Hollywood A-lister Kirstie Alley, a self-described Democrat, took to Twitter to announce she’s not voting this time around for the “party that starts with the letters D–E–M.”
The actress, best known for her portrayal of Rebecca Howe from 1987 to 1993 on the TV sitcom “Cheers,” for which she was honored with an Emmy and a Golden Globe, didn’t explain exactly why, but she has suggested in the past the media seems unfairly in the tank for the Democrats.
Her tweets started with this one, the Blaze reported: “I know who I’m voting for … and I know who I want them to choose for Vice President … Got this all planned out. Sooooooo.”

A couple minutes later, she wrote: “Here’s a hint…I won’t be voting the party that starts with the letters D E M this time…I know it’s not much of a hint.”
She never explicitly stated she was voting for a Republican candidate – but there aren’t any other contenders for president yet running outside of the main Democratic and GOP parties. Billionaire businessman Donald Trump has suggested on several occasions he would consider making a run for the high office as an Independent, if need be. But so far, he’s running strong at the top of the Republican Party’s polls.
Alley, in a 2012 tweet about Clint Eastwood’s speech from the Republican National Convention, indicated she normally sides with the left at the voting polls.
“I just saw Clint Eastwood’s speech and I LOVED it!! Funny as hell & on point!!..& I’m a Democrat,” she wrote then, the Blaze found. “US media is SO biased in favor of Dems.”
