Hogan Gidley, White House deputy press secretary, said the president would host a "working lunch in the private dining room off the Oval Office" with West and Brown.

West continued: "Let's stop worrying about the future, all we have is today. He might not have thought he'd have a insane motherf-ker like me" in the White House, he said in an agitated, rapid-fire delivery.

He said that his dream was to have both Trump and Colin Kaepernick wearing a "Make America Great" hat. "You make a Superman cape for me", he gushed at Trump, who was sitting with his desk between him and Kanye, and seemed happier for it. "That's my favorite superhero".

Rapper Kanye West had a few things to say when he stopped by the White House for a visit with President Donald Trump Thursday.

This White House has presented no shortage of magical television moments.

After West spoke for about 10 minutes, often showering Trump with praise, Trump himself said, "I tell you what, that was pretty impressive. That was quite something".

West said he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but then that he was misdiagnosed, and was simply sleep-deprived. The president said the session "was just set up to be a lunch of two people I like".

National Football League legend Jim Brown also attended the meeting.

But the encounter veered into many more topics, a lot of them having to do with the administration's accomplishments.

A prominent Trump supporter, West has also expressed support for Kaepernick, the NFL free agent who in 2016 became the first player to kneel during the national anthem to protest social injustice. He's a smart cookie. "We are one country". "He might not have thought he'd have a insane mother-fucker like (me)". He again floated the wild accusation that The New York Times actually wrote that anonymous op-ed themselves, saying there's a "very good chance" the Times made it up, although they "probably" didn't. "I love this guy!" he said.

Inching ever closer to a Cabinet position with each passing day, Billboard now reports that Kanye West will attend the signing ceremony for the new Music Modernization Act while swinging by the White House Thursday.

At the end of the weirdest Oval Office meeting ever, Kanye gave Trump a hug.

When reporters started asking him questions, he quickly responded.
