Comedian Steve Harvey appears to have had enough of Cornel West, the Princeton University professor, and Tavis Smiley, the PBS talk show host, who have been criticizing President Barack Obama for months, saying Obama hasn’t done enough for Black Americans.
During his syndicated radio show, Harvey scolded West and Smiley, who have embarked on an anti-poverty bus tour.
“I was a huge fan of Cornel West,” he said. ” Tavis, I [‘ve] seen him coming a mile away. His anger started when he had a town hall meeting, President Obama couldn’t come because of the campaign trail and he sent Mrs. Obama. He has held that grudge every since.”
Harvey also scolded West, who has complained about not getting extra tickets to Obama’s inauguration.
“Have you ever been invited to the damn inauguration? Did Bush send for you? Did Clinton send for you? Did Reagan send for you?”
