This is What Steve Harvey Had to Say About Meeting with the President Elect [AUDIO]

During his first radio show after meeting with Donald Trump, comedian Steve Harvey said that he was "hurt" by the backlash he received for meeting with President-Elect Donald Trump. Harvey called in to talk to his co-host Shirley Strawberry. Steve was celebrating his birthday and not scheduled to be in studio last Monday on the Dr. Martin Luther King Day holiday.

Harvey met with the president elect at Trump Tower in New York City on the previous Friday. Harvey said Trump put him in touch with his appointee for HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson to discuss housing issues in inner cities. "A lot of y’all hurt me,” Harvey said. “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.”

Perhaps Harvey's intent now is that everyone kind of forgets about the meeting. Which will most likely happen over time now that some of the smoke has died down. In the long run will Steve Harvey take a hit in his popularity with African Americans? It's too early to tell.

In case you missed it, we have curated the audio from the program below.

Listen to "Interview: Steve In His Own Words on his Meeting with Trump" on Spreaker.

So Trump and Harvey talked golf, golf courses and the election. And we find out it was Trump's people idea (not the president elect himself) that arranged the meeting with Steve Harvey. (Perhaps this was too big of an opportunity for Harvey to turned down.) Then Trump asked what he wanted and he gets Ben Carson on the phone. Now we wonder why Trump's people didn't set up a meeting with any celebrity Asians or Hispanics entertainers or even non-celebrity African Americans during this entire transition period. Well at least Steve Harvey finally came around and apologized to Asian men.

More news...On Sunday 107.5 WBLS weekend host LaDawn Black announced she was moving on to a new opportunity and leaving the station. Black made a surprise return to radio this week at her old stomping grounds as a guest host on The AM Clique Morning Show this week on 92Q (WERQ-FM Baltimore). LaDawn hosted the very popular night show 'The Love Zone' until 2013 when she moved over to sister Adult R&B station Magic 95.9 as midday host.

iHeart's Power 99 (WUSL-FM Philadelphia) midday host Cappuchino exits the station. She's been with the station since 2012. 'Way Up with Angela Yee' is now heard on Power 99 as one of the 30 affiliates that carry the syndicated program across the country.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
