While many might still salivate over the thought of green eggs and ham, some won’t take too well with this spoof character straight out of a Dr Seuss story.
Following his artworks of a baby-devouring Trump and a more brutal “fix” to TIME magazine’s viral cover, actor and activist Jim Carrey has illustrated the President in another form, this time one of a potential children’s story book character named ‘Trumpy McMonkey McBean’.
The image depicts ‘Trumpy McMonkey McBean’ as one of Seuss’s ‘Sneeches’, a species of long-necked yellow birds with a power hierarchy.
In the original tale, ‘Sneeches’ with stars marked on their bellies belong to the “in crowd,” whereas those with plain bellies are ostracized.
Carrey’s caricature shows a malevolent version of a good-natured ‘Sylvester McMonkey McBean’, who goes around selling stars to those who desire them.
This illustration, of course, imagines Trump as a star-bellied ‘Sneech’, while three clear-bellied characters in the background sadly stare ahead.
The actor attaches his cartoon with a fitting rhyme that reads, “Then, quickly ‘Trumpy McMonkey McBean’ put together a very peculiar machine. And he said, ‘You want stars like the fancy elite?’ My friends, you can have them—just drop at my feet!”
What’s worth noting is that Carrey played prominent roles in Dr Seuss films, the first being the main character in How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the other as the voice of ‘Horton the Elephant’ in Horton Hears A Who.
