Jordan Klepper and Niccole Thurman introduce non-Fox News viewers to Diamond and Silk
"If last week, you were in some sort of hostage situation, eyes pried open, forced to watch the democratic process on C-SPAN," you'd have noticed that "during the Capitol Hill Facebook hearings, two names kept popping up," Jordan Klepper said on Wednesday's The Opposition. "Yes, Diamond and Silk got mentioned a lot last week as examples of conservative speech getting silenced. But who are these two?" To answer that question, Klepper brought on "Diamond and Silk super-fan Niccole Thurman," who ran through the sisters' story from Democrats with very few YouTube viewers to pro-Trump superstars.
After their first pro-Trump video went viral, "just like millions of poor white people and 22 black people, they got on board the Trump Train and started making videos defending him," Thurman said. She played examples of their work, showed how they rose up the ladder at Fox News, and threw plenty of shade. "No wonder why Fox loves them so much! They are like the hot sauce at the all-mayonnaise Fox barbecue." Klepper saw the appeal. "You know, with so many people yelling about race stuff in America right now, it's very comforting for me to know the biological sisters are on my side," he said. Watch below. Peter Weber
