Jim Carrey Art Kills Off the House of Representatives

Universal Pictures

Actor Jim Carrey has once again tweeted out one of his politically charged primitive paintings, this time killing off all of Congress.

The former comedy star tweeted a painting showing an empty chair and desk set against a carpet that recalls a seen on the floors of Congress in Washington DC.

Along with the image, Carrey wrote, “Great men and women once occupied these desks. The House of Representatives, 1789 – 2016.”

The volatile actor also added a link to a website where potential voters can register to vote.

Jim Carrey’s art has generally focused on attacking President Donald Trump, such as his June piece depicting Trump crucifying Jesus Christ, but once in a while, he lashes out at Democrats, too.

In May, for instance, Carrey claimed that the Democrat Party was “rotting” away with a painting featuring a Democrat donkey’s decomposing corpse.

The Dumb and Dumber star has been filling his time with the often violent and blood-soaked paintings after finding his movie career floundering. Last year his move The Bad Batch struggled to even make $181,000 upon its debut in theaters and his next project, Dark Crimes, did not even get a debut in theaters going straight to home video instead.

After finding a dearth of success on the big screen, Carrey is returning to TV in the Showtime series Kidding, a sad-clown story of a troubled kids show host whose personal life is a wreck.
