Diamond and Silk are two of the most recognizable and outspoken Trump supporters on the planet.
They became viral internet sensations almost immediately after posting their first video supporting Donald Trump.
The other day, Congressman John Lewis questioned the legitimacy of Trump’s presidency despite the fact that Trump won the November election fair and square by a comfortable electoral margin.
Diamond and Silk didn’t appreciate that very much.
Here is their message to Congressman Lewis.
With all due R-E-S-P-E-C-T…….#ChooChooBaby

Congressman Lewis is a Civil Rights hero there’s no doubt about that.
However, there’s no justification for questioning the legitimacy of a Trump presidency.
Gov. Palin weighed in on the matter earlier this week and here is what Vice President-elect Pence had to say about it.
From CBS News:
Vice President-elect Mike Pence said he found Rep. John Lewis’s criticism of President-elect Donald Trump “deeply disappointing” — and that Mr. Trump, who lambasted Lewis on Twitter this weekend, “has every right to defend himself.”
“Donald Trump won this election fair and square, 30 out of 50 states, including Georgia,” he told CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “…To hear John Lewis — a man that I served with, that I respect — to question the legitimacy of the election and to say that Donald Trump will not be a legitimate president was deeply disappointing to me.”
“To hear that he was not going to attend the inauguration this Friday — I hope he reconsiders both statements,” Pence said.
Hopefully, Americans will discontinue the rhetoric we saw from Congressman Lewis and unite around Trump.Note: The author of this article has included commentary that expresses an opinion and analysis of the facts.
