17 surreal things that happened during the Donald Trump-Kanye West summit

Such distinctions belonged to Kanye West.

President Trump and Kanye West met at the White House on Thursday.

After one of West's 10-minute sermon-style speeches, the president took over, complimenting the rapper for being a "smart cookie". Instead, the company has suggested in the past that users select passcodes with unique significance only they may know.

Kardashian West also attended a White House roundtable discussion last month focused on the clemency process.

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.

"Let's stop worrying about the future, all we have is today", West said, commenting on his own presidential ambitions. "That was quite something".

West recently made waves by wearing Trump's signature "Make America Great Again" hat during an appearance on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" and delivering a pro-Trump speech after the show went off the air.

"I tell you what", Donald Trump said.

West is married to reality television star Kim Kardashian West, who pushed Trump to grant a pardon for a drug offender this year.

"I like him a lot", Trump said of West in that interview.

He also revealed he had been diagnosed - wrongly, he said - with bipolar disorder.

The conversation turned to West expressing the lack of support he received from his Hollywood cohorts with regard to his support of the president.

Trump said West is a friend and a "different kind of a guy" whose big following in the African-American community helped boost his approval ratings. "I'm talking about the it-will-never-happens of the world, people in high school told you things would never happen". "Over and over and over again, the eternal returns, the hero's journey", West said.

Mr Trump said that "stop-and-frisk works". "She was very unfairly treated", Trump said of Johnson.

"Oh, it is good energy in this", West replied, perhaps invoking his claim, before the meeting, that he ad Trump understand one another because they both possess something he called "dragon energy".

Recording Academy President Neil Portnow and Recording Industry Association of America President Mitch Glazier, among other music industry figures, will also join Yeezy at the signing, scheduled for 11:45 am EST. But he said "this hat, it gives me power". "He might not have thought he'd have a insane motherf-er like (me)".

And of course, everyone watched - even if they said they didn't want to or didn't care - because it was impossible to tear yourself away from the spectacle.
