Jim Carrey's disgust with President Donald Trump's administration has yielded some scathing artwork in the past, and it doesn't look like he intends to let up.

His latest work invokes William Golding's novel Lord of the Flies for his latest critique of the Trump administration.

The painting is captioned "How Much Poison Are You Willing to Swallow?!" and shows Trump wearing a "Make Me God" hat and clutching a microphone. In front of him are stalwart Trump allies Senator Lindsey Graham (R-) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) pouring Kool-Aid down the throats of his supporters—reminiscent of the mass suicide of Jim Jones followers in Jonestown. His backdrop is the American and Russian flags separated by a gold "T."

He also christens Donald Trump with an all-too-fitting nickname: the new king of lies.

Fans felt the work was an accurate depiction.

Carrey is no stranger to political commentary. He's painted several other cutting odes to Donald Trump, and hasn't been particularly kind to Attorney General William Barr, either, calling him "Most crooked AG ever – Barr none!"

"I'm a creative," Carrey said in December. "And I can't not paint and I can't not create. It has to go some someplace, and I can't sit behind a desk, and I can't glad-hand people all the time, and I can't be dishonest."

His supporters are here for it.

No matter what the reaction, Carrey's art is here to stay. "It’s just exploding," he said. "I don't know where it’s going. You don't know which tributaries are actually going to cut a groove, you know, [but] you do it."

Due to a dire shortage of lifesaving medical equipment, governors across the country are imploring the federal government to invoke its powers to compel private companies to manufacture more equipment and oversee distribution of what's already available.

The saying "While the cat's away the mice will play" refers to people taking advantage of the absence of oversight to do as they like. While that is an apt description for what is happening now with the Trump administration using the public's focus on the global pandemic to roll back environmental protections, perhaps a better saying is "The inmates are running the asylum."

In other words, those least capable of running a group or organization are now in charge.

In the face of the public health crisis that's upended daily life in the United States, the historical impeachment trial of President Donald Trump—which ended on February 5—feels like a lifetime ago, despite captivating. a nation as late as last month.

As the national health crisis in the United States continues to worsen, New York has quickly become the epicenter of the pandemic in the United States.

New York City alone has over 20,000 confirmed cases of the virus, and the state's death toll skyrocketed by 110% in just 36 hours this week. The urgency is only exacerbated by a shortage of crucial ventilators to combat the respiratory virus.
