Dolly Parton appeared on the Emmy Awards show Sunday evening with fellow stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda as they appeared to insult President Donald Trump, but she kept her silence as they continued.

What did they say about Trump?

The veiled references got a lot of applause from the audience at the Emmys from the stars of "9 to 5," a popular movie released in 1980.

"Personally, I have been waiting for a '9 to 5' reunion ever since we did the first one," Parton said.

"Well, back in 1980," Jane Fonda added, "in that movie, we refused to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot."

"And in 2017, we still refuse to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot!" Lily Tomlin responded to great applause.

"So that being said, tonight we're here to recognize some men who conduct themselves with the utmost integrity," Fonda continued.

Here's the video:

Here's the reaction:

Many believed Dolly Parton's silence during the joke was meant to show her reticence to join in on the insult against President Trump.

But others believed she was complicit in the veiled insult.

The Emmys had other moments exposing a political agenda of some of the attendees, including Kate McKinnon of "Saturday Night Live" thanking Hillary Clinton for her grace during her acceptance speech for impersonating Clinton during the election.
