The comedian called the rapper "my brother" but said he "shouldn't say all that sh*t" backing the President - and that was before Kanye's latest rant-filled visit to the White House.

West and Brown's "lunch date" was private and off limits to the media, although cameras and reporters were allowed in Oval Office to ask questions for a moment before the lunch began. During this informal presser, West launched into a speech about his feeling of liberation when supporting President Trump.

The trio also discussed Kid Rock's appearance at the White House, how Trump and West's hug portrayed "black people and white supremacists betrayed in the same photo" and why West wants to be Trump's famous friend. "This is our president".

"You could tell a lot by how much each of them prepared for the meeting: Kanye prepared by learning every fact of the world backwards, while Trump prepared by clearing his desk of any valuables", Jost added.

"Thank you all for joining us today for this important discussion". They also mocked West's past difficulties with mental illness.

From there, Baldwin (Trump) remains silent but viewers get to hear his inner dialogue, which consists of things like "poopity scoop" and "oh, this guy might be coocoo".

"Ooh, this guy might be cuckoo".

"[West] doesn't listen to anybody but himself". Who does he remind me of?. Baldwin mused in the Trump sketch, before exclaiming, "Oh my god, he's black me!"

They even included Jim Brown's character in the voice over thoughts, asking, "Can somebody be tri-polar?"

Funnyman Chris Redd, who was cast as Kanye for the episode's cold open, then shared a comedic interpretation of the rapper's Oval Office speech, claiming he flew to the meeting using the "power" of his MAGA cap.
