The artist formerly known as Kanye West — just call him “Ye,” he tweeted — visited the president in the Oval Office on Thursday and waxed poetic on everything from the criminal justice system to his merchandising deal with Adidas to, yes, that MAGA hat he insisted on wearing.

Some of his notable quotes during the controversial visit included some that were of the nonsensical variety, USA Today reported.

“My dad and my mom separated so there was not a lot of male energy in my home and also I’m married to a family where, you know, there’s not a lot of male energy,” he told Trump while a gaggle of journalists were looking on along with former NFL player Jim Brown and singer-turned-failed Republican candidate Kid Rock. “It’s beautiful, though.”

The 10-minute diatribe he delivered while face-to-face with the president including a series of curses, his cellphone’s [no longer] secret code and hints at a future in politics. He also gave some love to first daughter Ivanka Trump.

It’s no secret how much Kanye says he cares for and admires the president, whose MAGA hat that was introduced on the campaign trail in 2016 has become the rapper’s go-to fashion statement. He was fresh off a Saturday Night Live performance two weeks ago that included another multi-minute spiel about how much he worships the president.

However, seeing is believing. Our words can’t do Thursday’s meeting the true justice it deserves, so just watch the below videos, mixed in with photos from the White House, and make whatever conclusion you need to.
