Kirstie Alley responded with words of encouragement after getting dragged on social media for declaring her continued support for President Trump in the upcoming election.
The “Cheers” actress took to Twitter on Saturday evening to explain to her followers why she voted for Trump in the 2016 election and plans to do so again on Nov. 3 in his reelection bid against Democratic challenger Joe Biden.
“I’m voting for @realDonaldTrump because he’s NOT a politician,” Alley, 69, began. “I voted for him 4 years ago for this reason and shall vote for him again for this reason. He gets things done quickly and he will turn the economy around quickly. There you have it folks there you have it.”
It didn’t take long before the “Look Who’s Talking” star was berated by her followers on the social media site for her continued support for Trump amid a slew of issues including his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, which she had previously publicly praised. Before long, Alley’s name was trending on Twitter.
The jab was a reference to the fact that Alley was brought on to “Cheers” in Season 6 to replace Long’s character after the latter decided to move on from the wildly popular sitcom.
“Don’t think I’ve ever seen so much name-calling in my life,” she wrote. “Definitely not on my site here anyway I guess I’m not allowed to have a viewpoint without being called a really nasty names by what I’m going to suppose are really nasty people.”
