Guest co-host Yvette Nicole Brown stater her belief that Trump and his inner circle probably laughed at West's expense yesterday after their meeting was over. He loves him and proved it on Thursday by suddenly striding from his chair at a surreal White House meeting to hug the president.
West spoke to reporters for almost 10 minutes in the Oval Office.
West has received ample criticism from his fans for supporting a president who has become a fixture in highly critical lyrics, public comments, and diss tracks from other rappers such as Eminem, YG, G-Eazy, and the late Mac Miller.
"It was from the soul".
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".
West chose to further display his gratitude to the President by presenting him with a very Kanye-appropriate pair of gifts. "But, you know, I don't have to agree with everything that he says".
West, according to reporter Jack Jenkins, announced he had made a hat for Trump that says, "Make America Great", leaving out the word "again" because the original slogan "hurts black people".
He declared that his Make America Great Again hat is like a "superman cape" that gives him "balls", blamed a lack of male role models in the world for his attraction to Trump, and detailed some redesign plans for Air Force One (to be hydrogen powered). "And then after that. we're still family, we're still around each other".
Trump welcomed West to the White House on Thursday afternoon, saying the rapper "has been a friend for a long time".
Trump recently tweeted praise for West, who closed a Saturday Night Live show wearing a MAGA hat and delivering an unscripted pro-Trump message after the credits rolled. Jenkins said that Kanye cut out the "again" part because it "hurts black people". His wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian West, has worked with the White House on criminal justice reform and clemency issues.
