Donald Trump has Kanye West for lunch at the White House

Trump Kanye West has been a terrific guy

On Thursday, West attributed his support for the president to not having "a lot of male energy" in his home growing up.

He said: "They tried to scare me, my friends to not wear this hat, but this hat, it gives me power in a way".

"I was very emotional and I was programmed to think from a victimized mentality". Below are the 17 most surreal, weird and only-in-the-Trump-White-House moments.

"There was something about putting this hat on that made me feel like Superman", West said, as part of an extended soliloquy that spanned topics from his mental health to prison reform to what kind of plane Trump should fly in. Brown, a civil rights leader, has met Trump previously.

"That was quite something", Trump added.

The office is no stranger to blue language - cue the Richard Nixon tapes - but West's often incoherent performance occurred before reporters and cameras. In a freaky performance last month on "Saturday Night Live" he delivered an unscripted pro-Trump message after the credits rolled.

"Trump is on his hero's journey right now", West said, tossing out an expletive to describe himself. I want to hear what Kanye West wants to do when we're talking about criminal justice reform or prisoner reentry - the fact is he can not. He also dismissed the notion that labeling Mr. Trump a racist, as some critics have done, would dissuade him from supporting the president.

From there, West discussed prison reform and violence in inner-city Chicago. So it's very important for me to get Hoover out, because in an alternate universe, I am him.

Trump's clothing line is made in China, but West did not mention that.


During the meeting, Kanye took the opportunity to explain why he wants to abolish the 13th amendment - joking that it's an unlucky number, as well as branding it "a trap door". It's a hydrogen-powered airplane, and this is what our president should be flying in.

West also argued that Trump deserved more respect, saying: "if he don't look good, we don't look good". This is our president. He has to be the freshest, the flyest.

Talking at speed on everything from Trump's protectionist trade polices to black gun crime and "infinite amounts of universe", West left the normally talkative president nearly speechless with his performance.

"I tell you what that was pretty impressive", Trump said.

Kanye replied: "It was from the soul". "I just channeled it". "That's the best he could do for me".

West told reporters in the Oval Office that he had been asked to speak with the President about the detriments of applying stop-and-frisk policing policies in Chicago.

Trump earlier this week called on Chicago to adopt the strategy, in which large numbers of people are temporarily detained, questioned and sometimes searched for drugs and weapons.

Kanye told Trump that, "as a guy", he looks up to him and to "American industry guys, non political, no bullshit...goes in and gets it done".

West said a lack of "male energy" in the United States and in the Hillary Clinton campaign caused him to support Trump for President.
