Kanye West is in the house – the White House, to be precise.
The rapper, who has become one of Trump’s highest-profile celebrity supporters, visited the president at the White House for a planned meeting Thursday afternoon. West dined on roasted chicken and fingerling potatoes over lunch with Trump, Jared Kushner and Ivanka, fellow musician Kid Rock and Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown.
They met Trump in the Oval Office, where West told reporters that Trump gave him ” a Superman cape” to help do good … 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 where, you know, there’s not a lot of male energy. It’s beautiful, though.”
The rapper, who sported a red “Make America Great Again” cap, also reiterated his claim that “they tried to scare me to not wear this hat,” as he did during his recent appearance on the season opener of “Saturday Night Live.”
West then gave a 10-minute soliloquy which he dropped an F-bomb, likened his rhetorical style to “fine wine” (“it has complex notes to it”), announced that he had been misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder and was sleep deprived.
“Let’s stop worrying about the future all we have is today,” he continued “Trump is on his hero’s journey right now. He might not have thought he’d have a crazy (expletive) like (me).”
After he finished, The president concluded, “He can speak for me any time he wants. he’s a smart cookie. He gets it,” adding that West “could very well be” a future presidential candidate.
