Split: Fans either loved or hated Kirstie’s message

Her fans were split, with some loudly complimentary, while others shared their disbelief. 

The Tonight Show’s John Melendez replied: Are you out of your mind? What press conferences are you watching? I watch the ones with lies, misinformation, & jabs at Mitt Romney, & others.’ 

Kirstie retweeted his message with the words ‘BlAh blAh blAh,’ to which Melendez, who was known as ‘stuttering John’ on the late night show, answered: ‘Kirstie, I’m a fan, but you’re way off on this.’ 

She then tweeted an explanation: ‘I compliment people when they do well … blah blah blah.’ 

‘BlAh blAh blAH!’ Kirstie retweeted one of the negative comments she received

‘You can tell a lot about people who belittle you for your views and beliefs, when u aren’t even TALKING TO THEM!’ wrote Kirstie

As yet more responses rolled in, both supportive and astonished, Kirstie returned to Twitter.

‘You can tell a lot about people who belittle you for your views and beliefs, when u aren’t even TALKING TO THEM!

My bestie and I call these people CHIMERS ..they ALWAYS chime in when u are speaking to someone else.’

The Cheers actress suggested she would discuss the subject more on her podcast, writing: ‘Gotta speed up my podcast .. I got some stuff to talk about..:)’  

Controversial: Fans flooded to share their views on Kirstie’s remarks

Kirstie has long been a Trump supporter, even endorsing him in 2015 during his presidential run. 

She tweeted her support after the then-candidate was aggressively questioned by Scott Pelley during a 60 Minutes interview about his presidential run.

‘Pelley acting like an antagonist asshat,’ she tweeted. ‘I like Trump..fire at will.’ 

She then defended her position with a series of follow-up tweets.

However the following year she walked back her endorsement after the controversial ‘p***ygate’ tape emerged.
