- Jim Carrey went after President Donald Trump in a new drawing on Tuesday after the former Trump associates Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen were found guilty of separate crimes on Tuesday.
- Carrey depicted Trump hanging upside down from a pole in a straitjacket with an American flag wrapped around his ankles.
- Carrey called him “The Great Spewdini,” saying he had spewed lies “to escape the straight-jacket of his un-Presidential criminality.”
Tuesday was a terrible day for President Donald Trump, and Jim Carrey – who has become known for his anti-Trump political artwork – quickly pounced on the opportunity for a scathing new drawing.
Carrey posted a drawing to Twitter on Tuesday depicting Trump hanging upside down from a pole by an American flag wrapped around his ankles, trapped in a straitjacket and his hair barely hanging to his head. In the background is a billboard that says “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 found guilty in separate cases on Tuesday.
A jury found Manafort guilty of eight counts relating to 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 the special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Cohen pleaded 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 helped him garner close to 18 million followers on Twitter.
He’s set to return to acting in the new Showtime series “Kidding” later this month.
