Carrey tweeted an image of his latest work of art on inauguration day, which read: “Oh… and goodbye worst first lady. I hope the settlement can finance your life in the shallow end,” he wrote. “Thx for nothing.”
Fans were quick to applaud the comedian's work. “That's actually a pretty good likeness. You've captured the apathy and vapidity,” one user wrote, while another said: “I think you've captured her very essence here...good job, Jim.”
Others disagreed with his accusations and slammed the actor for “bullying” Melania. “Absolutely appalling to attack the First Lady who did her job with grace and dignity and got nothing but criticism from everyone on the left,” a user commented, adding, “it's shameful that not one woman from the left defended another woman for these baseless attacks.”
Carrey’s negative views on the Trump administration come as no surprise. After the January 6 violent riots that rocked D.C., Carrey painted the former president as a “killer clown” who is “here to murder the truth and weaponize ignorance.”
“Today’s defilement of the Capitol dome is the harvest of Republican negligence and outright sedition from the top down,” he wrote. “The chronic symptoms of a corrupt President and Senate are now in full effect.”
With all the attacks on Melania since leaving the White House, she appears unbothered by it all. A clip of her refusing to pose with Donald when they arrived in Palm Beach, Fla., from D.C. recently went viral.
As the two exited the plane, Donald himself paused to wave at photographers, but his wife, in dark sunglasses, continued walking — stone-faced — until she was completely offscreen, leaving the former president awkwardly standing there solo.
Social media was quick to comment on the video. “If ‘I’m over it’ were a person,” the Lincoln Project tweeted out, while another said, “I knew @FLOTUS45 was over it when she wore those flats instead of high heels like she normally would. I don't blame you girl!”
