Diamond and Silk, two of the most famous surrogates for President Trump, told the “Todd Starnes Radio Show” Monday that there have been a lot of bogus rumors swirling around about them in the media and promised to set the record straight in an upcoming book.
The Daily Beast reported that the duo had contributed weekly videos to Fox Nation, the streaming service Fox News, which stopped running their content in April after remarks on the coronavirus. The two reportedly theorized that the virus was “engineered’ with a “little deep-state action.”
The sisters, Ineitha Lynnette Hardaway and Herneitha Rochelle Richardson, reportedly took to Twitter shortly after reports emerged of their ouster and wrote, “Haters keep saying they hate Diamond and Silk, but you can’t hate what you ain’t never loved.”

Fox News has not commented on their status within the company, according to Politico. The duo apparently still has Trump’s support after he retweeted their message and wrote, “But I love Diamond & Silk and so do millions of people!”
Starnes, the radio show’s host, told the duo that he can relate to their situation. He said he’s from the South and said there’s an incorrect assumption that everybody in the “conservative media world” is conservative.
“That’s not necessarily the case,” Starnes said. “And, so, it’s good to know who your friends are.”
The duo compared the conservative media landscape to a battlefield. They said you notice who is defending you and “who ordered the hit.”
“See, everything is orchestrated and manufactured, you have to understand that,” they said. The hole that the media tried to dig for Trump—and them—will be the hole they [the media] fall in to. The two did not mention Fox News by name.
The Washington Times reported last year that the two signed a “major book deal” with a New York-based literary agent that represents Trump. The book is expected to be released in August.
“You don’t respond when people throw out allegations and accusations,” they said. They claimed that their words have been taken out of context and referred listeners to visit DiamondandSilkBook.com.
“Let me say, Diamond and Silk is not going anywhere, y’all,” they said.
