CNN has actually run into a cloud of controversy recently due to its coverage of Kanye West's support for the president of the United States.

Host Chris Wallace later chimed in: "This same guy, Kanye, said George W. Bush didn't care about black people during [Hurricane] Katrina".

"I think his isolation and disconnect with people, plus his fascination with power and fame has him a little", he said. He also criticized the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery, calling it a "trap door".

Added West: "If he don't look good, we don't look good".

Musician Kanye West jumped on top of a table at a Washington, D.C., Apple store following his widely publicized sit-down with President Trump and gave an impromptu 10-minute "keynote" speech, according to a reporter with Religion News Service, per The Washington Post.

"I tell you what: That was pretty impressive", the president said.


Axl Rose, lead singer of the legendary rock band Guns N' Roses, called Kanye West's meeting with President Donald Trump on Thursday a "joke".

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

Regarding the 13th Amendment, which West has been criticized for saying should be abolished, he said, "Why would you keep something around that's a trap door? That was the moment, that's the thing that drove them over the edge", Klavan said. "Hurricane Michael screw you, we've got insane to cover", he said.

Kimmel was not the only late-night comedian to discuss the meeting, with The Daily Show host Trevor Noah left speechless by Trump describing West's rant as "very impressive".

"So Kanye West hugged the President, that's the thing that drove everybody insane".

He told Trump: "My dad and my mom separated, so there was not a lot of male energy in my home, and also I'm married to a family that, you know, not a lot of male energy, going on - it's handsome though".
