The social media duo Lynnette “Diamond” Hardaway and Rochelle “Silk” Richardson appeared on “Fox & Friends” were they accused Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg of paying off Democrats who questioned them about the Trump campaign’s FEC filings (see below) that cited they were paid $1,274.94 for “field consulting.”
They also claimed the $1,274.94 was for a flight reimbursement, which is not what the Trump campaign said on its filing.
Hardaway said she was “appalled” to be questioned (by Democratic Reps. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas and Hakeem Jeffries of New York) about the payment:
What I was appalled and what we were offended by was you have these representatives sitting there as if we had no merit and no claim, and they were being very dismissive. My thing is, I thought they worked for the American people.
Why are you questioning me about a FEC report? How much money did Mark Zuckerberg allegedly pay you all? Why are you questioning us about that and not questioning us about how we were censored?
Hardaway also took some shots at immigrants who were granted DACA status:
I felt offended as an American, born on this soil, that first black people, that don’t want us to obtain the American dream and, second, they dismissed our claim, yes, a DACA person can go up there that’s not even born on this soil and they listen all day. So I don’t understand that. But, listen, we’re not going to be silenced.
“No, we’re not,” Richardson agreed.
They continued to rant about the “Democratic plantation” and insisting they deserved an opportunity to make money “legally.”
