Jim Carrey bids farewell to 'Worst First Lady’ Melania Trump Photograph:( Twitter )
The actor is known for using his Twitter account regularly over the last several years to post politically-charged cartoons and captions that often referenced the former Trump administration.
Jim Carrey is taking a pause from his political cartoon postings.
The actor and comedian recently announced that he is taking a pause from posting political cartoons by sharing a drawing of himself standing in a doorway with his arms outstretched and a caption that read "... in case I don`t see ya...," - reminiscent of a catchphrase from `The Truman Show`.
Carrey further tweeted a lengthy message explaining the decision."Hey folks...for the past 4yrs, among other commitments, I put considerable effort into this collection of political protest cartoons. It truly feels as though you and I have crossed an ocean of outrage together...but something tells me it`s time to rest my social media gavel and reclaim a little neurological bandwidth," he wrote.
Carrey continued, "If it seemed like I was ignoring my main Twitter followers here and outside the US and Canada in my quest to rid our democracy of `Orange Julius Caesar` and his Empire of Lies, it was not my intention. I just assumed that a radicalized America is a threat to us all. When a madman grabs the wheel of the bus loaded with innocent passengers and threatens to drive it off a cliff, it tends to steal everyone`s focus."

When Biden was elected President, Carrey posted a cartoon with a caption that read, "Joseph R. Biden, a real president working for the benefit of the entire nation and not just to enrich himself by manipulating angry gullible anarchists."In Carrey`s most recent message attached to his tweet, he signed off by thanking his fans. "You always have and always will occupy a sacred space in my grateful heart. Thank You All kindly for your patience, your support, your humor, and your b.e.a.utiful fanart.
