Ike Barinholtz, who directed the upcoming Trump-inspired political satire "The Oath", said the meeting was inappropriate given the hurricane that is wrecking havoc on the east coast.

Wearing his Make America Great Again hat in the Oval Office, 'Ye proclaimed his admiration for the controversial president before he told him about his purported misdiagnosis.

West is one of the president's most high-profile supporters and was invited to a lunch in Washington DC on Thursday to discuss criminal justice reform, manufacturing jobs and gang violence in his hometown of Chicago.

Later, West gave a charged critique of the media, including SNL, where he voiced his support of Trump in an untelevised rant.

He revealed that his friends had tried to scare him not to wear the MAGA hat, popularised during the president's campaign in 2016.

Talking at speed on everything from Trump's protectionist trade polices to black gun crime and "infinite amounts of universe", West left the normally talkative president nearly speechless with his performance. "You made a Superman - that's my favorite superhero".

Hirono was not alone in her concerns about Collins' speech on the Senate floor on Friday and the decision to vote for Kavanaugh. So I think it was understandable that he was reacting as a human being, as a father, as a father of two young girls.

Kanye West has reiterated his support for Donald Trump during a freakish meeting between the two men at the White House, with the rapper declaring his love for the President and telling him his Make America Great Again hat makes him "feel like Superman".

On "male energy": "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". "And there are many other people like that".

Williams said the Oval Office should be "treated with respect", appearing to nod to the fact that West used an expletive while praising Trump.

"I tell you what, that was pretty impressive", Trump said after West spoke.

Kanye replied: "It was from the soul. I just channeled it", West said. "You made a Superman cape for me, also, as someone who looks up to you. looks up to American industry guys".

Earlier this year, Kim Kardashian met him to discuss prison reform issues, which resulted in convicted drug dealer Alice Marie Johnson being granted clemency.

The president is pushing hard to portray himself as being on the side of blacks, rather than only the overwhelmingly white voter block behind his surprise election.

"We need prototypes so we can start working again", he said.
