Don Lemon mocks Kanye West for Donald Trump 'minstrel show'

President-elect Donald Trump and Kanye West pose for

The White House had said that Trump and West would discuss a range of issues, including manufacturing, prison reform, preventing gang violence and reducing violence in Chicago, which is where West grew up.

In a almost 10-minute-long speech in the Oval Office, West said he was pressured not to wear his red "Make America Great Again" hat, and said he has felt pressure to be a Democrat because he is black. He walked over to Trump and held out his phone, to show him a picture of what he said was "the i-plane 1 - a hydrogen-powered airplane -this is what the president should be flying in".

The award-winning musician has taken fire from other celebrities for his support for Trump, particularly after his recent appearance on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" show.

It's getting harder and harder to see the gems between Kanye West's loose streams of consciousness.

Asked about his comments in 2005 that President George W. Bush didn't "care about black people" after Hurricane Katrina, West said that "We need to care about all people" and that he "was programed to think in a victimized mentality".

The Grammy victor alluded to the president as a father figure: "My dad and my mom separated so there was not a lot of male energy in my home and also I'm married to a family where, you know, there's not a lot of male energy", West said while appearing alongside Trump.

"He can speak for me anytime he wants", Trump said, gratefully.

"I'm just disgusted! How do our conversations always go to his primal needs for attention!"

"We get caught up over the idea of racism, over the idea of industry", he said, calling for more black Americans to have "ownership" of their society.

Fox News warned its viewers Thursday that the network could not play the entire audio of Kanye West's visit to the White House, because he let a few expletives fly.

"I'm standing in this spot, I love this guy!"

"I love Hillary", he said, "I love everyone, right?"

"That's really nice", Trump said, beaming toward the cameras behind the right shoulder of the man they call Yeezus.
