"This is a portrait of a so-called Christian whose only objective in life is to lie for the wicked", writes Carrey in the accompanying caption without mentioning Huckabee Sanders by name.

"This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only objective in life is to lie for the wicked", he wrote on Twitter.

Jim Carrey's burgeoning career as an artist is proving that when it comes to inspiration, there's no place like home - or in his case, the White House.

A Carrey spokesperson confirmed to Mashable that the "sketch" was Carrey's handiwork, but could not confirm that the person portrayed was Sanders. It's been a primary part of Carrey's social media presence for some time-that is, he regularly tweets new colorful, marker-made drawings, usually ghoulish renderings of modern political figures, with a quippy associated caption. "Monstrous!" Carrey didn't name names - but Twitter got the idea all the same.

To say Jose Mourinho wasn't happy with the performance, however, would be putting things mildly. But every player can play bad. "I have nothing to lose in relation to that".

The tweet quickly went viral as Twitter users began to speculate whether the portrait was indeed of Sanders, criticizing Carrey for "mocking" Christianity.

Since the one-year mark under President Trump, Carrey has created satirical cartoons of both the Trump administration and the Republican congressmen and then has tweeted them out to his followers. Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas and the secretary's father, was among those who raged against the actor on Twitter: "Pathetic BULLY, sexist, hater, bigot & "Christaphobe". what would be hypocritical Hollywood reaction if he called someone a "so-called Muslim" or 'so-called Jew?'"

Carrey, who began painting six years ago to "heal a broken heart" following his split from Jenny McCarthy, primarily paints in his studio in downtown Manhattan.
