“Fox & Friends” offered some outrage on Monday, blasting Jim Carrey for an unflattering portrait the actor painted of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.
“There is a double standard,” said co-host Ainsley Earhardt during an interview with Turning Point USA Director of Urban Engagement Candace Owens. “Don’t Democrats, don’t they preach and march and protest and have women’s marches and they say ‘tolerance, tolerance, tolerance?’ Where’s the tolerance here?”
Needless to say, Owens didn’t offer much in the way of pushback.
“Fortunately, conservatives, they just don’t view themselves as victims, so I just don’t think Sarah Sanders is going to respond to this,” said Owens.
Over the weekend, Carrey tweeted out the ghoulish rendering of Sanders.
“This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!” he wrote in a caption accompanying the image.

“Her dad was a minister before he became governor and Jim Carrey is attacking her faith too. He says this is a portrait of a so-called Christian,”Earhardt tsked tsked to Owens.
The “Fox & Friends” host, who often plays the role of aggrieved Christian on the show, also helped lead the outrage after “The View” co-host Joy Behar likened Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith to mental illness.
“When I heard that ABC had a program that likened my Christianity to mental illness, I just couldn’t be silent. My Christian faith is probably the most important thing in my life,” Pence told her during an interview at the Texas-Mexico border last month. “To have ABC have a forum that spoke in such demeaning terms, I think it’s evidence of how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people.”
