In the last couple weeks, great comedian — and prolific painter — Jim Carrey has locked his sites on two lady Trump officials.
On December 19th, artist Jim offered what I might call a less-than-complimentary depiction of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders:
Beware the Gorgon.
She’ll turn your heart to stone. pic.twitter.com/mGwn7GClea

“Gorgon,” incidentally, describes each of three snake-haired sisters in Greek mythology, one of whom is Medusa.
On the 27th, Jim mused over Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen, who Carrey labeled a kidnapping murderer — a reference to the recent deaths of two children while in U.S. Customs and Border Protection custody (see here, here, here, and here).
Now we add a second child to your list of murders. Callin’ it your job don’t make it right, Fraulein Kirstjen. pic.twitter.com/ZYGo6Ny18N

For your viewing pleasure, here are a few more Carrey creations. He’s got a lot to say:
Mississippi you are BETTER than these hate-mongers.
Show the world.

And as the sun set upon the White House all its windows danced with glowing eyes — and demons’ voices growled to the prisoner within, saying, “Our name is legion, for we are many. You will be our hands in the world. It’s time for us to Tweet again.” pic.twitter.com/9BnWdE6hSp

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

Jim Carrey is a brilliant entertainer, and Dumb & Dumber will remain — in my mind — one of the greatest comedies of all time.
I’d be surprised if his recent work earns him more conservative fans. If I had to guess, I’d say most people don’t like to mix their entertainment and their politics.
Then again, most all of political TV is now evidently intended to entertain.
As for women in the administration, it’s an interesting contrast: Those across the aisle appear determined to paint the President as anti-woman.
Yet, whichever women he puts in authoritative positions…those same critics attack.
So it’s okay to be anti-woman, if the woman works for Trump…because Trump is bad — he’s anti-woman.
Did I get that right?
One thing’s for sure: Politics — like virtue — is getting more and more complicated.
