Some may find it funny while others may find it offensive, but either way, the painting Jim Carrey created of president Donald Trump’s White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was nothing short of unflattering – to say the least.
Carrey painted a caricature of 35-year-old Huckabee Sanders depicting her as an angry-looking woman complete with a ruddy complexion and furrowed brow. When explaining his reasoning for painting Huckabee Sanders in such a way, Carrey said: “Her only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked.” The actor shared the painting online this weekend and it is abundantly clear that he is not a fan of her or her boss, although he didn’t mention her specifically by name in his tweet.
Carrey tweeted the image to his 18 million followers on Saturday night. He captioned his artwork: “This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!”

He told a magazine last year that creating political art isn’t a new concept for him and in the 2017 documentary I Needed Color, Carrey revealed his new creative outlet, which he said he uses to “heal a broken heart.” He has painted a number of other famous figures in recent months including the late Stephen Hawking whom Carrey referred to as the “greatest mental athlete of our time” in the wake of his death and Abraham Lincoln.

Carrey is a talented artist, but it’s safe to say that when trekking into the political realm with artwork, the backlash is likely to be swift.
