The “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” host told his audience that he had no idea why they decided to allow cameras into the highly-anticipated meeting to capture the surreal interaction.

“Not only was this a crazy conversation for this White House, this is the kind of conversation that would typically be held between people wearing hospital bracelets.”


Kanye sat across from a quiet Trump at the Resolute Desk wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and launching into a 10-minute uninterrupted tirade laced with profanity.

The topics discussed by the rapper included his mental health issues, the prison system and his past call for the abolishment of the 13th Amendment.

Kanye also praised the “hero’s journey” Trump is on right now.

“He might not have thought he’d have a crazy motherf---er like Kanye running up to support," West said. 

Kimmel said Trump sat quietly while “an irrational madman rants and raves at him.”

The comedian showed a clip featuring thought bubbles jokingly referring to what Trump might have been thinking. 

“Now he knows how we feel every morning when we wake up to him,” Kimmel joked, comparing the interaction with Tom Hanks’s character talking to Wilson the volleyball in the film “Cast Away.”

“It’s like Trump was sitting across from his own Twitter account come to life,” Kimmel added.
