Comedian and actor Jim Carrey painted a cruel portrait of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and attacked her religion on Twitter Saturday.
“This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked … Monstrous!” Carrey tweeted along with the crude depiction of Sanders:

Carrey has regularly drawn crude depictions of the Trump White House and tweeted attacks at the Trump administration.
The “Dumb & Dumber” actor faced heavy backlash for the depiction of Sanders and the tweet. Commenters savaged Carrey for the depiction and for attacking Christianity.
When you want to know what a desiccated soul looks like, or what happens to a Hollyweirdo’s brain when it’s addled by political derangement and misogyny, look at @JimCarrey.
What a piteous, pitiful pity. https://t.co/F0V1XkpbdR

However, the real shoe dropped when Sanders’ father, Mike Huckabee, stepped in. The former governor and presidential candidate has been an avid defender of his daughter and the administration. Huck called Carrey a “Pathetic BULLY, sexist, hater, bigot & “Christaphobe” before implying that he was hypocritical for singling out his daughter’s religion:
Pathetic BULLY, sexist, hater, bigot & “Christaphobe” @jimcarrey attacks @PressSec for her faith; what would be hypocritical Hollywood reaction if he called someone a “so-called Muslim” or “so-called Jew?” #classlessCarrey https://t.co/HCqHoER0Ru
