    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.’

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

    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 ‘pussygate’ tape emerged.
