Because this has been a year of mind-bending surprises, it’s only mildly eyebrow-raising that rapper Kanye West paid a visit to President-elect Donald Trump this morning. The two have been “friends for a long time,” don’t you know.
We can only speculate on why the dynamic duo met. Perhaps West wants to live in a building that comes with the hottest new amenity: Secret Service agents?
Or perhaps it was to discuss political ambitions, after all, West announced his intention for a 2020 presidential bid at the VMAs last year.
Or perhaps it was to apologize for not voting. Last month West ended a concert with a rant in which he proclaimed that if he had voted in the recent election (!), he would have voted for Trump.
All we know is that after a brief 30-minute meeting, West and Trump emerged in the lobby of Trump Tower, where they posed for photos. Trump fielded a few questions, but West stayed silent, only saying, “I just want to take a picture right now.”
According to Trump, they “discussed life.”
What a time to be alive…
