Jim Carrey Tells 'Snowflakes' To Form A 'Blizzard' To Get Trump Out Of Office In Scathing Essay

Jim Carrey has been a vocal critic of Donald Trump since the President took office, often sharing unflattering portraits of prominent Trump administration officials online.

But with the November elections drawing ever closer, Carrey felt he should also try a more direct approach. In a new essay for The Atlantic, the comic actor says he "knows funny, and the state of the country today is no laughing matter."

Carrey was scathing in his attacks on President Trump.

"The United States faces catastrophe. That's a word from my world—drama. In ancient Greek, katastrophḗ means 'overturn,' or 'a sudden turn.'"
"This is what we have suffered. Untold American lives have been ruined by the presidency of Donald Trump. The rule of law is imperiled, our unity has been shattered, the service sector has been obliterated, and major cities are suffering."
"Black Americans, who have endured half a millennium of wickedness and brutality, now face more injustice and death."



The actor leaves readers with a plea to vote against Trump this November.

"When I was a little boy in Canada, I watched old Superman reruns, and fell in love with the United States. I was blessed to be able to come here, and to realize my wildest dreams. In 2004, I proudly became a citizen. But lately, my adopted home has become almost unrecognizable."
"Whatever happened to 'Truth, Justice, and the American Way?' That line was written when the Nazis were ravaging Europe and America was the hero of the world. It's more than a line in a TV show; it's a set of ideals we should always aspire to uphold."
"In November, we must vote in historic numbers, gathering all the "snowflakes" until there's a blizzard on Capitol Hill that no corrupt politician can survive. We must vote for decency, humanity, and a way of life that once again captures the imagination of kids all over the world—kids like me."


Carrey was not the lone Canada-native hoping for a better America.



Many were impressed with the famously goofy actor's eloquence.



If there's one thing everyone agrees on, it's that our nation is at a tipping point.


This November, Americans will get the chance to show whether they've taken Carrey's advice to heart by either keeping Donald Trump in office or voting him out.
