Jim Carrey, star of such hits as Bruce Almighty, Dumb & Dumber, and Ace Ventura, has been putting his comedic talents to good use through satirical paintings of President Trump and his administration.
On Tuesday, August 21, the same day Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to charges of campaign finance violation, implicating President Trump in the crime, the star posted a new painting to his Twitter featuring the President in quite the compromising position:
Manafort, GUILTY! Cohen, GUILTY! Flynn, Guilty! Gates, Guilty! What’s happening to All the Best People? “Ladies and Gentlemen! Children of all ages! Can the Great Spewdini spew enough lies to escape the straight-jacket of his un-Presidented criminality?” pic.twitter.com/qLiaEDfsuA

Calling Trump “The Great Spewdini,” Carrey made it clear that his presidency was in an incredibly perilous position.
And people were here for it:
Can we get #thegreatspewdini hashtag going? It’s glorious.

Jim Carrey your genius warms my heart. Thanks for expressing this debacle in ways I’d never be capable of. #CarreytotheLouvre

Of course, the commander-in-chief isn’t Carrey’s only target among Trump officials! His paintbrush also had some things to say about Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani:
Down and down they went. Lower than any administration in history. Arthritic knees creaking and burning, Giuliani’s hammy thighs chafing in the wet heat of his Master’s crypt.

August 21 also happens to be the day Paul Manafort was convicted on 8 counts of white-collar financial crimes.

The actor obviously believes Special Counsel Robert Mueller will have some important findings to release soon…
The Old Man and the Sea of Corruption. So many bottom feeders like Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross getting snagged and dragged to the surface. Mueller’s gonna need a bigger boat! https://t.co/NrLGWEFBsI pic.twitter.com/NdOH7ercJq

Occasionally, Carrey’s paintings will take on a more somber, reflective tone…

When addressing an issue as large and unbelievable as President Putin and Donald Trump’s relationship, however, it’s hard to be anything but cartoonish.

Carrey has commented to Huffpost:
I can’t just watch this nightmare unfold. It’s just a civilized way of dealing with it, to get on board with as many other voices as possible that are shouting from the rooftops.
