Actor and comedian Jim Carrey lost at least half of his fan base on Thursday when he issued a tweet that mocked President Trump and his supporters. It also raised questions about the man’s own morals in light of the fact that he is going through a legal skirmish regarding the 2015 drug overdose-related death of his ex-girlfriend, Los Angeles makeup artist Cathriona White.
In advance of President Trump’s scheduled rally Thursday night in West Virginia, the “Dumb and Dumber” star said the president will take the stage and “eat a baby” to please his “zombie base.”
“Tonight in West Virginia @realDonaldTrump is expected to EAT A BABY on stage to the delight of his zombie base,” Carrey tweeted, adding the social media hashtag #walkingdead.

The actor’s tweet included artwork, depicting a caricature of the president with fangs and blood all over his mouth.
You may recall how Carrey defended fellow comedian Kathy Griffin’s desperate attempt to make people laugh over her own sick image of herself holding a bloodied, decapitated prosthetic head meant to look like President Trump. Carrey advised her to double down on that.
“I think what happens is, when these extraordinary times, politically, happen, and we’re going through terror and the fear of the end, comics are the last line of defense,” Carrey told an audience at the premiere of his Showtime series, “I’m Dying Up Here.” “We tell them the truth, and we make something beautiful out of it.”
“I had a dream the other night I was playing golf with Donald Trump,” Carrey recalled. “I was standing beside him with a club in my hand, and I was considering my options when I suddenly woke up. It was one of those dreams where you just want to get back to sleep so you can finish it, you know?”
According to Carrey, who explained his comments in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, “It is the job of a comedian to cross the line at all times, because that line is not real.” Carrey believes comedians are “the last line of defense” and “the last voice of truth in this whole thing.”
Carrey’s claim of Trump “eating a baby” sparked outrage among his former fans who immediately connected the comedian to rumors that the Hollywood elite and former Washington bigwigs, including Hillary Clinton and her former campaign manager John Podesta, may actually be involved in that type of ritualistic killing.
Did you ask John Podesta what he does to children? You are no longer funny Jim. You have lost it along with millions of ex fans.

A known pro-abortion activist, Carrey also inspired Trump supporters to reference Planned Parenthood in their replies, which was a scathing indictment against that which the comedian was jokingly accusing President Trump of doing.
Dweeb must be talking about the democrats. They kill unborn babies then they sell the body parts. Get it right.

People also made comments about the fact that White’s parents charged in their wrongful death lawsuit that Carrey supplied his then-girlfriend with the prescription pills she used in her overdose. The actor has vigorously denied the claim; this week, he reportedly asked Los Angeles Police Department investigators to turn over evidence taken at the scene of her death, arguing that it is essential for his defense.
Included in the suit against Carrey is the fact that he tested positive for multiple sexually transmitted diseases. This fact was brought up in Twitter replies to his cartoon, as well.
Looks like you Jim…with STD's around the oral cavity!?!?
