Donald Trump: 'Diamond and Silk Are Warriors'

YouTube personalities Diamond and Silk- Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson- appear in a 2015 video posted to YouTube

The pair Thursday morning testified to Congress about what they claim is censorship by Facebook of conservative voices.

Rep. Jerry Nadler, the top ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, called the hearing with the two social media stars is a "spectacle" that shouldn't be taking place when the committee should be investigating more important issues. It is wrong for these social media giants to suppress and disregard people by diminishing and denying them their free speech.

When Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, known more commonly by their internet monickers of "Diamond and Silk", affirmed that Jeffries' recollection was correct, the congressman offered another question: "Are you aware that your testimony today is under oath subject to the penalty of perjury?"

As ThinkProgress previously reported, the claim that Diamond and Silk were "censored" or "blocked" on Facebook is false.

When pressed about the payments by Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, the two accused the lawmaker of falling for "fake news" and floated the suggestion that they had instead been reimbursed for travel expenses.

"Followers stopped receiving notifications when we posted videos and content, followers was also mysteriously unliked from our page", Diamond said.

The self-proclaimed "most outspoken and loyal" Trump supporters have gained an online following for their debriefs on politics, the Trump administration and news of the day on their Youtube channel and on Facebook and Twitter.

"We have never been paid", Hardaway replied.

Despite the presidential praise, Diamond and Silk's foray into viral political videos has been a challenging one, they said.

Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, read a message from one of his constituents in one of those hearings, saying, "Why is Facebook censoring conservative bloggers such as Diamond and Silk?"

In his own congressional hearings earlier this month, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg apologized for that incident and said Banning Diamond and Silk was an "enforcement error." . They said the platform does not give the option to change the label.

Just when we thought President Donald Trump's coon parade couldn't do any more damage, YouTube Cheeto Chump shoe-shiners Diamond and Silk chose to ask Kanye West and CyHi The Pyrnce to hold their beers and wigs. Facebook called them "unsafe" to the community.
