Fox News is very upset today with comedian Jim Carrey, calling him, “another Hollywood elite, taking aim at the White House, painting Sarah Sanders, as a monster.” Oh, my. Here’s Carrey’s portrait on twitter — with no name tag, by the by, so if Fox News thinks it looks like a monstrous depiction of the press secretary, well, apparently Jim Carrey was able to hit a nerve, and convey, at the very least, who he was painting. Or maybe it was his tag line, referring to a lying Christian that did it.

Carrey’s exact line was, “This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!”
Of course Faux News is making with the faux outrage, and twitter is blowing that back hard and fast.
So let me get this straight…
Republicans support men who molest underage girls, harass women, pay off porn stars, ask women to have their baby, and want to lock up women without due process…
But Jim Carrey drawing an unfavorable portrait is crossing the line.

Fox News can’t stand it that one of their own kind, which Huckabee Sanders emphatically is, is being called out. The hilarious part is that by calling attention to this piece, it’s now becoming iconic. Jim Carrey paints political art and right now he’s probably laughing his way all the way to the bank. When will Fox ever learn?
