Actor and wannabe political cartoonist Jim Carrey joined in on the controversy surrounding the accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by creating a crude drawing depicting the alleged assault.
The accusations being levied against Kavanaugh are made by a professor at Palo Alto University, Christine Blasey Ford, who claims she was assaulted by Kavanaugh sometime in the early 1980s, according to CNN‘s timeline of events.
The decades-old alleged assault is conveniently coming to light shortly after Kavanaugh’s hearing in which the Democrats couldn’t find anything significant to warrant opposition to his confirmation.
Kavanaugh sharply denied the allegations.
“I have never done anything like what the accuser describes — to her or to anyone,” Kavanaugh said. “Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday.”
Carrey, apparently approaching the allegations without a shred of skepticism, decided to practice his drawing skills by illustrating sexual assault.
The art, which Carrey posted on Twitter, features a young, shirtless Kavanaugh with a woman’s hands on his chest, and a blond-haired man at the door with a beer.
Carrey’s crude illustration includes the caption “Republicans always look out for each other.”

Carrey couldn’t even get the allegations straight in his crude drawing.
The accuser implied there was no nudity, whereas Carrey’s poor illustration clearly implies otherwise.
According to the woman’s claims, Kavanaugh “groped her over her clothes.”
Perhaps we shouldn’t blame Carrey for getting the facts mixed up when the accuser seems to struggle with keeping her own story together.
For example, the accuser doesn’t even know exactly when this alleged assault happened. Her best estimate is 1982, but she won’t say for sure when it happened.
Another significant discrepancy is how she described the event to her therapist compared to her public accusations.
“The notes say four boys were involved, a discrepancy that Ford says was an error on the therapist’s part. Ford said there were four boys at the party but only two in the room,” according to National Review.
I’d be interested to hear Carrey’s process for deciding which version of the story to illustrate. He probably just went with the story that had fewer people to draw.
Only someone fully indoctrinated to the left-wing dogma like Carrey could unquestioningly believe unproven accusations against his political opponents.
