It was just a harmless painting of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as a vampire evaporating in the sunlight.

On Sunday, Jim Carrey shared another one of his wacky political paintings, this time of incumbent Texas Senate candidate Cruz as an apparent vampire being roasted by sunlight and his opponent Beto O’Rourke. Carrey wrote: “Go Beto! Go Democrats! Vote like there’s no tomorrow. Let’s make this Tuesday like the end of every great vampire movie. Pull back the curtains and let the sunshine turn all those bloodsuckers to dust.”

Cruz responded to the tweet yesterday, calling out the “Hollywood liberals all in for Beto” and pointing out that the actor “made a mistake here: Vampires are dead, and everyone knows the dead vote Democrat…..”

While this isn’t the first time Cruz has been made into a vampire, Carrey followed up, elbowing Cruz for “sucking up to the guy who called your wife ugly and accused your dad of murder. But I get it! It’s hard to say no when Trump grabs ya by the pussy!” Carrey is referring to a 2016 Donald Trump tweet that disparaged wife Heidi Cruz’s looks and Trump’s baseless claim that same year that Cruz’s father was photographed with Lee Harvey Oswald before JFK’s assassination.

As of Tuesday morning, Cruz has not responded to being owned by a Hollywood liberal. Last week, he made a desperate attempt to appeal to the internet vote with a Zodiac Killer tweet, taking the air out of a years-old meme claiming Cruz is actually the infamous serial killer who was active in and around San Francisco in the ’60s and ’70s—and who was never caught.

Last week, Carrey posted a more chaotic painting, urging his followers: “Vote Democrat. Help save the future. DON’T FOLLOW THE RED HAT TO HELL!”
