Jim Carrey mocks President Trump on his birthday with a painting of Calvin pissing on his grave
The painting was captioned, 'Oh how I urine for this to be all over,' and it quickly spread through the Twitter-verse with many praising Carrey for his work
Jim Carrey's disdain for President Donald Trump is pretty apparent to those who have followed the actor and comedian on any social media platform. Carrey has made no attempt to hide this feelings and uses his impressive artistic skills to doodle out numerous caricatures of the billionaire mogul, most of which have gone on to achieve virality.
Keeping with the tradition, his latest work holds nothing back. Posted on Thursday on his Twitter account, it appears to show the precocious and mischievous Calvin from the 'Calvin and Hobbes' comics urinating on Trump's grave which reads: "Here lies No 45; Went to hell and took the GOP with him."

Accompanied by the caption, 'Oh how I urine for this to be all over,' the caricature quickly spread through the Twitter-verse and brought back attention to some of his previous works, each of which satirically comments on one or the other dysfunctional aspect of the much-criticized Trump administration.
Many of the comments praised Carrey's work. One wrote: "I think George Carlin would have had a field day with this administration... but I like your style too," with another posting: "Favorite artist of my generation."
The comic, coincidentally, or not so, was timed for a release on what was Trump's 72nd birthday. While numerous right-wing sects and supporters celebrated the occasion, Carrey decided to show his appreciation in what has now become his trademark, piercing style.
It marks just one of many paintings that he has churned out targeting the president and the GOP. This past March, he posted a drawing of Trump alluding to his suspiciously cozy relationship with Russian president Vladimir Putin. Trump was depicted as the evil Wicked Witch from 'The Wizard of Oz' while Putin was shown to be one of the Witch's flying monkeys.
He wrote: "If you liked my last cartoon you may also enjoy...THE WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST WING AND PUTIN’S FLYING MONKEYS."
Yet another of his drawings depicted Trump in a compromising position with a blonde woman, thankfully, with his rear covered by the seal of the US President. As she reaches out to grab his hair, his wig falls off. Carrey called it "Fifty Shades of Decay."
Carrey was also the targeted by Republicans when he unveiled a wholly unflattering portrait of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that was captioned: "This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!"
In the aftermath, Sanders' father took to Twitter to condemn the drawing and Carrey. Sanders herself called Carrey a 'pathetic bully,' as well as 'sexist,' a 'bigot,' and a 'hater,' and the other equally damning responses seemed to spur the comedian on further, however. Not taken aback in the slightest by the backlash, Carrey said he felt 'gratified' by the reaction it drew.
He then debuted his 'official portrait' of Trump on his social media pages. Targeting the businessman's chequered history with sexual misdemeanors and the infamous 'p***ygate,' the comic showed Trump pleasuring himself as he touched his right nipple and ate ice cream. And, of course, the ice cream resembled two breasts.
The caption was equally controversial. "Dear Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, 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?'," he wrote.
Carrey has not shied away from expressing his feelings towards the so-called sensitive issues either. Following the Valentine's Day massacre at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, Carrey put out a powerful comic addressing the NRA and the refusal of politicians to strengthen gun control laws. It was a picture of a dead student sprawled across an American flag with the caption: "Oh say, can't you see?"
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.
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 as Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation gathers steam.
