Actress Kirstie Alley spoke out on Twitter, revealing why she’s voting for Donald Trump in the upcoming election which prompted swift backlash.
Cheers actor Kirstie Alley has caused a massive Twitter storm after she took to social media, revealing she’s voting for Donald Trump “because he’s not a politician”. The 69-year-old, who rose to fame in the 80s, has been a longtime supporter of the republican candidate, but sparked a wave of backlash with her October 17 tweet. “I’m voting for @realDonaldTrump because he’s NOT a politician. I voted for him four years ago for this reason and shall vote for him again for this reason,” she wrote.
Kirstie then added, “He gets things done quickly and he will turn the economy around quickly. There you have it, folks, there you have it.” Her name soon began trending worldwide and Twitter users were quick to point out the flaws in her argument. “But he hasn’t gotten anything done,” one person wrote, adding, “I voted for him four years ago too and realised my mistake and voted for Joe Biden. We can dialogue respectfully if you like and I won’t force your vote but just hope you think about it.”
