Diamond and Silk, pro-Trump internet personalities, take center stage at Facebook hearing

Mark Zuckerberg wrapped his second day of congressional testimony to address Facebook privacy concerns, and the CEO faced tough questions about a pair of Trump-loving sisters. Diamond and Silk, otherwise known as sisters Lynette Hardaway (Diamond) and Rochelle Richardson (Silk), of Fayetteville, N.C., have gained an obsessive following for their pro-Trump views on immigration, border security, and the economy. “First of all, if y’all haven’t noticed: We black. … And just because we black, we found out, that doesn’t mean we have to vote Democrat,” Diamond said in 2016, according to Rolling Stone. The sisters are former Democrats who joined the Republican Party when Trump declared his presidential campaign in 2015. The pair has appeared onstage at Trump rallies.
