Jim Carrey tore a page from the Dr. Seuss catalog over the weekend, paying homage to the beloved children’s book author with his latest pictorial jab at President Donald Trump.
For his most recent poke at the president, Carrey turned to the Dr. Seuss story “The Sneetches.”
“Then, quickly Trumpy McMonkey McBean/Put together a very peculiar machine,” Carrey’s text accompanying the artwork reads. “And he said, ‘You want stars like the fancy elite…? My friends, you can have them — just drop at my feet!'”
For those who might be a little rusty on the Dr. Seuss canon, “The Sneetches” revolves around a society of yellow, vaguely avian creatures, some of whom bear green stars on their bellies and discriminate against those who don’t. Enter the character Sylvester McMonkey McBean, who offers to give star-less Sneetches the coveted marking — for a price, of course.
In danger of becoming not-so-elite, the original star-bearing Sneetches grow upset. leading McBean to offer the services of his star-removing machine — for an even higher price.
Behold Carrey’s latest work below.
