Here are all the weirdest things that happened when Kanye West met Trump at the White House
When Kanye West followed in the footsteps of his wife and headed to the White House to meet President Donald Trump, we all knew things were about to get weird. Officially, the 41-year-old was invited for lunch to discuss prison reform, but it was anyone's guess as to how the meeting was actually going to pan out.
And we were all spot on. While prison reform was discussed, a number of utterly bizarre things also went down, with Kanye heaping praise on Trump for "solving" North Korea, suggesting the president should replace Air Force One with a plane that hasn't even been made yet and going on a 10-minute long rant which used sci-fi to try and convince Trump to free a notorious gang leader. Hey, it's Kanye - what did you expect?
He showed the world his iPhone password
At one point in the meeting, the rapper grabbed his iPhone and - in full view of the entire world - typed in his password. You'd think Kanye, being one of the biggest celebrities out there, would have a complex code to save people ever finding out his secrets if his phone happened to be stolen. As it turned out, his password is actually incredibly simple: 000000.
He claimed his MAGA hat made him feel like superman
Arriving at the meeting with his Make America Great Again hat firmly on his head, the 41-year-old explained to Trump why he loved it, saying: "They tried to scare me not to wear this hat, but it gives some power in some way ... It was something about when I put this hat on. … It made me feel like Superman. That’s my favourite superhero. And you made a Superman cape for me."
He told Trump he should fly a hydrogen-fueled plane called iPlane-1
The Gold Digger star suggested the former reality TV star replace the presidential plane, a Boeing 747, with a hydrogen-fueled plane called iPlane-1. There are a few problems though: namely that the plane currently doesn't exist and allegedly remains decades away from being a viable option.
At the time, Kayne told Trump: "We’re gonna have Apple, an American company, work on this plane with us." However, the photo of the hydrogen iPlane is allegedly a 2012 concept from an industrial designer named Shabtai Hirshberg, who told CNBC he no idea West was pitching the idea in the White House and insists he never suggested that Apple build the plane. Oh, and it was never meant to be fueled by hydrogen. Awkward...
He praised the president for "solving" the North Korea conflict
"I like the North Korea," he told Trump. "You stopped the war. Day One, solved one of his biggest problems. We solved one of the biggest problems." Err, was the North Korean conflict solved and we all didn't notice? As far as we all know, Kim Jong Un has still not promised to dismantle North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs.
He used sci-fi to try and convince Trump to free a notorious gang leader
Asking the Republican leader to release a notorious Chicago gang leader, Larry Hoover, from jail, the Stronger rapper used bizarre logic to make his point, stating:
"So there’s a theory that – there’s infinite amounts of universe and there’s alternate universe so it’s very important for me to get [Larry] Hoover out, because in an alternate universe, I am him and I have to go and get him free."
He stunned Trump
After Kanye did a 10-minute long rant, a gobsmacked Trump simply said: "That was quite something," before sharing the most awkward hug in the world with his visitor.
He became - most likely - the first person to publicly say the word ‘motherf**ker’ in the Oval Office
He described himself as a "crazy motherf**ker", saying: ‘Trump is on his hero’s journey right now. ‘You might not have expected a crazy motherf**ker like Kanye running up to support.’
