Ace Ventura star Jim Carrey published an article that accused Trump of ruining “untold American lives” during his time in office.
In an unhinged op-ed published in The Atlantic on Thursday, Carrey wrote that because of Trump’s presidency, “the rule of law is imperiled, our unity has been shattered, the service sector has been obliterated, and major cities are suffering.”
The comedian-cum-painter brazenly compared the President’s acceptance of the Republican nomination to The Godfather’s fictional mobster, Michael Corleone. “Swear a sacred oath while his underlings settled scores across the city,” in reference to a sequence in the movie where Al Pacino orders the murders of family enemies during the titular baptism.
He took target at Trump’s atypical move to host the RNC at the White House, calling it a “flagrant violation of the Hatch Act,” and accused audience members risking other American’s lives by attending the event, which he dramatically labeled a “Totally Illegal COVID-19 Super-Spreader Spectacular.”
Almost as cleverly titled as the “Drown Out Trump Live GoGo Show and Noise Demo,” held just beyond the White House perimeter during the President’s speech. As if the thousands of liberal’s moshing at a permit-less rave and screaming inches from RNC attendees’ faces didn’t “risk infecting other Americans,” while “leaving us helpless during the plague.”
The guy who made millions off the slapstick stupidity of Dumb and Dumber had the gaul to criticize Trump’s Hollywood career, like hosting a long running television show somehow lessened his ability to lead the country.
He painted Trump as a “bourgeois New York con artist,” and accused him of trying to sabotage the election. According to Carrey, Trump’s supporters only ally with him because he “appeals to their basest and most primitive urges” of racism, misogyny, and encouragement of violence.
Carrey called the economy “larceny and lies,” clearly upset that the President kept his campaign promise for economic growth, causing markets to rise and corporations to prosper.
“The United States faces catastrophe,” the former funny man pleaded. “Untold American lives have been ruined by the presidency of Donald Trump.”
