When Jim Carrey presented his latest artwork over the weekend, it wasn’t met with the same kind of applause George W. Bush gets for his finger paintings. Instead, a lot of people took umbrage that his portrait of a “so-called Christian” looked eerily reminiscent of the White House press briefing room possum Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and now think the only job Jim is qualified for is sandwich boy at Quiznos so long as he doesn’t try and squirt any liberal snowflake sauce on their six-inch sub!
HuffPost says Jim’s spokeswoman confirmed the portrait he tweeted was his own artwork but wouldn’t say if it was supposed to be Sarah. See for yourself:
This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous! pic.twitter.com/MeYLTy1pqb

I mean, if it sneers like a Sarah, and snipes like a Sarah…it’s probably Sarah! The Twitter-verse handled it about as well as you can imagine, so naturally everyone but, surprisingly, Donald Trump weighed in to say Jim would be lucky to get so much as a Hallmark movie to his IMDb page going forward. Sarah’s dad, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee showed he has a working thesaurus when he lambasted Jim for coming for his daughter:
Pathetic BULLY, sexist, hater, bigot & "Christaphobe" @jimcarrey attacks @PressSec for her faith; what would be hypocritical Hollywood reaction if he called someone a "so-called Muslim" or "so-called Jew?" #classlessCarrey https://t.co/HCqHoER0Ru

Donnie shouldn’t feel left out, as Jim made time to do one of him, too:

Eric and Donald Trump Jr. have never looked better! Jim has been painting since he was a kid, but I’m not sure his lifetime of experience properly depicted Sarah. A New York Times profile once said she had a look “as if a foul odor had wafted in and she knew — just knew — that the culprit was CNN.” I dunno…Jim’s portrait makes it seem like she’s on the Titanic and was just informed all the lifeboats left without her, which, I mean, isn’t THAT far from reality. In that case, great work, Jim!
