Jim Carrey just unveiled his suggestion for Trump's official portrait, and we can't look away
One of the many perks granted to former presidents is a portrait in the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. In February Barack and Michelle Obama revealed their official likenesses. And even though President Donald Trump is only in his second year in office, some comedians have already imagined what the 45th POTUS’s portrait will look like. Yesterday, March 29th, comedian Jim Carrey unveiled his own submission for Trump’s official portrait — and we can’t get the image out of our heads.
In a snarky tweet, Carrey posted a photo of his latest artistic work: A painting of a screaming Trump, bathrobe open to reveal his bare chest. In Carrey’s depiction, Trump appears to be stroking his chest while standing over a bowl filled with two scoops of chocolate ice cream.
This isn’t the first time Carrey has painted Trump in an unflattering light. On March 26th, the actor shared an image of the president bathing in sewage in response to Stormy Daniels’ 60 Minutes interview.
Carrey has also used his artwork to mock other members of the Trump administration. He received fierce criticism for a painting of Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and in his caption, he referred to her as “monstrous” and a “so-called Christian.” A previous portrait of Jared Kushner, named “Self-Unmade Man,” features the number “666” in the background.
Even though Carrey’s work most likely won’t end up in the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, it definitely leaves an impression. We’re wondering if we ever will stop screaming over this proposed portrait.
