Diamond & Silk: 'Shame on Maxine Waters' for Skipping SOTU, Bashing Trump
Social media stars Lynnette "Diamond" Hardaway and Rochelle "Silk" Richardson blasted Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) for skipping President Donald Trump's State of the Union address.
Waters, who was one of several prominent Democrats to boycott the event, said Trump is a "racist" who doesn't deserve her attention.
After Trump's speech, Waters delivered a prerecorded response and called for a parental advisory each time the president appears on television.
Waters also described Trump as a “terrible role model for our children,” calling him "dangerous, unprincipled, divisive and shameful."
On "Watters' World," Hardaway and Richardson slammed the California Democrat for her divisive rhetoric.
Hardaway said Waters has an obligation to represent the people of her district, but she's too busy railing against Trump.
She pointed out that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) attended the State of the Union even though he was shot and nearly killed less than nine months ago when a gunman opened fire on a congressional baseball practice.
"He took a bullet, he bounced back and he was able to stand there to represent his district," Hardaway said. "Shame on Maxine Waters! Nothing is wrong with you, but you [weren't] even there for the people you're supposed to represent."
She said Waters is more interested in representing her own agenda and bashing Trump.
"And then I heard that she mentioned something about censoring our president. She needs to be censored. We need to put a message up there to vote her out. Because why is she in office? She's doing nothing for her district."
