Jim Carrey called for his withdrawal from his political cartoons, a passion project that caused a sensation during the administration of former President Donald Trump.
Carrey wrote on Twitter on Saturday that he is stopping these cartoons (usually dark cartoons of Trump and his supporters) in order to “take back a bit of neurological bandwidth.”
The “Dumb and Dumb” actor shot at his usual target, calling Trump the “Orange Julius Caesar” who rules “his empire of lies.”
Kerry wrote: “In the past four years, among other promises, I have made great efforts in this set of political protest cartoons. This really makes you and me cross the ocean of anger.”
Carey ceased execution as the “Saturday Night Live” in December, then President-elect Biden.
Why did he do this: Jim Carrey drew Trump’s cartoon because “I can’t just watch this nightmare happen”
Carrey said in a statement on Saturday that it is important to point out Trump’s actions when he was president. “I just thought the radical America was a threat to all of us. When a madman grabs the steering wheel of a bus with innocent passengers and threatens to drive it off a cliff, it tends to take everyone’s attention.”
Dear Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery @NPG, I know it’s too early, but I want to make it an official portrait of our 45th President Donald J. Trump. It’s called “You scream. I scream. Will we stop screaming? pic.twitter.com/LrCmlXXpv7

Carrey said in a speech to a TV reporter in 2018 that this comment is imperative.
He said: “Making a cartoon is not an option. I did it because I can’t just watch this nightmare happen.”
On February 13, in Carrey’s final political painting, Trump held a nearly burnt firework called “American Virtue.”
His farewell painting is a self-portrait with arms outstretched in front of the door. “Just in case I can’t see you.” Carrey wrote on it.
