Social media personalities “Diamond and Silk” mocked New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on “Fox & Friends” Friday for calling himself an undocumented citizen.
“If he is undocumented maybe I should go pay him a visit,” Lynnette Hardaway, who goes by “Diamond,” said. “Maybe go ahead on and deport him.”
The Fox News guests thought it was shameful of Cuomo, a Democrat, to try to incite rage among illegal immigrants and said he should tell them the truth.
“The fact that he lied and he takes and tries to use this here to incite some kind or rage or outrage is just unreal to us,” Hardaway continued. “When you come in this country you must be legal.”
“If he really cared about illegal aliens he would tell them that, instead of continuing with this rhetoric that they are supposed to be here if they are not legal,” she said. “When you come in here, you must be legal is what needs to happen.”
Cuomo was criticized in December for pardoning 18 convicted illegal immigrants who were facing deportation. He later praised himself for the pardon on Twitter.
