Jim Carrey says Trump could become 'first American President to defect' before November elections
After swearing that he was done creating anti-Trump cartoons, actor Jim Carrey is at it again after he took to social media on Monday, June 16, with his latest illustration.
The 'Dumb and Dumber' actor posted a colorful sketch of what appeared to be Russian President Vladimir Putin holding the US Air Force One aircraft and captioned his tweet: "Be wary of diplomatic missions to Moscow prior to the November elections. Given the list of possible indictments he faces, Traitor Trump may be the first American President to defect."
Back in January, Carrey vowed that he was done with cartoons that bashed Trump and other members of his administration. "I've said what I need to say, and I've allowed it to inhabit my body and cause whatever low vibrations do to a body," he said. "You know, I sounded my yelp, I warned people, and that's enough. They know how I feel. So I'll vote in November, and that's that. If the wheels come off the wagon completely, then I'll meet them in the street. But I'm not going to waste another moment of my time with a narcissist, President… what's his name again?”
However, the actor could not stick to his promise for long as he was back posting his creations just months later. In March he tweeted, "Trump is willing to risk countless lives to save his economic record. He has fully become the mayor from 'Jaws'," along with a painting of an angry Trump shouting at a bunch of people.
Last year in December, Carrey depicted the president face-deep in a toilet bowl, cleaning an excrement-filled pot of his "scandals". It showed an angry POTUS wielding a toilet brush inside a toilet whose rim was swimming with brown blotches inscribed with alleged charges that Carrey believed were linked to Trump. "And what's wrong with toilets these days? Ya have to flush 15 times and no matter how hard you scrub them… the poop sticks! Out damn spot, out, I say!" the caption around the toilet reads.
The poop stains on the inside of the toilet had words like "Fraud", "Tax", "Not a self-made man", "Unchristian hypocrite", "Abuse of power", "More lies", "Amphetamines", "Lied to Mueller under oath", "Election meddling" and "Extortion and bribery" — words which have come to be associated with Trump at various points during his presidency.
Also after Trump was impeached for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress by the House of Representatives, Carrey had posted another piece of art featuring Trump as a Frankenstein's creature-like monster strangling his supposed creator, Putin. In that sketch, Trump's signature red tie was seen flying in the air, with the label "Made in China" on the back. "That night, Donald had a very strange dream," Carrey captioned that tweet.
Carrey has also mocked people defended by Trump in the past. In February, he took to social media to express his thoughts on Roger Stone with a cartoon that acted as a warning for children to not become like him. In the cartoon, Carey wrote, "Hey Kids... Don't Be Like 'Roger The Artless Dodger'." He further captioned the image as, "Choose Your Heroes Wisely!"
