Carrey¿s Twitter account features dozens of pieces of his artwork and are often topic such as this one of Stephen Hawking who died last week at the age of 76

The actor and comedian on Saturday tweeted the painting with the caption: "This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only goal in life is to lie for the wicked".

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

A Carrey spokesperson confirmed to Mashable that the "sketch" was Carrey's handiwork, but could not confirm that the person portrayed was Sanders. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Trump's chief of staff, John F. Kelly. "If you liked my last cartoon you may also enjoy..."

A painting by comedian Jim Carrey that was posted to Twitter in March 2018.

The White House and Sanders have not yet commented about the painting.

Russia said the vote repaired a historical wrong after the historically Russian region was handed over to Ukraine 60 years ago. Crimea and Sevastopol adopted declarations of independence on March 11, 2014.

In his new "The Wicked Witch of the West Wing and Putin's Flying Monkeys", Carrey amalgamates Trump (who he's referred to as "Chief Little Hands" in other works) and The Wizard of Oz's Wicked Witch of the West into a new, chilling figure.

He was one of the top actors of the 1990s, headlining hits like "Liar, Liar", "The Mask", "Dumb and Dumber", and much more.

Sanders" father, former Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee also fired back at Carrey, tweeting: "Pathetic BULLY, sexist, hater, bigot & "Christaphobe" @ attacks @ for her faith; what would be hypocritical Hollywood reaction if he called someone a "so-called Muslim" or "so-called Jew?'".

A spokeswoman for Carrey confirms it is his painting.
