  • Trump's stunned silence as Kanye rants in White House

"Kanye West is what happens when Negroes don't read".

Immediately after Kanye West revealed his bad iPhone passcode to the world, he said that Apple should build Trump the iPlane1.

Inching ever closer to a Cabinet position with each passing day, Billboard now reports that Kanye West will attend the signing ceremony for the new Music Modernization Act while swinging by the White House Thursday.

Rapper Kanye West had a few things to say when he stopped by the White House for a visit with President Donald Trump Thursday.

For more than 10 minutes Thursday, President Trump was struck almost speechless as rapper, activist, entrepreneur and MAGA-hat wearing, Trump-loving, dragon-energy exuding Kanye West held forth in an Oval Office soliloquy that included an f-bomb, references to male genitalia and a presidential hug that looked more like a mauling. "That was quite something".

West, who was wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat, said the Trump-campaign staple made him "feel like Superman". "Let me give this guy a hug", he said. Ms. Kardashian has been working with administration officials on prison reform and helped to convince Mr. Trump earlier this year to pardon Alice Marie Johnson, who served more than two decades in federal prison after being convicted on nonviolent drug charges.

"I like him a lot", Trump said of West in that interview.

West even touched on how he was misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder.

Invited to speak by Trump, West launched into a long, winding discourse, occasionally slapping the Resolute Desk for emphasis.

Hurricane Michael aftermath may cause record highs in northeast Florida
According to CNN , Hurricane Michael left more than 350,000 with power and neighborhoods damaged after hitting near Mexico beach. An 80-mile stretch of Interstate 10, the main east-west highway along the panhandle, was closed. 'It's absolutely horrendous.

On "male energy": "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". Trump looked alternatively bemused, entertained, baffled, guarded and, yes, maybe even a little nervous all at once.

Mr Trump said that "stop-and-frisk works".

His stump speech includes repeated boasts about record low unemployment for African Americans and he is touting the need for reform of the prison system, where blacks are about 38 per cent of inmates, despite being only 13 per cent of the U.S. population.

Rapper and producer Kanye West's surreal speech to Donald Trump during a televised meeting at the White House today has left heads spinning.

"It is very unfair to African-Americans".

"I love everyone, right", he said. "But they told me, and I liked him, and I'm not scared to say what I like".

West, slouched in a chair facing the president, called himself a "crazy mother- (expletive)" and rued the "bull- (expletive)" the president endures.

A number of fans speculated that the musician got his initials the wrong way around, but Sportsmail understand that they stand for "West-Kardashian".
