Jim Carrey’s opinion of Jeff Flake, going down!
Actor/artist Carrey turned his artistic talents toward Sen. Jeff Flake on Thursday, addressing the confrontation that Flake had with two women over the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court as Flake boarded an elevator last month.
Flake supported an FBI investigation into a sexual misconduct accusation against Kavanaugh shortly after the confrontation, during which one of the protesters told him, “I was sexually assaulted and nobody believed me. I didn’t tell anyone and you’re telling all women that they don’t matter, that they should just stay quiet, because if they tell you what happened to them, you’re going to ignore them.”
However, on Thursday he told reporters that the probe had produced “no additional corroborating information,” a turn of events that seems to be reflected in Carrey’s latest piece.
Carrey’s new artwork re-created the elevator confrontation, with the accompanying caption, “He’s not a hero but he (briefly) played one on TV.”
Carrey included a link to the voter-registration site Vote.gov in the caption.
