Diamond and Silk, also known as Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, who form a pair of video blog personalities who appear regularly on YouTube, were on Fox News to express their "irritation" over the failure by Congress to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, a/k/a Obamacare. Diamond said, "People are hurting. People have a card and no care."

The pair of sisters became wildly popular among President Donald Trump's supporters during the 2016 presidential campaign. They North Carolina sisters continue to support Trump while frequently disparaging his opponents. On "Fox & Friends" on August 4 they wondered out loud whether members of Congress are receiving "kickbacks" for their failure to enact health care reform. "Somebody may be getting a kickback paddy-wack give-a-dog-a-bone," Diamond suggested.

Diamond said, "They're working for their own greed." She added that it is "sad" that some Republicans appear unready to cooperate with Trump. Diamond suggested that it is time to "repeal and replace" the senators who recently voted against the Republican health care bill.

Fox News host Steve Doocy asked the pair of women about what they think about the current investigation into supposed ties between Russia and the Trump campaign. “Our president is about to be railroaded,” Diamond said. She said Americans care about ‘jobs, jobs, jobs,” not “Russia, Russia, Russia.”

 

Elsewhere, on "Hannity," Diamond and Silk claimed that Obama is "built on a lie." Diamond said on August 2, "To all of these politicians that voted no to repeal and replace: maybe it's time for the American people to repeal and replace you." As for Silk, she said that Trump is still "doing a phenomenal job" despite the stalemate in Congress over health care reform. 

On "Hannity,"  Diamond and Silk slammed what they called "media bias, political babble, and repetitive political tactics that they feel the average American is tired of being subjected to."
