At a memorial service for Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway in North Carolina, former President Donald Trump spoke among Republicans, praising Diamond as one of the world’s “biggest stars.” However, he also mentioned that he did not have a personal relationship with Rochelle “Silk” Richardson, the other half of the conservative duo “Diamond and Silk.”
“The world has lost one of its brightest stars but I see that we have another star who was equal to but she stepped up and she is different,” Trump said. ‘I’m serious. I thought I knew them both, I didn’t, I knew Diamond, but I didn’t know Silk at all. I just learned about Silk. You’re fantastic, you’re going to carry on beyond, beyond anybody’s wildest imaginations.”
Richardson spoke before Trump and praised Trump’s relationship with her and her sister, claiming he treated them like his own children.
Hardaway died suddenly earlier this month.
