Here’s What T.I.(And Our Readers) Think About Harvey’s “Respect the President” Warning


by G. Brown

In a political atmosphere where even allies are throwing the president under the bus, why would Steve Harvey step up to defend him?  As the FBI, Justice Department and all the rest of the alphabet soup that makes up our nation’s intelligence community finally closed the door on that crazy “Obama tapped Trump Tower” conspiracy, Harvey opens the door to another Pandora’s Box.

TRN told you yesterday how Harvey used his radio show to share a friendly warning with Snoop, T.I. and other rappers who are very vocal about their dislike of the current president.  Harvey warned, “The problem with all this is that there is an office in this country called the ‘president,’ and you have to respect the office. You really do. Whether you want to or not. You have to respect the office. They got laws … I would hate for anything to come down…and everybody that’s coming to Snoop’s defense,  I understand…just be smart with what you say. See don’t compound the problem here”.  Basically, Harvey is discouraging the young Black men from publicly criticizing the president or at least to curb the harsh tones and language.

Harvey offered the advice after Snoop’s recent release of his “Lavender (BADBADNOTGOOD) video that shows the rapper pulling a fake gun to the head of  a fake Trump dressed as a clown.  It’s raw, brutal and Snoop’s freedom of expression.

Harvey also called out T.I. who has not minced words in the past about how he feels about Trump. Now that T.I. has heard what Harvey had to say…the Atlanta rapper has a response…and Harvey probably won’t like it.

T.I. posted a screenshot of Trump’s tweet calling for “Jail Time” for Snoop and added his two cents plus a little more. According to XXLMag.com, T.I. said in the post, ““@Snoopdogg is a Fuckin Legend you Fuckin Tangerine Tanned Muskrat scrotum skin, Lacefront Possum fur wig wearing, Alternative face, Atomic Dog diarrhea face ass man!!!!,

And T.I. still had some words left over for Harvey posting on IG, “We respect those who respect US. We respect those who respect themselves. Emergency message to you my brother…#GetOut.”  That hashtag refers to the movie “Get Out” which revolves around a horror plot of White people stealing the bodies of younger, Black people and replacing their minds. T.I. wasn’t alone in his idea that Harvey was way off base….here’s what users on Twitter thought….








And many of our TRN readers agree…















But two of TRN’s readers did agree with Harvey in principle though not necessarily in his choice of words…







  1. Everytime Steve Harvey opens his mouth I hate him more and more.

    I have his book and I am seriously thinking of burning it. Only because i paid money for it is why I haven’t done anything drastic – yet. I just can’t take him seriously anymore. I can’t even stand the sight or sound of him.

    1. @Carol Hi Carol…A lot of Harvey’s former fans are feeling that same emotion. It’s like the guy built his career on being one way and now, he is somebody unrecognizable. His seemingly good intentions are being buried under the image of a sell out. May be just bury your book behind some other books on your shelf. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts Carol…appreciate you.

  2. I will not respect man who has no respect for us a people. This man shitted on Obama, his entire time in office. The first Black President (mixed but still considered black).
    You Steve need to shut up and host your shows, I remember you met with him at Trump towers and came out and said you spoke with him about housing, so should I assume that you are the reason he’s tearing HUD a part? you did say this what you discussed and this is what you and 45 came up with , shame on you. And if it was not then he screwed you are did not hear a word that came out of your mouth, you were just a photo op prop.

  3. Steve Harvey is a AmeriKKKanized KneeGrowpean who believes in the notion of AmeriKKKan Exceptionalism even if it means we as Kidnapped/Enslaved/2nd Class Citizen ( better yet Denizens ) possessing Afrikan people are facing impending destruction !!!!

    1. Dr. H, “KneeGrowPean”, I luv it – looooooooooooooooool. You gave me a good laugh this morning. Thank you! 🙂

  4. So far I have not heard a news reporter say President Trump and the word “Treason” in the same sentence. There has been proof that Trump has business connections and contacts with Russian diplomats, yet the news reporters will not say the word “Treason.” I find that very interesting.

  5. We don’t have to respect him, but we should respect the position. That being said, we shouldn’t stoop to the low levels they do to express their ire. Mrs. Obama said it sufficiently, “…When they go low, we go high….” Mr. Trump continues to show that he doesn’t know what he’s doing; that he can’t be trusted; that he’s truly unqualified for the position; that he’s a bully and he’s operating on fear – he’s afraid because he’s failing so he’s trying to create fear in others. He is trying to create a divisive environment in America (and globally) to take the attention away from his incompetence (I mean that respectfully).

    So let us stop giving him this attention that he so sorely needs and wants and be about the business of countering everything he is doing, legally and respectfully. Bottom line – How do I disrespect someone who is disrespectful? he doesn’t respect himself, so he is grandiose and has low self-esteem despite what he tries to present. A classic narcissist suffering from manipulative personality disorder.

  6. Brothers and sistas think about this, millions of white people were extremely angry when Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the Nation Anthem. These same white people voted for Trump; a man who committed treason against America? I refuse to respect a man who committed treason against America! There is iron clad proof that Trump and several of his administrators have business connections with Russia. White people hate us so much, they will fall in love with a man who is friends with Vladimir Putin!

    1. Brothers and sistas think about this; the four countries that have committed the largest terrorist acts in the last three hundred years have the color combination of red, white and blue. I’m talking about America, the United Kingdom (UK), France and Russia. Please remember that these four countries are white supremacist countries. Please remember that these four countries are responsible for the mass murder of over 20 million black people worldwide.

  7. Like I said before (and I’ll say it again), Steve is right on! Whether we like Trump or not, we should not just support him, but respect him as well!

    1. Shawn J. , you may do what you feel you need and want to do, but WE shouldn’t follow disaster just because it has a title. So, no, I shouldn’t support nor respect him.

    2. You can do whatever you want Shawn J including buying into President Cheeto’S propaganda and whenever you’re speaking, soeak for yourself. Don’t use the word “we” because you are not speaking for the majority of black people who did not vote for President Cheeto.

      I don’t RESPECT President Cheeteo! I didn’t respect him during the primaries, and I especially don’t RESPECT a President who cheated and lied his way to the oval office.
