In early 2016, Loretta Lynn expressed her support for Donald Trump’s bid for president: “[He’s] the only one who’s going to turn this country around,” the country icon said at the time. Now, in a new interview, Lynn is sharing more of her thoughts about President Trump, and the recent protests against his presidency and recently enacted legislation.
“I think they ought to leave him alone and let him do his job. That’s what I think,” Lynn tells Rolling Stone. “He’s up there and he’s the president. They need to help him, not hinder him. Everybody ought to pitch in and help, do everything they can to help the man.”
On Jan. 21, the day after Trump’s inauguration, millions of Americans, and supporters around the world, rallied and marched in protest of his presidency; these Women’s Marches drew, per Reuters estimates, nearly 5 million people overall. While Lynn — whose biggest hits include the taboo-for-their-time “Rated X,” “Don’t Come Home a’Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind)” and “The Pill” — admits that she thinks “a march is fine,” she adds that “[t]hey should have done it with more class.”
“I thought that Madonna and Ashley Judd … they got a little too far out,” Lynn explains. “For God’s sake, march if you want to, but do it with class.”
