Trevor Noah weighs in on Kanye's visit to the White House

President Trump calls Kanye West a 'genius' ahead of their meeting with Jim Brown bill signing with Kid Rock

President Trump waves upon arrival at the White House on Wednesday evening

As expected, the highly publicized event produced its fair share of puzzling moments.

Rapper Kanye West speaks during a meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, U.S., October 11, 2018. West referenced the iconic comic book character again when he discussed his preference for wearing a MAGA hat.

However, in front of reporters, West went off on a litany of subjects, including how his "Make America Great Again" hat makes him feel like Superman.

"That was quite something", Trump finally said to laughter from astonished senior aides and journalists at the end of the soliloquy, which West punctuated with bangs of his fist on the legendary Resolute desk, used by presidents since the 1880s.

A number of fans speculated that the musician got his initials the wrong way around, but Sportsmail understand that they stand for "West-Kardashian".

From where I was standing amid the forest of reporters and cameras, it was hard not to notice in the backdrop the prominent portrait of Andrew Jackson that has been on display since Trump moved in. "So we made an updated hat that said 'Make America Great, ' and Trump wore the hat so he is open to adjusting and listening", West said, according to video posted to Twitter by CNN reporter Caroline Kelly. He has to be the freshest, the flyest, have the flyest planes.

Added West: "If he don't look good, we don't look good".

Kanye turned to the issue of racism, saying "As black people, we also need to take responsibility for what we're doing".

Thursday's visit will mark Kanye's second sit-down with Trump - the Chicago, Illinois native previously showed his support for the leader by stopping by his Trump Tower offices in NY shortly after he was elected into office in November, 2016.

"It hurts us because we need to focus on who were are today", he said. I actually feel bad for him. The reason 'Ye chose to ditch the "again" is an acknowledgment to the fact that America still needs to put in some work.

West discussed many topics in a rambling dialogue that included everything from bringing manufacturing to the country, his personal business deals, ending stop-and-frisk in Chicago and the 13th Amendment. "Not legal guns. We have the right to bear arms".
