Kanye West Goes On 10-Minute Rant During White House Visit

President-elect Donald Trump and Kanye West pose for

Rap star Kanye West loves Donald Trump and proved it in dramatic fashion Thursday, leaping from his seat at a White House meeting to hug the president. 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 praised President Donald Trump as the embodiment of "male energy" and someone on a "hero's journey".

Mr Trump said he'd been willing to "look at it", adding, "they have to do something". "He might not have thought he'd have a insane motherf-ker like me" in the White House, he said in an agitated, rapid-fire delivery.

While West probably settled on the simple passcode so he can log into his phone as quickly as possible, it's notable that the controversial rapper, who has received threats in the past over his support of Trump, doesn't care enough to make his phone more secure.

In an interview with Fox News before the meeting, Trump said the justice system was "very unfair to African-Americans it's very unfair to everybody".

During the 10-minute rambling address, West dropped the "f-bomb" and complained he had been pressured to stop wearing his red "Make America Great Again" hat.

Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown, who has previously discussed issues facing the African-American community with Trump, the President's daughter and adviser, Ivanka Trump, and her husband and White House adviser Jared Kushner, were also in attendance.

Apparently, during the Presidential campaign, Kanye felt more connected to the Donald just because Clinton's slogan was 'I'm with Her'. "You gave me the heart to go to adidas because at adidas, when I went in in 2015, we were a $14 billion company losing $2 billion a year".

"It was from the soul", West replied. West chipped in to say "Only after, it would have to be 2024". "We do need reform".

Following Kanye West and President Trump's meeting on Thursday - in which the "Ye" rapper covered everything from Superman, the 13th and Second amendments to North Korea - celebrities took to Twitter to voice their distaste with West's visit to the White House.

Trump brought up his decision to commute the life sentence of Alice Johnson, a 63-year-old grandmother who'd been incarcerated since 1996 for a drug-related conviction, in early June. Police officers are just like us, he said.

West's "terrific" wife opened his eyes, Trump said.

The lunch portion of the meeting was to include a Caprese salad, roasted chicken, fingerling potatoes and asparagus, according to the White House press office.
