Actor Jim Carrey Slams “So-Called Christian” Sarah Huckabee Sanders in Painting

Actor Jim Carrey ignited a firestorm when he posted an original drawing on Twitter that bore a striking (and not all that inaccurate) resemblance to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The best part was the caption:

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

Conservative Twitter was not happy:

“We all sin,” one user tweeted in response. Another shared a meme of someone lifting the lid of a trash can. “Hey look celebrity opinions,” the photo’s text read. One Twitter user shared a photo of Carrey, writing “And this is the picture of a has-been, who hasn’t put out a decent movie in 15 years.”

Sanders’ father, former Arkansas governor-turned-TV pundit Mike Huckabee, also hurled insults at Carrey on the social media site. “Pathetic BULLY, sexist, hater, bigot & ‘Christaphobe’ @jimcarrey attacks @PressSec for her faith; what would be hypocritical Hollywood reaction if he called someone a ‘so-called Muslim’ or ‘so-called Jew?’ the former governor of Arkansas tweeted, adding #classlesscarrey.”

Carrey’s caption is perfect as is. It’s pretty clear that he wasn’t attacking Sanders’ faith, just her hypocrisy.

For a religion that is supposed to be concerned about the truth, lying to the public on a daily basis is hardly living according to Christian values. Sure, “everyone sins,” but Sanders’ lying isn’t a mere slip-up here and there, nor is she lying with noble intentions (like telling a friend her new haircut looks amazing even when you hate it to avoid hurting her feelings, or telling a Nazi officer “Nope, not hiding any Jews here”).

Sanders’ lies are a lifestyle choice. And she deserves to be constantly called out on that hypocrisy.
