President Donald Trump got some assistance from the social media stars Diamond & Silk after he was attacked by rapper Jay-Z. Among other things, he called Trump a “superbug” after Trump’s alleged remarks about Haiti and some African countries.
From Fox News Insider:
“Everyone feels anger, but after the anger, it’s really hurtful looking down on a whole population of people,” the rapper, born Sean Carter, told CNN’s Van Jones.
“As those things grow, you create a super bug, and now we have Donald Trump the super bug,” Jay-Z said of his fellow New York City native.
Trump responded to his jibe noting that perhaps Jay-Z had missed that under Trump, black unemployment was at historic lows, the lowest in 45 years.
And indeed, the Bureau of Labor Statistics back him up, declaring that the rate is 6.8 percent, the lowest in 45 years.
But Jay-Z scoffed at that response.
From Daily Caller:
Jay-Z told CNN in a new interview that lower unemployment for the country’s African-American population is not enough, when people in power are still mistreating minorities and others.
“It’s not about money at the end of the day,” he said in the interview. “Money doesn’t equate to happiness. It doesn’t. That’s missing the whole point. You treat people like human beings. That’s the main point.”
Lynnette “Diamond” Hardaway and Rochelle “Silk” Richardson appeared on “Fox & Friends” and defended Trump.
They pointed out that Jay-Z rap songs are infamous for using derogatory terms for women and said he needed to treat Trump with respect.
From Fox News Insider:
“He’s made money off of doing that… What’s wrong with Jay-Z is he’s just mad his influence did not influence people to go out and vote for Crooked Hillary [Clinton].”
Silk told Jay-Z to “stop crying like a baby.”
“Trump is your president,” she said.
Hardaway said that people were really starting to “thrive again” in this country.

She proposed that if, as Carter said, money is really meaningless, maybe he should give his wealth to people in poor neighborhoods who really need it.
“I’ll tell you what: if money don’t mean nothing, give your money away,” Hardaway stated. “Go down to Skid Row in California and give the people all your money so they can have a place and then you tell me how that’s working out for you.”
Richardson then chimed in, suggesting that maybe Carter shouldn’t charge any money for his performances.
