Ted CruzRafael (Ted) Edward Cruz Hickenlooper, Bennet bring deep ties to 2020 debate stage 2020 Democrat Bennet releases comprehensive government reform plan GOP frets about Trump's poll numbers MORE (R-Texas) on Tuesday, posting one of his trademark political paintings on Twitter that closely resembles Cruz with the words “Some Greasy Joe McCarthy Wanna-Be” at the top.

The painting is a continuation of the two men’s contentious Twitter exchange, with Cruz just a day before ripping Carrey’s previous painting depicting Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) as a fetus he suggests should have been aborted after she signed into law a near-total abortion ban in the state.

In his post criticizing Carrey, Cruz wrote “instead of insults & dehumanizing rage, we should return to civility,” a line Carrey took a shot at in his painting of Cruz.

Carrey also wrote, “I thought I must be dreaming, but I haven't woken up yet. I guess this hypocrisy is the new American Dream.”

Carrey late last year described himself as an “activist” through his Twitter account and has frequently gotten involved in politics, consistently criticizing President TrumpDonald John TrumpNew EPA rule would expand Trump officials' powers to reject FOIA requests Democratic senator introduces bill to ban gun silencers Democrats: Ex-Commerce aide said Ross asked him to examine adding census citizenship question MORE and Republican lawmakers who support him.

Virtually all of his posts and commentary on politics come in the form of paintings he creates, many including captions on Twitter.
