‘Blasphemer In Chief’ Trump Has Something On His Hands In Jim Carrey Cartoon

Published: (Updated: ) in Australian News by .

The Good Book is anything but in the hands of Donald Trump, according to a new cartoon by actor Jim Carrey.

The sketch posted Monday night shows the president holding up what appears to be a Bible just as he did in a photo-op a week after the police killing of George Floyd. The military unleashed tear gas on peaceful protesters to make way for Trump so he could pose with the Bible. But in the artwork, blood pours from the Bible down Trump’s arm.

“Blasphemer-in-Chief,” reads the caption.

The comedian’s work could be attacking the president for what critics say is pretend piety ― and perhaps for the blood that may be on his hands because of the violent rhetoric he has used instead of trying to unify the country during the unrest.

Just hours after Carrey’s post, Trump forwarded an unfounded conspiracy theory that the 75-year-old man who was pushed to the ground by Buffalo police, causing him to bleed out of his ear, was a “set up.” (Carrey had expressed his horror at the incident in a recent work.)

Carrey, a comic-turned-artist who is one of the president’s fiercest opponents in Hollywood, hasn’t shied away from religious-themed takedowns of Trump. In 2018, he portrayed the president crucifying Christ.

Christianity, Trump style: “Jesus was a loser. A failed carpenter. He’s a savior because he was crucified. I like people that weren’t crucified.” https://t.co/NrLGWEXcRipic.twitter.com/tiSCoPdTpX

He also depicted Trump as a prisoner of demonic forces.

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
