Kanye West hops on table at Apple store, gives 'keynote' speech

Trump's stunned silence as Kanye rants in White House

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.

Inching ever closer to a Cabinet position with each passing day, Billboard now reports that Kanye West will attend the signing ceremony for the new Music Modernization Act while swinging by the White House Thursday.

Donning a signature red "Make America Great Again" (MAGA) hat, West, sitting just feet away from the president at the Resolute Desk, talked freely about mental health, prison reform, and improving life for African-Americans.

"That was quite something", said Trump, who was joined in the Oval Office by Hall of Fame NFL running back Jim Brown, who smiled and sat quietly through most of event.

In a almost 10-minute long speech in the Oval Office, West says he was pressured not to wear his red "Make America Great Again". "They tried to scare me to not wear this hat", he said.

West proceeded to pitch Trump on a hydrogen powered plane that he said should replace Air Force One. "That's my favorite superhero, and you made a Superman cape for me".

Moving on to the topics of schools, West said: "Sometimes people say, 'This kid has ADD [Attention Deficit Disorder], this kid has ADD'".

Rapper and producer Kanye West's surreal speech to US President Donald Trump during a televised meeting at the White House today has left heads spinning.

"You know, my dad and my mum separated, so I didn't have a lot of male energy in my home". "He's Kanye West, so all these things about [Trump] calling people "dogs" and saying people "coming from s**thole countries" [can be overlooked]".

"I tell you what, that was pretty impressive", Trump said.

He told reporters: "Trump is on his hero's journey right now".

West, a long-time Trump supporter, also decried the allegedly widespread expectation that all black people should be Democrats.

It's official: Kanye West has a awful iPhone passcode. "I just channeled it".

The rapper is married to Kim Kardashian West, the reality star and cosmetics mogul, who visited the White House in May to advocate sentencing reform.

In the Oval Office on Thursday, West - who has a new album coming out - again flirted with the idea of a presidential run, but "only after 2024".

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