'That was something': Donald Trump left speechless after Kanye visits White House

Such distinctions belonged to Kanye West.

Well, it finally happened - Kanye West's White House meeting with President Donald Trump took place in the Oval Office on Thursday, and it seems like their conversation was just as unusual as you might guess.

West also banged his fist on the Oval Office's famed Resolute Desk and discussed his bipolar diagnosis. The commutation came as a result of the influence of Kim Kardashian West, Kanye's wife, who visited the White House to discuss the case with the president.

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.

It was easy to believe from the video, judging by his animated motions while sitting across from President Trump.

West has been publicly supportive of Trump since the president was elected, tweeting a photo of himself sporting a "Make America Great Again" this April and lauding Trump during the closing moments of a "Saturday Night Live" appearance in September.

"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", he said.

"It was something about when I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman", West said. West has in recent days drawn a large amount of criticism for his decision to corner the cast members of "Saturday Night Live" and deliver a pro-Trump speech off camera.

"I love this guy right here!"

"I felt that I knew people who voted for Trump that were celebrities that were scared to say that they liked him", he said.

The tête-à-tête also comes the same week as West's longtime rival, Taylor Swift, entered the political arena for the first time, encouraging her fans to register to vote and endorsing Tennessee Democratic Senate candidate Phil Bredesen and House candidate Jim Cooper, also a Democrat.

Asked about his comments in 2005 that President George W. Bush didn't "care about black people" after Hurricane Katrina, West said that "We need to care about all people" and that he "was programed to think in a victimized mentality". But he said "this hat, it gives me power".

"That was quite something", Mr Trump said at the end of West's freewheeling soliloquy. "Trump is on his hero's journey right now", West said.

"It is very unfair to African-Americans".

Apple is great at making phones, maybe let the company create a reliable self-driving auto before we let them take to the skies. "He might not have thought he'd have a insane mother-fucker like (me)". During the course of the conversation, 'Ye claimed that racism was just a tool liberals use to control Black people.
