It was a meeting of minds that will no doubt go down in history. We are, of course, talking about the surprise trip Kanye West made to Trump Tower.
Donald Trump says: “We’ve been friends for a long time,” but we haven’t exactly seen him taking Melania to a Life Of Pablo gig recently.
Two of the most controversial figures of the year sent the internet into a bit of a tailspin, as online beavers immediately started work on the inevitable onslaught of memes.
Some people were suspicious at the timing of Kanye dying his hair blonde and then meeting the blonde-quiffed president-elect.

Others were quick to throw in some of Yeezy’s lyrics.

We miss the old Kanye.
The corn-rowed Kanye.

It now seems *slightly* awkward that Kanye dissed Trump in his 2010 track So Appalled.

And also that he put a naked model of Trump in his recent video for Famous.

Maybe Trump is going to replace Jay-Z as Kanye’s partner in crime and they’re going to drop 2017′s hottest new mixtape?
Some are even speculating that Ye will rap at Trump’s inauguration. Now that is something we would pay good money to see.

But then again, maybe Yeezy is just another example of 2016 getting the best of us.
Kanye has said in the past that he’s planning to run for president in 2024. Maybe this is the future that we all need to start preparing for.
