Jim Carrey Calls Sarah Sanders A LiarLiar, Sparks Outrage With Painting

Mike Huckabee Isn’t Laughing

March 19th, 2018 – Jim Carrey has sparked quite the Internet outrage after sharing a painting he made which appears to be of the current White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The actor posted the portrait on St. Patrick’s Day and added a caption that only added fuel to the fire.

“This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous,” he tweeted to his over 17 million followers.

A spokesperson for Carrey confirmed to The Independent that the comedian did paint the portrait but wouldn’t specify who the subject was.

“The sketch is by Jim Carrey. I can’t confirm the sketch is of Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” they said.

Carrey started painting about six years ago and has made no secret of his opinion of the current administration and the GOP officials who carry water for the president. Over the past year everyone from Mitch McConnell and Marco Rubio to Devin Nunes and Paul Ryan have gotten the Carrey brush strokes. Those paintings also haven’t always called out the individual by name or been flattering – to say the least.

This time around, Carrey has received plenty of vocal backlash as people accused him of being sexist, hateful, and going too far in attacking her faith. Leading that charge was none other than Sanders’ father. The former governor of Arkansas took to Twitter to slam the painting and the artist.

He also tweeted this last year.

The discussion continued with those who agreed with Huckabee while others argued that the portrait was similar to the style of any other political cartoon you would find in a newspaper.

Kathy Griffin, who had her own trouble last year after releasing a photo of herself holding the severed head of Trump, spoke out in support of Carrey.

No comment yet from the White House, but Carrey did release another painting this morning.
