Woe is Steve Harvey. Woe is he. Apparently the backlash Harvey received after meeting with Donald Trump has gotten to him. Also, he haz a sad.

To say that Harvey was dragged to hell and back over his meeting with President Molded Tangerine would be an understatement. The backlash was swift and brutal. Harvey, who was called everything from a sellout to a coon, made it clear there was nothing he wouldn’t shuck and jive for when it comes to getting a seat at Trump’s urine-stained table.


But during his radio talk show this week, Harvey had a few words for his fans, who are probably now haters.

“On a personal note, a lot of y’all hurt me,” Harvey said. “You really did. I didn’t expect the backlash to be so fierce.”


Harvey then went on and on about how important it is to meet with the president.

“I have an obligation to take a seat at the table when invited,” Harvey said. “Change can only happen if you sit at the table. ... If you’re not at the table, you can’t even ... suggest what we should be doing. Therefore, it was very important for me to take the meeting.”


Dude, your only obligation right now is to make jokes (that aren’t funny) and host Family Feud. No one asked for anything more than that. You just proved to the world that you don’t even care about who the person is sitting at the head of the table. Just so long as you get an invite.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
