Jim Carrey's latest painting shows a frail Lady Liberty suffering from cancer
Jim Carrey has done it again. This time the actor is calling on Americans to act and save the country from a fatal disease by voting in the Midterm elections
Jim Carrey's relentless attacks on President Donald Trump and his embattled administration seem to be increasing in frequency. The actor has been putting out one political painting after another featuring scathing criticism of the Trump administration. The actor's latest painting is a political call to arms and depicts Lady Liberty suffering from cancer. The painting is captioned "40% of the US doesn’t care if Trump deports ppl, kidnaps their babies and uses them as political hostages. The time for diagnosis is over. It’s cancer. Midterms are America’s last chance at remission. REGISTER TO VOTE. We can beat this disease!"

The painting features a bald Lady Liberty who is suffering from cancer and seeming undergoing chemotherapy. She seems to be blowing at the torch in her hand and her feet lies the tablet with the date of the US Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776, inscribed in Roman numerals.
The actor-turned-artist's recently took a dig at President Trump poking fun at his constant changes in tune and tunnel vision when it comes to the Democratic Party.
In one of his more recent controversial attacks against Trump, Carrey caricatured Trump's infamous 'Art of the Deal' book, which the president has, in the past, used on numerous occasions to play up his business acumen and convince supporters that he would bring back the halcyon days.
“If the Democrats would just stop the Mueller investigation, build a wall, declare me a God and pass a special law allowing me to marry my hot daughter I wouldn’t have to devour these immigrant babies. It’s terrible what they’re doing. Obstructionists!” pic.twitter.com/LgOejCxRTN— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) 19 June 2018
Titled 'Trump: The Art of the Meal,' Carrey has painted Trump in a demonic light, complete with a set of fangs, pointy eyebrows, and a scrunched up nose. Trump also appears to be caressing the foot of a baby and stroking it against his chin.
Accompanying the painting was a caption that read, "If the Democrats would just stop the Mueller investigation, build a wall, declare me a God and pass a special law allowing me to marry my hot daughter I wouldn’t have to devour these immigrant babies. It’s terrible what they’re doing. Obstructionists!"
While each of Carrey's previous works had a certain theme to them, it seems that this time, the comedian has decided to take a blanket approach to the controversies that have plagued Trump and his administration, though it has given a special mention to the harsh immigration policies that have been enacted since the president's coronation in 2017.
His caption references Trump's constant attacks on Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team's investigations into possible foreign interference into the 2016 presidential elections and how he has threatened to shut it down; his promises to build a wall and make Mexico pay for it; his perceived attraction towards his own daughter, Ivanka, whom he claimed he would sleep with if she wasn't his blood; and of course, the latest controversy dominating headlines the forced separation of immigrant children from their parents at the border.
Since ascending to the Oval Office, Trump and his administration have been embroiled in several controversies, with some significant Hollywood personalities such as Carrey and Robert De Niro openly expressing their distaste at the haphazard governing.
Carrey, however, has arguably irked the Republicans to a much higher degree with his incendiary and often personal attacks at prominent members of the party.
This most recent painting follows one from last Thursday, which had the caption, "Oh how I urine for this to be all over." Carrey, in accordance with the president's 72nd birthday, posted what appeared to be Calvin from the Calvin and Hobbes comics urinating on Trump's grave that reads, "Here lies No 45; Went to hell and took the GOP with him."
It looks unlikely that Carrey is going to stop these political commentaries any time soon, especially with the reactions they've been garnering across the board.
President Trump, the GOP, NRA, and Putin have been his primary targets so far, though it would not be too surprising to see the popular comedian shift gears in the coming months with the mid-term elections fast approaching in November.
