With the left in a lather following last week’s shooting at a Florida high school that left 17 people dead, we see more erratic behavior from “funny guy” Jim Carrey.
Quick to politicize the tragedy, Democrats and their media allies have launched a full-on push for gun control while attacking President Trump at every opportunity.
And that’s where Carrey enters the picture.
The eccentric actor shared a drawing he created of Trump playing golf amid the dead bodies of presumably students killed last week at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
The artwork included the caption: “What’s wrong with these kids? Didn’t they hear me yell, FORE!”
“It’s President’s Day and Chief Little Hands has been busy tweeting from his golf resort, a chip shot away from the latest bloody school shooting. He was hoping to play a few holes while grieving families are busy digging them,” Carrey tweeted.

What’s more, Carrey tagged Cameron Kasky, a student at Stoneman Douglas High School.
The student tweeted his appreciation: “Thank you. I promise we will bring eternal sunshine to the minds of millions sending their kids to school in the morning.”

Kasky’s Twitter feed is replete with gun control messages and his profile states that he is the founder of
#NEVERAGAIN and @MarchForOurLives movement.
“Angry, scared, confused, grieving, and sick of the NRA fostering and promoting this gun culture,” the profile reads.
With so much attention on mental illness in the wake of so many mass shootings, it would seem logical that Carrey might get behind the issue, but that’s not likely.
The liberal comedian has withdrawn from the spotlight in recent years to focus on painting, according to Business Insider, and is reportedly boycotting Facebook and dumping his stock because he believes the social network profited from Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Not surprising, Carrey’s mental health was a common topic among social media users.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
