The legendary actress, Kirstie Alley, has found herself in hot water. How come? Because she revealed she would be voting for Donald Trump.
Numerous celebrities and average Joes alike, have turned on Kirstie claiming she's wrong for voting for the Republican candidate.
Kirstie Alley has found herself in social media trouble.
via: GettyWhy? Because she tweeted her support for non other than the current POTUS, Donald Trump.
Alley claimed she was voting for Trump because he's 'not a politician'.But things immediately backfired on the actress - resulting in her saying she had never seen so much name calling in all her life. Keep scrolling to check it out.
Now, we are mere weeks away from the highly anticipated presidential election...
via: GettyAnd it's been an explosive journey coming up to it, to say the least! But the most exciting thing - nobody really knows where the election is going to end.
Donald Trump is hoping to gain victory and be reelected as President of the United States...
via: GettyBut it seems that he has some serious competition from his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, although Trump probably wouldn't admit that himself.
Of course, the election couldn't have fallen on a worse year...
via: GettyBut it has been powering on ahead... despite many major setbacks.
The first presidential debate was held on September 29th at the Samson Pavilion of the Health Education Campus in Cleveland.
via: GettyEntering into the debate, Biden had a significant and persistent lead in the polls. Biden's lead was compounded by a cash crunch in Trump's campaign, with Biden's campaign donations improving significantly.
President Trump was obviously aware of this...
via: GettyAnd in the weeks running up the debate, he attempted to cast doubt over Biden's abilities, claiming that he was suffering from dementia and that he was taking performance-enhancing drugs. Trump even requested Biden to take a drug test before the debate!
But overall, the ninety-minute debate, that was held by Fox News' Chris Wallace, was a bitter one.
via: GettyBoth Trump and Biden seemed to be having a field day throwing insults at one another and calling each other out.
6 subjects were set by Wallace to be discussed that evening...
via: GettyThe Trump and Biden records, the Supreme Court, the COVID-19 pandemic, the economy, the issue of race and violence in cities, and the integrity of the election. But despite these firm rules, the pair just seemed to focus on personal insults... and even familial issues.
The whole debate was certainly made personal...And it didn't leave a pleasant taste in the mouths of viewers who were, quite frankly, left feeling disgusted at what they had just witnessed.
It all felt very disorganized...
This debate is unfortunately between a steamroller with no operator & a Roomba that got stuck in a corner— Aparna Nancherla (@Aparna Nancherla)1601428943.0
Trump's presidential campaign seems to be hitting rocks...And things took an ultimate turn for the worst when at the start of October, the President and the First Lady, Melania, tested positive for COVID-19. Trump insisted that they immediately went into self-isolation together and that they felt fine, but after just a few days, he was hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Centre.
Despite the huge worry surrounding Trump's health...
via: GettyHe was discharged just a few days later and insisted to the nation that all we need to do is to "learn to live with COVID", which was very concerning to hear.
Well, the first and only vice presidential debate of 2020 went ahead on October 7th between Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris.
via: GettyWashington Bureau Chief for USA Today, Ellen Page, moderated the heated debate in Utah and in similarity to the first Presidential Debate, sparks flew for miles.
Kamala Harris opened eyes with her firm techniques in handling interruptions by Pence...
via: GettyIncluding her putting her hand up and firmly saying, "Mr. Vice President, I'm speaking"... engulfing Pence into silence.
Similar topics were covered...
via: GettyIncluding the COVID-19 pandemic, Trump administration, racism and inequality, and the Supreme Court; all of which were discussed in a much calmer and well-rounded nature than the President and Biden.
According to the polls, Harris was the one who came out on top...

Following the VP debate, Trump continued to insist on how he was "feeling better than ever."
via: GettyBut when Joe Biden proposed making the next presidential debate a virtual one in the interest of health and safety, Trump put his foot down.
FYI, this wasn't just Biden's idea.
via: GettyThe Commission on Presidential Debates announced that the October 15th town hall-style debate in Miami would take place virtually as health experts raised concerns about whether it would be safe to hold the event in person given Trump is still recovering from COVID-19.
The virtual debate that was scheduled to go ahead on the 15th of October was officially canceled due to Trump's refusal.
via: GettyFor some reason, the proposition of a virtual debate infuriated the President and he boldly said he "wouldn't waste his time" on it.
So instead, Joe Biden participated in a Philadelphia town hall forum moderated by ABC's George Stephanopoulos...
via: GettyAnd in typical Trump fashion, the President announced at the last minute that he would hold his own town hall forum in Miami at exactly the same time, hosted by NBC.
Trump's event will be hosted by NBC's Savannah Guthrie...
via: GettyAnd this is the first time ever that 2 hopeful presidential candidates will go head-to-head at the same time while not being at the same event.
The 2 events created A LOT of headlines.
via: GettyBut a lot of people can't stop talking about Trump's comments a little later on in Georgia.
At his next rally in Macon, Georgia, Trump made some big claims.
via: GettyTrump was speaking about how Biden is 'the worst presidential candidate in history'. He said that losing to Biden would be massively embarrassing for him.
What he said next was unbelievable.
via: GettySpeaking at the rally, Trump said:
Can you imagine if I lose, my whole life, what am I going to do? I am going to say I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics?
"I am not going to feel so good."
via: GettyTrump then joked that he may have to leave the country, saying:
Maybe I will have to leave the country, I don’t know.As he made the comments, his followers cheered and laughed.
As we get closer and closer to election night, more and more celebrities are coming out and endorsing their candidates.

Shelly Long was way funnier than you.Actress Patricia Arquette tweeted:
Well my vote for Biden canceled yours out. I have done my civic duty of the day.And West Wing star Bradley Whitford added:
Exactly, @kirstiealley, @realDonaldTrump gets things done! Like the wall he built that Mexico paid for, the healthcare plan that he passed, the infrastructure plan, the way he neutralized the NK nuclear threat, and the way he released his taxes and kept us all safe! Great point!
And then Kirstie responded herself.
