Jim Carrey definitely did not head into the weekend quietly on Friday.
Less than two hours after offering his take on longtime Donald Trump associate Roger Stone’s early-Friday arrest, actor-artist Carrey unveiled yet another piece of art — this time apparently referencing the short-term deal between Trump and Congress to end the government shutdown.
Carrey’s latest depicted Trump as a soccer goalie, unsuccessfully attempting to prevent the ball from making its way into the net.
While failing at blocking the shot, Trump is wearing a shirt reading, “No 1 Loser.”
“NANCY SCORES!” Carrey wrote in accompaniment of the illustration, an apparent reference to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Trump announced a short-term deal with Congress to end the partial government shutdown on Friday.
Trump and the Democrats had been at a standoff of the president’s demand for $5.7 billion to build a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. “We have reached a deal to end the shutdown,” Trump said during an announcement at the White House’s Rose Garden.
The government will reopen for three weeks, until Feb. 15, while negotiations continue over Trump’s desire to build a wall on the southern border continues. “After 36 days of spirited debate and dialogue, I have seen and heard from enough Democrats and Republicans that they are willing to partisanship aside, I think, and put the security of the American people first,” Trump said.
Speaking of spirited debate and dialogue, check out Carrey’s latest art below — and feel free to offer your thoughts in the comments section.

Jim Carrey Depicts a Destructive Trump Presidency in 62 of His Politically Charged Artworks (Photos)
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.
