Carrey took to Twitter on Monday to post his latest cartoon, in which he dubbed Trump “Dishonest Don.”
The IRS doesn’t do Fake News. We paid for the billionaire lifestyle of Dishonest Don and his creepy friends. Maybe it’s time for all of US to stop paying our taxes and report giant fake losses so we can be billionaires too! Hmmm… pic.twitter.com/eoGMPApP8e

“The IRS doesn’t do Fake News. We paid for the billionaire lifestyle of Dishonest Don and his creepy friends,” wrote Carrey captioning the drawing, which appeared to show a sweaty Trump hanging out with the late disgraced billionaire, Jeffrey Epstein.
“Maybe it’s time for all of US to stop paying our taxes and report giant fake losses so we can be billionaires too!”, he added.

“Top Chef” host Padma Lakshmi said that Trump is “the fraud we knew he was.”
He's the fraud we knew he was.
"In 2018… Trump announced in his disclosure that he had made at least $434.9 million.
The tax records deliver a very different portrait of his bottom line: $47.4 million in losses." https://t.co/jrfJDpahCZ

Director Ava DuVernay also took to Twitter to express her shock at the bombshell reports.
“Trump paid $750 in federal income tax the year he won the presidency. In his first year in the White House, he paid another $750. He had paid NO INCOME TAXES at all in 10 of the previous 15 years.”
