KATIE PAVLICH (GUEST CO-HOST): What is your reaction to this allegation that there's not enough diversity on the stage last night?

LYNETTE HARDAWAY (DIAMOND): Well first of all, let's just get this straight, Bernie is not advocating for Black people. What is he advocating for is to keep Black people in poverty and keep them enslaved to the government.


HARDAWAY: And when we talk about exploitation. Why is he trying to exploit Black people with free stuff?


HARDAWAY: Uh-huh. Because free stuff is not freedom. It's a way to be controlled by white old men like Bernie Sanders.

RICHARDSON: That's right.

HARDAWAY: When I look at all of them up there on that stage, especially Bernie Sanders, I just shake my head. They don't even realize that we have a president that have this economy booming, that cut regulations where people can thrive. If you want to be a business owner, you can.

RICHARDSON: That's right.

HARDAWAY: And that goes for Black people, too.

RICHARDSON: That's right.

HARDAWAY: They don't even realize that our president have people leaving poverty and going into prosperity, so they trying to pander. They calling each other out using the race card, and I sit there and shake my head. They are not going to be able to beat President Donald J. Trump with their policies.

RICHARDSON: That's right.

HARDAWAY: They have no solutions, and they can keep their socialistic ideas.

RICHARDSON: So the best thing for Bernie Sanders is to stop pushing socialism, and start putting in for his Social Security, because he's not going to be president.

HARDAWAY: That's right.
