President Trump, Kanye West to have White House lunch

It was a head-scratching afternoon at the White House as rapper Kanye West and so many of his opinions descended on the Oval Office to discuss a range of topics, including North Korea and bipolar disorder, with his "brother" President Trump.

As he has often done in recent days, the 41-year-old rapper sported a red "Make America Great Again" hat from Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, which he referred to as his "Superman cape" on Saturday Night Live during last week's visit to the variety show.

West has been publicly supportive of Trump for several months, giving a similar speech to the audience after a performance on "Saturday Night Live" that was not aired. "He has to be the freshest, the flyest" and have "the flyest planes". "You might not have expected a insane motherfucker like Kanye running up to support".

When a reporter noted that Trump has said he supports stop-and-frisk, West said, "We're going to discuss it". Later on, when he was asked about characterizations of the president as racist, West said, "As black people we have to take responsibility for what we're doing".

Ike Barinholtz, who directed the upcoming Trump-inspired political satire "The Oath", said the meeting was inappropriate given the hurricane that is wrecking havoc on the east coast.

As part of the pitch to get Trump on board with criminal justice reform, West argued that "we have to bring jobs into America", because if people don't have jobs, "they end up in the cheapest factory ever, the prison system!".

"You better play 4-D chess with me like it's Minority Report, cause it ain't that simple".


"When I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman - my favorite superhero".

He broke into a nervous laugh and we just hope he's not referencing his freakish new song again, you know the one where he says he'd "smash" his four sister-in-laws.

Violence in Chicago is personal to West, who was raised in the Windy City, named his youngest child "Chicago", and recently told a crowd that he is moving back, according to a video obtained by TMZ. "Trump is on his hero's journey right now". He called himself a "crazy motherfucker".

"It was from the soul", West replied.

Kanye's "terrific" wife opened his eyes, Trump said. He's been a great guy, he's a smart cookie, smart.

The 10-minute diatribe he delivered while face-to-face with the president including a series of curses, his cellphone's [no longer] secret code and hints at a future in politics. "And we met, and I just appreciate it very much".

West is married to reality television star Kim Kardashian West, who pushed Mr Trump to grant a pardon for a drug offender this year.
