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.

    People, U REALLY don’t know just how dangerous Trump is, allow me a minute. We ALL know that there is a behind the scenes power and this time they are being exposed by the Don. Proof? How about the RNC trying their best to railroad the Don. Do you REALLY think the general membership voted for McCain to win the nomination, seriously? He was manipulated in by the Kock bros who have been and continue to fund all the candidates EXCEPT the Don! I fear for his life, the rogue powers behind the scenes thought they would make Jeb as a shoe in, carrying out their manipulations as the pimps they are and increasing the fortunes of the powers to be. I wonder who got to Megan Kelly and the others to try to derail the Don.

    Trump’s demographic is dumb enough to believe he’s working in their best interests but honestly, it’s pretty clear that he’s not only paying people to act like this and play up on people’s stereotypical perceptions but also, he’s purposefully detracting the attention from the other GOP candidates so ensure a win for Hillary. They have a long history as being friends, he’s supported her husband’s policies in the past, and he’ll take this as far as he can before quitting at the last minute to fork over the election to Hillary. The egg will be all over his supporter’s face so… why not take advantage of their stupidity and convince them that he’s seriously running? Nothing changes public opinion faster than a false idol. More amazing, he’s willing to put his reputation on the line as a racist when he’s probably as blue as they come in all actuality. It’s all gotten too ridiculous to take it seriously or feel threatened.

      Baloney, Hillary is the opposite of what Donald Trump would subject America to, even if he had any power to do so. The people are going to vote and anybody with any sensibilities would never even consider a person, like Hillary that is just like Obama. They both messed-up the Middle-East to the point of no return. Only Trump will have enough smarts and guts to straighten this mess out.

    • Edmund Burke

      We’re not dumb enough to not see through pleading appeals like yours.

  • Don Corleone

    Blacks want that wall built.
    They’re tired of Mexicans jumping the line for the free stuff.

    • Nathan Bedford Forrest

      That’s really what it is. People pretend that the mexicans are taking jobs from blacks, and this upsets blacks, but they don’t want jobs. They’re worried about the “free stuff.”

    All of the politicians, that are running for President ,Republicans and Democrats alike, have sold their Souls to the donors and lobbyist. Donald Trump is the only one not beholden to anybody except The Constitution of the USA. Donald Trump Loves America and knows that its founders were all Judeo-Christian. Trump wants to make America Great Again. The ‘Silent Majority’ have found their voice.

  • Noneya

    These women crack me up!! After Mr. Trump is elected president they need their own show, seriously they are hilarious!

  • Elapoides

    I am for Donald Trump, and hopefully Ted Cruz or Sessions for VP. My fear is that Trump select Rubio as VP? Am I paranoid, or just dealing with the fear of establishment GOP RINO backstabbing syndrome?
    Look what Paul Ryan is about to do to all of us with the spending bill, which will fund blanket amnesty, and more…I hope & pray Trump reverses the damage.

  • Edmund Burke

    As I look at a variety of sources, face book pages, message boards I see A smattering of rinos but an avalanche of demo trolls masquerading as concerned commenters. The more steam Trump picks up, the closer to Iowa and New Hampshire he gets, the more the trolls and limp wrist rinos act concerned about our party and conjure up every reason under the sun to portray Trump as a dangerous impostor. Ignore them. It’s just panic setting in w/ them. Steady the ship as it goes.

    Attended the NC rally, hands down the “Diamond and Silk” act was obnoxious and stupid. Sounded like nails on a chalk board and didn’t appease educated people…..I wasn’t the only one in the crowd who didn’t like the repulsive duo. Campaign coordinators need to do a better job screening people who ask Trump questions . Left this rally feeling like I was among people with an IQ of 30.

    • intellectone

      You did not like the duo’s act because you are a racist.

    • nobody

      Educated people, at a Trump rally? Hah!

  • Richard Mongello

    The democrats have done more to harm black Americans in the last 7 years than in the last 70. I think they are finally waking up to the extent that they have been had. Ignored since Eisenhower was in office. Pandered to for votes until 2009 and than kicked to the curb in favor of the mass of illegal latino’s since. Black Americans may never get back to where they were before obama.

  • Alec Markov

    Does that mean that you won’t read the views of those who might happen to be “liberal.”? if all you read are the views of people who think exactly as you do, then how will you ever learn anything new or really understand the views of people that differ from yours?

    • nobody

      Learning, from them? Don’t you know that this is a dirty word, tabu, for them?

      • Alec Markov

        I didn’t think that people here were so adverse to considering other points of view, or so immature that an intelligent discourse would be impossible with them. Your comment is the first one I have received that is not sophomoric, obscene or simply angry and bitter. Let me hear from you again, if possible. I’d like to think that it wasn’t a complete waste of time to post things here.

  • Manny S

    This puts a smile in my face.

    Donald J Trump………President

  • sheepeater777

    Diamond and Silk 4eva!!

    true patriots.

  • Edmund Burke

    The Le Pen family in France and Le Donald here in the states. Interesting that many French voters tend to gravitate towards the candidate that the media disparages. Hmmmm, sounds like media somewhere else. Go Trump!

    • JWInGermany

      You gave me goosebumps with your direct hit! This is a Western problem…not just an American problem. I am an American living in Germany for nearly 30 years. You understand it! It does not matter which country or language in the West…the Alinsky, Cloward and Piven tactics are identical. This is not a conspiracy theory…but, it is a conspiracy. Please, concentrate on that theme when commenting to others. You are not alone! Go Trump!

    Love these ladies! Not only are they fun; but they chose a great leader to support.

  • paulytical

    It’s wonderful to see Diamond & Silk and their obviously sincere enthusiasm! I’ve been a fan since last Summer, when my long-time Bush-hating democrat friend told me that he wanted to vote for Trump, too. We both laughed a lot at D&S, but loved what they said, and we want to see the Trump Bull in the Washington D.C. china shop. It’s good to see these women excited about something I believe in, too. I’m ready to shake up the system! Only Trump can do that.
