Donald Trump super fans Diamond and Silk suggest that Sen. [crscore]Marco Rubio[/crscore] “owes America and the gay community an apology because it sounds like that he may have had a gay lifestyle in his past.”
In an interview on “CNN Newsroom With Carol Costello” on Friday, Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway and Rochelle “Silk” Richardson — a.k.a. the “Stump for Trump” girls — made the allegation in an attempt to defend Trump from Rubio’s criticism about Trump’s business practices.
Costello said, “I want to show that video once again of [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] and Senator Marco Rubio shaking hands behind Donald Trump’s back during a commercial break. So, Lynnette [Diamond], when you see that, what goes through your mind?”
Diamond replied, “Well, you know, I think that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, they’re both snakes.”
Silk interjected, “That’s right.”
“When I look at Marco Rubio, Marco Rubio told us to Google Donald Trump, but I did one better. I Googled him. And when I Googled him, you know, he owes America and the gay community an apology because it sounds like that he may have had a gay lifestyle in his past,” Diamond claimed.
Shocked, Costello interjected, “What?”
Diamond continued, “He owes people an apology.”
“No, Lynnette [Diamond],” Costello said.
“All you have to do is Google him,” Diamonds said. Silk echoed, “Google.”
A disapproving Costello said, “Lynnette [Diamond]…”
[dcquiz] “Google him and you will see that that’s what’s on Google. So you have to be cautious when you tell people to Google people. Stuff will come up. Now, we don’t know if it’s true so we’ll say allegedly. But he shouldn’t have told people to Google Donald because I Googled him and stuff came up,” Diamond said.
During Thursday night’s debate, Rubio told the audience to Google “Donald Trump Polish Worker” and they would be shocked by what they found. Rubio claimed that Trump hired illegal workers “from Poland and he had to pay a million dollars or so in a judgment.” According to Politifact, Rubio’s claim was half true because “It was Trump’s contractor, not Trump himself, who hired 200 undocumented Polish workers to demolish a building to make room for Trump Tower in Manhattan. Trump said he didn’t know. The lawsuit sought $1 million in damages, and a judge ruled that Trump had to pay $325,000 plus interest.”
