Ruth Buzzi: ‘Entertainers should entertain,’ leave politics to the experts

Ignorant celebrities have a knack for shooting their mouths off about politics, which, to put it bluntly, is exhausting and irritating. Thankfully, not all entertainers feel the need to unload their political views on the general public. Ruth Buzzi, comedienne and “Laugh-In” regular, took to Twitter today to issue a gentle reminder to loud-mouthed celebrities to stick to their day jobs:

And we shouldn’t look to celebrities for anything more than entertainment.


Hear, hear! Well said, Ms. Buzzi. Here’s hoping that your colleagues will follow your very sensible lead.

    Loved this tweet from: @Ruth_A_Buzzi
    I’d keep tweeting, but it’s almost time to put on my black robe and get back to my duties on the Supreme Court. Decisions, decisions.Because Rush Limbaugh calls Judge Ruth Bader Ginsberg: Ruth Buzzi Ginsberg. Way to give a broad hint, Ruth! Loved it!

    well, we quit CASTLE and a host of other primetime shows in the last few weeks, the WATCH List is getting shorter and shorter as the democrats wage their war against us Americans. they must not care if more than half of America stops watching their shows. wonder how their sponsors will feel when they hear from us disappointed and disgusted customers too. get out the checkerboard, kids.

  • Lor Mazz

    Wow is she on the supreme court!!!

    • Brian Roastbeef

      A subtle hint as to where her loyalties lie? See Harriet’s comment above. “Ruth Buzzi Ginsburg” is a Rush-ism…

  • SAndrews

    Is that another chicken joke?

    Sock it to me!

    Love Ruth Buzzi

    Way to go Ruth Buzzi! I loved her on Carol Burnett’s show! She’s awesome…love her even more now.

    I have seen footage of the Dean Martin Roasts, and it was the funniest things I have ever watched. Ruth Buzzi was an absolute gem to watch. The humor had such an edge to it without being grotesquely inappropriate or mean. I tried to watch a comedy roast a few years ago and it was the least funny and most unpleasant display of vulgarity by some very talentless and mean people, the only funny and talented comedian present was Jon Lovitz. Mz. Buzzi could teach many of the so-called comedians today a thing or two about comedy, particularly, that there is a clear difference between what is actually funny and what is just vulgar.

    Gladys Ormphby gets it. Unfortunately, the moron’s who have contaminated the entertainment industry will never comprehend why she’s correct in what she says.

  • D. Rose Gregory

    Thanks Ruth. We need more celebrities like you.

  • PennyBeach

    Love the Ruth.

  • Jason4Breakfast

    I love Ruth Buzzi’s opinion that we shouldn’t care about Ruth Buzzi’s opinion.

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      We don’t care about yours either. Congrats, you’re in good company. Now if only you’d stfu about it like she does.

  • Marcy Cook

    Am I hearing the voice of sanity??? How refreshing! How intelligent! Ruth Buzzi using her Lady Smarts and not her Lady parts. BRAVO!

  • Thom Harris

    LOL…and there is a reason why we like the older actors. Most of them followed one rule. Shut up and entertain.

  • TraderBill

    Wise and thoughtful. Thank you, Ruth!

  • TocksNedlog

    Condemned & blacklisted.

  • Owen007

    Most liberals in Hollywood will probably assume this doesn’t apply to them, and that would make sense. After all, they haven’t been entertaining in years… if ever.

  • brianmouland

    Hey Ruth think you just schooled most of Hollywood ,great job!
