This morning an interview with Dolly Parton aired on the Today Show, where Dolly said she’s turned down the Presidential Medal of Freedom twice from the Trump administration. Dolly said she couldn’t accept the first time because her husband was sick. Then they asked again, but she wouldn’t travel “because of the COVID.” While she says she’s not deserving of the award, Dolly Parton did donate $1 million toward the development of the Moderna vaccine last year. Biden has also offered her the award, but she doesn’t want to accept it now, because she feels like she’d “be doing politics.”
