Summarizing the meeting between the "45th and 46th presidents of the United States", Kimmel said that watching West, "an irrational madman" ranting and raving for almost 10 minutes uninterrupted, was like watching "Trump sitting across from his own Twitter account come to life".

During one pause, Trump seemed to acknowledge the oddness of the moment, saying, "That was quite something".

When Task & Purpose asked the Air Force about West's suggestion, the service declined to say whether it would consider making the iPlane One the president's official ride.

"Kanye, back away from the cameras, go get some help, and then come back and make your case", he said, later adding: "We're watching someone's demise in front of our eyes".

Kanye West came with an bad lot to say, reports CBS2's Dick Brennan. He also criticized the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery, calling it a "trap door".

"I tell you what: That was pretty impressive", the president said. Hirshberg told the Verge that the plane design was not currently feasible, requiring "more advanced propulsion systems and better building materials" than are available now.

Make of that what you will.

Lemon countered: "I'm just telling the truth".

Taking questions from reporters, the rapper also voiced concern about stop-and-frisk policing.

"The liberal will try to control a black person through the concept of racism cause they know we are a very proud, emotional people", he said. He visited the real estate billionaire in Trump Tower shortly after the unexpected election results, and has been vocal about his love for Trump ever since. "He is my brother", West wrote.

Lemon was not the only television host who had a poor reaction to the meeting.

West himself has suggested he might be open to wading into politics, including a run for president in 2020.

Since telling the world that he suffered from bipolar disorder, the iconic rap artist has been making worldwide headlines for his eccentric conduct, controversial statements on slavery and pro-Trump rants, claiming that he's been bullied for his support for 45.
