The things you discover on Twitter….
President Trump’s self-proclaimed strongest supporters Diamond & Silk will be coming to Irvine on September 21 at the Irvine Spectrum Marriott. It’s a pricy ticket — $90 to $200 — so there’s a part of me that wants to know if Trump’s two biggest elected supporters — Assemblyman Steven Choi and Irvine Mayor Christina Shea — will attend.
It wouldn’t surprise me if Shea gives them the Key to the City.
Here are the details:

The pair are YouTube stars and they monetize their videos to make money while parroting Trump’s harmful rhetoric. So the more views they get, the more dough they make.
I found this blog that gets into what Diamond & Silk are really about and the author is a part of a four person staff of people who are African-American. Here’s an excerpt:
But Donald Trump has convinced his mindless conservative minions that it’s wrong and unpatriotic to exercise the rights guaranteed under the Constitution – it’s fine to brag about them, but it’s grossly disrespectful to actually act upon them – and his mindless minions obediently follow his lead. But the fact is, those who follow Draft-Dodging Donnie and who are jumping up and down about patriotism and how the flag is being disrespected, these are the people who are actually disrespecting our flag and the troops, not Colin Kaepernick.
These two Black women are desperate to be embraced by the very White people who view them as useful idiots at best, and Aunt Jemima-like clowns at worse. But they’re willing to accept that, because people like themselves have no self-respect, or respect for their people – in fact, in many cases they’re even racist ‘Bligots’ themselves. Ignorant Black people like these put Black children at risk by helping to validate a philosophy that considers it perfectly routine to shoot Black people down in the street like dogs, and then praise the murderous cop for performing a public service.
