Popular YouTube personalities and avid Donald Trump fans Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, better known as Diamond and Silk, have a message for US President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry: “We stand with Israel!”
The two former Democrats, who rose to prominence as devoted — and flamboyant — Trump backers throughout the campaign, posted a new clip Thursday in which they lambasted the White House for its recent conflict with Israel over West Bank policy and for failing to veto the UN resolution criticizing settlements.
“I know that something went down with Israel because I saw Kerry on TV talking about them,” Hardaway announces, with Richardson murmuring and humming in agreement throughout her short speech. “Now I’m not quite sure as to what went down, but I do know that Kerry must be slipping in all of that Heinz ketchup, cuz he trippin’!”
Hardaway then grows more flustered: “Let me tell you something: Israel is our ally, so that means we have to have their backs! I don’t care if their back is small, and our backs our big, we still got to have their backs — period.”
As for Obama, he “looks like he might be out of touch. He was out of touch with this election. He was out of touch with the American people. And now he is out of touch with Israel,” she says.
“And if he’s not careful, somebody will end up stabbing Israel in the back,” she cries, as Richardson animatedly demonstrates the knife-to-back action. “And we can’t let that happen!”
In conclusion, they state together: “Guess what — we stand with Israel! We will always have their back!”
A load off the mind of Israel’s leaders, to be sure.
