Diamond and Silk whose real names are Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson are sisters who became popular during President Trump’s first run for the presidency. Both are former Democrats and after seeing President Trump at one of his rallies, soon after became Republicans. They joined up with the President in Raleigh, North Carolina and also in Biloxi, Mississippi to help bring in voters and the rest is history.
They are a powerhouse duo on several social media platforms and have millions of followers and page likes. Recently, the sisters found themselves in the sights of the press for what some have been calling the ‘Coronavirus Conspiracies’. Via The Hollywood Reporter,
“On Monday, the pair — Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson — made several questionable comments about the virus during an hour-and-10-minute “Chit Chat Live” broadcast.
“Silk” called New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo a “mofo” and accused him of “hoarding” ventilators.
“Diamond” cast doubt on how many New Yorkers have died from the virus, a tally that stands at 932 as of Tuesday morning.
“What I need to know is how many people have passed away in New York, and what I need to know is: Who has the bodies?” she asked. “I need for somebody that does investigative work to call the morgues. To call the funeral homes. We need to know, because I don’t trust anything else that comes out of his mouth now. … Something’s not right here. Something is off here.”
“Silk” asked: “How is that you can go to the grocery store, but you can’t go to work?”
After talking about the infected residents at retirement homes in Washington State and Maryland, “Diamond” asked: “Is this being deliberately spread? Look, I’m not being a conspiracy theorist, this is real, but I’m asking my own questions: What the hell is going on?”
“The pair then took it one step further, questioning whether the exponential growth in the national death count was a product of media manipulation to hurt President Trump. “Something’s off about this,” “Diamond” said. “In a matter of two weeks, over 1,000 people supposedly died from the coronavirus,” “Silk” said. “In a two week’s time period. … My president said on March 24, Tuesday, this past week, my president said that he would love for America to be back up and running. At the time he said it, there was 25,489 case, with 307 deaths. Instantaneously, you had the media calling President Trump out. …
“Me and you was talking, and I said, ‘Now watch the number of deaths go up. Watch everything increase,’ because they want to make it look bad in front of our eyes. Here it is, five days later, as of yesterday, it jumped from 25,480 up to 121,478 cases. It went from 307 deaths to 2,226 deaths in five days.”
“Silk” also questioned the rapid spread of the virus in New Orleans, after Mardi Gras. “A month later, all of a sudden, kaboom,” she said. “All of a sudden.”
“Silk” said of the coronavirus: “This is something that was man-made. … I think it’s a little Deep State action going on behind the scenes. … To me, this is something undercover. It is engineered.”
The press will find anything they can to go after people who are on the President’s side. Diamond and Silk have had enough of being bullied and took to their Twitter account to express their frustrations tweeting,
“You will NOT bully us from questioning things that don’t feel normal. We’re Americans too & you will NOT deny us our freedom to be part of the conversation. We have questions & you will NOT silence us from asking them. Don’t come for us unless we send for you. You’ve been warned!”
