Rapper Kanye West had lunch with and met with President Trump at the White House Thursday afternoon.
In addition to West having lunch Trump, West, not surprisingly, took the opportunity to express his opinion on a number issues. He talked about gun violence, Chicago, Hillary, MAGA and business. However, this apparently was just too much to take for two MSNBC hosts.
Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle were completely triggered by West’s words and meeting Thursday afternoon. They called the meeting “bonkers,” “an assault on our White House” and “crazy.” Listen, I get it, Kanye is not everyone’s cup of tea. Yes, he’ll say some off the wall stuff occasionally and…yes, MSNBC he’ll even use profanity!
Check out their meltdown:
MSNBC had an absolutely incredible meltdown over Kanye West's meeting with Trump in the Oval Office.

Here’s what West said during Thursday meeting at the White House:
Does Kanye drone on and on? Yeah, but have you never ever heard him speak before? Does he go off the rails at times? Yes, but does he make some points, pointing out some truth in the process? Absolutely.
I’ve watched Kanye’s entire talk a couple of times and for the life of me, I just don’t understand what the two MSNBC hosts found so incredibly offensive.
