Lindsay Lohan tweeted out support for Donald Trump over the long July 4 holiday weekend, urging people to stop bullying the president.
On Monday, the actress replied to a tweet with a screenshot of a Breitbart article about Trump’s willingness to help Charlie Gard, a baby in Britain whose parents are unable to afford to keep him on life support.
“THIS IS our president,” Lohan tweeted. “Stop #bullying him & start trusting him. Thank you personally for supporting #THEUSA.”
In another tweet, the former “Mean Girls” star said that the Trump family “are kind people. As an American, why speak poorly of anyone?”
Earlier on Monday, Trump had tweeted that he would be “delighted” to help the infant Gard.
Lohan has voiced support for Trump before. “I think always in the public eye you’re going to be scrutinised,” she said to the Daily Mail in February. “He is the president — we have to join him. If you can’t beat him, join him.”
The president, however, previously made less nice comments about the actress, and talked about what it would be like to sleep with her in a 2004 appearance on Howard Stern’s radio show.
“She’s probably deeply troubled and therefore great in bed,” Trump said.
The replies to Lohan’s tweet run the gamut from Trump supporters to Trump resisters, but many seemed surprised at Lohan’s support of the president.
“Stop trying to make Trump happen. It’s not going to happen,” said one Twitter user playing off of a line from “Mean Girls.”
Another user said, “Lindsay was hacked.”
Still others were happy with the actress’ tweet.
