Congressman John Lewis, the respected civil rights pioneer, is "dead wrong" about President-elect Donald Trump, according to YouTube stars "Diamond" and "Silk."
North Carolina sisters Lynette "Diamond" Hardaway and Rochelle "Silk" Richardson," perhaps the most loyal fans of the PEOTUS on social media, have also appeared at several campaign rallies and made numerous cable news channel appearances as advocates for Trump.
In an interview on NBC Meet the Press, Rep. Lewis claimed that Trump is not a legitimate president and that Russia helped sabotage the Hillary Clinton campaign. Trump fired back on Twitter, accusing Lewis, a Democrat who has represented Georgia's 5th Congressional District in the Atlanta area since 1987, as another all-talk, no-action politician, one of Trump's familiar refrains from the campaign about lawmakers from both parties. The tweet ignited yet another controversy.
Diamond and Silk emerged in a big way on social media after they cut a feisty viral video blasting former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly for, in their view, trying to destroy Donald Trump's presidential campaign by accusing him of misogyny during the August 2015 GOP debate. Kelly should instead report news for Sesame Street, they quipped in the video uploaded the day after the August 6 Republican candidate forum that was seen by a record-setting 24 million cable viewers. "Leave Donald Trump the hell alone; if you've got something to say, run it by us first," the sisters satirically demanded of Megyn Kelly.
On their YouTube channel which gained a lot of traction after the Kelly video, Diamond and Silk also promoted an effort encouraging Democrats like themselves to "ditch and switch," i.e, change parties (in those states where it was necessary) to vote for Trump in the primary and obviously in the general election.
