Kanye West continues to cook up a storm in the media, mostly due to his support and affiliation with the president, Donald Trump, who most in the entertainment industry despise and frequently criticize. During his latest visit to the Oval Office on Thursday, Kanye spoke about mental health, his family, the universe, and how much he likes Donald.
Kanye, wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat, said that “they try to scare me into not wearing this hat.” The Ye rapper argued it gives him power in that way, comparing it to his “Superman cape.”
The Yeezy creator was supposed to be at the White House to talk about criminal justice, gang violence, and other crime-related subjects, but instead, talked extensively about his personal life and other topics for nearly 10 minutes straight.
The fashion designer/rapper was alongside Jim Brown, the former NFL player, who was also at the Oval Office to talk about changing the criminal justice system and the penal system.
The artist noted during his speech that he was born into a family without a lot of male energy, and he married into a family without a lot of male energy.
West also talked about his recent diagnosis with bipolar disorder, claiming that he believed it was simply a result of being sleep-deprived. Following his speech, Donald told Kanye that “was pretty impressive.”
As fans of the Grammy Award winner know, he has outspokenly supported the president since 2016. However, Kanye claimed he didn’t vote, but wishes he would’ve voted for the current president.
Just last month, the rapper, once again, sparked controversy when he gave a long speech on American politics during an appearence on Saturday Night Live broadcasted by NBC.
Kanye supported and defended the president, explaining that Americans are in need of a dialogue, rather than partisanship and political attacks.
