Diamond & Silk have once again put on their good tapdancing shoes and polished up those pearly whites to smooch more of President Donald Trump’s wide behind. The Fox News’ hosts are claiming that the tally of deaths stemming from the coronavirus and COVID-19 situation are baked to make Trump look terrible in the media.
Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, the real names of Diamond & Silk, hopped on their live video broadcast over the weekend to make the explosive and dangerous claims that the reports of death are being falsified.
“In a matter of two weeks, over 1,000 people supposedly died from the coronavirus. In a two weeks time period, over 1,000 people after being tested positive have died from the coronavirus,” Silk is seen saying on the video before adding that “it took 39 days, from January all the way up to February the 29th” for the first person to die as Diamond chimed in.
The two engaged in more incoherent banter while heaping praise on President Trump as they often do.
“Here’s another thing. My president said on March the 24th, Tuesday this past week, my president said that he would love for America to be back up and running,” Silk continues.
She added, “At the time he said it there was 25,489 cases with 307 deaths. Instantaneously, you had the media calling President Trump out, he wanted open by Easter, he want this open by Easter – me and you was talking, I said now watch the number of deaths go up.
On Twitter, the hosts’ names began trending on with folks pointing out their fallacy as expected. We’ve got those reactions listed below.
The families of those who have died from #coronavirus should sued Diamond and Silk for these bullshit lies— BlackWomenAreKryptoniteToGOP (@battletested5) March 31, 2020

The same "people" who are tweeting "WRONG AGAIN RACHEL" are the same rubes who are getting their love on with Diamond & Silk and #MyPillowGuy. Nothing more really needs to be said...— Duug of the Dead (@Duugy13) March 31, 2020

Diamond and Silk
Where's your proof? Get a list of names of the deceased and read off the names of the fake deaths. Their grieving loved ones would like to know they're still alive.
FFS why are these dumbasses a thing anyway?
By the end of this, Fauci and Birx will be replaced by Diamond and Silk and a My Pillow, not the guy the actual pillow.— Aaron (@TheSarcasmShow) March 31, 2020
Diamond & Silk are buffoons and they are spreading disinformation. This type of ramblefuckery is dangerous. pic.twitter.com/4lPk8OLJMH— Christopher Bouzy (@cbouzy) March 31, 2020
What do you call someone who is evil enough to lie and claim the media is inflating death counts to hurt Trump, thereby downplaying the gravity of this pandemic and endangering lives?— 💙Rapunzel™ BLM-Trump LOST!💙 (@co_rapunzel4) March 31, 2020
Diamond and Silk.
Fox News idiots Diamond and Silk claim the media is inflating death counts to hurt Trump. To which Jeanine Pirro replied, "Has anyone seen my blender, the vermouth or that big jug of margarita mix? It's called responsible newscasting, people" pic.twitter.com/Rm9qNDdoHB— Paul Rudnick (@PaulRudnickNY) March 31, 2020
If any body who calls themselves “Diamond and Silk” doesn’t have a fire ass catalog of R&B songs from the 90s, I don’t want to hear one thing that comes out of their mouths. Falsetto and hitting notes bitches, that’s it.— 🇵🇷Aida 🇩🇴Rodriguez 🏁 (@FunnyAida) March 31, 2020
Diamond & Silk saying media is inflating death toll numbers of coronavirus to hurt Trump is vile-think of family's mourning loved ones who died from virus who hear this BS. This isn't new: Trump+Fox News have been making claim for a month that virus was a "hoax" to hurt Trump.— (((DeanObeidallah))) (@DeanObeidallah) March 31, 2020
