Despite mixed results for the Democratic party in Tuesday night’s midterm elections, Jim Carrey clearly isn’t feeling blue about things.
Well, not in the traditional sense of the phrase, anyway.
On Wednesday, after the Democrats won control of the House of Representatives but failed to take the Senate, actor/artist Carrey graced fans with his latest political artwork. In it, Carrey praised the “record numbers of women who rose to the challenge of restoring the balance.”
He also singled out Beto O’Rourke, who was ultimately defeated by incumbent Ted Cruz for a Senate seat representing Texas.
In his post, Carrey predicted of O’Rourke that there are “great things in store for this budding Mr. Smith.”
“My congratulations to the record numbers of women who rose to the challenge of restoring the balance. Also last night a Star was born: Beto O’Rourke: a smart and decent guy who very nearly turned Texas blue,” Carrey wrote. “There are great things in store for this budding Mr. Smith.”
The accompanying image depicted O’Rourke addressing the Senate, clutching at papers in his hands, in an apparent homage to the classic James Stewart film “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.”
Following the tight race for the Senate spot, O’Rourke delivered a passionate concession speech, during which he declared, “I’m so f—ing proud of you guys.”
Clearly, as far as Carrey is concerned, the pride is mutual.
