Donald Trump met with noted rapper and husband Kanye West last night as he works diligently to shore up his choices for key positions in his cabinet. Trump, in a staged photo op that more than sated the press who only just hours before learned that Trump would not be addressing his solution for the alleged conflict of interest that many claim will be part of his administration. Trump feels if he lets the interests know his plan too soon, they will see him coming and it would be Aleppo* all over again.
But Trump only had great words for Kanye West. “It’s always great to see him,” Trump said. “And I look forward to working with Ben as he takes on HUD.” Kanye added, “Yeah, okay.”
“Of course Trump knows it was Kanye West,” Jason Miller, Trump spokesman, later said. “He only mentioned Ben Carson since He and Mr. West was discussing Trump’s highly qualified pick for HUD secretary moments earlier. The dishonest press once again is trying infer something that was never implied.”
Kanye West could not be reached for comment.
