Actor Jim Carrey sent out a photo Wednesday of a painting with a $100 bill being dipped in blood with a caption that said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is worse than Osama Bin Laden.
“10,000 gun deaths in 2019 and the year is far from over. What Osama bin Laden did to us was terrible but he doesn’t hold a candle to Mitch McConnell,” Carrey wrote on Twitter.

Carrey has come under fire for many of his paintings and tweets aimed at members of the Trump administration, such as a “monstrous” portrait of former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, he tweeted out in 2018. Carrey has also been vocal about gun reform, tweeting out a disturbing photo of a dead school girl laying in a pool of blood on top of the American flag.
McConnell said Tuesday that he would be willing to put a gun bill on the Senate floor, but only if President Donald Trump will sign it. This causing outrage from many on the left, who say gun reform legislation needs to happen now.
“If the President is in favor of a number of things that he has discussed openly and publicly, and I know that if we pass it, it will become law, I’ll put it on the floor,” McConnell said on a radio show.
