Jim Carrey's 13 Best Political Paintings
If you watched the recent Netflix documentary Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond, you know that Jim Carrey is way more than just a rubbery faced funnyman. The Mr. Popper's Penguins star is also a deep, philosophical thinker and spiritual seeker, and, as viewers learned, an avid painter.
While the canvases in the movie were mostly giant abstract works, Carrey has been focusing his attention lately on portraits of real-life figures, most of them related to Pres. Trump and Republican/right-leaning figures.
He even pitched a grotesque image of Trump tweaking his nipple while enjoying his customary double-scoop of ice cream to the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery as the "official" portrait of No. 45. His latest masterpiece trolls the Sinclair Broadcasting Group over the scandal about their mandatory pro-Trump scripts for news anchors, in the guise of a wrestling match between Fox News host Sean Hannity and InfoWars screamer Alex Jones.
"If u believe wrestling is real u may even believe Fox news, Info Wars and the robotic drones on Sinclair Broadcasting," Carrey wrote on Tuesday (Apr. 3). "But wrestling doesn’t harm viewers. Performers like Sean Hannity and Alex Jones should join the WWE where their hyperbole will do less damage to the culture."

Angry Trump eating his double scoop
Dear Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery @NPG, I know it’s early but I’d like to submit this as the official portrait of our 45th President, Donald J. Trump. It’s called, 'You Scream. I Scream. Will We Ever Stop Screaming?' pic.twitter.com/LrCmlXXpv7— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) March 29, 2018
NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre's red-eyed anger over rumors that the gun lobby took Russian money to support the GOP
They're saying the NRA took Russian money to support the Republican party in the last election. Maybe that's why Trump and his flying monkeys are so accommodating? Is Wayne LaPierre also Putin’s stooge -- or just another run of the mill demon from hell? #BanTheNRA pic.twitter.com/7r0J9NP2ng— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) March 28, 2018

The president bathing in the toxic sewage of his Washington swamp
Did anyone watch 60 minutes last night? Hell of a piece about a poor kid from Greece named Giannis Antetokounmpo who’s making it big in the NBA. America still has some magic. Pity you have to wade through so much cultural sewage to find it. ;^} pic.twitter.com/H4BTPcw8bu— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) March 27, 2018

Trump looking in his rearview mirror and seeing nothing but Russia
Lawyer and lucky charm Joe diGenovia hopes to put Dirty Donald's troubles in the rearview mirror. But the objects in the mirror are closer than they appear. ;^P pic.twitter.com/td8vGaQdKu— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) March 21, 2018
Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in mid-rant
This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous! pic.twitter.com/MeYLTy1pqb— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) March 17, 2018
NRA-beholden Sen. Marco Rubio with blood-stained hands in the wake of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting
Rubio‘s agenda is clear. Keep taking millions from the NRA and wash the blood of innocent children off his hands. Apparently $3.3 million is the price of this politician’s soul. pic.twitter.com/wom4IrTfsj— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) February 24, 2018
House Speaker Paul Ryan labeled a "creep" after the passage of the GOP's tax cuts
Tone deaf Paul Ryan brags that his tax bill is going to make low income voters an extra $1.50 a week! That’s almost enough for a box of Band-Aids. Who needs healthcare? WAKE UP REPUBLICAN BASE! You are parked on the tracks, cheering for the train that’s about to run you down. ;^P pic.twitter.com/Xh0dAiSGtC— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) February 5, 2018
