Staunch pro-Trump vloggers Diamond & Silk made an appearance on Fox & Friends to talk about, in part, how awful and evil Hillary Clinton is.
What was most alarming about this particular diatribe from the duo, however, was their completely falsifiable claim that the former secretary of state sold a bunch of uranium of Russia and now the country has nuclear weapons.
“I think and we think that Hillary Clinton reminds us of a nasty sore that’s rotten to the core that really won’t go away,” Diamond said, as Silk said “That’s right” to punctuate her every point.
“And listen, I think it’s time for her to go somewhere and be quiet,” Diamond continued. “If she’s going to be on the national platform, or on her little platform, she needs to talk about her dirty deeds. How she paid for that fake dossier to try to undermine President Trump during the election. How she sold 20 percent of the uranium to Russia and now Russia have nuclear weapons. And you know that uranium is bomb-making material.”
To be clear, Russia has had nuclear weapons since the 1940s, and Clinton did not sell “20 percent of the uranium to Russia.” Needless to say, the absurd claims did not receive any pushback from the Fox & Friends hosts, which is even more concerning given reports that President Donald Trump is a fan of Diamond & Silk.
Funnily enough, later on in Friday morning’s episode of Fox & Friends, they replayed the segment, but edited out the false claims made by the pair.
Watch the original video above, via Fox News, and now look at the little “retrospective,” conveniently leaving out the wild conspiracy yammering about selling uranium:
Sneaky sneaky, Fox. Just not sneaky enough.
