Dolly Parton: Clinton and Trump ‘Both Nuts’
Dolly Parton criticized both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton on Friday, calling them both “nuts.”
“I don’t know where they’re going to land but I think they’re both nuts,” Parton told CNN on Friday, calling the presidential race “the greatest show on television right now.”
The Hill reports:
The “9 to 5” singer called on Clinton and Trump to stop attacking each other and instead offer solutions for Americans who are struggling.
“Let’s talk about what we really need — taking care of us,” she said. “I think people just want to have a feeling of security. It’s just like political terrorism right now, they got us all scared to death about everything.”
Parton compared the 2016 presidential race to the media circus surrounding O.J. Simpson’s murder trial in the 1990s.
“You just believe whoever’s up next. Whoever testified last is who you believe,” she said.
Parton touted the success of the women’s rights movement, but said there is still further room to grow.
“We’ve come a long way, but we’re still talking about it,” she said. “We’re doing good. We got a woman that could go in the White House, so we’ve certainly come a long way.”
