Kanye West Upstages Trump With a 10-Minute Oval Office Rant

Kanye West Upstages Trump With a 10-Minute Oval Office Rant

Or when he dropped F-bombs in the Oval Office during a 10-minute soliloquy.

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".

"I brought a GIF with me right here", West said in the Oval Office on Thursday during a meeting as he turned his phone over to the president.

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. He started showing that he actually had power, he wasn't just one of a monolithic voice, that he could wrap people around.

"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", Kanye said. "And this is what our president should be flying in".


Trump and West talked a range of topics including reducing violence in Chicago, which is where the rapper grew up.

While President Trump has approved of Kanye's continuing support (he called 'Ye a "smart cookie" during the meeting), Yeezy made some comments that would seemingly make a lot of his fans pretty upset. "You made a Superman cape for me, also, as someone who looks up to you. looks up to American industry guys".

Trump had said that "stop-and-frisk works".

The rapper referred to his own Oval Office opus as "a fine wine", adding "it has complex notes to it".

"We feel that stop-and-frisk does not help the relationships in the city", Mr. West told the president.


At the end of West's lengthy, sometimes-hard-to-follow dialogue, even Trump seemed at a loss.

Kanye's visit follows by several months a similar trip to the White House Kim Kardashian West, who met with Trump on May 30 and persuaded him to grant clemency to Alice Johnson, who was serving a life sentence for a nonviolent drug charge in Tennessee.

He criticized liberals who are pressuring him to oppose Mr. Trump.

After West's speech ended, Trump was left momentarily and uncharacteristically speechless as advisers, including Kushner and Ivanka Trump, looked on. The two discussed multicultural issues, education and violence in Chicago, West tweeted at the time.

"I'm here to serve", Brown said when the president asked him how he felt. West shot back, "Only after 2024". However, Kanye claimed he didn't vote, but wishes he would've voted for the current president.
