Say what you will about Jim Carrey, but he’s certainly tapped into the political outrage that Americans feel with Donald Trump and his band of thieves in office.
In recent days, the comic actor-turned-artist has skewered Trump’s new personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, new NRA president and Reagan-era gunrunner Oliver North, Vice President Mike Pence, and of course Trump himself.
This time Carrey tackled Trump’s failed efforts at diplomacy with North Korea. He depicts Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, encouraging North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to attend an upcoming summit with Trump. The devastatingly on-point caption reads,
“Just take the damn meeting and pretend you’re disarming, so we can keep this stooge in the White House for another term. When democracy is dead we’ll give you a seat at the grown-up’s table. You’ll be even more famous than the Kim with the big ass.”

Carrey shared his latest politically charged painting on Twitter Wednesday morning shortly after North Korea threatened to pull out of the historic June 12 summit in Singapore.
The reaction on Twitter was jubilant:
Some of the best political art ever

Nothing but the blessed truth. You are on a one man mission for truth. We have been talking to you on another account, is it really you? Thought u were coming on the bus with Woody Harrelson and Willie Nelson? U could paint on the way. Blessings

Yep…I've said all along, the whole thing's covered in 'Russian dressing'.

I, too, have wondered if Kim isn't in Putin's pocket and all this is set up as a drama…. possibly to make Trump look good, or the opposite. Kim owes Putin for missile tech and help breaking embargo(fuel etc)

Spot on @JimCarrey. Media and masses are missing the entire story of this NK negotiation. Russia and China are for sure pulling strings to maximize their power which Trump is happy to let them do, so long as he looks like he’s winning. This whole thing is a sham

Your tweets help with my horrible frustration with this administration my friend. Thanks for the fine art and the great tweets. I wonder how Mother Meera and all of the great ones look at this? It shall pass…

As the Huffington Post notes, this isn’t the first time Carrey has painted Trump as a stooge of hostile world powers. Last November he wrote,
They bailed him out, set him up and made him their stooge. With Trump in the WH, Putin may win the 3rd World War without firing a shot. #PuckerUpPOTUS
