We probably shouldn't be surprised by anything now, but for some reason, Kanye West has been spotted at Trump Tower and you're not the only one that's confused by it. You may remember that West recently came out in support of the new president-elect during a concert at his Saint Pablo tour. "I told y’all I didn’t vote, right?” he told the crowd. “But if I would’ve voted, I would’ve voted for Trump.” He also went on to praise Trump's debating and speaking style, saying " I actually think that his approach was absolutely genius, because it f*cking worked.”
Prior to West's public praise, Trump had showed some love for the rapper himself, telling supporters at a rally how "great" he is. "You know what? I will never say bad about him, you know why? Because he loves Trump!" said the businessman. "He goes around saying, 'Trump is my all-time hero.' He says it to everybody! So Kanye West — I love him."
West's visit to the new politician's famous Trump Tower is causing a flurry of speculation. Is a cabinet position in the works for 'Ye? Hey, with the way 2016 has gone, you never know. Is it simply a friendly chat between the two men? Will Trump ask West to perform at inauguration? Did West call Trump or did Trump invite West? What advice will West undoubtedly share with Trump?
Here are some of the best Twitter reactions to the visit so far:
1. Priorities, Man
Considering Trump's insistence that he doesn't need daily intelligence briefings, it is strange that he he's got time to meet with celebrities.
2. Hey Kanye, Did You Forget?
The lyrics to "Power" seem strange now.
3. This Cabinet Position Would Actually Be a Great Fit
Kanye is serious about interior design, after all. This is the man who once tweeted, “I specifically ordered persian rugs with cherub imagery!!! What do I have to do to get a simple persian rug with cherub imagery uuuugh”
It's like Trump tweeted this himself.
5. Getting Rid of the Competition?
Is Trump just plotting to stop Kanye's plans to run for president in 2020?
6. The Struggle
It really sucks when that happens.
Hopefully he'll return one day.
8. What DO Trump's Supporters Think?
Can't really imagine Kanye or his music being popular with Trump's base.
This perfectly encapsulates the Trump/West partnership.
10. Was THAT Why?
It'd be hilarious if Kanye went blonde was to match his friend's hair.
11. Ok, This Guy Has a Point.
We're all getting played again, aren't we?
It'll be interesting to see where this leads. It's worth noting that Trump's parting words for Kanye after their meeting were, "I'll see you soon."
