Kanye West met with Donald Trump today and let’s just say it was a very interesting time, full of rants, talk of self and about alternate universes… He also managed to drop some F bombs as well.
According to Variety:
Kanye West met with President Donald Trump at the White House on Thursday for a lunch to discuss topics like prison reform and urban revitalization.
But that is not likely to be the media takeaway from the scene.
After pool reporters were allowed into the Oval Office for a photo op, West and Trump answered questions and the artist went on a 10-minute soliloquy, making stream-of-consciousness points about the state of the world and his support for the president.
As Trump sat at the Resolute Desk, West talked.
“Let’s stop worrying about the future, all we have is today. … Trump is on his hero’s journey right now. He might not have thought he’d have a crazy motherf—er like Kanye West” to support him, West said.
West veered into many different topics. He showed Trump an iPhone photo of a hydrogen-powered plane he thought that Trump should fly in instead of Air Force One. “This is what our president should be flying in,” he said. He explained why others should support Trump.
“What I need ‘Saturday Night Live’ to improve on, or liberals to improve on, is if he don’t look good, we don’t look good,” West said. “This is our president. He has to be the freshest, the flyest, the flyest planes, the best factories and we have to make our core be in power. We have to bring jobs into America because our best export is entertainment and ideas, but when we make everything in China, and not in America, then we are cheating our country.
“We are putting people in a position to have to do illegal things to end up in the cheapest factory ever, the prison system.”
West raised the case of a 68-year-old prisoner.
“Really, the reason why they imprisoned him is because he started doing positive for the community. He started showing that he actually had power,” West said. “So, there’s theories that there’s infinite amounts of universe, and there’s alternate universe.”
Near the end of the meeting, West got up out of his chair and came around the desk to give Trump a side hug. “I love this guy,” West said.
