Former President Barack Obama was a guest on the Breakfast Club radio show in New York City on Wednesday.
Co-host Charlamagne tha god put Obama on the spot, asking him why he didn't do more for Black people in his 8 years in office.
Co-host DJ Envy also pressed Obama to explain why he uplifted LGBT+ people while Black people didn't receive any tangibles.
Obama said, "Look, I'm just trying to sell books." Just kidding. He didn't say that. But he may as well have.
Obama said he was confident that he did more for Black people than current President Donald Trump. He said he just didn't go around bragging about what he did.
He also blamed Republicans for blocking his attempts to do something for Black people. But Democrats held the majority in both the House and the Senate in Obama's first 2 years in office.

New York radio host Charlamagne the god claims Kanye West is in debt to Big Sean, an artist on his G.O.O.D. Music label.
Kanye went on a Twitter.com rant, denouncing Universal Music Group for refusing to give him ownership of his masters.
In a series of tweets over several days, Kanye posted his entire contract on Twitter. The 43-year-old mega producer tweeted a video that showed him urinating on one of his 21 Grammy Awards submerged in a toilet bowl.
But Charlamagne insists that Kanye West doesn't treat his own artists the way he wants to be treated by the overlords at UMG.
During a recent Breakfast Club "Rumor Report" segment, Charlamagne claimed Kanye owes Big Sean millions of dollars while keeping 50% of the rapper's royalties and profits.

"The restraint Big Sean shows to Kanye West is remarkable," Charlemagne said. "I hope one day Big Sean tells his story, but just know Kanye West owes Big Sean a whole lot of money and he got Big Sean in a very terrible contract to be out here screaming about giving folks their masters back."
Charlamagne wasn't done. He said Kanye won't help his own artists get their masters back.
"Kanye West owes Big Sean $3 million, Kanye West gets half of Sean's profits and half of Sean's royalties, and Kanye wouldn't agree to Big Sean getting his masters back from Def Jam... Kanye needs to do right by Big Sean."

Charlamagne tha god ripped Joe Biden for saying President Trump was the first racist to be elected president.
The 77-year-old Democrat chastised Trump for repeatedly referring to the COVID-19 pandemic as the "China virus" or the "Wuhan virus".
"The way he deals with people based on the color of their skin, their national origin, where they're from, is absolutely sickening," Biden said during a virtual townhall from his basement in Delaware on Wednesday.
Biden added, "No sitting president has ever done this. Never, never, never. No Republican president has done this. No Democratic president."
His remark confused and angered some Americans who accused Biden of rewriting America's racist past.
The New York City radio host was among Biden's more vocal critics. "I really wish Joe Biden would shut the eff up forever and continue to act like he's starring in the movie 'A Quiet Place,' because as soon as he opens his mouth and makes noise, he gets us all killed," Charlamagne said on The Breakfast Club on Friday.
Charlamagne gave Biden the "Donkey of the Day" title, saying, "Joe, you got to hurry up and announce your Black woman VP so I can be enthused about voting for her because I will never be enthused about voting for you. You know America is a terrible place when Kanye West seems like a viable option."

Joe Biden is catching heat for falsely accusing Black radio host Charlamagne tha god of "baiting" him into making his infamous "you ain't Black" comment.
During an appearance on CNNLOL, host Don Lemon allowed Biden to falsely accuse Charlamagne without challenging him.
Biden made the racist remark during a Skype chat with Power 105.1's "The Breakfast Club." Biden only gave Charlamagne 11 minutes of his time, prompting Charlamagne to complain that Biden doesn't give Black journalists enough face time.
"Listen you gotta come see us when you come to New York VP Biden... It's a long way until November. We got more questions," Charlamagne said.
Biden replied: "You got more questions? If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black."
Biden later apologized for being a "wise guy". He didn't blame Charlamagne for baiting him until his appearance on CNNLOL.
"It should be curious to see how Charlamagne tha God reacts to this old white racist blaming him for his racism," wrote Breitbart.com contributor John Nolte.
"But what I'd be really interested in seeing is if Charlamagne has the moral courage to call Don Lemon out for allowing this old white racist to deliberately lie and smear him in this way."

Democratic lawmakers winced when presumptive nominee Joe Biden made a cringeworthy statement to Black radio host Charlamagne tha god during a Skype chat last week.
Biden told Charlamagne he's not Black if he can't choose between him or President Trump in the November elections.
Democrats immediately called on their Black allies in the news media to spin the story in Biden's favor.
But Charlamagne, a radio host on The Breakfast Club, said Biden's chances of avoiding low Black voter turnout are slim if he doesn't pick a Black female running mate.
"On top of possible Russian interference and voter suppression, [Democrats] have to worry about voter depression," he said, "that's people staying home on Election Day because they just aren't enthused by the candidate.
When asked by MSNBC host Joy Reid about Biden potentially picking Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, Charlamagne said if Biden chooses Klobuchar, Black voter turnout will be low this November.
"They've got to make some real policy commitments to black people," Charlamagne said. "It has to come to the point where we stop putting the burden on black voters and start putting the burden on Democrats to show up for black voters."
Democrats are quickly losing their enthusiasm for Biden as the presumptive nominee.

