Jim Carrey Hit Out At Trump, Called Him A 'Melanoma'
Jim Carrey had some strong words for the US president over the weekend.
The actor spoke out against Trump and the Republican party while in conversation at Vulture Festival in Hollywood -- calling the president "incredibly dangerous, a threat to homeland security".
He added that bipartisanship was out of the question in the current political climate because "these are not people you can deal with", referring to Republican politicians.
"These people have to be removed from our system because they're bad for us. Trump is a melanoma, and anybody that covers for him, including Sarah Sanders, is putting makeup on it. It shows that there's a deeper problem in this country, and that problem is greed," he said.
The actor -- who is also an artist -- has been sharing a number of his politically charged paintings that have recently featured Trump, Mitch McConnell and James Mattis.
Carrey said he was initially warned that his political art would kill his career -- and not to post his work to Twitter.
“It was interesting, because when I first starting playing on Twitter like everyone else, I got in trouble because I was honest," he said at Vulture Fest.
"There was a lot of pressure on me from my management going like, 'Don’t mess this up, you got it going good and people love you, when you talk about politics and other issues, you’re going to lose half of your audience'.
And I said, ‘Lose them.’ You just have to go your own way and say your peace and truth, and that’s what I’m doing.”
