Diamond and Silk blast Steve Cohen for ‘racially insensitive’ fried chicken stunt: ‘imagine if that was a Republican’

Fox Nation hosts Diamond and Silk called out Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) on Friday morning for his already infamous fried chicken stunt.

Unhappy with Attorney General William Barr’s decision to not testify before the House Judiciary Committee, Cohen met his fellow Congress members on Thursday with a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Cohen was also joined by a plastic chicken while he dug into his food for the cameras.

Cohen explained in a press conference after his stunt that the plastic chicken and bucket were meant as a message to Barr.

“Chicken Barr should have shown up today and answered questions. He was afraid of Barry Burke, he was afraid of Norm Eisen, an attorney general who was picked for his legal acumen, and his abilities would not be fearful of other attorneys watching him for 30 minutes. This man was picked to be Rick Cohn, Donald Trump’s fixer,” said Cohen.

Barr’s reason for not testifying before the House Judiciary Committee is that Congress members were not the ones who would be asking him questions, but rather committee staff.

Conservative commentators Diamond and Silk appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning and they revealed that they were not happy with Cohen’s fried chicken antics. The women ended up calling Cohen “racially insensitive” and saying that the mainstream media would be much more upset if it was a Republican doing such things.

“He’s racially insensitive is what I think and just can you image if that was a Republican doing that to a Democrat? Just think about that for a moment,” said Diamond. “I want you all to understand the attorney general is experiencing all of this slander because the Democrats are afraid. They’re getting caught up in the shenanigans.”

Silk nodded while Diamond blasted Cohen and then confirmed she was in agreement when she said, “yes.”

“Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade also agreed with Diamond and called Cohen’s behavior “unbelievably embarrassing.”

Moving on to the subject of Trump being impeached, Diamond said the president has “done nothing wrong,” but Democrats are unwilling to accept that. She added that there need to be more investigations into the Obama administration and accusations that the administration was spying on the Trump campaign.

If guilty, “they need to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law,” said Diamond.

Silk later added that it’s time for Democrats to move on from the Mueller report and “legislate” and “cooperate” with President Trump.

Diamond and Silk’s accusations against Cohen have spread like wildfire across social media. Though liberal commentators throw out the race card with little thought or care on a daily basis, some have objected to Diamond and Silk playing the card against a Democrat like Cohen.

Outspoken liberal and “Better Call Saul” actor Michael McKean called Diamond and Silk “morons” when reacting on Twitter to their “Fox & Friends” interview.

If only liberals were as vigilant about the race card being played when leftists casually do it every single day. Apparently, you only get called out when you target a Democrat.
