Dolly Parton's Sister, Stella, Lays Into 'Old Moldy Politicians' For Getting Vaccine Before Others

The rollout of the Moderna vaccine for the pandemic has begun. One person who had a bit of a personal investment in Moderna getting off the ground is Dolly Parton.

Literally.

Dolly donated a million dollars to help fund the vaccine's research.

But now Parton's sister, Stella, is sounding off over the fact members of congress, including many pandemic deniers, are getting vaccinated before front-line workers and those most vulnerable.

Last Friday, the country singer, writer and actress tweeted:

"If a little Hillbilly singer like my big sister Dolly can invest in the vaccine then why the hell can't some of you old moldy politicians pitch in a few million yourselves?"
"I noticed you started getting vaccinated right away while people are starving and dying you Aholes."

She didn't spare televangelists either.

She added:

"I haven't heard of one Televangelist donating one damn cent to the research fund but they sure can fleece the flock and try to cast out demons when they are possessed themselves!"
"If Paula White and Kenneth Copeland didn't convince you then what about Benny Hinn?"
"BTW, he and Paula were caught 'holding hands' coming out of a hotel in Rome or Paris, not sure which but come on people, really!!"
"Oh, let's not forget Jerry Falwell Jr. and his lovely spouse."

Parton has no patience for hypocrisy.

Many were here for Stella's critique of the mega-church millionaires.

Others were more focused on her comments about Congress.

And most simply cheered both Parton sisters on.

Hopefully the Moderna vaccine will help bring the pandemic to an end, thanks in no small part to Stella's big sister, Dolly Parton.
