Kanye West Gifts Museveni With White Sneakers

The cast of Saturday Night Live took on the Oval Office meeting between President Donald Trump and rapper Kanye West, mocking West's mental health and comparing him to the president.

Actor Alec Baldwin reprised his role as Trump and Chris Redd threw on a MAGA hat to play 'Ye. Many of Redd's lines were taken almost verbatim from the Thursday's real meeting. He went on to say the "13th amendment is a trapped door", and that Chicago's murder rate is going down every year.

Baldwin as Trump welcomed West to the office, thanking him for giving him a pair of his sneakers ("They're ideal for me because they're white, they're wide and they're never going to be worth as much as you say they are", Baldwin's Trump said) and allowing him to make "one or two brief, lucid remarks".

Many online couldn't help but express that the actual meeting was even more odd than its SNL parody. "One time, he was the musical guest, but we heard he wanted to do a sketch, so we pitched him a sketch where he would interrupt different award show speeches saying they had made a mistake and he should have won".


"[West] doesn't listen to anybody but himself".

"Oh my Lord. What have I gotten myself into?" thought Brown in voiceover.

Someone who didn't find T.I.

The October 12 episode's cold open sketch recreated the sit-down between West and Trump, along with National Football League legend Jim Brown. "She feels like the only thing worse than how Kanye is behaving is for good men like T.I.to stand by and do nothing". "This guy makes Brett Kavanaugh look calm and collected". But he did tell reporters after the meeting that Trump treated him "beautifully" during his time there. Once the embattled rap star started arguing for the abolition of the 13th Amendment to stop the Unibomber and trap doors, though, NotTrump started recognizing how weird this self-proclaimed "very stable genius" sounded. and how much it mirrored his own odd public commentaries.
