About a month ago comedian and celebrity entertainer Steve Harvey met with President Trump. After the meeting Harvey spoke with reporters about the meeting and sung the President’s praises. Some looked at it as a good opportunity to mend the gap between the African American community and the White House administration. But it turns out that Harvey is getting the most backlash of all.
Harvey said the following on a Wednesday episode of his show about his meeting with the President,
“So many of my so-called friends have just eaten me alive for going to meet with the president of the United States.”
He explained the outrage was something that shocked him as it had been,
“mind-boggling to me, because if you understood what I was up there meeting about, you’d probably be quiet. But since you don’t, you just comment about it — you don’t understand.”
When pressed about what they were meeting about 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.”
What is so wildly hysterical about it, is that Democrats and liberals in general tout an ideology of tolerance and acceptance. Yet the minute one of “their own” says something that is even marginally different than the narrative they perpetuate, they turn on them. That is not tolerant or accepting at all.
Steve Harvey could have protested or taken to social media to disparage the President, but he went out of his way to meet with the President to mend fences and create some real substantive change. He did something meaningful and purposeful. Yet his liberal friends are eating him alive for it.
It just goes to show the ridiculous double standards that Democrats have when it comes to being tolerant and accepting. It also goes to show you, that they don’t actually want to achieve anything other than creating a disturbance.
