Diamond and Silk on national news

Diamond and Silk, the black sisters from North Carolina who who stump for Donald Trump, are interviewed by Yahoo News.

We’ve always been affiliated with the Democratic Party. But when Donald Trump announced his candidacy and we saw him on TV, we knew this is our guy, we’re going to vote for him. … I know he can lead, I know he can help the black community, I know he can bring jobs that will help black lives, so that’s why I’m stumping for Trump.

They are definitely all in for Donald Trump.

Even bigger more significant appearance on CNN, intervieded by Don Lemon.

  1. They are definitely all in for Donald Trump.

    I think they are all in for themselves and are marketing themselves off Trump.

    They basically stuck their bumper sticker on Trump’s helicopter.

    • What do you call a black person at a conservative conference?

      Keynote speaker.

  5. They are funny, but now imagine a character like this on the opposite side, which is where they usually are, or on a jury panel going for ‘Not guilty’ verdict? Imagined? Good, because this is exactly whom I had to deal with when I was a juror. Having said that, I enjoy their performance. I like how they don’t let the interviewer to sidetrack them and just go on stumping for their man Donald Trump, lol. Also, notice how they pretend to be more stupid than they realy are, like how they struggle reading a text, first class entertainment for me.

  6. I know he can bring jobs that will help black lives

    Since Trump is the only candidate that wants to limit legal and illegal immigration, then this is absolutely true. Wages and employment prospects for blacks, especially lower and working class blacks, will improve under a Trump presidency.

    • Yeah but if Trump were a great president he’d outlaw affirmative action, banish dysfunctional blacks to remote high rise residential complexes, increase policing of black areas, and force government aid recipients to not have children. So a great Trump presidency would probably be more or less a wash for Blacks.

    • I live in Maryland, where hotels and restaurants on the Eastern Shore get staff from Eastern Europe while the black unemployment rate is sky-high in Baltimore.

      At Six Flags when I was in high school the owners would bring in two bus loads of EEs everyday. We American teenage workers never learned where they actually lived. They just showed up at 8:30am, then left 12 hours later.

  7. Good for them. I think they’re sincere, which doesn’t mean they can’t also exploit this for their own good. More power to them, I say.

    Blacks are very emotionally led and fad-happy, and social proof is important. If they see these sassy ladies being upfront for Trump, it can definitely help sway other blacks. In fact, if we ended up with Trump vs. Hillary I seriously think you could see a significant black realignment, at least for this election cycle. Blacks have much more respect for Trump from the get-go because he’s a baller. When Hillary trots out that fake black voice she trots out sometimes that will only get laffs. Whatever Trump’s flaws may be, I don’t think he comes off as condescending. He can be “mean” and blunt, but he doesn’t seem to patronize blacks the way Hillary and most white Dems do. Because Trump has no false ideas about blacks; he knows just what they are. Remember, unlike the Dems and their lilly-white staffs, Trump probably employs thousands of blacks across his organizations and probably interacts with them on a regular basis.

    If he keeps focusing on blacks losing jobs to immigrants, he might very well win the majority of the nice black lady vote. And the nice black lady vote is probably most of the black vote that actually shows up.

  8. Immigration is the only issue that can pry blacks away from the Democrats. As Sailer has pointed out repeatedly Hispanics just don’t matter because their votes are in non-competitive states, and they have relatively low turn-out.

    So if there’s lower black turn-out, and/or more blacks going for Trump, then he ***will*** win the election.

    Even if Trump loses he can change elections for the next 2 generations. More “un-PC” candidates will run with an unorthodox mix of positions (right-wing on immigration, but pro basic income for example). So there’s hope for HBD going (publicly) mainstream.

    • Win or lose, Trump may have actually changed politics permanently. With his economic nationalism platform, the US is finally joining Europe the rise of anti immigration,, nationalist parties like UKIP. The Tea Party had nothing to do with the rise of the right in Europe and was an American one off. But Trump is crafting a UKIP equivalent in the US.
