He stood atop a wooden table and preached to customers…
After meeting Donald Trump at the White House yesterday, Kanye West headed straight to an Apple Store in Washington.
It’s believed that Kanye was in attendance for a Genius bar appointment, but he instead chose to stand atop a wooden table to deliver a “keynote” speech to customers in the store.
It came only hours after he had shown off his own iPhone at the White House – and inadvertently revealed how his pincode was surprisingly weak as 0000.
The talk was attended by reporter Jack Jenkins, who captured the moment on his phone and provided a running commentary of Kanye’s speech.
According to Jenkins, West told the crowd how he had made Trump a custom hat that featured an edited version of his “Make American Great Again” slogan, with the “again” cut out as it’s disrespectful to black Americans.
“It hurts us as people, specifically black people, the idea, because we say, was America ever great for us? So we made an updated hat that said ‘Make America Great,’ and Trump wore the hat so he is open to adjusting and listening”, West is heard to say in a video posted to Twitter by CNN reporter Caroline Kelly.
Jenkins also says that Apple Store employees were unable to comment about why Kanye was in attendance, but one said it was simply him being “extra”.
As the talk came to an end, Kanye reportedly told those in attendance that he was heading to Africa – supporting his previous claims that he will finish recording Yandhi there.
It came only hours after Kanye concluded his visit to the White House to see Donald Trump.
The star met with Trump inside the Oval Office with a televised sit-down between the rapper, the President and the former NFL player Jim Brown taking place prior to a working lunch which was set to focus on such topics as urban revitalisation, new workforce training programs and more.
