FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA: The memorial service for Diamond, whose legal name was Ineitha Lynnette Hardaway of the political vlogging duo Diamond and Silk on Saturday, January 21, saw Donald Trump joining the family to honor the conservative activist. There were over 150 attendees receiving patriotic programs bearing Diamond’s portrait, who died on January 8 at age 51, and a list of “Diamondisms” bearing some of her most famous catchphrases, such as “Don’t get it twisted” and “Dump the rest of those chumps and vote for Donald J Trump.”

The slamming continued with one writing, "He will simply ask his disciples to cover the cost of all expenses and then make it look as he personally paid for it. Don the Con is in effect." An individual said, "She'll be left with the bill like every other event he's done." While one said, "It's more likely that he will sue Silk into bankruptcy if she dares to attempt to collect on his empty promises."
