Actor Kelsey Grammer threw his liberal fans into a tailspin after openly discussing his support for President Donald Trump.

The 63-year-old actor, well known for his role in the TV sitcom “Fraiser,” took a dig at the left as he spoke about his support of Brexit and Trump during an interview with BBC Radio.

While admitting he isn’t a “big government guy,” Grammer acknowledged the presenter’s observation that it is “unusual” for him to be a Trump supporter in liberal Hollywood.

“I’m a conservative. I have been for a long time. I’m just not a big government guy,” Grammer said, straying off the topic of his performance in the English National Opera’s musical “Man of La Mancha.”

“I do overhear the talk about Brexit and stuff and I think, ‘Well, why are they voting again for it?'” Grammer went on, referring to the impending departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union. “I think, well couldn’t you vote once?”

“But that’s a bit like – we do this in America too these days,” he added. “It’s sort of like you keep voting until you get the result you want.”

When asked if “controversies” surrounding Trump may have caused him to have any “change of mind,” Grammer replied that he was okay with the president’s policies.

“In terms of policy, I don’t have a lot of problems with what he’s doing. He’s a bit of a brat, I guess you could say,” he continued. “And that is astounding for people especially for people who come from the more liberal side of politics. They’re used to being the brats.”

Grammer went on to note how Trump’s ability to come back at his critics has been a surprise for some.

“They just never had anybody come back at them in the same way. We’ve witnessed in American politics the same basic language since Ronald Reagan,” he explained. “This is the first guy who fires back, so it’s really unpleasant and they thought he shouldn’t be elected anyway.”

The actor’s comments caused a crisis on social media where the left was disappointed by his conservative stance and shocking approval of Trump.

But many Twitter users mocked the over-dramatic outcry.

Grammer’s political views were no surprise, however, to anyone who was paying attention.

Fans of Grammer, who once told BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs that being a Republican in Hollywood is like having a “target on your back,” couldn’t have been happier.
