Most recently, Roseanne Barr has sparked controversy for her vocal support of President Trump (and her promotion of far-right conspiracy theories).

Business Insider: 31 celebrities who have publicly supported President Trump

Roseanne Barr

Trump's most vocal celebrity supporter of late, Roseanne Barr has a history of tweeting her support of the president.

"4 those who wonder-back in the day when I was called a 'liberal' by journalists, I used to answer-'I'm not a Liberal, I'm a radical' & I still am-I voted Trump 2 shake up the status quo & the staid establishment," Barr tweeted in December.

Jon Voight

In a statement to Breitbart in 2016, the actor said that he supported Donald Trump as the Republican nominee because "he's an answer to our problems." Voight also called Trump "funny, playful, and colorful, but most of all, he is honest."

He added, "He has no bull to sell, and everyone will discover the bull most politicians spew out is for their own causes and benefits."

Before Trump's inauguration in January 2017, Voight said at a Washington D.C. rally of Trump that Abraham Lincoln "is smiling knowing America will be saved by an honest and good man who will work for the all the people."

Scott Baio

The "Happy Days" and "Joanie Loves Chachi" star has previously said he likes how Trump communicates. ("He speaks like I speak," he told FoxNews' Judge Jeanine Pirro.)

In his speech at the RNC in July 2016, Baio said, "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," he added. "So, of course, let's make America great again, but let's make America, America again."

Gene Simmons

The Kiss member told Rolling Stone in 2016 that Trump is "good for the political system."

He supported Trump's idea to build a wall, saying, "The Pope has said the wall is unkind, but it's interesting that at the Vatican there's a wall. They don't want people on the outside coming into the Vatican."

Though the article largely shows Simmons displaying his approval of Trump, toward the end, Simmons makes his support a little less clear: "Trump is not a politician. He does not need your money, and he will speak his mind, God damn it, whether you like it or not. And he has no problem saying, 'F--- off.' I like that. Even if I disagree."

John Ratzenberger

The "Cheers" and "Toy Story" star announced his support for candidate Trump on Fox News.

"I want us to become self-reliant again ... The only candidate out there is Donald Trump, for me, because he's a builder," he said. "He understands better than anybody that if we lose the people — average age is 58 years old by the way of people that actually know how to build things — once they're gone, they're gone and we don't have anybody comin' up behind them."
