A few celebrities even chimed in and responded directly to her tweet.

The "Cheers" star tweeted Saturday that she is voting for Trump to be reelected because he's "not a politician".

"It's amusing because I have been talking about Trump now for several months, and the other night I put out a tweet that simply said that I voted for him the first time [in 2016] and [will vote for him] this time because he's not a politician", Alley said. He gets things done quickly and he will turn the economy around quickly.

Film director Judd Apatow also posted a retort, claiming that Alley's "Cheers" predecessor Shelley Long was "funnier than you". I don't watch the news! "And sexuality is a preference!'" reacted Insecure actress Natasha Rothwell.

Regarding Democratic nominee Joe Biden, Alley hit out against his statements on race, noting, "What did he say, 'you ain't black if you're not voting for me?' and then these constant gaffes of these actual racist overtones, and I'm like 'no, maybe you get one where you accidently said something inappropriate, but it's pretty constant". "I give you a lot of credit", Hannity told Alley, before listing off messages where people told her she "should rot in hell", and that she doesn't "have a brain". "Definitely not on my site [sic] 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". "I've been lucky I guess".

Kirstie Alley has once again shared her support of President Donald Trump on social media, and this time she's sparked a trending topic on Twitter. Not always easy to be under fire but always easier than going against your own integrity. She then urged people to "stick to [their] guns", writing, "Not always easy to be under fire but always easier than going against your own integrity". "& JUST REMEMBER: if it takes thousands to try & bring u down, you must be one powerful Mfer Love wins". However, according to the modern court of public opinion, that's no longer acceptable.
