Many criticized President Donald Trump for inviting Kanye West to White House where he dropped a few curse words while frantically pounding on the desk of the commander-in-chief. The headline grabbing one-liners and unusual ideas thrown at the US President were enough to keep the media and netizens busy for days.

His Apple store trip concluded, with him leaving and telling the crowd that he was going to Africa, presumably to record an album, as he told TMZ in early October that he would travel to Africa in the next couple weeks to complete his 9th studio album, "Yandhi".

As West rambled in front of the president, Kimmel joked: "Now he knows how we feel every morning when we wake up to him".

Players at that position now without a contract include Mike Gillislee, Orleans Darkwa, Terrance West and Christine Michael. Thirty-five year old Darren Sproles figured prominently in the opener, but hasn't played since due to a hamstring injury.

When Task & Purpose asked the Air Force about West's suggestion, the service declined to say whether it would consider making the iPlane One the president's official ride.

After their embrace, Kanye was heard saying that Trump makes him feel like a superhero which is totally not an unusual thing to say.

The pair's relationship has triggered considerable criticism from activists and fellow artists including Moby and John Legend, who have accused the musician of "debasing" himself and being "blind to the truth" after West called Trump his "brother".

Kanye was invited by Trump.

TMZ reports that Ye bestowed Trump with a pair of Yeezy trainers - in a size 12, apparently - and a custom hat which played on the White House incumbent's infamous line of Make America Great Again hats.

Essentially a string of numbers sufficient to prevent a date from reading your other Tinder messages when you go to the toilet, or a would be fraudster from accessing online banking when the X gets left in the back of a taxi.

Kanye West delivers jaw-dropping show in Oval Office
West's wife, Kim Kardashian West, visited the White House in September to discuss prison sentencing reform with Trump. West warned reporters that he doesn't answer questions in sound bites.

Make of that what you will. "You made a Superman cape for me". I think quite frankly what's embarrassing is the condescension you've shown to Kanye West, someone who I think is a courageous, independent thinker, a creative genius.
