake, these terrorists were encouraged and emboldened by the hate speech of Donald Trump. If you can’t see the clear menace of this man’s influence by now then you are a part of it.”
Carrey, the star of “Dumb and Dumber,” has blasted Trump time after time. Last June, Carrey tweeted a painting of his depicting the White House windows glowing red like fire with eyes from within looking out, with a caption reading, “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.’”
Roughly two weeks ago, Carrey called Trump a “demon” and painted him in an altered poster for the horror movie “The Exorcist,” writing, “From the bowels of the White House he shrieked, hurled curses and tweeted bile — because that’s what demons do. YOU are the Exorcist. Vote Democrat for goodness’ sake. http://www.Vote.gov.”
There have been other Trump-hating tweets from the so-called funnyman:
Speaking in an interview last January, Carrey spoke of his spiritual epiphany, saying:
Well, I have gone through a lot changes in the last few years and a lot of realizations — and I guess you could say awakenings about things. Everything is touched by that, everything I am doing creatively right now seems to point to the awareness of a lack of self.
Saying there was no “individual” there, only “energies,” Carrey continued:
Yes, they’re me. They’re me talking to me — whatever they are, no matter how bad they are. I have gone through some really tough times in the last few years and I would not wish them on anybody, but my God, my understanding of life and what is real and what is not real has expanded exponentially because of that. And my ability to understand suffering, which is a valuable thing. It’s the way to salvation because once you understand it, you have compassion, and the next thing you know, you are free. So what happened after that realization was essentially a very desperate and good energy of wanting to be loved and wanting to love and wanting to create and be admired.
Carrey said of his painting career, “To me, it’s just another way of creating. It happened, it was inspired by broken hearts, and I’ve had a few. It was inspired by that, by the need to express something immediately and not wait for a green light committee or a script to be perfect or any of that stuff! ‘Here’s an idea, I don’t even know what it means yet. I’m going to paint it. I’m going to sculpt it. And then it will tell me what it means a year from now.’ It’s just a fantastic feeling.”
