Mr. West goes to Washington
Kanye West's visit to the White House on Thursday became punchlines in the masses for late night TV hosts. As Jimmy Kimmel expressed it: "The jokes do not write themselves ̵
In the television oval office meeting, West spent 10 minutes discussing hydrogen-powered plans, his admiration for President's trump and what the West said was the news media duty to cover the president positively.
"It's as if trump sitting across their own Twitter account comes to life." – JIMMY KIMMEL
Trevor Noah said it looked like the tables had turned when he saw west speed through a freewheel soliloquy and the president sat there listening, quiet and almost slaughtered.
"I really liked seeing Kanye make Trump feel how Trump makes us feel everyday." – TREVOR NOAH
"It must have been so confusing for Donald Trump, because you realize that Only other black guy he knows is Ben Carson. So now he's like: "Black people are the quietest, sleepiest and most talkative manic people I know!" " TREVOR NOAH
But how much does humor cost? Jimmy Fallon suggested that the president seemed more interested in photo opportunities than dealing with the effects of hurricane Michael, who pummeled the Florida Panhandle this week.
"The President spent the day with Kanye West, and Kid Rock was there too. Meanwhile, Florida people were like:" Do not worry, we'll only deal with this hurricane itself. "" JIMMY FALLON
At the same time, other concerns expressed about West's mental health. He stated at the Oval Office meeting that he had been "diagnosed" with bipolar disorder, but people near him told the People's Journal that he did not take medications prescribed by a psychiatrist.
Don Lemon expressed grave concerns about CNN about the media game, calling it "a minstrel show". He said, "We have to take the cameras away from Kanye" and adds: "We look at someone's downfall in front of our eyes."
Do we need an "up and down wall" now?
Noah expressed pleasure after the authorities discovered a 30-mile sophisticated tunnel that drove below the United States and Mexico border. The tunnel, built by drug smugglers, was equipped with solar energy and a ventilation system, as well as a railroad line.
"It's so impressive: An illegal Mexican drug tunnel has basically a better subway system than the new York. And somehow less drugs." – TREVOR NOAH
"Right now, Trump is like," We need one up and down the wall! "" – TREVOR NOAH
"I also liked how the tunnel used solar energy too. It was like a nice touch. It was almost like the drug cartel saw the latest climate report and they were like : "Man, we have to do our part, man. I do not want my children to grow up in a white marble manor house and a pet ladder and no ozone layer, man. Kimmel presented Lynzy Lab, a Texas dance instructor whose song "A Scary Time" went viral after Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to "A Scary Time".

Trump's proposal that it is "a very scary time for young men in America." He commented against the fall of Christine Blasey Ford's testimony, where she suggested that Kavanaugh had sexually attacked her.
