“Cheers” actress Kirstie Alley caused a firestorm on Twitter after endorsing President Trump’s re-election.
Many Democrats as well as fellow actors were infuriated.
Alley wrote “I’m voting for @realDonaldTrump because he’s NOT a politician. 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,” she added.
Patricia Arquette replied “Well my vote for Biden canceled yours out. I have done my civic duty of the day.”
Singer Alison Moyet replied “Is this a quote from a new comedy? Who are you reading for? Is the money good?”

Drag Queen Bianca Del Rio tweeted “Maybe he can MAKE YOUR CAREER GREAT AGAIN!”
Former Clinton staffer Joe Lockhart fired back “I’m voting for Biden because i have a brain.”
On October 9th, Lockhart tweeted “FACT — if Steve Scully says he didn’t send it you can take it to the bank. Period. Anyone who questions him or makes accusations is a damn liar.” Scully later admitted he did send the tweet and lied.
Not all the feedback was negative, some Trump supporters thanked and appreciated Alley.
Your bravery is appreciated ❤️🇺🇸
