Jim Carrey stood up for fellow comedian Kathy Griffin and her attempt at a visual “joke” about a beheaded Donald Trump, saying that it’s their “job to cross the line at all times.”Griffin was hit with an onslaught of criticism and was cut from her long-running annual New Year’s Eve co-hosting gig on CNN after she posted a photo earlier this week on Twitter in which she held up a prop that depicted the president’s severed head.“I think it is the job of a comedian to cross the line at all times — because that line is not real,” Carrey said in an “Entertainment Tonight” interview Wednesday at the Los Angeles premiere of his new Showtime series, “I’m Dying Up Here.”“If you step out into that spotlight and you’re doing the crazy things that [Trump] is doing, we’re the last line of defense. And, really, the comedians are the last voice of truth in this whole thing.”Carrey then skirted his own line and recounted a dream about playing golf with Trump and standing next to him with a golf club in his hand.
