Diamond and Silk Bash ‘Little Spike Lee’ for Blasting Trump: He’s the ‘Gatekeeper of the Democrat Plantation’

Trump world celebrities Diamond and Silk joined Fox News host Jesse Watters on Saturday night to blast Spike Lee for his profanity-laced tirade against President Donald Trump at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this week.

During a press conference for BlacKkKlansman, which premiered at Cannes on Monday, Lee blasted Trump for his response to the deadly alt-right, white supremacist march in Charlottesville.

“That motherf—er was given a chance to say we are ’bout love, and not hate, and that motherf—er did not denounce the motherf—ing Klan, the alt-right, and those Nazi motherf—ers,” Lee said, according to Variety. 

Watters introduced the segment by playing a heavily bleeped clip of Lee’s remarks, before asking Diamond and Silk for their thoughts on Lee’s anti-Trump views.

“Little Spike Lee is just upset because he can’t get the majority of his movies to spike to the top,” Lynnette Hardaway, better known as Diamond, said. “So he’s trying to politicize this movie. Throwing daggers at a sitting president and calling a sitting president nasty names is not going to get people to the polls.”

Then Rochelle Richardson, aka Silk, chimed in.

“We look at little Spike Lee as one of the gatekeepers of the Democrat plantation,” Silk opined. “He don’t want to see black people come up. All he wanna see is black people stay stuck. That’s why they make these boring movies to try to keep black people stuck in the pain of their ancestors and stuck in the pain of slavery.”
