Fans have reacted to Kanye’s West’s strange White House rant, where he called himself a “crazy motherf***er”.
The rapper met with Donald Trump yesterday to discuss job opportunities for former convicts and the creation of more manufacturing factory jobs for workers in Chicago.
The 41-year-old went on a ten-minute rant at the Oval Office, where he spoke about everything from how his Make America Great Again hat made him feel like ‘superman’ to Trump’s “no bulls**t” approach to politics and his personal opinion on the 13th amendment.
The father-of-three also claimed that he was mis-diagnosed with bipolar disorder, as he told the president that a neuropsychologist told him that he wasn’t bipolar, but instead he was sleep deprived.
“He said that I actually wasn’t bipolar; I had sleep deprivation, which could cause dementia 10 to 20 years from now, where I wouldn’t even remember my son’s name,” the rapper told Trump.
Kanye was then asked by a reporter what his opinion on gun violence was, to which he responded: “The problem is illegal guns. Illegal guns is the problem, not legal guns. We have the right to bear arms.”
The father-of-three told the president what he felt about his MAGA hat, which he wrote to the meeting: “It was something about when I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman. You made a Superman. That was my – that’s my favourite superhero. And you made a Superman cape. ”
Many fans around the world have reacted to the strange meeting and some even claimed that Trump looked slightly confused during Kanye’s speech.
“Even the Orange One look a bit bemused,” one fan tweeted.
I’m not sure if Kanye West is mentally ill or just plain bonkers! If it’s the former, I surely do hope his family get him some help. Even the Orange One looked a bit bemused.

Many celebrities also commented on the rapper’s meeting with Trump as stars such as Chelsea Handler, Billy Eichner and George Takei all criticised the bizarre encounter.
Meanwhile, rapper, 50 Cent, taunted Kanye for his ‘superman’ comments about the president and shared a drawing of Trump dressed as the superhero, carrying the 41-year-old, along with the caption: “You make me feel like Superman, Obama said l was a idiot f**k these n****s lm wit you Master. Let’s make America great again LOL🤨get the strap”.
Music producer and rapper, T.I., also hit out at Kanye on Instagram, as he shared a lengthy post regarding the White House meeting and told fans: “This s**t aint cool!!! This is a move Ye made for Ye!!! This is a play to put him in a position he’d like to see himself in… we are not on his mind as he makes there comments and decisions.”
Kanye West says he thinks of Trump as a father. Guess who doesn’t think of Kanye as a son?
