President Trump announced to the nation tonight that Lynette Hardaway, known by conservatives as ‘Diamond’ of ‘Diamond and Silk,’ had passed away.
He memorialized the beloved conservative icon on Truth Social.
Really bad news for Republicans and frankly, ALL Americans. Our beautiful Diamond, of Diamond and Silk, has just passed away at her home in the State she loved so much, North Carolina.
Silk was with her all the way, and at her passing. There was no better TEAM anywhere, or at any time! Diamond’s death was totally unexpected, probably her big and precious HEART just plain gave out. Rest In Peace our Magnificent Diamond, you will be greatly missed!President Trump
Diamond, and her sister, Rochelle Richardson, earned national acclaim for their unwavering support of the former president and their ability to trigger liberals from coast to coast.
Hardaway’s cause of death has not been revealed, but weeks ago the family posted an urgent call for prayer on social media.
Newsmax Media CEO Christopher Ruddy previously hailed the pair as “the cutting edge of political opinion on cable news today — honest, patriotic, sometimes controversial and always entertaining.”
Diamond was a regular on my national radio show for a number of years and we shared many laughs recounting our mutual Southern upbringing.
Tonight, the state of North Carolina, the MAGA movement and the nation mourn her passing.
