Earlier this week comedian Steve Harvey raised eyebrows after meeting with president-elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower in New York and agreeing to work with Dr. Ben Carson at the department of Housing and Urban Development.

Steve now admits he was surprised and hurt by the severe backlash.

In his first radio show since his meeting with Trump Steve admits,

“On a personal note, lot of y’all hurt me. I didn’t expect the backlash to be so fierce. I also understand if I’m going to keep getting stabbed at, at least while you’re stabbing me, you should understand my intent.”

“I’m from the hood. I’ve been putting in the work for years. I care about these inner cities because that’s where I’m from.”

“But I’m also very aware of the anger that so many people feel. And these voices will continue to be heard and they should. If we sit at the table, then we can have a say-so.”

“When I walked away, (I felt) there might be a real chance for some positive to come out of what many feel is doom and gloom.”
