Diamond and Silk, two prominent pundits and surrogates for Donald J. Trump, got their start in North Carolina in late 2016 with the encouragement of early North Carolina and Virginia activists who gathered around Trump’s presidential candidacy and devised strategies to reach out to American voters and convince them to consider him as a viable candidate for president. Numerous activist organizations anticipated that the two sisters would deliver a powerful message to women and African-American voters.
In the beginning, groups of women affiliated with VA Women for Trump had informal events and organized organic support for the candidate they felt would win. The Hardaway sisters, whose true last name was Hardaway, had such a contagious connection with each other and were so amusing that some who knew them anticipated their audience would rise rapidly and be highly favorable for Trump’s election.
Table Talk, the duo’s internet films, went viral instantaneously, and by November 7th, 2016, for Trump’s first North Carolina event in Raleigh, North Carolina, they had built a local audience in the state and were being promoted by a handful of grassroots activists connected to the Trump campaign.
The NC State director for the Trump campaign, Earl Phillips, told Republic Brief that Diamond and Silk had called him and asked if they might attend the rally he had scheduled. He agreed and arranged their meeting.
The ‘Deplorable Movement’ was born when the sisters made their debut appearance with Trump at that first event, when they were warmly embraced by thousands of people who were not usual political rally goers.
Diamond and Silk were not simply formidable surrogates for African-Americans and women, but also for many Americans searching for something new in politics.
It was stated with great grief that Diamond had gone away in January; however, the circumstances surrounding her passing were not disclosed until just recently.
This past weekend, a memorial ceremony for Hardway was conducted in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The American News Wire Service provided the following information about his passing:
Herneitha “Silk” Rochelle Hardaway, sister of Ineitha Lynnette Hardaway, better known as “Diamond” from the conservative duet Diamond and Silk, stated on Saturday that she, too, should be included to the list of individuals who “died suddenly” and cautioned, “Something ain’t right.”
The 51-year-old pro-MAGA Hardaway was honored at a memorial service in Fayetteville, North Carolina, at which former President Donald Trump was a guest of honor. Silk described the closing moments of her sister’s life without assigning blame: “It was sudden, out of nowhere, and no warning” when Diamond informed her, “I can’t breathe.”
“My husband and I followed the 911 instructions,” she explained of efforts to perform CPR until emergency services arrived who then “did everything that they could. So what I want to say to everybody is don’t you dare call me a conspiracy theorist because I saw it happen. I saw how it happened. I was there when it happened. And it happened suddenly.”
