CNN host gobsmacked as wacky ‘Trump Girls’ try to smear Rubio with absurd ‘gay lifestyle’ rumor

Published

on

A pair of homophobic Trump supporters gave CNN’s Carol Costello more than she bargained for when they cited bizarre online rumors to suggest Marco Rubio had engaged in gay sex.

Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway and Rochelle “Silk” Richardson — known as the “Stump for Trump Girls” — have gained fame for their series of online videos supporting Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who is suddenly facing a concerted challenge as the Republican establishment coalesces around its two favored candidates.

“I think that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, they’re both snakes,” said Hardaway.

She then dove into unsubstantiated rumors floating around the Internet, triggered by a Washington Post article detailing Rubio’s 1990 arrest, when he was an 18-year-old college student, for underage drinking with a friend in a Miami park known for drugs and gay sex hookups.

“Marco Rubio told us to google Donald Trump, but I did one better — I googled him,” Richardson continued. “And when I googled him, you know, he owes America and the gay community an apology because it sounds like he may have had a gay lifestyle in his past.”

Costello was shocked by the suggestion — which has not been verified by any news outlets.

“What?” the CNN host asked incredulously. “No, Lynette.”

Richardson said the rumors, which have no apparent basis in fact, were easily found in a Google search.

“That’s what’s on Google,” Richardson insisted. “So you have to be cautious when you start telling people to google people — stuff will come up. We don’t know if it’s true, so we’ll say ‘allegedly,’ but he shouldn’t have told people to google Donald, because I googled him and that came up.”

Published

President Donald Trump has been disappointed in right-wing media for not giving him more credit for pardoning longtime advisor Roger Stone.

"A senior administration official said there were serious divisions among Trump’s aides and allies over Stone’s case, with some cautioning that keeping him out of prison could be politically risky. Among those opposed was Attorney General William P. Barr, who called the prosecution 'righteous' in an interview Wednesday with ABC News, the official said, adding that those pushing Trump to show loyalty to Stone included Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), who is close to the president," The Washington Post reported Saturday.