In an interview with UK's Sunday Times, far-left Congresswoman Ilhan Omar made it clear that Biden is not her choice for the nominee.
Omar said if it was up to her, Biden would not be the Democratic nominee.
Charlamagne tha god came out swinging a day after Joe Biden dropped a racist remark about Black voters during their short Skype interview.
Biden, 77, sparked outrage when he told Charlamagne "If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't Black."
The humiliated radio host told CNN that Biden's statement was part of his track record with Black voters, that includes his crime bill and the war on drugs that decimated Black communities.
The radio host blamed "systemic racism" in healthcare as the reason the coronavirus hit Black people hardest during the coronavirus pandemic.
"Like I said before if you have created legislation that has hurt then you have to create legislation that helps, it's just that simple. The whole system needs to be dismantled and rebuilt and he has been a very intricate part of that system."
"Whether you're talking about '84 with the mandatory minimum sentences for drug dealers, when you talk about '86 with crack laws that gave you more [prison] time for crack cocaine and powder cocaine, or if you talk about the '94 crime bill. He really was one of the people on the front lines when it came to the war on drugs, and mass incarceration. If he wants to be president, he needs to fix that."
Sen. Joe Biden offered his sincerest apologies for suggesting that all Black Americans vote for Democrats regardless of their record on civil rights.
Biden, 77, sparked a severe backlash when he told Charlamagne tha god "you ain't Black" if he didn't pick him over Trump.
Black Twitter erupted with condemnation and a plethora of Biden dementia memes. Biden is rumored to be suffering from the longterm effects of senile dementia.
Many on Black Twitter said Biden would not have insulted any other race in such a manner.

Biden previously angered Black Americans when he commented that former President Barack Obama was "articulate" and "bright" and "clean."
Biden humbly apologized for his cringe-worthy remark to Charlamagne and all Black Americans in a statement to the AP on Friday.
"I should not have been so cavalier," Biden told the Associated Press. "I've never, never, ever taken the African American community for granted. I shouldn't have been such a wise guy."
Biden added that, "No one should have to vote for any party based on their race, their religion, their background," he told the Black Chamber of Commerce in a phone call on Friday.
Black conservatives have long complained that Democrats take Black people for granted and just assume they will vote the party line regardless of the candidate.
Joe Biden sparked controversy on social media for suggesting that radio host Charlamagne tha god "ain't Black" if he doesn't vote for Biden, a Democrat.
Biden suggested that all Black Americans automatically vote for Democrats regardless of their record on civil rights.
Biden, 77, made the remark during a chat with Charlamagne tha god, real name Lenard McKelvey, on the syndicated radio program "The Breakfast Club" on Friday.
Biden's remark came when he tried to end the interview. "You can't do that to Black media!" Charlamagne shouted.
"You've got more questions?" said Biden, after looking at his watch. "Well, I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black," Biden said sarcastically.
"It don't have nothing to do with Trump, it has to do with the fact -- I want something for my community," Charlamagne replied.
"Take a look at my record, man," said Biden. "I extended the Voting Rights Act 25 years. I have a record that's second to none. The NAACP has endorsed me every time I've run. Take a look at the record. Anyway, thanks, I will come back."

Charlamagne tha god claims he has other "potential deals" lined up when he exits Power 105.1 morning show "The Breakfast Club" after his contract expires.
Rumors swirled last month that the 41-year-old radio host, real name Lenard McKelvey, and his co-hosts Angela Yee, 45, and DJ Envy, 42, were considering leaving the show.
McElvey founded the show in 2010 after he was fired from the popular Wendy Williams Show on WBLS. McElvey and his co-hosts have been hinting about leaving The Breakfast Club.
"He loves working for iHeart Radio, but he is contemplating his next move," a source [read: Charlamagne] tells Page Six. "There are a lot of potential deals in the air, and he just wants to keep his options open and think strategically."
Years before The Breakfast Club, McKelvey was accused of rape by a then-15-year-old girl in South Carolina. The charges were mysteriously dropped.
McElvey is married but his radio career has been plagued by down low rumors.
I know some of you are tired of hearing about Malik Yoba's transgender proclivities, but he's still trending and Sandrarose.com covers news and gossip.
Yoba and NBJC Director David Johns (far left) were invited guests on The Breakfast Club on Tuesday. Yoba, 51, brought along his guests, trans activist Carmen Carrera (2nd from left), and healthcare Worker Nala Simone (2nd from right) to discuss transgender issues.
As you know, Yoba is getting backlash for admitting he is attracted to MTF trans, and for urging heterosexual men to consider bedding MtF trans, since, Yoba insists, they are women too.
Johns got the conversation popping by reminding Charlamagne and DJ Envy that they have entertained homophobia and transphobia on The Breakfast Club.
Watch the video below to see how that conversation went.
