Steve Harvey met with Donald Trump to help Ben Carson on Housing and Urban Development agenda

Seven days from now, Donald J. Trump, who inherited his wealth and real-estate endeavors from his father and won the 2016 presidential election despite a deficit of 2.9 million votes, thanks to help from misinformation campaigns and narrow Electoral College margins in multiple states, will take the oath of office to become President of the United States.

So why was he meeting with comedian and Family Feud host Steve Harvey?

We’re not taking your top six answers, nor polling 100 people. We’re not consulting with Harvey’s advice books or his daytime talk show.

Harvey showed up at Trump Tower on Friday the 13th because the Trump transition team and President Barack Obama asked him there. Once there, Trump introduced Harvey to Dr. Ben Carson, the expected new head of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, to help Carson, a surgeon, figure out projects and programs for inner cities.

Roll the clip.

Harvey also explained himself further today via Twitter:
