Kanye West: Trump is on a 'hero's journey' for America

President-elect Donald Trump and Kanye West pose for

There was a moment during rapper Kanye West's 10-minute Oval Office soliloquy on, um, hydrogen planes, alternative universes and the 13th Amendment (among LOTS of other things) when the cameras zoomed in on President Donald Trump's face.

In a almost 10-minute-long speech in the Oval Office, West said he was pressured not to wear his red "Make America Great Again" hat, and said he has felt pressure to be a Democrat because he is black.

He said that Trump had given him (we assume metaphorically) "a Superman cape" to help do good. "He has to be the freshest, the flyest, the flyest planes". "But the campaign "I'm With Her" did not make me feel like a guy that could play catch with his son", West complained. "I just channeled it", the musician said, adding - to further gasps - that Trump "might not have expected to have a insane motherfucker like Kanye West supporting him".

"Let's stop worrying about the future all we have is today", he continued.

West, a long-time Trump supporter, also decried the allegedly widespread expectation that all black people should be Democrats. In return, Mr. Trump has lauded the rapper on Twitter, and said he has been helpful with support among African-Americans. "I think it would be cool to have Trump factories", he suggested.

President Donald Trump will have lunch Thursday with rapper Kanye West, who he calls a longtime friend.

West grew up and recently said he planned to return, according to the person briefed on the meeting.

Wow. If you were wondering which ego was bigger, we have a victor!

West replied: "It was from the soul".

"There is something about when I put this [MAGA] hat on that makes me feel like Superman!". Also attending is former National Football League great Jim Brown, a civil rights leader who has met with Trump previously. "He might not have thought he'd have a insane mother-fucker like (me)". He's been a great guy, he's a smart cookie, smart. "I just channelled it", the musician said.

West said he "loved Hillary" Clinton, Trump's 2016 Democratic rival, because he loves everyone, but said he connected with Trump's "male energy".

He told Trump he had stopped a potential war with North Korea.

Seizing the spotlight from the typically centre-stage president, West dropped the F-word, floated policy proposals - and went in for a hug.

Earlier this year, Kim Kardashian met him to discuss prison reform issues, which resulted in convicted drug dealer Alice Marie Johnson being granted clemency.
