By now it is no secret what actor Jim Carrey thinks of Trump and those who work within his administration, the former comedian has become quite the political cartoonist over the past year, and we thank him for it.
Carrey’s true masterpieces followed after Trump enacted the “zero tolerance policy” back in April, a policy that has seen thousands of immigrant children forcefully separated from their parents and locked in cages.
Carrey’s first painting on the issue said it all:
1500 innocent children ripped from their mothers’ arms at our border. Lost in Trump’s “system”. Give us your tired, your poor, your huddle masses yearning to breathe free — and we will torture them for wanting a better life. From Shining City to Evil Empire in under 500 days. pic.twitter.com/Qg07vb0aBg

The shocking art piece depicts Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents separating a mother and her child. White House chief of staff John Kelly, who at the time had defended the policy, appears in the background.
“1500 innocent children ripped from their mothers’ arms at our border. Lost in Trump’s ‘system’. Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free — and we will torture them for wanting a better life,” Carrey wrote.
As the horror stories continued to emerge, Carrey once again picked up his brush and went to work:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions came forth this Tuesday to crack a joke at the expense of the thousands of families separated while speaking before a conservative criminal justice organization in Los Angeles.
Sessions made the remarks while attacking the left for it’s supposed “hypocrisy” on border security.
“The rhetoric we hear from the other side on this issue – as on many others – has become radicalized,” Sessions stated. “We hear views on television today that are on the lunatic fringe, frankly.”
“And what is perhaps more galling is the hypocrisy,” he added. “These same people live in gated communities, many of them, and are featured at events where you have to have an ID to even come in and hear them speak. They like a little security around themselves.”
“And if you try to scale the fence, believe me, they’d be even too happy to have you arrested and separated from your children,” he suggested.
Trump supporters also demonstrated outrage online at Jim’s new painting:
You are wrong! Read the statute!!!! Thanks for ruining your movies for me. I wish actors would just entertain us without the side of politics.

All you leftist fucks have lost your minds. The American people spoke. It's time you accept it. I used to be a big fan Jim. I think your losing a lot of them.

Watching you meltdown and destroy what was left of your “career” and reputation is both sad and funny.

I remember when Jim Carrey was funny. Now he's just a dull celebrity that takes himself to serious.
