People continue to weigh in on Steve Harvey's controversial meeting with Donald Trump.
One of those people happens to be Stephen A. Smith.
The longtime sports personality used the "Final Take" segment on ESPN's First Take on Monday to defend the comedian's meeting with the president-elect, imploring that "perhaps it is time for all of us to see the big picture, to essentially pay more attention to the issues permeating our society, what it will take to resolve them, and connecting ourselves to who we can ultimately hold accountable rather than focusing on disdain for that very individual in a position to make a difference, knowing that is not going to get us anywhere."
In other words, he wants the Black community to give Trump a chance.
And within minutes of making the take, people began dragging Stephen A. with absolutely zero chill.
Check out Smith's statement, defending Harvey's meeting with Trump and people roasting the ESPN talking head for it.
Stephen A.'s "Final Take" was enough to set off outrage on Twitter.
People are still waiting.
Until we see concrete action, why should we believe anything else?
Apparently, Joey just wants Stephen A. to stop talking.
Many Americans share that same latter sentiment about the president-elect not representing us.
Yes, Donald Trump will be the president by the end of the week. But respect must be earned.
That's Joshua's "Final Take."
Did Steve Harvey and subsequently Stephen A. fall for Trump's bait?
Bloop! Talk to 'em!
What are the chances that Trump goes on a Twitter rant about this?
Welp. One who always speaks with conviction, Stephen A. had to see some of this backlash coming.
