  • To this date, I’ve never viewed having a cup of coffee with someone to be a waste of time, if someone asks, I always say, yes. You can learn something from anyone if you are open to it. Even personalities like Kanye and Trump can leave you walking away with a few epiphanies.

  • Seriously? Well it makes for a good photo op — I suppose although it also adds to the farcical nature of politics these days... cause Kayne West has no credibility on any of these topics.

  • They’re both despicable egomaniacs lacking in shame, empathy, and intellect, so a match made in heaven I guess. Wonder if Kanye will enjoy his well done steak with ketchup 🙄

  • Maybe they’ll try to abolish the 13th amendment afterwards 🤦🏼‍♀️

  • There's a big rift between Trump (or Republicans in general) and the African American community. Despite Kanye's recent missteps, I hope they are able to offer real and actionable solutions to many of the issues the community faces. At the end of the day, suffering knows no party.

  • At least he’s meeting with the President.

    At least he’s meeting with the President. I feel that if more of the liberal celebrities, instead of bashing and resorting to middle school playground name calling, met with President Trump it would set a better example to their followers of settling disagreements through conversation rather than petty name calling. Granted, Trump hasn’t done his best in keeping his composure on social media when people attack him.

  • Birds of a feather flock together.
