For those of you who looked forward to each painted political release from Jim Carrey, I’ve got bad news.
It’s the end of an era.
For years now, the comedian’s used canvas and color to offer eyebrow-raising depictions of various Republicans.
But he’s decided to retire his partisan paints.
As reported by The Daily Wire, the film star made it clear via a note to his nearly-19 million Twitter followers.
Here’s how the artist expressed himself;
“For the past four years, among other commitments, I put considerable effort into this collection of political protest cartoons. It truly feels as though you and I have crossed an ocean of outrage together…but something tells me it’s time to rest my social media gavel and reclaim a little neurological bandwidth.”
Amid his mission to vanquish Donald Trump, Jim feels he ignored a lot of folks:
“If it seemed like I was ignoring my many Twitter followers here and outside the US and Canada in my quest to rid our democracy of ‘Orange Julius Caesar’ and his Empire of Lies, it was not my intention. I just assumed that a radicalized America is a threat to us all. When a madman grabs the wheel of the bus loaded with innocent passengers and threatens to drive it off a cliff, it tends to steal everyone’s focus.
He thanked everyone, letting ’em know how much they mean to him:
“You always have and always will occupy a sacred space in my grateful heart. Thank you kindly for all your patience, your support, your humor, and your [beautiful fan art].”
Carrey was apparently highly inspired by #45.
He put out some powerful pieces.
There was the depiction of demons…
And as the sun set upon the White House all its windows danced with glowing eyes — and demons’ voices growled to the prisoner within, saying, “Our name is legion, for we are many. You will be our hands in the world. It’s time for us to Tweet again.” pic.twitter.com/9BnWdE6hSp

From the bowels of the White House he shrieked, hurled curses and tweeted bile — because that’s what demons do. YOU are the Exorcist. Vote Democrat for goodness’ sake. https://t.co/EphA7EosbP pic.twitter.com/riVcX0PHCH

In the Republican realm generally, his Ted take was a…hell…of a stunner:

In one work, the President participated in the crucifixion:

And if I had to guess, I’d say Jim’s no fan of Sarah Huckabee Sanders:
Good Riddance, Sarah Huckabee Sanders! Now the only one you have to lie to is Jesus. pic.twitter.com/qeWYpNxrtF

This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous! pic.twitter.com/MeYLTy1pqb

Many of the pieces might be called grotesque, but personally, I’ve always loved the Wolfman; and this one moves:
No trick-or-treating this year. No bags of candies touched by strangers. This is his America; his house of horrors. His hideous transformation is almost complete. Your vote is the silver bullet. #BidenHarris pic.twitter.com/XIUyTA5SSq

The Halloween theme takes me back to the good ol’ days:
In 2018, Jim wished for an end to Trump’s presidency:
Oh how I urine for this all to be over! pic.twitter.com/uzLULtNPLE
— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) June 14, 2018
His wish finally came true.
And he made clear In January — he’s a fan of “sweetness”:
“I wept with joy and relief this morning. It seems Democracy is meant for people who dare to love after all. Oh, and if you’re wondering why a mango kills the witch in my last tweet…I believe it was the sweetness in human nature that defeated that man.
I pray that soon more and more of us will see how deeply satisfying it is to win the game by playing fair.”

So ends a series of works about America’s favorite eccentric New York billionaire.
But that won’t necessarily mean Jim’s done politically.
The entertainer doesn’t just paint his politics. He’s also voiced support for socialism — an economic system which takes away your right to own your own business.
In 2018, Jim told Real Time with Bill Maher:
“We have to say ‘Yes’ to socialism — to the word and everything. We have to stop apologizing.”
And now we’ll have to say Yes — it seems — without doing it In Living Color.
Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses…APRIL FOOOOLS!!! ;^P
