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

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 spent some of his time at his Ohio rally Saturday, saying that under his leadership, the military has developed a secret hydrosonic missile.

There's just one problem: Hydrosonic is a toothbrush.

The Hydrosonic Pro is a Curaprox product that boasts "ultra-fine, gentle CUREN® filaments."Hypersonic missiles are weapons that can travel at 17 times the speed of sound and Navy warships will be outfitted with them. Trump also seems confused about the facts, saying that the missile travels at five times the speed of normal missiles.

‘Jarring’: PA Trump fans attack polls making so much noise poll workers couldn’t read instructions to voters

One Pennsylvania polling place fell under a full out attack on those standing in line to vote and trying to cast a ballot on Saturday.

In a Twitter thread, Behavioral Economist Alex Imas explained that while he was casting his ballot on the outskirts of Philadelphia County, PA Saturday, a parade of semis and other cars surrounded the polling place, laying on their horns.

"I arrived just as polling place opened. Short line. Thought I'd be in and out in 20 minutes tops. Even w/ this short line, it took 2+ hours," he explained.

"Then the next Semi followed, then the 3rd," he continued. "A motorcade of semis, jeeps, and a few sedans drove down the road. All honking. All flying Trump 2020 flags. With people yelling out the window. This motorcade snaked around the polling place the entire time I was there (2 hrs)."

Trump gives 9/11 first responders back the $3.3 million he took from health fund: GOP Congressman

Published

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told Rep. Peter King (R-NY) announced that the 9/11 first responders would get the $3.3 million back that President Donald Trump stole from the program that helped them with medical treatments.

Those at the Twin Towers site in the days following the terrorist attacks breathed in a series of toxic gasses and asbestosis, leading them to have a slew of health problems years later. A fund was set up to ensure that those heroes were always taken care of for the rest of their lives as they suffered through their final years.

“It’s a great victory for really deserving people,” King told the New York Daily News Saturday. "I mean this just never should have happened, but we fought hard, we got it done."
