Diamond and Silk: the Party Isn't Thrilled

The "black preaching style" is mesmerizing. There's rhyming, there's rhythm, and there's call and response. Two sisters from North Carolina use preacherly cadences to voice their approval of Donald Trump.

Diamond and Silk have gone viral:

Unlike President Obama, who kept his preacher, Jeremiah Wright, at a distance, Donald Trump has embraced these Trump evangelists.

An under-publicized element of Donald Trump's support comes from the African-American community. The billionaire non-politician appears to be succeeding at something the Republican Party has tried and failed to do for decades, but Party leaders don't appear to be thrilled. Puzzling, isn't it?
