Late night host Jimmy Kimmel, like many of Americans, was shocked to see President Donald Trump seek counsel from rapper Kanye West.
West will be at the White House Thursday as the president desperately attempts to use the star for legitimacy with African American voters.
“Now there’s a devil’s triangle for you, huh?” Kimmel said. “Am I the only one who would buy that lunch on pay-per-view? I would love to see what they talk about. They actually hinted, Kanye and Trump, the topics at lunch are said to include prison reform, gang violence and how good it feels to unload like a maniac on Twitter.”
Kimmel said he could only imagine what would happen if West ran into Vice President Mike Pence.
“Mother and I enjoy your hip-hops very much,” Kimmel said mimicking Pence.
“I was thinking about it this afternoon. what is it that Kanye West likes about Donald Trump and I can’t figure it out and then I saw a picture of him with Kim, and it hit me: Kanye loves a big ass!” West said. “That’s right. Who has a bigger one than that? So, the question now is how will the hysterical right-wing media react to this?”
He played a clip of Fox News host Sean Hannity, who railed against former President Barack Obama, who invited Common to an event at the White House. Hannity went nuts, talking about how Common attacked George W. Bush and used the N-word in songs. West, by contrast, was welcomed by Hannity, who ignored the time West said “George Bush doesn’t care about black people,” and the usage of words in his songs.

Saudi doctor yanked from flight after woman freaks out over his ‘see you on the other side’ remark
A Muslim doctor was removed from an American Airlines flight out of Florida after a woman misunderstood a remark he made to his wife in a phone call.
Abdulaziz Al Mana, a medical resident at Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital, was flying in June to Washington, D.C., to visit his wife when he noticed the woman seated next to him acting nervously as the plane taxied onto the runway, reported the Miami New Times.
The woman slipped a note to a flight attendant, and the captain then announced the plane would be turned around for a passenger emergency.

Trump thinks he’s ‘the chosen one’ for one really preposterous reason
Even for a bottomless pit of narcissism like Donald Trump, Wednesday was an exceptional day for self-aggrandizement. Early in the day, Trump tweeted quotes from one of his more sycophantic — and unhinged — followers, Wayne Allyn Root, calling Trump the "King of Israel" and "the second coming of God." Later that day, when speaking to reporters, Trump embraced the prophet identity again, calling himself "the Chosen One," in response to a question about trade dealings with China.
