'Frasier' Star Praises Trump: 'He Does Shake Things Up'

Though many Hollywood celebrities have spoken out against President Trump, Kelsey Grammer is not one of them, according to Canoe.

The website reported that the actor, who rose to fame on the television series “Cheers” and later starred on “Frasier,” voted for Trump in the 2016 election.

Grammer told the BBC: “I think he’s doing what he said he was going to do. He’s a bit of a loudmouth, and he does shake things up. He promised a few things that I thought, ‘maybe he can get that done, maybe he can’t get that done.’ Donald Trump just won in a way, in a world, where nobody thought he would. And so there’s just anger – it’s filled with anger now.”

Grammer acknowledged that being a Republican in the entertainment business, which Democrats dominate, is like having “a target on your back.” He said that although he is “respected in the industry,” he is “probably reviled in some of the back channels.”

When asked whether he would ever consider running for public office, the actor replied: “I don’t think so. It’s just too nasty now. I guess you could always rise above it, but just don’t think it’s really cut out for me anymore.”

The 62-year-old father of seven children fondly recalled the 20 years he portrayed Dr. Frasier Crane. “The beauty of playing Frasier was you could pretty much do everything,” he said.

The actor continued, “I mean, could pull out every trick I’ve got in my bag and it would still fit on Frasier. He was loud and big and boisterous and then subtle and beautiful and touching, and you had all the notes you can play. It was almost as though all of creation was sitting there in the middle of Frasier’s stomach, churning and ready to come popping out any time.”

Trump lost some of his few celebrity supporters in October 2016, when they heard the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape. Vocalist Aaron Carter, rap artist Azealia Banks and actress Kirstie Alley were among them, according to Business Insider.

However, the website reported that at least 29 other entertainers remained committed to the Republican candidate. They included former professional athletes Mike Tyson and Dennis Rodman, and musicians Kid Rock and Ted Nugent.

Jon Voight told the right-wing Breitbart News that Trump was “an answer to our problems.” The actor described the real-estate mogul as “funny, playful and colorful, but most of all … honest.”

In a statement for the news site, Voight wrote: “There are many Republicans fighting to keep him from winning the Republican nomination. You know why? Because he has no bull to sell, and everyone will discover the bull most politicians spew out is for their own causes and benefits.”

Scott Baio, known for his roles on “Happy Days” and “Joanie Loves Chachi,” revealed on Fox News that he was backing Trump. “He speaks like I speak,” the actor explained.

During his speech at the Republican National Convention in July 2016, Baio declared: “We need Donald Trump to fix this. Is Donald Trump a messiah? No, he’s just a man, a man who wants to give back to his country, America, the country that has given him everything. Hillary Clinton wants to be president for Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump wants to be president for all of us. So, of course, let’s make America great again, but let’s make America America again.”
