Notorious actor Jim Carrey has recently shifted his focus towards the creation of political artwork. His art, which satirizes elected officials, has drawn support and media attention for its below-the-belt attacks.
The Ace Ventura star, who picked up painting approximately six years ago, demonstrated exactly what he thought about the president's son-in-law and senior advisor, Jared Kushner, in a new satirical portrait. In a drawing, Carrey depicted Ivanka Trump's husband while describing him as a “Self-Unmade Man.”

While the subject of the art is an unnamed man, but he has the appearance of Kushner. The caricature version of the business mogul is standing ominously with dollar signs in his eyes. Behind him is a building that is being burnt to the ground.
It has been hypothesized that the building in the background is Kushner's 41-story office building between 52nd and 53rd Streets in New York City. This is because the structure features the number 666 on it, which could refer to 666 Fifth Avenue property in Midtown Manhattan.
Carrey's work is published on Twitter for the world to see. His posts have a significant trend in which they attack key members of the Trump administration.
In addition to the president, Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, former White House Chief Strategists Steve Bannon, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, Congressman Devin Nunes, Senator Marco Rubio and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan have all been satirized by the renowned actor.
Just a couple of days before his latest illustration, Carrey faced a strong backlash after posting a portrait that ridiculed White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
In a Tweet last weekend, Carrey posted the image along with “This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!”

Earlier this week, he posted a piece on Trump with the caption, “If you liked my last cartoon you may also enjoy… “THE WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST WING AND PUTIN’S FLYING MONKEYS“

Kushner was named a senior White House advisor earlier this year and consequently resigned as CEO of Kushner Companies, but is now under investigation as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe. Kushner has insisted that his four meetings with Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign and transition period were properly facilitated.
Last month, his security clearance was reduced to the level of secret.
