Actor and comedian Jim Carrey has spent a lot of his free time lately painting portraits that capture the absurdity of American politics, including portraits of Donald Trump, Kellyanne Conway, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders. In his final tribute to the most dishonest White House press secretary in history, the right-wing conservative Sanders is depicted praying at the feet of Jesus, telling just as many lies to him as she does to everyone else.
‘Good Riddance, Sarah Huckabee Sanders! Now the only one you have to lie to is Jesus.’

Apparently, no one ever taught Sanders that claiming to be a devout Christian while lying through her teeth is hypocritical, and Carrey captured that concept perfectly. With a red halo and her trademark string of pearls, Sanders is shown in the portrait doing what she’ll be most remembered for.
Trump announced on Thursday that Sanders would be leaving his administration but no mention of who might be taking her place has been forthcoming. Trump bragged on Fox & Friends that “many” people are begging to take her place, but considering the fates of Trump’s first press secretary, Sean Spicer, and his former communications director of nine days, Anthony Scaramucci, it’s likely that any candidate for the position knows that they’re only next move will be to Fox News. No one else will take them.
Rumors have circulated that Sanders intends to run for the governorship in Arkansas, a position her father, as well as former President Bill Clinton, once held. She has neither confirmed nor denied these rumors.
