Kirstie Alley shares details of backlash for backing Trump with Tucker Carlson: Feels like ‘Twilight Zone’

Actress Kirstie Alley has been relentlessly beaten back for supporting former President Donald Trump and shared on Wednesday’s Tucker Carlson Today episode how extreme it was to be honest with her political opinions.

The star recalled working on a project four years ago when she first expressed interest in voting for Trump. Following her public statement, some producers announced they had similar intentions but remained silent for fear that they would “never work again” – and Alley said she knew they were right.

“People say, ‘You are so brave.’ I’m going, ‘No, I think I’m stupid,’ “she said. “Because it’s honestly a real situation. And it’s a real blackballing situation. And it’s so strange to me because artists are mostly free thinkers.”


Alley stated that she never considered herself a very political person, and referred to when she starred on the popular ‘Cheers’ sitcom from the’ 80s, how different political views were always welcome.

In her career, Alley pointed out how many of her co-stars would commit a variety of illegal or socially shameful acts, such as heavy drug use, without the same impact that many people have on supporting conservative thinking.

“You can cook meth and sleep with hookers, but as long as you don’t seem to have voted for Trump,” she said. “I feel a bit in the ‘Twilight Zone’ with the whole concept.”

“I’ve been followed by a lot of celebrities on Twitter, and now I’ve got three following,” she said. “I’m the same person. I’m the girl who voted for Obama twice. And I say, ‘Oh, so you liked me when I voted for Obama and now you are?’ And it made me rethink all my friendships, all my friendships, strangely enough. “

Alley’s full interview with Tucker Carlson will be available on Fox Nation Wednesday afternoon.
