Jim Carrey: 'No Trump' Can Take Innocence Away From Americans
Actor launches yet another attack on President
Following actor Jim Carry's recent attack on the President for “inciting civil unrest," the iconic comedian claims his upcoming show “Kidding” will remind Americans that nobody, including Trump, can "take away their innocence."
Carrey talked about his new Showtime series with Jimmy Kimme, explaining that the character he plays, Mr. Pickles, is similar to Mr. Rogers.
"The show is about a beautiful human being with a huge heart that everyone's trying to protect. And lightning hits his life. And everyone's afraid he's going to [fall apart]," Carrey said.
"Mr. Rogers would come out on a show like this and he would be so absolutely authentic that you can't find the irony," he said.
"We're really reminding people that we're all innocent.
"We still have it.
"We haven't lost it.
"No Trump can take it away from us.
"It will always be there.
"And it’s proven out when you see a person like Mr. Rogers and you go, ‘Wow I still have that in me, that total belief in goodness’ and that’s what it’s all about."
The Golden Globe award-winning star has been outspoken against Trump.
The comedian often draws vulgar paintings of Trump or other White House officials in order to criticize his administration.
He has repeatedly come under fire for his abstract artwork.

The actor also slammed Donald Trump’s immigration policy in a Twitter post describing the behavior as “worse than animals."
The rant has offended many trump supporters who effectively voted for Trump's policies.
One Twitter user said, "I support these policies, but I'm no animal."
“We sit by as children are slaughtered by the hundreds in their classrooms, taken from their refugee parents and locked in cages,” Carrey wrote on Twitter.
“We treat them like animals because we’re worse than animals: we’re Donald Trump’s Americans,” Carrey ranted.
“If this wickedness goes on our fate will be a cruel one.”
