Kanye West met US President Donald Trump at the Oval Office in White House, days after he received flak online for donning a MAGA hat and praising Trump. The meet did not surprise anyone, giving that even his wife Kim Kardashian met the POTUS at the White House. However, what happened in the televised meet made it the top trending topic online. From hugging the president to revealing the password of his phone, it all got everyone talking, and prompting jokes, memes and political commentary.
The rapper delivered a rambling, multipart monologue Thursday sitting across the president. He even went on to say, “You made a Superman cape for me,” and that Trump “stopped” the war in North Korea region!
Naturally, netizens were flabbergasted by the meeting. While some couldn’t stop underlining how problematic the meeting was, others took solace in cracking some jokes and sharing memes and GIFs to draw parallels. And some wondered if West would contest for presidency next!
Was Kanye West brought in to make the President look sane?

Let’s all take a moment to bow our heads, and pray for #KanyeWest
God restore his mind.

If that rap thing fizzles out, #KanyeWest has a future as a speechwriter.
