Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump finally got the endorsement he's been waiting for: actress and comedian Kirstie Alley.

The "Cheers" star tweeted her support of The Donald and added, "Takes balls to go for POTUS ... My hat's off to anyone brave enough to aspire & give it their best shot. Lucky to [be] in USA where it's possible." 

If you assumed backing the most unpopular presidential candidate this year would be controversial, you'd be right. 

Alley's tweet brought a flurry of tweets her way, and she's spent some time defending her choice for president. But, honestly, Alley's endorsement shouldn't be that much of a surprise. In January, she praised the billionaire for "waking this country up." 

"If you hate him, you're going to talk about how much you hate him. If you love him, you're going to talk about how much you love him. I think that's a really great step for this country because this country's gotten very complacent," she told Fox Business

And Alley seems to have faith that her choice is headed to the White House, saying, "I have a damn good voting record of choosing presidents elected ... Carter, Reagan, G.W. Bush, Clinton, Obama ... Happy with 3 of my choices."
