No lie — Jim Carrey is not a fan of Sarah Huckabee Sanders. In case there was any doubt about the matter.
Actor/artist Carrey turned his eye toward White House press secretary Sanders on Wednesday with his latest political cartoon, casting her as a “Gorgon” who will “turn your heart to stone.”
“Beware the Gorgon,” Carrey wrote of his Sanders portrait. “She’ll turn your heart to stone.”
That would be an apparent reference to the monster of Greek mythology — which, according to lore, was able to turn those who gazed upon it to stone.
In his portrait of Sanders, Carrey adorned her hair with the word “Lies” over and over again, like so many snakes.
Carrey didn’t specify a particular offense that inspired his latest work. However, the cartoon itself inspired a number of spirited comments.
Such as the limerick, “[T]here once was a lady named Sanders/to the crooks and the nazis she pandered/ with a mouthful of lies/ ‘I’m honest!’ she cried/peddling ‘alternative facts’ and slander.”
And, “How does she keep her stories straight when she can’t even keep her eyes straight.”
And, “This painting of @PressSec is so accurate, I thought it was a photograph; right down to the gecko-like eyes that give her a 270° field of vision.”

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.
