Kanye West Says Trump’s MAGA Hat Makes Him Feel Like "Superman"

NEW YORK- FEBRUARY 22 Singer Monica visits BET's '106 & Park' at BET Studios

"Day One, solved one of his biggest problems".

Both Brown and West have been vocal supporters of the president. But the campaign "I'm With Her" just didn't make me feel, as a guy that didn't get to see my dad all the time, like a guy that could play catch with his son.

In an extraordinary, mostly uninterrupted rant, West said that he was recently diagnosed as being bipolar, but he insisted the diagnosis was wrong and that he was merely sleep-deprived. The rapper's statement lasted almost 10 minutes before the president chimed in to compliment West on his honesty.

West said he "loved Hillary" Clinton, Trump's 2016 Democratic rival, because he loves everyone, but said he connected with Trump's "male energy".

The Chicago-raised rapper and the NY real estate mogul-turned president have a long friendship that goes back before the 2016 election.

Trump endorses West for president: Seemingly pleased with the musician's comments, Trump declared, "He can speak for me any time he wants".

Mr Trump joked: "We could get rid of Air Force One".

It'd be cool to have "Trump factories", West added.

Kanye West is in the house - the White House, to be precise.

"That was quite something", Trump finally said to laughter from astonished senior aides and journalists at the end of the soliloquy, which Kanye punctuated with bangs of his fist on the legendary Resolute desk, used by presidents since the 1880s. The rapper visited with the then-president-elect at Trump Tower a month before Trump's inauguration.

"A liberal would try to control a black person through the concept of racism, because they know we are very proud, emotional people", he said. He said the bombastic pair discussed "life".

The topics for the meeting were reportedly supposed to include "manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence and what can be done to reduce violence in Chicago", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said before the meeting, according to E!

"We feel that stop-and-frisk does not help the relationships in the city", Mr. West told the president.

West has received a lot of backlash from fans and his fellow celebrities for his support of the president. West brought visual aids for his presentation, at one point whipping out his iPhone to pass around a photo, and thanks to a news camera and the sharp eyes of SportsNet New York's Kenny Ducey, we now know the rapper and producer's lock screen password: 000000.

"And there are a lot of people that are in a situation like that, and we are actively looking for those situations", Mr. Trump said Wednesday. "I'm talking about the it-will-never-happens of the world, people in high school told you things would never happen". He claimed the two shared "dragon energy". And he wasn't even the one wearing a Make America Great Again hat.

"We don't need sentences, we need pardons", Mr. West told the president. "And you made a Superman cape for me".

Trump returned the love at a campaign-style rally in MI in April. "I met with Michael Sacks, that's Rahm's right-hand man", West said, referring to Rahm Emanuel, Chicago's mayor.

"It is very unfair to African-Americans".

It was the first of several off-color remarks Kanye would drop in the Oval Office, including this line: "He might not have expected to have a insane motherfucker like Kanye West run up and support".
