And for some reason that is supposed to be important.

Rap star Kanye West is to visit the White House on Thursday where he will meet with President Donald Trump and Jared Kushner, White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders said.
“Kanye West is coming to the White House to have lunch with President Trump and he will also meet with Jared Kushner,” Sanders said in a statement Tuesday morning. “Topics of discussions will include manufacturing resurgence in America, prison reform, how to prevent gang violence, and what can be done to reduce violence in Chicago.”
It’s unclear whether the White House will open West’s visit to the press. During the presidential transition, Trump memorably brought West in front of cameras in the Trump Tower lobby for an impromptu gaggle with reporters.
I am not sure why the White House feels that this is something to brag about.
I mean when the Obama’s were in the White House there was like a revolving door specifically to accommodate all of the celebrities that visited and performed there. (Don’t believe me? Here’s a list.)
Then I thought “Hey, maybe it’s not that Kanye’s a celebrity, but that the White House announces when any black person comes to visit.”
All I know is that if Trump wants to impress us about which black celebrities are coming to visit him, perhaps he should pick one that is not clearly going through a mental health crisis.
I don’t know that much about Kanye but I know that he once interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech, says crazy things on Twitter, and actually stuck his penis into at least one Kardashian.
Not exactly a person whose visit I would celebrate.
Speaking of Taylor Swift she wone “Artist of the Year” at the AMA’s last night and encouraged people to vote in the midterms during her acceptance speech.

Now see THAT’S the type of entertainer worth bragging about.
However, I am pretty sure she’s not coming to the White House anytime soon.
