Kanye West and Jim Brown stopped by The White House, last Thursday, October 11, 2018, after being invited by President Trump, for lunch and to discuss prison reform, jobs for African-Americans and Chicago violence. It turned into an impromptu press conference with the three men.
West began the much-anticipated sit-down by praising Trump’s efforts in North Korea saying, “On day one you solved one of [Obama’s] biggest troubles.”
The conversation turned to West discussing the lack of support he received from his Hollywood cohorts with regards to his support of the president.
“They tried to scare me to not wear this hat,” West said, referring to his “Make America Great Again” hat he wore to the meeting and on a recent appearance on “Saturday Night Live.”
“When I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman, my favorite superhero. You made a Superman cape for me.”
The rapper went on to chastise “SNL” and other liberal-leaning media members for their portrayal and constant demeaning of President Trump.
“What I need ‘SNL’ and liberals to improve on is, if he don’t look good, we don’t look good. This is our President!” West said.
Regarding Chicago’s gun violence problems, “Illegal guns is the problem, not legal guns, we have the right to bear arms,” West said bluntly.
Trump continued to compliment the West, who talked about spreading love throughout the country.
“He can speak for me any time he wants, he’s a smart cookie,” President Trump said. “He gets it.”
West discussed many topics that included everything from bringing manufacturing back to our country, his personal business deals, ending the “stop-and-frisk” policy in Chicago and the 13th Amendment (the amendment that abolished slavery).
Kanye said his 10 minute speech was “from the soul, and I just channeled it.”
“That was quite something,” said President Trump, who was joined in the Oval Office by Hall of Fame NFL running back Jim Brown, who smiled and sat quietly through most of event.
Kanye clearly came to the White House with a lot on his mind, chiefly his support for the president.
“I had the balls to put on this hat,” Kanye said in defending the red “Make America Great Again” hat that he wore for the meeting.
“People expect that if you’re black you have to be a democrat,” he said. “What I need Saturday Night Live to improve on, what I need the liberals to improve on is if he don’t look good, we don’t look good,” Kanye said, gesturing at Trump.
West said that when he tells liberals that he likes Trump, they tell him, “Oh, but he’s racist.” His voice rising, West said, “You think racism can control me? That don’t stop me, that’s an invisible wall.”
Before they adjourned for a roasted chicken lunch, Kanye stood up, walked over to Trump and gave him a bear hug.
“I love this guy right here. Let me give this guy a hug,” he said.
President Trump responded by saying, “That’s really nice. That’s from the heart.”
During lunch they discussed prison reform, the African American unemployment rate and the surge in violence in West’s hometown of Chicago, according to a statement from White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.
Kanye West and Jim Brown are two amazing individuals.
They ignore and wade through all of the pretentious static from the left, while following their own minds in the pursuit of making our country better and the lives of many African-Americans better.
They understand that President Trump isn’t just in this for a photo-op or to blow smoke. He is a person that actually produces results and gets things done.
When asked if he would run for president, Kanye West replied, “Only after, 2024.”
“Let’s stop worrying about the future…, all we have is today,” West added. “Trump is on his hero’s journey right now.”
Afterwards, standing in front of the White House, where he met with President Trump, Jim Brown was asked about the issue of NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem, and he had a red-blooded American response. “That flag is my flag … I don’t think that we should take knees in protest instead of be standing up for our flag.”
“I can be very blunt about taking a knee. See, first of all, I’m an American. That flag is my flag. Things that I’ve overcome in this country have allowed me to make me a better person. I don’t think that we should take knees in protest instead of be standing up for our flag. I think we should work out our problems as a family. And that’s what I would advocate to my children and to all the young people that I deal with.”
Brown concluded by saying, “I am an American. That flag is my flag. And I want to represent it that way.”
Brown added before he left that he felt, “Their White House visit was very positive,” and that he had “zero regrets about the Oval Office meeting today with President Trump and Kanye, saying “it was an incredible opportunity and he’s thankful to 45.”
The “biased fake news media,” and other liberal entertainers, of course, could not help themselves, and they had to attack the meeting, Kanye West and President Trump.
