Dolly Parton Turned Down Medal of Freedom Twice From The Trump Administration, Now Biden Is Offering!
We all love Dolly Parton, right? She’s America’s sweet little ol’ Aunt that just wants everyone to smile and love one another.
It was recently revealed that the legendary country singer turned down Donald Trump twice when he offered her the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
During a recent interview on the Today Show, Parton explained that she wasn’t trying to be political, it’s just, both times she was offered, she couldn’t make it.
I couldn’t accept it because my husband was ill and then they asked me again about it and I wouldn’t travel because of the COVID.
Now it’s been confirmed that Biden’s administration has already reached out to her, but she’s worried if she accepts it, people will think she’s playing politics.
“Now, I feel like if I take it, I’ll be doing politics, so I’m not sure,” she said during the interview, before adding that she’s not even sure she deserves the award.
Of course, she does deserve it. Honestly. I’m not even sure what the damn award actually means, but I know she deserves it. Not only has she provided the world with some classic tunes, but she also has a big heart. She started the Imagination Library, which has donated more than 100 million books.
She also donated $1 million to fund COVID-19 research at Vanderbilt University, which helped develop the Moderna vaccine. So yeah, she’s pretty damn cool in our book.
Even Obama admitted he wished he would have given her the award when he was president…
ACCEPT THE AWARD, DOLLY!
