Donald Trump met with some unlikely allies and very vocal supporters while speaking in North Carolina. Two women, Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, made their way to the podium after being referred to by Trump as “an online sensation” that would happily “do a little routine.” These ladies were indeed thrilled to do so.
A bit of background is necessary. Hardaway and Richardson have become known as the “Stump for Trump” duo after penning a website called “Diamonds and Silk,” which devotes an entire menu bar to their idol. None of this makes sense, but neither does the spectacle of black pastors meeting with Trump at his NYC headquarters after their brethren took him to task over his numerous controversial statements. Not to mention how he praised the roughing up of a Black Lives Matter protester at a recent rally.
Still, Hardaway and Richardson were pleased to stump for their man. Ms. Hardaway was particularly vocal:
“I want everybody to know that we stand behind Donald J. Trump! We endorse Donald J. Trump! And this is going to be our next president of these United States! The silent majority has spoken, baby! Don’t get it twisted. Now listen, he gon’ put that wall up! He gon’ build that wall! And he gon’ build it tall! And it’s gon’ protect us all! We don’t want this country to fall, do we?! Build that wall, Donald J. Trump!”
Well, then. These women have previously voiced plenty of support for Trump, but they are also anti-immigration and anti-everything. There isn’t much left to say here, but luckily, Trump is here to fill in with his own response: “How good? What people. What great people.”
