The Best Reactions To Trump And Kanye's Extremely Weird Meeting
2016 has been unpredictable in many ways, but Kanye West meeting up with Donald Trump, an out-and-out racist who disses rap music on the regular, might be the strangest thing yet.
I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues.

Criticising a performance by Jay-Z and Beyonce, Trump said: "The language is so bad and as they were singing - singing right? Was it talking or singing? Right? But the language was so bad" - but that hasn't stopped Kanye stepping into Trump Tower.

Asked by journalists what in the hell they could be talking about, Trump said, "He's a good man. We've been friends for a very long time".
Sure looks like it.
And Kanye? Well, Kanye stood there saying nothing, other than, "I just want to take a picture right now".
Celebrities had a LOT to say about this brief encounter:
James from The Vamps:
This is a tragedy for humanity. Instead we report Kanye West meeting Trump. Why is it only after brexit and election that we start talking?

I hope Kanye is ok

You would think Kanye would want to keep a low profile but these people need the spotlight 24 hours a day or they think they don't exist. https://t.co/EzlHZn0Z9N

But our fave response?
"In an interview with French outlet Clique, Legend had some harsh words for the meeting, which he called a "publicity stunt."
"I don't think it's impossible to talk to [Donald Trump] about issues, but I won't be used as a publicity stunt. I think Kanye was a publicity stunt," he told French media outlet Clique.
"I'm pretty disappointed with Kanye that he says he would have voted for Trump. I think Trump has been corrosive, his message has been corrosive to the country. I think the things he's promised to do have been very concerning for a lot of people, and for Kanye to support that message is very disappointing".
