Watch 2 pro-Trump vloggers turn a congressional hearing into a shouting match

If you didn't learn Diamond and Silk's names from Mark Zuckerberg's congressional hearing earlier this month, their own testimony on Capitol Hill might catch you up to speed.

The Trump-supporting vlog duo testified before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday after alleging their conservative content was censored on social media. Their testimony was quite combative — here are three of the wildest moments from the hearing. Kathryn Krawczyk

1. Democratic Rep. Hank Johnson (Ga.) asked why Diamond and Silk were "bashing" Facebook even after they profited from its ads. Lynette "Diamond" Hardaway said that Facebook had stopped the pair from monetizing videos for "six months, 29 days, five hours, 43 minutes, and 40 seconds."

When a remarkably calm Johnson countered that diamonds are "a girl's best friend," Hardaway added: "And they're hard too. And if I have to be hard and be firm with you, I will."

2. When the duo confirmed they were "not paid by the Trump campaign," Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.) asked about a $1,274.94 payment from the campaign to Diamond and Silk for "field consulting." "We are familiar with that particular lie," Rochelle "Silk" Richardson said. "We can see that you do look at fake news."

3. Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu (Calif.) got right to the point. "This is a stupid and ridiculous hearing," he said. "The only reason I'm still here is I want to enter some facts into the record to at least try to salvage some of this hearing."
