Diamond (Lynette Hardaway) and Silk (Rochelle Richardson), the cartoonish Fox News regulars, were fired from the network for repeating conspiracy theories about Covid. Unsurprisingly, Silk floated another one at her sister's memorial. It's important to note that Silk has not confirmed Diamond's cause of death. She's just skating around the subject. And she lies -- a lot.

Silk described her sister's final moments and suggested that she may have been poisoned while offering no evidence to back that up. Silk promoted the "died suddenly" conspiracy theory, but Diamond had been dying for months from something. Most people assume that she died from Covid. Her sister is not transparent about it, and she's still trying to keep that grift going.

She was sick for a while. Just ask Silk:

"Instead of asking if Americans are vaxxed or unvaxxed, the real question to ask is: Are Americans being poisoned?" Silk asked.

Things got a little weirder when former President Donald Trump took to Diamond's memorial's podium and denied having ever met Silk. There are numerous photos of the one-term president with Diamond and Silk, though.

"I knew Diamond, but I didn't know Silk at all," he said. "I just learned about Silk. You're fantastic."


'Me, me, me, me, me!'

We're not being poisoned, Silk. And yes, Donald, you met Silk many times. And the election wasn't rigged, you big dummy. The. End.
