Actor Jim Carrey often goes on strange rants with his political paintings and his newest one is the most deranged one yet.
“10,000 gun deaths in 2019 and the year is far from over. What Osama bin Laden did to us was terrible but he doesn’t hold a candle to Mitch McConnell,” he tweeted, along with a picture of a candle burning next to a $100 bill being dipped in what’s presumably blood.

People were quick to point out that the majority of gun deaths in America were by suicide.
In 2016, of the 28,658 deaths by gun a whopping 22.938 were suicides. Of the remaining 14,415 homicides only 71 of those victims were murdered in mass shootings which is what all of this is about. https://t.co/PPy3T4nTrK

And that McConnell didn’t order deaths like Osama Bin Laden did.
I didn't know that Mitch ordered the deaths of thousands of people like Bin Laden… https://t.co/I4gFx8s6Q2
