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.

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.
