During a Thursday appearance on MSNBC, Washington Post reporter Jonathan Capehart ridiculed President Trump's "laughable" embrace of Kanye West as a spokesman for the African-American community.
When West ran out of steam, The president concluded, "He can speak for me any time he wants".
He continued, "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 insane mother-- like [me]".
In a almost 10-minute long speech in the Oval Office, West says he was pressured not to wear his red "Make America Great Again". "When I put this hat on, I felt like Superman. It's handsome though." He said that Trump had given him (we assume metaphorically) "a Superman cape" to help do good. "That's my favorite superhero". After a quick lunch, Trump and Kanye will probably sit down to hash out West's 2024 campaign strategy, because that's where all this is really headed, isn't it? There's no word on if Kid Rock, who was also spotted arriving at the White House on Thursday, was around during the conversation.
"I tell you what, that was pretty impressive", said the president in response to West's outpouring. "That was quite something".
According to reports out of the room where the meeting took place, West spoke for a solid 10 minutes, said he had been misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder and also said he's sleep-deprived. "I just channeled it", West responded.
"If he don't look good, we don't look good".
West also proposed that Mr Trump get rid of Air Force One and purchase a hydrogen-powered aeroplane.
Near the end of the meeting, West got up out of his chair and came around the desk to give Trump a side hug.
The president is set to sign the Music Modernization Act during West's White House visit.
West said he was raising the case of a 68-year-old prisoner.
"We need prototypes so we can start working again", he said.
