6 extremely surreal moments from Kanye West's meeting with President Trump

Posted October 13, 2018

Kanye West climbed onto the table of an Apple store in Washington DC where he gave a seemingly impromptu "keynote" address where he said President Donald Trump is open to "adjusting and listening" just after he met Trump in the White House.

Kanye came to the White House clearly with a lot on his mind, chiefly his support for the president.

During the meeting, West suddenly suggested Trump should be using "the iPlane 1", a hydrogen-powered concept aircraft, and took out his iPhone to show it to the president.

"Topics of discussions will include manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence, and what can be done to reduce violence in Chicago".

West delivered an enthusiastic, erratic 10-minute monologue while sitting across from Trump in the Oval Office on Thursday.

Kanye turned to the issue of racism, saying "As black people, we also need to take responsibility for what we're doing".

"And in the middle of Hurricane Michael, this guy says, 'I like you!'" Chris Wallace said. I think it would be cool for them be Trump factories because he's a master of industry, he's a master builder.

Trump wore the hat, according to Kanye.

What's bitterly ironic about West's praise for Trump is that the president has far more in common with Superman's arch-enemy Lex Luthor.

"You know, Trump's mouth said, that was impressive, but you could see he was thinking, 'Is it racist if I call the cops?'" Noah said.

During the meeting, West said Trump may have been surprised that a "crazy motherf-er" like himself would endorse him, adding, "Trump is on his hero's journey right now".

The rapper also shot down the idea that all black people should support the Democrats.

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said Trump and his guests would discuss potential future clemencies for convicts along with "addressing the massive violent crime surge in Chicago" and efforts to create jobs for African-Americans.

The pair adjourned for lunch after West gave Trump a hug and told reporters "I love this guy right here". Also attending is former National Football League great Jim Brown, a civil rights leader who has met with Trump previously.

West and Chappelle's friendship dates back to Mr. Kim Kardashian's first televised performance on Chappelle's Comedy Central show in 2004.
