Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, aka, Diamond and Silk, say accusations of racism against Trump are more #FakeNews…. and their “logic” is, um, interesting.
Trump told four progressive congresswomen of color to “go back” to where they came from. Many of Trump’s defenders later said he wasn’t being racist, he was just critiquing the alleged anti-American sentiment of
On their official Twitter account Diamond & Silk retweeted a video showing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying that “by its definition,” Trump’s words “are racist.”
Pelosi says in the video,
“If you look in the [Associated Press] and other places where they define certain words, that’s what that is. But we weren’t saying that [Trump] was racist, we’re saying that the words that he used were racist.”
But Diamond and Silk SO disagree. After all, if racist words can be found in the dictionary, does that mean the dictionary is racist?
Swear to the goddess, the pair tweeted,
“Nancy Pelosi said the WORDS that the President used were racist. But those same words are in the Dictionary. Does that mean that the Dictionary is now racist? Should all Dictionaries be banned since Democrats are offended by words?”
In the comment thread that came under this nonsense, most people were just baffled…
“This. This is the standard,” @snarksation replied. “You have to be this ‘smart’ to be a Trump supporter.”
“There it is. The stupidest fucking thing I’ll read all day,” @bjcreigh wrote. “And future days will be hard pressed to compete.”
“The word edible is in the dictionary,” @realbillm pointed out. “Does that mean the dictionary is edible? God, I hope so, I’m hungry.”
