Jim Carrey’s ready for the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump.Sharing another one of his political satires on Twitter, the “Kidding” actor turned to the “Die Hard” franchise for inspiration, depicting a Hans Gruber-esque Trump, holding a gun, falling into a blue abyss — an image taken straight out of the 1998 film. Carrey also accompanied his illustration with Bruce Willis’s catchphrase from the series, writing “Yippie-ki-yay MF!” in the post.Yippie-ki-yay MF! pic.twitter.com/RsGDodXGu3— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) September 26, 2019The illustration comes two days after Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House of Representatives would begin a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump. The announcement coincided with mounting concern from lawmakers over a whistleblower complaint against the president that claimed he sought to use foreign power from Ukraine for his own political gain during a phone call. A memo based on the call in question, released by the White House, shows that Trump asked the Ukraine president to “do us a favor” and investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son.Trump has been a common subject in Carrey’s oeuvre; earlier this month, the comedian has depicted the president as Ronald McDonald and satirized Trump’s affinity for Sharpies, hyperbole, and his 2016 defense of the size of his penis after Trump displayed a doctored hurricane map that he had Sharpied over to make it appear as if Hurricane Dorian would be affecting parts of Alabama, when in fact it would not.Take a look at 41 other examples of Carrey’s political artwork here.Read original story Jim Carrey Compares Trump to Hans Gruber in ‘Die Hard’-Inspired Artwork At TheWrap

Messing called for a list of all attendees to be published, saying that “the public has a right to know.”McCormack followed that up with a similar call “so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with.”Representatives for Messing and McCormack did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Read original story ‘Seinfeld’ Actor Says He’s ‘Embarrassed’ for Anti-Trump Debra Messing, Eric McCormack At TheWrap
Randy Rainbow, the Emmy-nominated comedian best known for his satirical songs about Donald Trump, released his latest music video on Thursday — this time, to the tune of “Superstar,” from the musical “Jesus Christ Superstar.”Stylized as an interview between Rainbow and Trump, the comedian used clips of the president’s 2018 interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace before leaning heavily into messianic imagery. Rainbow goes on to sing about several of Trump’s recent questionable statements, including his declaration that he’s the “King of Israel” and the “chosen one.”When he gets to the song’s chorus, Rainbow turns the original lyrics of “Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ / Who are you, what have you sacrificed?” into “Cheeto Christ, Cheeto Christ / He’s like if Jesus were pumpkin spiced.”Also Read: Comedian Randy Rainbow Says His Satirical Trump Songs Are 'Healing' (Video)In an interview with TheWrap’s Lindsey Ellefson last week, Rainbow said he hoped that new viewers would be able to benefit from the humor of his videos.“I hope they’ll go and maybe binge me a little bit and see what I’m trying to do, which is kind of be as much of a spoonful of sugar as I can in these troubling times, use comedy as my weapon of choice, and get people to laugh instead of cry and sing instead of scream.”Watch the video above.Read original story Comedian Randy Rainbow Releases Latest Trump Satire Music Video: ‘Cheeto Christ Stupid Czar’ (Video) At TheWrap
