Kanye West defends support for Trump, in front of Trump

During a meeting in front of reporters, the rapper launched into a 10-minute monologue, leaving the usually bombastic Mr Trump looking bemused.

It was a surreal scene even by the standards of a nonconventional White House.

Music chief sat down in the White House Oval Office and said his MAGA hat feels like a Superman cape.

"Topics of discussions will include manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence, and what can be done to reduce violence in Chicago".

While Trump has been shunned by much of the Hollywood establishment, he has a fan in West, who tweeted earlier this year that the two share "dragon energy". He walked over to Trump and held out his phone, to show him a picture of what he said was "the i-plane 1 - a hydrogen-powered airplane -this is what the president should be flying in".

Both Brown and West have been vocal supporters of the president.

"You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him".

He also revealed he had been diagnosed - wrongly, he said - with bipolar disorder.

Kanye West has met Donald Trump in the Oval Office wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat - saying it made him feel like "superman".

On "male energy": "My dad and my mom separated so there was not a lot of male energy in my home and also I'm married to a family where, you know, there's not a lot of male energy".

'You a** kissing and bootlicking on a whole new level and I refuse to associate myself with something so vile, weak, and inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE! "So we made an updated hat that said 'Make America Great, ' and Trump wore the hat so he is open to adjusting and listening", West said, according to video posted to Twitter by CNN reporter Caroline Kelly.

It'd be cool to have "Trump factories", West added.

"That was quite something", Trump finally said to laughter from astonished senior aides and journalists at the end of the soliloquy, which West punctuated with bangs of his fist on the legendary Resolute desk, used by presidents since the 1880s.

"It was from the soul", West responded.

West accuses black people of being "caught up" in racism: Thirteen years after his jaw-dropping declaration that "George Bush doesn't care about black people", during a live telethon dedicated to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, West says he fell prey to a "victimized mentality".

"That's really nice", Trump said, beaming toward the cameras behind the right shoulder of the man they call Yeezus.

Most of her criticism was directed toward the president himself, who hosted the meeting while Hurricane Michael cut through Florida and headed toward Georgia.

"We have to stop pretending... like this is normal", Lemon said.
