Jim Carrey Draws “Ted Cruz Hellbound 2020”
Hollywood actor and comedian Jim Carrey, who had recently gained notoriety over his sarcastic and satirical political sketches, added another political victim in his long line of bizarre drawings.
In his recent sketch entitled “Ted Cruz, Hellbound Class of 2020,” the comedian depicted prominent Republican figure, Senator Ted Cruz burning in hell. The scary sketch showed the Senator screaming while being engulfed in flames.

However, instead of being upset, the Republican Senator had the last laugh. In fact, Cruz even shared the photo with a caption, “Hey, @JimCarrey, can I get a copy of this for my office?”
Over the past years, Carrey had constantly made fun of the administration by depicting them in satirical political artworks. Back in August, the actor shared a drawing of former U.S. president Abraham Lincoln with a rifle in his mouth. Carrey wrote that if only Lincoln knew that his own political party would have a “line-up” of thieves, racists, and religious hypocrites, then the U.S. president might have killed himself.
If Lincoln had seen the lineup of liars, thieves, religious hypocrites and racist ne’er-do-wells that would appear at the RNC in 2020... pic.twitter.com/TZN20qjpEU— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) August 24, 2020
In another Twitter post, Carrey accused President Donald Trump of committing murder. Like most Democrats such as Hollywood filmmakers Rob Reiner, and Michael Moore, Carrey believed that Trump should be charged with murder for being responsible for the thousands of deaths resulting forn the coronavirus pandemic. In his tweet, Carrey claimed that the U.S. and the U.K. both had the worst coronavirus death toll in the world. He also described Trump, alongside British Prime Minister Borris Johnson, as “infamous ghost twins from The Shining.” The comedian declared that such deaths could have been prevented under a more competent leadership.
90,0000 in the US, over 40,000 in the UK. Highest death tolls in the covid world. Half of those deaths...preventable. REDRUM! REDRUM!! REDRUM!!! pic.twitter.com/swu7FYtdpQ— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) May 17, 2020
In an article for the left-wing media outlet, The Atlantic, the comedian declared that Americans support Trump because he appeals to the people’s primitive urges of “racism, misogyny, and mockery.” Carrey even accused Trump of encouraging violence.
In the said article, Carrey likened Trump’s RNC speech to the baptism scene in the iconic movie, The Godfather. He wrote that “Watching Trump accept the nomination of the Republican Party in the people’s house during a pandemic he exacerbated was like watching Michael Corleone swear a sacred oath while his underlings settled scores across the city.”
Back in January, Carrey vowed that he would not make satirical drawings against Trump. The comedian explained that for the new year, he wanted to avoid negative things, like the President. However, just a few months later, Carrey went back to hois old, Trump hating way.
