Kirstie Alley has been trending and it’s not because there’s a Look Who’s Talking reboot or a Cheers virtual table read. The actress made headlines this weekend for reaffirming her support for President Donald Trump.

The two-time Emmy winner took to her Twitter account on Saturday to post who she is endorsing in the forthcoming presidential election. Not only did she reveal that she is voting for Trump, but also stated why.

“I’m voting for @realDonaldTrump because he’s NOT a politician,” Alley tweeted. “I voted for him 4 years ago for this reason and shall vote for him again for this reason.”

The backlash was noticed by Alley who responded with more posts. “Don’t think I’ve ever seen so much name-calling in my life,” she tweeted. “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.”

Alley came under fire in April 2016 when she posted her original support for Trump during his first campaign, then against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “HELLO BOYS! this is my formal endorsement of@realDonaldTrump,” she posted, which was retweeted by Trump soon after.

After getting scathing replies back then as well, she quickly responded in similar fashion. “If Ur ‘disappointed in me’ Or can’t hang with my views..so be it..U were never a friend in the 1st place.”
