‘Keep your damn mouth shut …’ ABC tries to get Dolly Parton to trash Trump and her answer is brilliant


Reaching all the way back to the iconic 1980 movie “9 to 5,” which featured Dolly Parton, ABC News tried in vain to get country music legend to denounce President Donald Trump by likening him to the sexist boss in the film.

“The sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical portrayed so effectively in that movie by actor Dabney Coleman hasn’t exactly disappeared from the culture,” said Nightline correspondent David Wright. “We have a president of the United States who said the things on that bus.”

That a “journalist” can espouse such rank bias without a trace of shame is another matter altogether, but Parton proved to be a little too sharp for Wright’s taste.

“I’m not addressing that. I do not get into that,” the singer declared. “Of course I have my opinion about everybody and everything. But I learned a long time ago, keep your damn mouth shut if you want to stay in show business. I’m not in politics. I am an entertainer.”


Not only does that explain Dolly’s success over the years and why she is so beloved, it’s also a valuable lesson liberal entertainers can learn from.

“And yet you’re also a role model,” Wright interjected, in a feeble attempt to guilt the singer into trashing the president.

Of course, this is the same journalist who once likened Sarah Palin, the first woman in history to earn the Republican Party’s vice-presidential nomination, to a “Barbie” doll.

So much for his take on role models.

In light of all the focus on sexual harassment, prompted by a number of Hollywood scandals, Parton said that she and “9 to 5” co-stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda are in agreement to “do another one.”
