Rap superstar Kanye West visited the Oval Office Thursday to meet with President Trump. Mr. West took the opportunity to engage in a free-wheeling press conference that left many reporters and journalists stunned.
Kanye had just showed Trump a mock-up of a hydrogen powered plane that he hopes will be the next Air Force One when he took a moment to chastise liberals who criticized him for wearing a MAGA hat. Last month, Kanye said he was “bullied” by members of the “Saturday Night Live” cast for wearing a MAGA hat.
“What I need “Saturday night live” to improve on or the liberals to improve on,” Kanye said, “Is if he don’t look good, we don’t look good. This is our president.”(RELATED: Kanye Chides Reporter For Trying To Ask More Than One Question)
Kanye pointed at a pleased Trump.
“He has to be the freshest. He has to be the flyest. The flyest planes. The best factories. And we have to make our core be empowered. We have to bring jobs into America. Because our best export is entertainment ideas.”
Trump said, “It’s true.”
Later in the comments, Trump said he could see Kanye running for president and said that Kanye can “speak for me anytime.”
