Actress Kirstie Alley Announces Support For Donald Trump, Experiences HUGE Left-Wing Backlash

( Actress and model Kirstie Alley, who is perhaps best known for her role in the classic sitcom “Cheers,” announced her support for President Donald Trump over the weekend and immediately faced a huge, angry backlash from left-wing Hollywood types.

In a Twitter post, Alley made it absolutely clear that she supports the president this time around, and even voted for him four years ago too.

“I’m voting for @realDonaldTrump because he’s NOT a politician,” she said. “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.”

Almost immediately after publishing the tweet, Alley was trending on Twitter and Hollywood blue-checkmark accounts began posting nasty things about her.

“Shelly Long was way funnier than you,” Judd Apatow said.

What does that have to do with President Trump’s ability as president, and Alley’s thoughtful explanation for her support for the Republican candidate?

Broadcaster Soledad O’Brien opted for the same kind of personal attack, failing to offer any kind of response to Alley’s polite explanation for her support of the policies of the president.

“Still a hot mess,” he said.

Real nice.

After facing such a huge backlash, Alley came back and said she has never seen so much name-calling in her life.

“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,” she said.

In another follow-up tweet, Alley told readers to “stick to your guns.”

“Not always easy to be under fire but always easier than going against your own integrity,” she said. “& JUST REMEMBER: if it takes thousands to try & bring u down, you must be one powerful MFer.”

Is it any wonder virtually the only vocally political Hollywood and TV stars are Democrats?
