YouTube sensations Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson joined Donald Trump on stage at his Raleigh, North Carolina rally Friday night.
“How great are they!” Trump exclaimed while the duo — known as Diamond and Silk — walked onto the stage.
“I turn on my television one night,” a hoarse Trump said, “and I see these two on television. I say ‘they are the greatest.’ They became an internet sensation.”
The Republican front runner then invited Hardaway to “do a little routine,” which she eagerly accepted.
“First of all, I’m glad that the media can see us,” she said. “I want everybody to know that we stand behind Donald J. Trump!
“We support Donald J. Trump! We endorse Donald J. Trump,” the pair said simultaneously 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 build that wall and he’s going to build it tall and it’s going to protect us all,” Hardaway said.
“We don’t want this country to fall do we?” she said. “Build that wall Donald J. Trump,” Hardaway said as she was embraced by the candidate.
The pair has produced several viral videos promoting — and defending — Trump.
The hosts of “The Viewers View” rocketed to online stardom when they defended the candidate over his treatment during the first Republican presidential debate.
“Okay, so it’s a day after the debates and you all know I am mad as hell,” Hardaway began the August video, which has since amassed over 1.4 million views. “Somebody already tried to come for Donald, so I’ve got to come for them.”
Hardaway objected to moderator Megyn Kelly’s opening question to Trump, asking him to respond to comments he made on Twitter towards Rosie O’Donnell.
“Here’s the damn deal, Megyn Kelly, or Kelly Megyn, whatever your name is: Rosie O’Donnell started that whole foolishness! She was on The View and she was the one who spoke out against Donald and Donald had to come back on her!
“So I don’t know why you’re gonna make this here a part of your forum last night. You know, perhaps you don’t need to be hosting debates! Perhaps — maybe it’s time for us to file Kelly and make her go back to reporting news at the local news! Try Sesame Street! Maybe you should go back and report news for Sesame Street and have a debate with them.”
The pair is now leading a “ditch and switch” campaign, encouraging black Americans to drop their allegiance to the Democratic Party and join Trump’s campaign.
