Kanye West held court in the Oval Office in front of President Donald Trump on Thursday.
TV cameras captured the encounter, during which the rapper and designer mused about politics, racism, his admiration for Trump, modern culture, MAGA hats, and hydrogen-powered planes.
Trump sat across from West at the Resolute Desk while the musician launched into extended monologues about life and art as the world watched, and commented, on social media.
Kanye is not been shy about his support for Trump, who remains a deeply unpopular president nearly two years into his first term. His commentary about the president has garnered both praise and rebuke from voters, fans, pundits, fellow artists, and more.
But Kanye is unbothered by the criticism. Speaking about his meeting with Trump, the rapper said, “It is good energy in this.”
