Carrey¿s Twitter account features dozens of pieces of his artwork and are often topic such as this one of Stephen Hawking who died last week at the age of 76

On Saturday, the actor shared a sketch of an angry-looking woman with the caption, "This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only goal in life is to lie for the wicked". "This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only goal in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!", the actor wrote in a caption. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Trump's chief of staff, John F. Kelly.

Monday afternoon, Carrey tweeted another one of his paintings and wrote, "If you liked my last cartoon you may also enjoy..."

A spokeswoman confirmed to the Associated Press that Carrey did create the harsh masterpiece, but she would not reveal who the woman in the painting was.

The tweet quickly went viral as Twitter users began to speculate whether the portrait was indeed of Sanders, criticizing Carrey for "mocking" Christianity. "It's ok to be mean and hurtful as long as it's to someone you disagree with, right?"

USA students stage walkouts in the thousands to protest gun violence
About 200 students were given by permission by the school to walk out and march for more than two miles before returning to class. The Second Amendment is the right to bear arms, and the 14th Amendment guarantees equal protection under the law.

"I'd bet my bank account that if Jim Carrey had made a portrait of Hillary Clinton instead of Sarah Sanders, the Trumpers would be loving it".

Jim Carrey shared an original portrait over the weekend, and conservatives on Twitter are not happy with the Canadian-born comedian. "Suddenly, six years ago, at a time when I was trying to heal a broken heart, I decided, 'Well, maybe I'll paint'".

Today, a portrait of Sarah Huckabee Sanders attracted more attention that any of Carrey's previous works, though his anti-Facebook composite (I'll call it "Fakebook") was certainly a pointed statement.
