Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway and Rochelle “Silk” Richardson — the rabid Donald Trump superfans who have come to be known as The “Stump For Trump” girls — have suggested that Senator Marco Rubio may have had a gay past.
While being interviewed on “CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello” on Friday, they claimed Rubio “owes America and the gay community an apology because it sounds like that he may have had a gay lifestyle in his past.”
They were trying to defend Trump from Rubio’s criticism about Trump’s business practices.
Costello said, “I want to show that video once again of Ted Cruz 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’s response: “Well, you know, I think that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, they’re both snakes.”
Silk: “That’s right.”
Diamond: “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.”
Costello was shocked. “What?”
Diamond: “He owes people an apology.”
Costello: “No, Lynnette [Diamond].”
Diamond: “All you have to do is Google him. 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.”
On Thursday during the debate, Rubio suggested that the audience Google “Donald Trump Polish Worker” and see what they found.
He insinuated that Trump had hired illegal workers “from Poland and he had to pay a million dollars or so in a judgment.”
