Kanye West Rambles Like Trump In White House Meeting

Prison reform, Chicago violence on menu for Kanye-Trump White House lunch

He told reporters: "Trump is on his hero's journey right now. He might not have thought he'd have a insane motherf-er like (me)".

His stump speech includes repeated boasts about record low unemployment for African Americans and he is touting the need for reform of the prison system, where blacks are about 38 per cent of inmates, despite being only 13 per cent of the U.S. population.

The rapper also ruled out a presidential bid "until 2024", instead voicing his support for Mr Trump.

West was not the only musician at the White House on Thursday.

Kanye also said that he told Trump he was going to create a factory in Chicago called Larry's - a homage to Gangster Disciples leader, Larry Hoover - where he'll hire ex-inmates to make his "Make America Great" hat as well as other items.

Speier told CNN that she thought Trump's meeting with a celebrity during the storm "really speaks to his lack of leadership, his lack of empathy, his lack of recognition of what the priority should be in this country".

In an interview with Fox News before the meeting, Trump said the justice system was "very unfair to African-Americans it's very unfair to everybody". "As soon as he tried to turn his life around, they hit him with six life sentences".

The visit was only the latest headline-stealing trip to Washington for the West family. He recently wore a "Free Hoover" sweatshirt in promotional material ahead of his controversial appearance on "Saturday Night Live".

Kavanaugh to hear first arguments as Supreme Court justice
Kavanaugh's wife and two daughters were in seats reserved for justices' guests, along with retired Justice Anthony Kennedy. He later expressed regret over some of his comments.

Palestinian kills two Israelis in West Bank shooting: army
A woman aged 54 was also found wounded and in moderate condition, the medical services said. The situation in the zone of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict escalated in September 2015.

Drew Brees becomes NFL all-time yards passing leader
He has also led the league in completions six times, in completion percentage five times and in passing touchdowns four times. Brees is roughly 5,000 yards ahead of the next active player on the all-time passing list - No. 4 Tom Brady at 67,077.

West will have lunch with the President at the White House and meet with Kushner, according to White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders. "He might not have thought he'd have a insane motherf-er like Kanye West" to support him.

So who knows what this meeting could bring?

After Kanye's speech, Trump, not usually one to be silent, said quietly, "That was quite something". Police officers are just like us, he said. And Kanye is a smart guy.

"The problem is illegal guns, not legal guns", West responded.

Although Kanye and Kid Rock have not vocalized their opinion about the bill, we have no doubt that the two were present to show their utmost support for Trump.

Trump said they'd discuss the matter and he'd keep an open mind.

But fans are not happy about the social media stunt, which came after the artist made headlines for his outspoken support of USA president Donald Trump on Friday.

CNN reporter Caroline Kelly was also in the store, and she posted a video of West's speech.
