There’s nothing sketchy about Jim Carrey’s depictions of President Donald Trump and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, as far as Michael Rapaport is concerned.
“Atypical” star, podcaster and author Rapaport came to Carrey’s defense Tuesday, after the “Ace Ventura” actor shared his portraits of Trump and Sanders, deeming the actor’s renderings “very fair.”
In a video posted to Twitter, Rapaport puzzled over why people “got all bent out of shape” over Carrey’s depictions.
“I don’t understand this s—. It’s not about the way she looks, it’s about the way she LOOKS,” Rapaport said.
“Sarah Huckabee Sanders looks like she used to play middle linebacker for the Chicago Bears when they didn’t wear helmets,” Rapaport continued. “She looks like the type of person who doesn’t mind wiping her a– with leaves.”
As for Carrey’s “fantastic’ portrait of Trump, which depicted the president in witch’s garb, Rapaport said, “I think it clearly depicts how he looks. This looks like Donald Trump with a blue witch hat on. I don’t understand what everybody’s upset about. If you don’t like it, Donald Trump, have somebody else paint you.”
“Leonardo Da Vinci himself couldn’t fix your f—ing face. You look like a f—ing witch,” Rapaport concluded.
Carrey unveiled his portrait of Sanders on Saturday, captioning his work, “This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!”
On Monday, he offered his portrayal of Trump, dubbing it, “THE WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST WING AND PUTIN’S FLYING MONKEYS.”
Carrey’s work was met with criticism, including from Ainsley Earhardt, co-host of Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.”
“There is a double standard,” Earhardt said during an interview with Turning Point USA Director of Urban Engagement Candace Owens. “Don’t Democrats, don’t they preach and march and protest and have women’s marches and they say ‘tolerance, tolerance, tolerance?’ Where’s the tolerance here?”
