'Quite Something': Kanye West Makes A Statement In The Oval Office

'Quite Something': Kanye West Makes A Statement In The Oval Office

But West quickly veered off topic as Trump, NFL great Jim Brown, senior adviser Jared Kushner, Secret Service agents and the assembled press pool looked on.

"I don't answer questions in simple soundbites".

And of course, everyone watched - even if they said they didn't want to or didn't care - because it was impossible to tear yourself away from the spectacle.

It was easy to believe from the video, judging by his animated motions while sitting across from President Trump.

West told reporters at the Oval Office he loves Clinton. "All we have is today". He would know that Kal-El is an immigrant from outer space who came to make America stronger, better, and more just. "Trump is on his hero's journey". Trump brought up his decision to commute the life sentence of Alice Johnson, a 63-year-old grandmother who'd been incarcerated since 1996 for a drug-related conviction, in early June.

Ahead of a private lunch, Mr Trump and West spoke with reporters as they sat across from each other at the Resolute desk. He also dismissed the notion that labeling Mr. Trump a racist, as some critics have done, would dissuade him from supporting the president.

West indicated that Trump has "solved" the U.S.

"It turns out that many of President Obama's critics were looking for reasons to criticize him".

On the "Make America Great Again" hat, Mr.

West isn't the only one in his family to meet with the president over political issues.

The Grammy victor alluded to the president as a father figure: "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", West said while appearing alongside Trump. "That was quite something".

After a week of extensive interviews, repetitive rally speeches and a torrent of tweets, President Donald Trump, a fan of a good media spectacle, temporarily ceded the glare of the spotlight on Thursday to someone even more comfortable with it: Kanye West. "I love Hillary, I love everyone right, but the campaign "I'm with her" just didn't make me feel as a guy ... that could play catch with his son".
