Kanye West seems to have sprung back into full-fledged action and is making another post-hospital public appearance. It's just not at all where we expected (or hoped) he would.
On Tuesday morning, (Dec. 13) Kanye West was seen showing up to Trump Tower for a meeting with the president-elect.
In the video, a blond-haired Yeezy is seen strolling through the lobby with a few members of his entourage as the crew piles into an elevator. Though he didn’t respond to questions about what he and Trump were meeting up for, he seemed rather light-spirited as he made his way to the elevator. Another video showed Ye leaving the elevator after the supposed “meeting,” but this time with Trump in tow. When a reporter approached to ask them what the occasion was for such a meeting, Trump replies, “Just friends. Just friends. He’s a good man.” He added that he and West have been “good friends for a long time” and discussed “life,” as the G.O.O.D. Music superior stands in silence.
But knowing Yeezy, he wasn’t silent for too long. When a reporter inquired why he was so silent and not responding to questions at such an explosive moment with the president-elect, he politely responded with, “I just want to take a picture right now.”
In an almost cryptic end to the press-drenched meetup between the two, Trump gave West a hug before the two departed and mysteriously said, “So long, man. You take care of yourself. I’ll see you soon.”
Speculation is rising, with pretty good reason, that Ye might be willing to perform at Trump’s inauguration. During one of his pre-hospitalization rants during the now-canceled Saint Pablo Tour, Yeezy expressed his open support of the president-elect. While he failed to mention that, by way of Trump’s words, the two are longtime pals, the controversy to follow such sentiments was justly warranted.
Now that the two are holding impromptu meetups, we’ve all got question marks haloing our heads, too.
