Jim Carey used to be funny. He was one of my favorite actors, for sure. Even as he came out as a liberal (like most of Hollywood), I put that aside because the man made me laugh.
Unfortunately, that’s no longer the case. Carey has morphed into this very weird, very creepy version of himself that is so bad that I get second-hand embarrassment just looking at his goofy face. That’s not even to mention the amount of moronic political nonsense that spews from his once-funny mouth.
Now he thinks he’s an expert on the NFL…
OK, we can’t start every piece about Jim Carrey by saying, “Man, this dude get weird,” so we’ll jump right into it.
The former funnyman hopped onto Twitter on Tuesday in one of his moods and took aim at President Trump over the National Football League’s decision to ban players from protesting during the national anthem.
Along with another of his infantile paintings, Carrey posted: “NFL — who exploits players for 3yrs (sic) then abandons them to a lifetime of pain — sided with a draft-dodging racist who uses fake patriotism to squash peaceful protest. Corporations shld (sic) rethink sponsoring moral cowardice before we start asking: whose side is Nationwide really on?”

Trump said last week on Fox News that he didn’t think the NFL — which announced that teams can hold their players in the locker room during the national anthem — went far enough.
“I don’t think people should be staying in the locker rooms, but still I think it’s good. You have to stand proudly for the national anthem. You shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there. Maybe they shouldn’t be in the country,” Trump said.
Carrey, once box-office gold, has been crumbling for quite a while (perhaps the time period corresponds perfectly with his weighing in on all kinds of political matters). His new movie, “Dark Crimes,” got a 0% rating from Rotten Tomatoes.
