Country music superstar Reba McEntire is the latest artist to
 endorse the idea that entertainers should not preach their 
political opinions to their fans.

The View co-host Joy Behar broached the topic with McEntire
 Wednesday by referencing rapper Drake’s recent F-bomb
laced anti-Donald Trump rant. “F*ck that man!” Drake told a 
sold-out crowd in England after a lengthy screed about 
Trump dividing Americans.

Behar asked McEntire, “If you ever went on a political rant
 in the middle of your act, what would happen?”

“My fans would be shocked,” the two-time Grammy-winner
said. “I take it this way: they have paid their hard-earned 
money to come in there and fill a seat — parking, getting
something at the concession stand, go and eat before
 the concert — I am there to entertain them, to take their 
worries away from them, so when they walk out, they can
 kind of have a little lift in their step and go, ‘Aw, that was 
such a great break from all the problems I have to deal 
with during daily life.’ So I’m not going to give them my 
political views.”
