Steve Harvey met with President Trump during the Transition at Trump Tower. They discussed helping the black community through different initiatives. Steve Harvey was pummeled for his courage and wisdom to meet with the leader of the free world. He was called an “uncle Tom” and much worse.
Fast forward to a couple weeks back. Snoop Dogg released a video where he can be seen raising a gun to the President’s head. Clearly, it was an idiotic thing to do. You don’t make threats to the President of the United States. Not even if it’s supposed to be “art.” It’s just dumb.
Steve Harvey explains why.
“Here’s the problem,” Harvey explained on his morning radio show. “If something happens, do you get brought in as the copycat version, the reason that spurred action? ‘Cuz there’s some idiot that’s sitting at his house that’s willing to carry this out… and you don’t want to be tied to that.”
The media has a long history of blaming artists for the actions of individuals, so Harvey has a point here. However, Harvey gets further onto his pulpit when he says, “the problem with this is that there’s is an office in this country called the ‘president’, and you have to respect the office. You really do. Whether you want to or not. You have to respect the office. They got laws… I would hate for anything to come down.”
Watch him get destroyed for it by the media and the black community.
