At the recent “Tea for Trump” event in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the birthday of President Donald Trump, Diamond & Silk took the stage to bash the left-wing media and to give words of support to President Trump and U.S. Senate Candidate Corey Stewart.
Shortly after taking stage, Diamond, who spoke the most out of the pro-Trump duo, pointed out Corey Stewart who was in the crowd, telling him not to worry about the attacks he is facing, because “they (the media) only smear who they fear.” Then, shortly after encouraging those in attendance to vote for those who have Trump’s agenda at heart. Diamond also expressed her anger to a recent CNN interview that Stewart participated in with host Chris Cuomo.
After calling CNN “fake,” Diamond stated that she wanted to “jump through the TV and take over the interview.”
The interview itself was nothing more than a smear job where Cuomo spent the majority of it attacking the Virginia Senate candidate for his past, disavowed, ties to Paul Nehlen, who is vying for Paul Ryan’s U.S. House seat. In recent months, Nehlen, who was at one time a Trump-like candidate, went off the rails promoting racist and anti-Semitic policies and conspiracy theories. Once Nehlen went off the rails, Stewart distanced himself like dozens of other mainstream conservative figures.
Despite this, his campaign against fellow Republicans Nick Freitas and E.W. Jackson was centered around this connection. Many anti-Stewart Republicans used opposition research collected by the NeverTrump media outlet Daily Wire, which is run by Ben Shapiro, to smear Stewart.
Even with the claims of racism levied against Stewart, black Trump supporters like Diamond & Silk, and conservative commentator C.J. Pearson stood with Stewart.
It’s a shame to see old-guard conservatives malign this man just to preserve the status quo.
The swamp is scared…

After receiving the Republican nomination, President Donald Trump congratulated Stewart, stating that he shouldn’t be underestimated.
Congratulations to Corey Stewart for his great victory for Senator from Virginia. Now he runs against a total stiff, Tim Kaine, who is weak on crime and borders, and wants to raise your taxes through the roof. Don’t underestimate Corey, a major chance of winning!

Corey Stewart is by far the most Trump-like candidate running for U.S. Senate, and will almost certainly be the strongest ally to the President’s agenda if elected. He is running against Sen. Tim Kaine, who was Hillary Clinton’s running mate. Stewart has pledged to run a vicious campaign to defeat Kaine.
