Steve Harvey has been in his feelings ever since Black folks let him have it for meeting with Donald Trump. But now that he's done licking his wounds, he's putting into motion a plan to win back our hearts, and our tweets, after a month filled with PR disasters.
According to the New York Daily News, Harvey is hiring a special operative to help him clean up his image after the backlash from his Trump meeting and his disparaging comments about Asian men.
So, who do you call when you're in a fix? The world's best fixer, Olivia Pope.
That's right, Harvey has allegedly hired crisis expert Judy Smith, also known as the powerhouse on whom the show Scandal is based, to make us all forget his recent gaffes. The talk show host is launching a new show on a different network in the fall, so he only has a few short months to win back his viewers en masse.
Considering the dragging he got following his Trump Tower meeting and subsequent praise of President Trump, it's not gonna be easy. Get a taste of what Ms. Smith is up against, below:

It honestly wouldn't surprise me if we found out Donald Trump thought Frederick Douglas was Steve Harvey.— Jenny Johnson (@JennyJohnsonHi5) February 1, 2017
Steve Harvey was into #alternativefacts months ago. The Trump administration may have got the idea from him.— Doug Puthoff (@dougputhoff) January 23, 2017
Steve Harvey is such a hypocrite. Called out his listeners for supporting Trump. Yet, he met with him two weeks ago at his tower.— Jay (@artsyboy1985) January 23, 2017
