‘Fear of dying is their mantra!’ Kirstie Alley absolutely shreds CNN’s COVID coverage
“Cheers” actress and Trump supporter Kirstie Alley slammed CNN after she tuned into their network to “get their viewpoint” about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. All she saw was constant fearmongering and Trump-hatred.
“I now Know why my personal friends who walk around in SHEER TERROR of contracting Covid are simply CNN viewers! I decided to watch CNN myself to get a their viewpoint and oh my God DID I EVER!!!! IF YOU TOO WANT TO LIVE IN TERROR WATCH CNN!! FEAR OF DYING IS THEIR MANTRA! OMG,” Alley tweeted.
Kirstie also supported President Trump when he returned to the White House from the Walter Reed Medical Center after contracting COVID-19. She lambasted CNN for criticizing Trump over his actions.

CNN’s Kaitlan Collins pounced on Trump, “Only days into his diagnosis, the first thing President Trump does when he gets back to the White House is take his mask off.”
Alley in turn ripped into Collins: “What would you like him to do? Start crying like a little b***h so you can report that he’s …crying like a little b***h? He could have a hazmat suit on and you would report … he’s a f***ing lunatic in a hazmat suit,” Alley said. “You hate him. Just report that,” Alley concluded.
Collins was accused of being a “Faker” by Trump in a previous incident where the reporter had been caught pulling off her mask when she thought cameras were off after she had criticized the administration for the same offense. She tweeted later that she had only taken off her mask for six seconds.
Alley is one of the few celebrities in Hollywood who has been solid in her support for President Trump and she has announced she is going to vote for him in the 2020 presidential election as opposed to his Democratic challenger Joe Biden. Kirstie also voted for Trump in 2016.
“I’m voting for @realDonaldTrump because he’s NOT a politician,” Alley wrote. “I voted for him 4 years ago for this reason and shall vote for him again for this reason. He gets things done quickly and he will turn the economy around quickly. There you have it folks there you have it.”
CNN has covered President Trump over the last four years with nothing but negative press and biased journalism. They have a whole lineup of anti-Trump pundits that incessantly bash the president. Trump refers to them as “fake news.”
Supporting President Trump has made Kirstie Alley a target of the Left, especially in Hollywood. Filmmaker Judd Apatow and actress Shelly Long, among numerous other Leftist celebrities, have ridiculed Alley for her support of Trump. Alley snapped back earlier this month at the backlash, deriding her critics for being rude and “nasty” to her.
“Don’t think I’ve ever seen so much name-calling in my life,” she wrote. “Definitely not on my site here anyway I guess I’m not allowed to have a viewpoint without being called a really nasty names by what I’m going to suppose are really nasty people.”
In an interview with Sean Hannity, Alley spoke of her support for Trump and how she is handling the backlash by her peers.
Sean recited hateful quotes of opposition towards Alley: “You should rot in hell,” and “You don’t have a brain,” were two examples. He also remarked how the Left has attacked her personal religious beliefs. Then Sean asked Kirstie why she thought that was.
Kirstie responded, “You know they always attack the same three things… that you know, I’m a fat, irrelevant, Scientologist so… but you know this has been going on for 40 years, so, I, I’m sort of prepared. That really is basically all they have to offer so I honestly don’t take it too personally because I feel that people are angry and they have the right to say what they want to say and I have the right to block them if I don’t like the way they speak.”
Kirstie explained to Hannity that she voted for Trump the first time because he’s not a politician. Then the Left mocked her and said she didn’t know what a politician even was. She simply does not back down from bullies on the Left no matter what they say to her or how they use the fear of COVID-19 as a weapon against Trump.
