Kanye West Praises Trump During 10-Minute Oval Office Tirade

HeadlineOct 12, 2018
H5 kanye trump

Kanye West launched into a 10-minute expletive-riddled rant at the White House Thursday during a meeting with President Trump, during what was ostensibly an Oval Office meeting to discuss employment and workforce training programs. This is a clip of Kanye West, who was wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat.

Kanye West: “But there’s times where, you know, it’s something about—you know, I love Hillary. I love everyone, right? But the campaign ’I’m with her’ just didn’t make me feel, as a guy that didn’t get to see my dad all the time, like a guy that could play catch with his son. It was something about—when I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman. You made a Superman.”

Kanye West has come under intense criticism over the last year for praising President Trump and for claiming during a TMZ interview that “slavery was a choice.”
