Kanye's Lunch With Trump: Adidas and Hydrogen-Powered Planes

Lifestyle       by Asma Malik | Published

After a week of extensive interviews, repetitive rally speeches and a torrent of tweets, President Donald Trump, a fan of a good media spectacle, temporarily ceded the glare of the spotlight on Thursday to someone even more comfortable with it: Kanye West.

After a quick lunch, Trump and Kanye will probably sit down to hash out West's 2024 campaign strategy, because that's where all this is really headed, isn't it? Try setting up your iPhone with a passcode like West's, for instance, and Apple (AAPL) warns you that passcode - as well as passcodes with all the same number or "123456" - can be easily guessed. "We know that some people don't give you as much as maybe they should sometimes".

The pair then posed for photos and West, who did not cast a vote in the 2016 presidential election but has been a vocal supporter of Trump, hugged the president.

Kanye West met with President Donald Trump at the Oval Office in the White House on Thursday, where the rapper touched on a variety of topics including mental health and prison reform. "That was quite something". West acknowledged that some people have an issue with the word "again" in the trademark Trump slogan, and said he prefers simply "Make America Great". "He might not have thought he'd have a insane motherf**ker like (me)".

The award-winning musician has taken fire from other celebrities for his support for Trump, particularly after his recent appearance on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" show.

When a reporter asked about gun control, Mr. West said, "The problem is illegal guns, not legal guns". "You are tasting a fine wine", he added. "My own friends. But this hat, it gives me, it gives me power in a way", he said.




At least Trump handled West's bad idea. dare I say, gracefully? When the New York Times' Maggie Haberman first broke the news of the upcoming meeting earlier this week, she reported that West was specifically interested in speaking about improving employment prospects for former convicts and creating jobs in his hometown of Chicago.

West spoke to reporters for almost 10 minutes in the Oval Office.

Trump says he'd been willing to "look at it", and says, "They have to do something".

And Mr. West did indeed talk about that-a little. And the fact that a woman was running for president made you so insecure in your masculinity that just the very concept of women supporting other women meant you felt like you couldn't play ball with your son?

"It may not be good for America, but it's damn good for CBS.Man, who would have expected the ride we're all having right now?".
