Jim Carrey shares savage new portrait featuring Donald Trump and Putin
It's no secret by now that Jim Carrey isn't exactly a fan of Donald Trump. Over the past year or so, the actor-turned-artist has been speaking out against the president via a series of (often rather crude and explicit) paintings, all of which focus on some aspect of the Trump administration.
In some of his most recent pieces, the Eternal Sunshine star has called out the president for his involvement in talks with North Korea, his inhumane treatment of immigrants and refugees entering the USA at the southern border, and, of course, the suspected Russian involvement in the 2016 election.
With that in mind, we were all expecting to see a new piece of art after Trump recently met with Vladimir Putin at a summit in Finland - and Carrey has delivered.
His latest drawing, which was posted to Twitter yesterday, shows the presidents of the USA and Russia standing sternly side-by-side, with Putin uttering the words, "I keep the balls".
The rest is pretty self-explanatory.
This, of course, is not the first picture of Trump and Putin that Carrey has shared. Last week, he posted a drawing of the pair with the words "would" and "wouldn't" overlayed as a negative space image - a reference to the US president's supposed slip-up when he said "I don’t see any reason why it would be [Russia]" who interfered with the election two years ago.
A day later, he claimed he meant to say "wouldn't".
In all of these posts, Carrey made sure to include the URL "vote.gov" in order to encourage people to vote in the upcoming midterms. However, as well as encouraging political action, the comedic actor has also incited a lot of hatred with his artwork.
"What happened to you man?" wrote one Twitter user. "You used to project so much love."
"Another delusional Hollywood elitist spewing paranoid political rhetoric," added another.
Still, a lot of folks agree with what he's doing.
"Man, say what you will about Jim Carrey’s acting career, but his art statements are flat-out amazing," commented one supporter.
"Absolutely brilliant Jim," chimed in another. "Never stop creating such art in paint or in words. Priceless."
And you have to admit that the guy has a lot of talent - especially when it comes to his creativity.
Plus, in the current political climate, it's very easy to despair over the state of things. At least by using this approach, Carrey is channelling his anger into a medium that provokes discussion and encourages a critical eye of Trump's presidency - and that is undoubtedly important.
The haters can come for him all they want: it's clear that Carrey has no intention of stopping his artwork anytime soon.
