Dolly Parton refuses to bash Trump on ABC's 'Nightline': ‘I’m not in politics, I’m an entertainer’

Once again, Dolly Parton has been thrust into the throws of American politics for simply keeping her "damn" mouth shut. This time, the "9 to 5" singer shut down David Wright of ABC's "Nightline" when he asked the country music superstar if she had anything to say about the nation's political climate.

The interview took place on Sunday night just before the Oscar's, but Dolly didn't budge, not even a little bit.

Wright pressed her for comments on sexism and the White House, but all Dolly gave him was "I'm not getting political. I don't do politics. I’m not getting into any of that. I have a lot of fans out there and don’t want to offend anybody. Besides, I just don’t get into that. If you are deciding you may want to ask me something more serious, don’t, because I’m not going to answer it."

"I might still ask," responded Wright. "Well, you can ask but I might still tell you where to put it," she quipped.

ABC's team then ran a clip from the 1980 film "9 to 5" depicting a villainous boss which -- let's face it --  was a blatant dig at President Tump.

"You're a sexist, egotistical, lying bigot," says actress Jane Fonda who portrays Judy Bernly in the movie.

Wright likened the character to Trump, and Dolly had none of it. "We have a president of the United States who said those things on that bus," said Wright.

"I'm not addressing that," said Dolly. "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'm an entertainer."
