Donald Trump Spoils Eulogy For Supporter Diamond With Odd Remark About Her Sister


Former President Donald Trump awkwardly claimed he "didn't know" Silk, one half of the popular conservative duo Diamond & Silk, during a speech at her late sister Diamond's memorial service on Saturday.

Lynette "Diamond" Hardaway, who popularly backed Trump along with her sister, died earlier this month at the age of 51 in what the former president described as a "totally" unexpected occurrence.

Trump made an appearance at the North Carolina service where - in addition to reflections on Diamond - he railed about inflation and gas prices as he listed a string of political grievances.

The former president, who visited with the duo in the White House and looped theminto rallies in the past, referred to Diamond as one of the world's "brightest stars" before making an odd remark about her sister.

"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," Trump said.

Trump later spoke about the crowd at the memorial service before he used his time on stage to dive into how planning went for the event.

"The chapel wouldn't have held the kind of people, the number of people that we have," Trump said.

"And we're doing it right and that's the way it should be and I did notice a big line of very, very nice vehicles outside. That's got to be handled properly, right? So we're going to handle it properly. Go out in style. She knew that. Go out in style."

Trump also went on about the length of the three-hour-plus service, which he said was a "little longer than 15 minutes."
