I was surprised the crowd at the service (local news say it was about 150 people) didn't begin loudly booing her.
MAGA are only pro-police when it's convenient.

I'm sure now the CTs that she secretly took the vaccine, etc. will start popping up.
Comorbidities can become fatal if a sneaky Covid virus gets on board. While vaccines prevent most serious illnesses, those with comorbidities still could be hospitalized with what seems like a flair up of their other diseases aggravated by even mild Covid. Colon Powell, despite his vaccinated status, died of Covid because he was undergoing cancer treatment.

What Diamond died of was in fact heart disease, given a tiny or not so tiny push by a certain little Corona virus. Even after Covid leaves the system, those with comorbidities will remain at risk for almost two years.

Colin Powell.

When he died, four out of 5 living presidents or ex presidents issued statements calling Powell an American hero.

One out of 5 living presidents or ex presidents released a statement saying "He made plenty of mistakes, but may he rest in peace" and referred to him as a "classic RINO".

You get one guess as to who.

Trump probably has mild to moderate dementia, and not just forgetfulness, as is the case with Biden. Trump forgets a lot of vital things.

I don't see any evidence of dementia in either. I see the normal memory decline associated with their ages. Trump's problem is not dementia; it's narcissistic personality disorder.

Forgets implies that the took the information onboard in the first place. Given his poor attention, unless it was specifically about him, I have no problem believing that he didn't even notice the vital things when they were presented to him

How did Lynnette ("Diamond") and Rochelle Hardaway ("Silk") evolve into right-wing celebrities? As has been noted, their parents, Freeman and Betty Hardaway, were televangelists based in Fayetteville, No. Car. The parents are known for selling weight-loss cures and wreaths to ward off witchcraft. If people paid fifty dollars, Betty Hardaway would write their names in a Bible, supposedly ensuring God would answer the payee's prayers

News sources report Lynette and Rochelle Hardaway began to be noticed in 2012 when they began recording and uploading Youtube videos. Their first vids were about police brutality directed against Blacks. In 2015 they switched over to being virulently pro-trump. A significant development apparently came that same year when a right-wing political consultant and video producer named Dennis Michael Lynch contacted them and offered to help them produce 'viral' political videos.

But how about before? At the time they first started uploading videos to Youtube both women were in their early 40s. What did they do before that? There doesn't seem to be much information out there.

So you want to ask, what made these women worth listening to? What was their life experience that made them so wise and all-knowing? How do they have any credibility? The answer is, they weren't worth listening to and they have zero credibility.

It is astounding the cast of characters the right-wing has unleashed on the American public.

Please don't post any more pictures of them, especially when I'm trying to eat lunch.

They were worth listening to because they gave the MAGA crowd what they wanted: extreme right-wing rhetoric supporting their Chosen One while demonizing anything and everything related to Trump's opposition. They focused on the grievances so dear to MAGA hearts. But being Black and attacking Obama while supporting Trump was the icing on the cake for the MAGA crowd.

I wonder what it's like to have no dignity and self-respect. If I ever meet these sort of people, I'll have to ask them.

They'll just point a finger at you and say, "Self-respect isn't given, it has to be earned."

It may have been the reason why Trump claimed that he didn't know her.
