Sen. Lindsey Graham has joined the list of politicians who have been caricatured by Jim Carrey.
Carrey, whose Twitter feed these days is dominated by his artistic representations of current events, shared an unflattering illustration of Graham over the weekend, along with his commentary on the South Carolina senator's angry remarks during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.
"Ever wonder why women don’t report sexual abuse?" Carrey captioned his tweet. "Look no further than the hideous and hateful face of Lindsey Graham who offered nothing but anger and absolute disdain to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford following her courageous, and very credible, testimony. Talk about 'a disgrace.'"
Carrey's tweet refers to Graham's behavior during last Thursday's testimony, when he excoriated Democrats on the Senate Judiciary committee and called the sexual-assault allegations against Kavanaugh a "sham." In separate comments to reporters, he claimed that Blasey Ford "is just as much a victim of this as I think Brett Kavanaugh is."
Elsewhere on Carrey's feed, he recently sketched his take on Kavanaugh in a darkened room, with another man holding a beer keeping watch. In another drawing, of a figure of a judge in a ski mask, he railed against Kavanaugh's nomination and defended victims of sexual assault on college campuses.
"Colleges care more about donors than the victims of on-campus rape," he wrote. "That's why women don't report it and why ENTITLED LITTLE (expletives) like Injustice Kavanaugh get to party and pillage their way to the Supreme Court. I'd like to suggest a new uniform for the highest court in the land."
In August, Carrey told reporters from the Television Critics Association that "it's not a choice" for him to be drawing his cartoons, but rather him doing his duty.
"I'm doing (them) because I can't just watch this nightmare unfold," he said. "I have to alchemize it into something creative and decent, even if it's crass at times. I'm expressing the crass everyone else wants to express and can't necessarily do so. When I stick a flag in Trump's (behind), it's because that's what everybody is seeing. They're seeing him owned."
