Kanye West barely lets Donald Trump get any words in.
We've all been looking forward to (and have been a little confused by) Kanye West's meeting with Donald Trump today. There's been a lot written about their bond over the years but it has all come full circle now as Kanye goes on one of his classic rants inside of the White House. Could this be foreshadowing his rumored run for office in 2024?
Donald Trump signed the new Music Modernization Act today as he was surrounded by Kid Rock and a few of music's greats. Yeezy was expected to be present but he may have arrived a little late as TMZ reports that he was not in the room when the new law was signed. He got in plenty of action though, going on an over 20-minute rant as he sat face-to-face with the President and dozens of photographers. There's a lot to unpack from his ramblings as he speaks about his diagnosis with bipolar disorder and how a doctor actually told him he simply has sleep deprivation, which could materialize as dementia in a decade's time. He also presented a sketch for an airplane that he wants Trump to fly in because, in Kanye's words, "If he don't look good, we don't look good. This is our President. He has to be the freshest, the flyest, the flyest planes, the best factories." He plans on working with Apple to build the plane.
Just when Trump says they're going to have lunch, Kanye goes off on another tangent. The President is patient throughout it all, nodding his head and taking in all of the absurdity.
This is 2018, everyone. Where Donald Trump is (still) the President and Kanye West is taking his rants to the White House.
