Kanye West’s meeting with Trump provokes scorn, unhappiness, support

(Reuters) – Rapper Kanye West’s televised meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump within the Oval Office grew to become the highest trending matter on Twitter on Thursday, prompting a spread of response from concern over the singer’s psychological well being, to jokes, memes and political commentary.

Following is a sampling of response on Twitter, tv information and different media:

“Kanye ranting is just… sad.” – TV journalist Soledad O’Brien

“Putting a mentally ill Kanye West in front of the Camera should be considered a form of abuse. @KimKardashian you need to do something about your husband, he’s clearly severely mentally ill — and that’s putting it lightly.” – Twitter person clean@pacelattin

“I felt like I was sitting in on a psychiatrist visit and a commercial for Donald Trump.” – Democratic Congresswoman Jackie Speier, talking on CNN.

“@Kanye couldn’t have said it better: Illegal guns are the problem, and we have the right to bear arms. The #NRA’s nearly six million members are glad to see a celebrity who gets it, and who is willing to stand with the #2A.” – The National Rifle Association.

“Kim Kardashian. Come get your husband.” – Twitter person @promotemycause.

“Kanye West just delivered the craziest Oval Office performance of all time.” – Rolling Stone journal

“I don’t have a Kanye quip. This is actually sad for the country, and not hilarious.” – Democratic Senator Brian Schatz of Hawaii

“Wow! That was bonkers. … That was crazy.” – information anchor Ali Velshi, talking on MSNBC.

“Kanye is off the plantation. The media and the Democrats watch in horror!” – conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza

“I’m sad for Kanye West. It is very possible that he is suffering from a manic episode, and there is a good chance that he needs some addition help. It’s outrageous that Trump exploited him today by allow him to ramble on in the Oval Office.” – Ed Krassenstein, co-founder of stories web site HillReporter.com, on Twitter

“Dumb handwringing over Trump having Kanye in the Oval Office after years of slobbering over the celebs that had meetings with Obama is the exact stuff that makes everyone hate the press and like trump more.” – Twitter person @bccover

“So … correct me if I’m wrong, but a Hurricane has devastated parts of America and the President is whooping it up with Kanye in his office?” – Twitter person @th3j35t3r

“Instead of challenging the merits of what Kanye is actually discussing with Trump, some devolve to the lowest common denominator rebuttal. No objections or “surreal” headlines when he met with Obama (or mentioned ‘Bush hates black people’).” – speak radio host Dana Loesch.

“We’re about two days away from Kim Kardashian announcing her divorce.” – Twitter person @MildlyAmused
