The "Ace Ventura" star has been filling his Twitter feed with political commentary through his art.
We knew Jim Carrey was a talented actor and comedian, but who knew he had such a knack for political cartooning and commentary too? His latest effort is an unidentified woman who is almost certainly Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Carrey labeled the image, "This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!"
The frankly terrifying image is just the latest in a series of full-color illustrations the actor has spread across his Twitter feed over the past several months. Virtually no one associated with the White House has been safe from the artist's satirical pencil, with less-than-flattering images of Steve Bannon, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Roy Moore, Devin Nunes, Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump himself.
His artistic side started to creep up more prominently with Trump's campaign, and really kicked into high gear as the new president took office. On top of that, Carrey's artistic ability has improved tremendously, both in coloring technique and his ability to capture the likeness of the figures through his unique caricature style. He's also created provocative and intentionally uncomfortable art as a response to the ongoing school shootings and his percieved lack of response to the crisis.

Carrey has coupled each of his images with scathing commentary about the political figure he's mocking, or the significant cultural moment he's commenting on. From suggesting that Trump is eating a baby, to his Cabinet members being literal rats leaving a sinking ship, Carrey may be just one celebrity voice among hundreds criticizing the current administration, but he may just be the only one backing up his words with hand-drawn imagery.
Below are some of his most provocative and compelling pieces, starting with his most stark political statement, direct from his Twitter feed:

WHAT WILL IT TAKE for the GOP to throw this madman overboard? HOW LOW MUST WE SINK before REPS become patriotic? 8^Q pic.twitter.com/9EJVYD5qOP— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) August 16, 2017
I’m Steve Bannon and I endorse Roy Moore for US Senate.He stands accused of molesting a 14yr old girl,but at least he’s not a Democrat! ?8^¥ pic.twitter.com/p2ojKqVS47— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) November 10, 2017
I don’t know yet if Roy Moore is guilty of pedophilia, but these allegations along w/ his religious extremism and intolerance make him unsuitable for the Senate. ;^| pic.twitter.com/NEeeAwvDUP— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) November 10, 2017

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
It should no longer be a surprise to people that Caveman Trump would hire a man like Porter, who’s accused of beating his wives. If you want nasty things done, you hire nasty people. That’s how criminal syndicates thrive. #impeachprehistoricpotus pic.twitter.com/86JaEMcp2M— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) February 9, 2018
All who enter his crooked carnival with integrity are doomed to leave without it. General Kelly has been trampled by his own compromise. Who dares be the next to ride the carousel of fools?! Muahahaha!!! pic.twitter.com/MQDvFBrYlG— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) February 11, 2018
It’s President's Day and Chief Little Hands has been busy tweeting from his golf resort, a chip shot away from the latest bloody school shooting. He was hoping to play a few holes while grieving families are busy digging them. I support @cameron_kasky #neveragain pic.twitter.com/ndJcrk3Sw5— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) February 19, 2018
Great news! The President's answer to school shootings is to arm the glee club! ;^P pic.twitter.com/spSnwTo4Hz— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) February 23, 2018

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