Saturday Night Live wasted no time, creating a parody of the meeting as well.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo said, “Trump looked like he was thinking racist thoughts while talking to Kanye West.”
What? What is he talking about? Did Cuomo ever make any similar comments when President Obama sat down and had a beer with the white police officer he had previously bad mouthed and offended?
Do you hear crickets? I do.
Cuomo also criticized the media for giving the meeting all the hype that they did, acting like it was an important summit between two world leaders.
They covered the meeting, like they should have. All of the “summit between world leaders” stuff is all in your imagination Chris.
“Why fan the flames of the foolish?” he then asked.
Don’t even get me started about “fanning the flames of the foolish.” CNN has a long and undistinguished track record for dragging a laundry list of fools onto its stage for commentary.
Cuomo then accused the president of not caring about West’s wellbeing. “He’s just concerned about getting his black approval numbers above a pathetic 10 percent.”
Wow! CNN should market Cuomo as the next “Long Island Medium!” Although I think he’s pretty low on that 10 percent black approval number.
CNN host Don Lemon went on a 5-minute tirade against President Trump for hosting the rapper in the Oval Office with a room full of cameras on Thursday. He accused the president of “exploiting” West and said that the rapper put on a “minstrel show” for Trump.
A “minstrel show?” No racist intonations there!
Lemon asked people to imagine if President Barack Obama had Kanye West in the Oval Office what the reaction to that would be by networks like FOX News.
Ya, think about it. I don’t think anyone would really have cared, considering how Obama loved to regularly rub elbows with his entertainment and Hollywood friends.
The “CNN Tonight” host said the media needs to take the cameras away from West because the man is in need of mental help and it is obvious that he needs a father figure. Lemon said West’s mom is “rolling over in her grave” right now. He said he spoke to a family friend who said West’s late mother would be “terribly disturbed” by this.
Wow! Another contender for the CNN’s version of the next “Long Island Medium!”
“He needs a father figure,” Lemon suggested. “He needs someone to help him and to guide him and he needs a hug more than anything.”
Can these guys get anymore disparaging and denigrating?
Rapper T.I., whoever he is, said Kanye was, “A puppet,” and he was “Ashamed to be associated with Kanye West.”
“Your ass kissing and bootlicking is on a whole new level, and I refuse to associate myself with something so vile, weak an inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of all our people,” T.I. continued.
So this “T.I.” person is apparently now the spokesperson for all black people? I was not aware of this…, but it is good to know.
“If you listen closely you can hear the tears of our ancestors hit the floor,” T.I. concluded.
Sooo dramatic “T.I.” Your ancestors do have a lot to cry about, but Kanye West would not be high on the list in my opinion.
“All I can say is… I’ve reached my limits. This is my stop, I’m officially done with Trump and his little cookie boy!”
He then went on to call West a “sambo” for meeting with President Trump.
Sooo patronizing T.I. and the “biased fake news media” loves to just proliferate all of this racist character assassination.
One of CNN’s contributors, Tara Setmeyer, referred to Kanye West as Donald Trump’s “token negro,” during a panel hosted by Don Lemon. She also made some disparaging comments about his mental health.
“He’s an attention whore, like the president,” she said. “He’s all of a sudden now the model spokesperson. He’s the token negro of the Trump administration. This is ridiculous and no one should be taking Kanye West seriously. He clearly has issues.”
Yes, we know, Tara. Anyone who walks off the leftist plantation will get unceremoniously attacked and shunned by the liberal propaganda machine.
Another panelist, former Congressman Bakari Sellers, used the same type of language when describing Kanye. “Kanye West is what happens when negroes don’t read,” he said.
So, just to sum things up here, Kanye West has been called: dumb, mentally ill, a house negro, a token negro, a sambo, a puppet, a little cookie boy, a minstrel, and even a white supremacist!
Isn’t it amazing what kind of stuff CNN and its minions are able to get away with in the defense of the leftist narrative?
The left’s propagandizing and reaction to anything President Trump does is so pathetic and so predictable.
Like I have said before, we’re paying attention now “biased fake news media.” You can say whatever you want, but we’re wise to your intentions, and you’re just basically preaching to your own confused and anti-American choir.
