Former President Donald Trump will attend a memorial service for Lynette Hardaway, known by conservatives as “Diamond” from “Diamond and Silk.” Hardaway’s death was announced last week. She was 51.
Lara Trump, the former president’s daughter-in-law, announced on the Todd Starnes Show that a memorial service has been set for Saturday in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
“My father in law is attending,” Trump said. “I’m attending. I think our whole family is planning to go because she was near and dear to all of our hearts. And obviously she will be very, very missed by her friends and family. But I think patriots all across this country because she believed so much in America and wanted to do everything she could to fight for it.”
STARNES: [00:12:20] Yeah, it’s all too convenient. And we all know how politics goes. Lara, before we let you go, we lost a dear friend, Lynnette Hardaway. She was a regular back in the day on this program known as Diamond of the Diamond and Silk duo. I know you guys were incredibly close traveling all over the place together. [00:12:39][18.2]
TRUMP: [00:12:40] Oh, yeah, we were, what a heartbreaking loss! Diamond and Silk came to the baby shower for both of my kids. They became very good friends of mine. And, yeah, we traveled together on a bus throughout the country. So you can only imagine the laughs and the great times that we had. But heartbreaking news last week, obviously, to hear that diamond, as she was better known, Lynnette passed away. There’s going to be a memorial for her this Saturday in Fayetteville, North Carolina, which is her hometown. My father in law is attending. I’m attending. I think our whole family is planning to go because she was near and dear to all of our hearts. And obviously she will be very, very missed by her friends and family. But I think patriots all across this country because she believed so much in America and wanted to do everything she could to fight for it. [00:13:32][52.1]

STARNES: [00:13:32] She was a great lady and we connected right away when I was back at Fox because, of course, they’re from the Carolinas, I’m from Tennessee. So we inevitably always started talking about food, whatever they were on the show, and they never would tell me what was in those, you know, in the early days they would drink out of the wine glass. Remember, they used to have the wine glasses. I said, what do y’all drink? They never would say. They never would say. [00:13:56][23.8]
TRUMP: [00:13:57] Oh, interesting. Maybe we’ll never know. Todd. [00:13:59][2.1]
STARNES: [00:13:59] I don’t think it was cranapple, but it was a lot of fun, nevertheless. All right, well, Lara, we appreciate that update and a lot of our audience praying for a Diamond and Silk and the family there. And we appreciate having you back on the show. Look forward to talking to you down the road. [00:14:14][14.3]
