Has the Oval Office ever seen anything quite like it?
Kanye Wests visit to The White House yesterday (11 October) was always going to make headlines, and, true to form, it was Kanye himself who dominated the presidential sit-down as he delivered a rambling 10-minute speech in front of bewildered reporters.
His prolonged endorsement of President Donald Trump seems to know no bounds, with Ye keen at one point during his soliloquy to express his fondness for Trumps infamous line of Make America Great Again hats.
Kanye explained that his friends had initially tried to scare him into not rocking a MAGA hat in public – but, he said, the hat gives me power, in a way.
I love Hillary, I love everyone, right? Kanye continued about Trumps 2016 rival. But the campaign, Im With Her, just didnt make me feel as a guy that didnt get to see my dad all the time, like a guy that could play catch with his son.
He then turned to Trump. There was something about when I put this hat on it made me feel like Superman.
You made a Superman – thats my favourite superhero – you made a Superman cape for me.
As well as that superhero comparison, Kanye also offered Trump a quick glimpse at his design for a new Air Force One – a prospective build he calls the iPlane 1.
The rappers speech was so incredible to behold that even the President himself was rendered speechless when he finally finished speaking – thats something only a superhero could achieve, right?
