Sen. Ted Cruz, R-T.X., is used to a verbal scuffle or two with liberal Hollywood celebrities.
After all, the longtime congressman and former presidential candidate once challenged “Hellboy” actor Ron Perlman to a wrestling match.

It was no surprise then, that his latest tie with Hollywood comedian Jim Carrey turned out badly for the liberal actor.
He is making fewer slapstick comedy movies these days. Instead, Carrey has spent his time creating crude paintings of prominent Republican and conservative figures. That backfired when he went after Cruz.
His latest painting quickly went viral Sunday night.
Carrey entitled the painting: “Ted Cruz, Hellbound Class of 2020.”
By Monday, Sen. Cruz officially responded. Cruz kept his cool in responding to the Hollywood jokester.
“Hey @JimCarrey can I get a copy of this for my office?”

This took the wind out of the sails of liberals. Carrey had no response/.
So far Carrey has disgraced Abraham Lincoln, offered far too many grotesque portraits of President Donald Trump, and even a depiction of the infamous Italian facist Benito Mussolini’s corpse (whose granddaughter condemned the illustration).

Dear Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery @NPG, 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?' pic.twitter.com/LrCmlXXpv7

On his political artwork Carrey said:
“To me, that was like a time, and it’s been a time, where I just wanted to be the lighthouse that was saying, ‘Hey, stay off the rocks, you’re headed for the rocks.'”

“We’re still headed for the rocks, but I’ve decided, ‘You understand my message, I don’t need to be steeped in it anymore.’ I think after a while … you get stuck in that kind of stuff.”
The actor has most recently play Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on “Saturday Night Live.”
