  • Jim Carrey went after President Trump in a new drawing
    on Tuesday after former Trump advisers Paul Manafort and
    Michael Cohen were both found guilty in separate crimes on
    Tuesday.
  • Carrey depicted Trump hanging upside down from a pole
    in a straightjacket with an American flag wrapped around his
    ankles.
  • Carrey called him “The Great Spewdini,” for allegedly
    spewing lies “to escape the straight-jacket of his
    un-Presidential criminality.”

 

Tuesday was a terrible day for President Trump, and Jim Carrey —
who’s become known for his anti-Trump political artwork — quickly
pounced on the opportunity for a new, scathing drawing.

Carrey posted a drawing to Twitter on Tuesday that depicts Trump
hanging upside down from a pole by an American flag wrapped
around his ankles, trapped in a straightjacket and his hair
barely hanging to his head. In the background is a billboard that
reads “Death of a Salesman.” 

Carrey said in the caption, “Manafort, GUILTY! Cohen,
GUILTY! Flynn, Guilty! Gates, Guilty! What’s happening to All the
Best People? ‘Ladies and Gentlemen! Children of all ages! Can the
Great Spewdini spew enough lies to escape the straight-jacket of
his un-Presidented criminality?'”

Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former lawyer
Michael Cohen were both found guilty of separate crimes in
separate courts on Tuesday.

A jury found Manafort guilty on eight counts of
financial crimes
and was undecided on 10 others. While
not directly related to Russian interference in the 2016
election, Manafort’s conviction marks the first major victory in
special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Cohen reached a
plea deal with prosecutors and plead guilty to numerous
charges
, including breaking campaign finance law.

Carrey has been a vocal critic of Trump, his administration, and
the Republican party this year and his political art has garnered
him close to 18 million followers on Twitter.

He’ll return to acting in Showtime’s upcoming series, “Kidding,”
later this month.
