Like millions out there, I did not watch liberal Hollywood’s “backslapping” get-together because…I never do.  But I have seen the video clip all over the media of Dolly on stage with U.S. traitor Jane Fonda and one of the worst liberal comedians I ever knew, Lily Tomlin, and wondered just like everybody else…What the hell is she doing up there with these two losers!

Well here is the answer, and I must say that I’m still very disappointed with her for her below-the-radar liberal support…and especially for not being more vocal about how it all went down at the “backslapping” get-together!

While she was on stage at the Emmy Awards Sunday night, Dolly Parton didn’t say a single word about Donald Trump or the state of U.S. politics. 

But for many viewers, her presence during one of the show’s most anti-Trump moments spoke volumes. 

The country star reunited with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin — her castmates in the 1980 movie “9 to 5” — to present the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a miniseries.

“In that movie, we refused to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot,” said Fonda.

“And in 2017, we still refuse to be controlled by a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot,” added Tomlin. 

Parton eyes widened a bit, but before Tomlin was finished saying “bigot,” she was smiling. After cracking a joke about “support,” she returned to the subject.

“I think that Lily was talking about Mr. Hart,” she said, referring to the villain in “9 to 5,” played by Dabney Coleman.  

“He’s still up to his no good stuff, right? How about a shout out for Dabney Coleman out there? I’m just here to have a good time tonight.”

The speech was applauded and derided, of course. While video of the moment was spread wide on social media, many of Parton’s fans headed to her Facebook page to express their disappointment.

The top-voted comments on Parton’s most recent post — which was about last week’s ACM Honors telecast — are universally critical of her participation.

“I’m saddened that you would stand with these idiots and bash our POTUS.”

“You just threw so many of your fans under the bus.”

“You stood up there while those two ran their mouths. You are just as bad.” 

Parton hasn’t commented since the Emmys broadcast. Last year, she came under similar scrutiny for complimenting then-presidential candidate Hilary Clinton, saying “Hillary (Clinton) might make as good a president as anybody ever has…personally think a woman would do a great job. I think Hillary’s very qualified. So if she gets it, I’ll certainly be behind her.”
