One half of pro-President Trump video-blogging team Diamond and Silk will be in the house at Tuesday night’s State of the Union address.

Diamond, also known as Ineitha Lynnete Hardaway, will be there as a guest of Iowa Rep. Steve King, who was recently removed from all House committee assignments after wondering in an interview why phrases like “white nationalist” and “white supremacist” are considered to be “offensive.”

“Having only one ticket, I invited one of two guests for the State of the Union tonight...Lynnette Hardaway & Rochelle Richardson, otherwise know as Diamond & Silk,” King posted on Twitter Tuesday. “Diamond won the coin toss.”

Trump’s speech is set to begin at 9 p.m

The conservative-leaning, North Carolina-based duo is also listed as among those hosting the Fox Nation streaming service’s coverage of the State of the Union.
