The comedian is hoping the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery will consider using his new painting as Trump's official portrait.

Jim Carrey has debuted on social media his official portrait of Donald J. Trump, and it’s a scathing critique of the 45th President of the United States. The image shows Trump pleasuring himself as he touches his right nipple and eats ice cream. His bowl of ice cream resembles two breasts.

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

The Trump portrait is just the latest politically-charged painting Carrey has released this month. The comedian received backlash from Republicans in the middle of March when he unveiled his unflattering portrait of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Carrey has also painted Trump as the Wicked Witch of the West from “The Wizard of Oz.”

You can see Carrey’s official Trump portrait below. The comedian has been making headlines more for his paintings in recent months than his acting. Carrey was most recently seen on the big screen in “The Bad Batch” last summer and in the Netflix documentary “Jim and Andy,” which is now streaming. IndieWire has reached out to Carrey’s representatives for comment on the portrait.
