Jim Carrey is not mincing words about the state of American politics these days.
Sitting down for an event on Saturday with New Yorker associate cartoon editor and humour writer Colin Stokes, the Canadian-born comedian was direct about U.S. President Donald Trump.
“We need to revisit presidential powers. I don’t think the founding fathers had a traitor in mind for the highest office,” he said, according to Inquisitr.
Asked about the confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh that day, Carrey added, “Today is not the end of the world. That is tentatively scheduled for November. But you can do something to change it!”
In one of the more unfiltered comments of the evening, Carrey gave his thoughts on the possibility that Kavanaugh will help to overturn Roe v. Wade, which protects women’s rights to abortion in America.
“What’s the positive there?” he asked. “Hanger sales go through the roof?”
Carrey showed his support last week for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who had accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in the early ’80s, by sharing a painting of her on Twitter and urging his followers to “avenge her in November” at the ballot box.
“I feel feelings, and that’s the only way I can deal with them is to turn them into something positive,” Carrey said, explaining his recent political artwork to Stokes. “All pain equals art.”
