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.”

Alley, 69, went on to post that she believes that Trump will rapidly turn the American economy around if he returns to the White House.

“He gets things done quickly and he will return the economy around quickly. There you have it folks there you have it,” Alley continued.

She immediately received criticism for her statement, with some people commenting on all the things that Trump have quickly gotten done:

He did kill 224,284 Americans faster & >than any collection of prior wars *and* destroy the economy including billions of costs from failed trade wars *and* increase the deficit to 3.1 TRILLION dollars in debt (3x 2019) all faster than any other impeached president, that is true. pic.twitter.com/JE3xvoUcnl

“He gets things done quickly”

Killed 218,000 Americans in record time (6 months)

Destroyed the economy in that same amount of time

Destroyed 2 centuries of respect for America in just 3 years

People also commented on her reasoning for voting for Trump:

Story continues I am hiring my friend because he’s NOT an electrician! I hired him 4 years ago for this reason and he wired up the house quick! And now, 4 years later after it burned down (fake news said it was an electric fire) I am going to hire him again!

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 [email protected]Trump,” 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.”
