Dolly Parton has said the US Presidential election “could always use more boobs”.
Her comments come in the wake of reports that she had endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
Parton was quoted in an interview with The New York Times as saying she thought it “would be wonderful” if Clinton became president. “Hillary might make as good a president as anybody ever has,” she said. “So if she gets it, I’ll certainly be behind her.”
As Rolling Stone reports, she has since clarified those comments, saying she was not endorsing one candidate over another.
“This morning while I was watching the news I saw many reports that I had endorsed Hillary Clinton,” read a statement released by Parton. “My comment about supporting a woman in the White House was taken out of context. I have not endorsed Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump.
I try not to get political but if I am, I might as well just run myself ’cause I’ve got the hair for it, it’s huge, and they could always use more boobs in the race. But seriously, I have not decided who I’m voting for, but no matter what we’re gonna be suffering from P.M.S.: Presidential Mood Swings.”
