Comedian and actor Jim Carrey happily admitted that he dreamed about attacking Donald Trump with a golf club, in an interview where he also defended Kathy Griffin’s photo in which she brandished the president’s severed head.
Carrey defended Griffin’s move by calling comedians the “last voice of truth” in American politics.
“I think it is the job of a comedian to cross the line at all times — because that line is not real,” he said. “If you step out into that spotlight and you’re doing the crazy things that [Trump is] doing,” Carrey continued, “We’re the last line of defense. And really, the comedians are the last voice of truth in this whole thing. It’s impossible to get away from it.”
The Daily Caller reports:
The most shocking part of the interview wasn’t Carrey’s cavalier attitude toward the Griffin photo, but rather a dream he relayed where he suggested he wanted to beat Trump with a golf club.
“I had a dream the other night I was playing golf with Donald Trump,” he recalled. “I was standing beside him with a club in my hand, and I was considering my options when I suddenly woke up.”
“It was one of those dreams where you just want to get back to sleep so you can finish it, you know?” he said.
Who knows what Carrey’s intention of sharing the dream was, but the obvious implication is that he wanted to harm Trump with the golf club, which is rather disturbing.
