However, his feelings about the day's events did not end with the piece. Carrey hit Trump in the title of the portrait, posted on Twitter.

"Today they tried to assassinate two presidents, as well as public servants and journalists," Carrey said in his speech. cheep. "Make no mistake, these terrorists were encouraged and emboldened by Donald Trump's hate speech – if you can not see the clear threat of this man's influence at this time, then you are part of it."

Suspicious and potentially explosive packages were sent to high-ranking Democrats in Washington, DC, Florida and New York, as well as to the CNN office in New York in the two weeks before the midterm elections.

Carrey has created a complete collection of political portraits last year. Last month, he painted a portrait of Senator Lindsey Graham, whom Carrey called "appalling."

Carrey has not shied away from his political stance against Trump and his administration. This summer, he explained that he draws the cartoons because "he can not just see how this nightmare develops."
