Carrey posted the painting to Twitter on Thursday, depicting Trump eating an ice cream sundae in a bathrobe.

“Dear Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery,” Carrey wrote on Twitter. “I know it’s early but I’d like to submit this as the official portrait of our 45th President, Donald J. Trump. It’s called, ‘You Scream. I Scream. Will We Ever Stop Screaming?”

The comedian has created portraits of several other members of Trump’s administration.


He faced backlash for an unflattering portrait of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, where he called her "a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked.”
