Way to sheik things up, Jim Carrey.
Actor-artist Carrey once again graced his Twitter followers with a pictorial criticism of Trump on Tuesday, depicting Trump cozying up to a figure that appeared to be Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Behind the two figures, a dump truck appeared to be dropping a load of cash in front of the White House.
“Tres Sheik,” Carrey wrote of the image.
While Carrey didn’t offer further commentary on the image, the “Kidding” star posted the cartoon on the same day that Trump questioned whether bin Salman had knowledge regarding the killing of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi last month.
Trump issued a statement Tuesday reading in part, “Our intelligence agencies continue to assess all information, but it could very well be that the Crown Prince had knowledge of this tragic event — maybe he did and maybe he didn’t!”
In the statement, Trump also cited Saudi Arabia’s agreement to “spend and invest $450 billion in the United States.”
“After my heavily negotiated trip to Saudi Arabia last year, the Kingdom agreed to spend and invest $450 billion in the United States,” Trump’s statement read. “This is a record amount of money. It will create hundreds of thousands of jobs, tremendous economic development, and much additional wealth for the United States. Of the $450 billion, $110 billion will be spent on the purchase of military equipment from Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and many other great U.S. defense contractors. If we foolishly cancel these contracts, Russia and China would be the enormous beneficiaries – and very happy to acquire all of this newfound business. It would be a wonderful gift to them directly from the United States!”

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.
