America is gravely ill, according to Jim Carrey — and as far as he’s concerned, the only cure can be found in the voting booth.
Actor/artist Carrey unleashed his latest artwork Wednesday morning, declaring that America is suffering from cancer and urging people to vote in the midterm elections, which he called the country’s “last chance at remission.”
In a message accompanying the artwork, Carrey declared that “40 percent of the US doesn’t care if Trump deports ppl, kidnaps their babies and uses them as political hostages.”
He added, “The time for diagnosis is over. It’s cancer. Midterms are America’s last chance at remission. REGISTER TO VOTE. We can beat this disease!”
The message contained a link to the voter-registration site vote.gov.
The artwork itself depicted the Statue of Liberty sitting in a chair, an IV drip hooked up to her arm.
On Tuesday, Carrey also criticized Trump’s immigration policy with a cannibalism-themed spoof of Trump’s 1987 memoir “The Art of the Deal.”
Presumably channeling Trump, Carrey offered a quote to set up his artwork.
“If the Democrats would just stop the Mueller investigation, build a wall, declare me a God and pass a special law allowing me to marry my hot daughter I wouldn’t have to devour these immigrant babies,” the quote reads. “It’s terrible what they’re doing. Obstructionists!”
Carrey’s piece offered a nightmarish spoof of the “Art of the Deal” book cover, depicting a fanged Trump as he appears ready to gnaw into a human leg.

Actor throws political punches at the president regarding gun violence, immigration, Putin and the state of the country
Jim Carrey has made his disdain for the current state of politics an artform... literally. The Oscar-nominated actor-turned-artist's series of drawings depict all that he believes to be wrong in D.C., from foreign policy to immigration to the GOP in general. But his biggest gripe goes right to the top with President Trump himself. Here are just a few of his many objets d'art that lay out his discontent for all to see.
