Kanye West Meets With Trump at White House, Drops F-Bomb

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".

In a almost 10-minute long speech in the Oval Office, West says he was pressured not to wear his red "Make America Great Again".

The 41-year-old entertainer spoke about why he likes Trump, and said, "I love Hillary...the campaign "I'm with her"....but there was something about when I put this hat on it made me feel like Superman".

"We feel that stop-and-frisk does not help the relationships in the city", Mr. West told the president. Trump, who recently touted stop-and-frisk, told West he is willing to talk about other solutions. That's my favorite super hero.

West ended a September 29 performance of "Saturday Night Live" by delivering an unaired pro-Trump speech that drew catcalls from the audience.

"He gets it", adding that West "could very well be" a future presidential candidate. But West himself had a caveat: "Only after 2024".

After several minutes of silence and listening intently, the president said: "I tell you what that was pretty impressive, folks. that was quite something".

"It was from the soul, I just channeled it", Mr. West said. Also attending is former National Football League great Jim Brown, a civil rights leader who has met with Trump previously, and Jared Kushner.

But the encounter veered into many more topics, a lot of them having to do with the administration's accomplishments.

When his monologue was finally finished, it was President Trump's turn to say something.

"We'll get rid of Air Force One", Mr. Trump replied.

He added, "Day one, solved one of his biggest problems. We are cheating on our country, we end up in the cheapest factory ever - the prison system". "If we could do it a different way, Kanye, I'm totally open".

West, a long-time Trump supporter, also decried the allegedly widespread expectation that black people should be Democrats.

"I love this guy right here", West said.

Fox News warned its viewers Thursday that the network could not play the entire audio of Kanye West's visit to the White House, because he let a few expletives fly. "Those in the music business say he's a genius, and that's okay with me".

When reporters started asking him questions, he quickly responded.
