He goes on a stream of consciousness talking about how he has been "programmed" to talk a certain way and talking "clear". "It's VERY likely that Donald Trump will be re-elected for a second term. You made a Superman cape for me".

The Brown character's internal dialogue included this line: "I played football with a leather helmet, and my brain is still working better than his".

In the skit, Mr. Baldwin as Mr. Trump thinks to himself, "This guy might be cuckoo".

Kanye also added: "I am the best living recording artist - we, rather, because the spirits flow through me". But Eminem doesn't love the president back. "We have a lot more in common than people know".

They even included Jim Brown's character in the voice over thoughts, asking, "Can somebody be tri-polar?"


NME reports that Trump supposedly liked listening to rap songs that mentioned him, though he's threatened some rappers, including Mac Miller, with legal action for using his name.

Kanye West is reportedly in Uganda for a video shoot for his new music album. We don't know for sure.

Many in the media had already mocked the meeting and West's speech, calling it "bonkers" and "an assault on our White House".

"They love me more than they love Alec Baldwin". "In 2016, Trump won Missouri by almost 20 points". He says: "I've forgotten how to talk not clear because I'm so programmed to talk clear and sound proper - that gets in the way of how we feel".
