They’re President Trump’s #1 fans and they’ve been with him from the start of his campaign. The wildly popular, hilarious and outspoken duo have been hitting it out of the park on YouTube with their videos that rely entirely on pro-Trump commentary. They never use vulgarity or threats and their videos are always G-rated (Well, okay, a few of their videos may be PG-13). Apparently supporting the President of the United States now violates YouTube’s monetization policies…
Lynnette Hardway and Rochelle Richardson of North Carolina, whose support of Mr. Trump and no-nonsense delivery during the 2016 U.S. presidential season turned them into online sensations, said Thursday their YouTube videos have become casualties of the company’s attempt to silence “extremism.”

Here’s an example of the hilarious commentary by Diamond and Silk who are voracious defenders of Donald Trump. Watch as they hammer Megyn Kelly for her demonization of then candidate Trump:
