Kanye West in the Oval Office was everything we didn’t expect (or really should have) and so much more. Yeezy went on one of his epic, free-flowing, fact-deficient rants that even had Donald Trump, who was sitting across from him, looking at him like he was crazy.
Yeezy touched on everything from being diagnosed as bipolar (but saying he is actually sleep deprived), to how the MAGA has is his Superman cape to doubling down on abolishing the 13th Amendment to something about trap doors and Hillary Clinton’s “I’m with her” wave making him uncomfortable.
Yes, it’s 2018 and this is really happening.
See the clips of rant and the best reactions in the gallery.
Also, hey Yeezy, change your phone’s password bruh.
Kanye West is rambling and cursing about the Unabomber, sleep deprivation and the four gentlemen who wrote the 13th Amendment while sitting in the Oval Office with Donald Trump. America is so screwed. pic.twitter.com/xfEs16nBwJ— Keith Boykin (@keithboykin) October 11, 2018
I’m not sure what “love” means as he’s using it here. And his support of Trump because Hillary didn’t make him feel strong is gross. pic.twitter.com/DOXZyq2gSa— deray (@deray) October 11, 2018

A guy who is diagnosed bipolar but is not taking his meds was not only allowed in the Oval Office but was allowed to physically interact with the President? Are we just not taking mental health seriously here or is it me?

Black people have always been responsible for their communities, even when they were legally banned from marrying, even when their babies were sold, and even when communities were terrorized. Like huh?
