Here’s a colossal understatement for you. Hollywood celebs aren’t crazy about the Donald. They use every opportunity to take verbal swipes at the Trump and conservatism as a whole. Well, everyone except for Dolly Parton, of course. She’s perfectly content to leave the politics to the politicians:
“Lily and Jane are Lily and Jane and I’m Dolly. I can’t tell everyone what to do. Everybody knows I don’t do politics. My mother was a Democrat and my daddy was a Republican, so I’m a hypocrat.
I’ve got as many Republican fans as Democrats and I don’t want to make any of them mad at me, so I don’t play politics. Plus I’m an entertainer, and I don’t usually voice my opinion in a situation like that. I was just happy to be back with them to get that standing ovation about the movie.

No need to keep repeating yourselves.
It’s funny how celebrities behave like they’re our moral arbiters. Especially when you consider the decades of rape and harassment they swept under the priceless Persian carpet up until a few weeks ago. After that revelation, I’d say you folks are the moral arbiters of diddly squat.
The entertainment industry is full of air-headed dunces. Entertainers are paid to do just that. Entertain. Movie and music lovers just want to check out and forget about the world’s problems for two hours. Not listen to elitists’ tone deaf lectures about politics. Dolly Parton is one of the few who understands such things. And that, Dolly, is why we will always love you.
Now, if only her fellow entertainers could learn to take a hint:
