Midtown, New York – Kanye West had a brief meeting with President-elect Donald Trump this morning, after which the two posed for photos in front of the press pool — but very little emerged about what was actually discussed.
When asked what the topics of conversation had been, Donald Trump sharply replied “Life,” and that appeared to be that.
When Kanye was asked questions by reporters, he smiled and said “I just want y’all to take a photo.”
As the two parted ways, Trump said to West “So long man, take care of yourself,” before patting the rapper on the shoulder. West had recently left hospital following a bout of temporary psychosis brought on by lack of sleep and dehydration. Briefly before entering hospital, he controversially admitted that he had not voted but if he had, he would have voted for Trump.
Unsurprisingly, the social media has been ablaze in response to the meeting of two of the world’s most meme-able people.
