LOS ANGELES – For the past two years, Jim Carrey has become famous for his anti-Donald Trump artwork as his actor. And he seems okay with that.
“Social media is a canvas for me,” said Carrey at the Vulture Festival in Los Angeles on Sunday during a Q & A with Art critic Jerry Saltz. “And I think if used in the way of expressing the truth or anything in an artistic way, it’s a beautiful thing.”
The award-winning actor has turned to Twitter in the Trump Presidency to showcase his burning political characters – with the President and his “minions”, as Carrey notices them.
Carrey said when he started using Twitter in a more political way, he tried to deter him. “There was much pressure on me from my leadership, from those responsible [who],” Do not Touch This, “he said.
He reminded them that” if you start talking about politics you will lose half by your audience. “Carrey Reaction?” I say, “Lose them.” “
It seems that many of his fans do not mind political activism because Carrey still has a lot of 18.1 million followers on the platform – and lines
“Trump is a melanoma and someone who covers him, including Sarah Sanders, puts on makeup,” says Carrey. “These people must be removed from our system because they are bad for us.”
Some of the “These People” Carrey referred to and features in his paragraphs include: Majority Leader of Senate Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), As Carrey described as a “poison in our system we must cleanse” and vice president Mike Pence, as Carrey said has a face that is “the face of absolute insincerity.”
But it’s not all critical art.
Carrey has recently emphasized Beto O & # 39; Rourke. “A star was born,” he wrote in a tweet that followed a sketch of the Democratic American Senate candidate who lost his bid to loosen GOP Sen Ted Cruz in Texas.
Under the panel he said he would love to see Beto Rourke and Kamala Harris “as a democratic presidential ticket in 2020.
” I think she’s amazing and he’s an incredible guy. “
