Who needs the liberal mainstream media when you have Diamond and Silk? The YouTube sensations known as the "Stump for Trump" ladies joined Donald Trump on stage at his North Carolina rally on Friday, bringing down the house with their enthusiastic rhetoric about the candidate.
Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, known as Diamond and Silk, amassed millions of views on social media for their videos extolling the virtues of Trump, and as a result, the Republican frontrunner brought the two ladies on stage for a live rendition.
“I turn on my television one night, and I see these two on television. I say ‘they are the greatest.’ They became an Internet sensation. I hope you monetized it,” Trump said before handing the mic over to the pair.
And then, the roof started to raise. “First of all, I’m glad that the media can see us. I want everybody to know that we stand behind Donald J. Trump! We support Donald J. Trump! We endorse Donald J. Trump,” the pair told the crowd to wild applause. “And this is going to be our next president of these United States! The silent majority has spoken, baby!”
“He’s going to put that wall up, he gonna build that wall and he’s gonna build it tall, and it’s going to protect us all,” Hardaway told the cheering crowd. “We don’t want this country to fall do we? Build that wall Donald J. Trump.”
