Actor Jim Carrey unveiled a bizarre drawing of Abraham Lincoln with a gun in his mouth on Monday, and went on to claim that Lincoln would have killed himself had he seen the lineup of speakers from this year’s Republican National Convention.
As The Daily Wire reports:
On Monday, actor Jim Carrey, whose artistic impulse incessantly leads him to create images that target conservatives, issued his latest tour-de-force, a drawing of President Abraham Lincoln, the first GOP president, putting a rifle in his mouth, ostensibly to commit suicide from watching the Republican National Convention. The drawing was captioned, “If Lincoln had seen the lineup of liars, thieves, religious hypocrites and racist ne’er-do-wells that would appear at the RNC in 2020…”

A brief look at Carrey’s vitriol:
In March 2018, Carrey painted a portrait many people saw as former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, captioning it, “This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!”

In June 2018, Carrey posted another work showing Calvin from “Calvin & Hobbes” urinating on President Trump’s grave. It was captioned, “Oh how I urine for this all to be over!” The inscription on the cartoon grave read: “HERE LIES NO.45. WENT TO HELL AND TOOK THE GOP WITH HIM.”

Clearly Carey’s mental health is very much in question, still it’s hard to say that the sentiments he conveys with his unhinged drawings aren’t shared by much of the Democratic party of which he is so fond.
