It’s been almost a year since Steve Harvey was dragged for supporting Donald Trump and people still aren’t letting him live it down. Since the Trump administration is still wreaking havoc on the United States, Steve probably won’t catch a break anytime soon because people believe he, and other African Americans who supported Trump, have contributed to this political circus. But despite what Steve may or may not have done to help Trump secure the presidency, he’s tired of being criticized for the situation. So when a critic recently came at Steve for his political agenda, he went completely off.

Not Here For It:

It looks like some people have no plans of letting Steve off the hook for meeting with Trump, but he’s not here for it anymore. Although he wasn’t exactly okay with letting fans take verbal jabs at him when the situation first happened, he’s really not taking it anymore. In fact, he recently fired back at a fan who criticized him on social media. One of Steve’s female fans challenged his beliefs and asked him “why would you support Trump?” The woman acknowledged that everyone is entitled to their opinion but she wonders how he could possibly support Trump knowing the man he is. A “woke” Steve fired back with a response.

Despite the backlash, Steve Harvey has always defended his actions. Back in January, he explained why he decided to meet with Trump even after his wife suggested that he skip the meeting. “Our president (Obama) asked that all of us sit down and talk to one another in order to move our country forward. The transition teams on both sides asked me to meet and I’m glad I did. He claimed Trump, “immediately got (HUD secretary nominee) Dr. Ben Carson on the phone to begin dialog in looking for programs and housing to help our inner cities.”

After the meeting, he said, “I walked away feeling like I had just talked with a man who genuinely wants to make a difference in this area. I feel that something really great could come out of this.”

Still Gettin’ Dragged:

The latest news follows Steve’s interview last month where he admitted he’s still surprised he was dragged so badly on social media. He explained, “the backlash.” He, once again admitted he should have listened to his wife. “It was so vicious that it really threw me. I was being called names that I’ve never been called: Uncle Tom. A coon. A sellout. Because I went to see this man?! Which only happened because my business partner got a call from the Obama transition team, who said that the Trump transition team would like to set up a meeting. The Obama team said they thought it would be a good idea because the president is encouraging dialogue. And I have a relationship with Obama. We’re friends. So I say, “OK, cool.” Now, here’s the crazy thing: I’m supposed to be on a boat for my 60th birthday, so my wife says, “Steve, just take off [and skip the meeting]. You’ll meet with him some other time.” God, I should’ve listened.”

Maybe next time still will listen to Marjorie because she was dead-on this time.
