Kirstie Alley Endorses Donald Trump
Alley tweeted on Friday night, “HELLO BOYS! this is my formal endorsement of @realDonaldTrump & I’m a woman! (last I checked) And Rudy [Giuliani], U R amazing!” Minutes later, the actress added, “If Ur ‘disappointed in me’ Or can’t hang w me because of my views..so be it..U were never a friend in the 1st place. I respect ALL my friends.”
Alley went on to quote the account @Bikers4Trump, which noted Kid Rock’s support of Trump. She wrote in response, “Add me to your list boys! … I endorse @realDonaldTrump love @RealRudyGiulian and damn!! Bikes rev up my soul! Xoxo.” Then, for the next several hours and into Saturday morning, Alley went back and forth with a number of followers who criticized her decision.
One person wrote, “Remarkable unity of morons behind Trump. Impressive.” Alley shot back, “Wish I could be a Rhodes scholar like yourself..well, maybe next election.” Likely referring to Scott Baio, another said, “What is it with ancient sitcom stars and Trump?” Alley retorted, “I don’t know..what’s with an asshat who calls himself a Christian slinging insults? Go figure.”
As Alley is a Scientologist, someone else wondered, “What’s the CoS’s position on the election?” She answered, “Probably the same as every other church on the planet….vote for whoever the hell you want to.” And with her mentions now on fire, the star exclaimed, “Waaaahoooo!! Now it’s gettin all wild around here!! Carry on then crawl back to your mom’s basement..ur dinners ready!!!!”
Alley received messages of support, too, leading her to tell one person, “I look at it this way..50% of America will probably disagree with me..but WOW! So lucky to be able to disagree.” On Saturday morning, the former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant noted, “Go figure..In the last 12 hours I’ve gotten THOUSANDS of Hate tweets from team ‘Liberal peace & love’ … ironic.”
She went on to say, “I have a damn good voting record of choosing presidents elected…Carter, Reagan, G.W. Bush,Clinton, Obama.. Happy with 3 of my choices :).” For his part, Trump acknowledged Alley’s endorsement by quoting her initial tweet on his own feed. In addition to Kid Rock and Baio, other celebrities supporting Trump include Aaron Carter, Jesse James, Omarosa, Jon Voight, Hulk Hogan, Mike Tyson, Stephen Baldwin, and Dennis Rodman.
