Kanye West goes West Wing, asks Apple to build a plane, and reveals his iPhone password

Kanye be Kanye, as the hip-hop artist caused a furor during his White House meeting with President Trump yesterday by revealing his password for unlocking the iPhone in his hand was just a bunch of zeroes. 

Incoherent 10-minute rant aside, this was the single biggest take from the visit, as everyone and their dog retweeted the moment Kanye West keyed in a few zeroes after what looked like a failed Face ID attempt. 

He then proceeded to show Donald Trump a picture of a hydrogen-fueled plane (yes, there was a lot about the future of mankind in the rant) which he said Apple should build to replace AirForce One.

The rapper said he is not running for president before 2024, then left the White House, and headed straight to the Apple Store in Georgetown, where he got on one of the tables and continued his speech circuit. The topic this time around was a new design he created for the MAGA hats, without the "Again," which he said Trump wore. Fun times.

Try not to judge but understand... And I understand this lad "Ye". The sole reason he's endorsing the right is because of his life long feud with Taylor Swift who is an atheist, liberal and a democrat. These people might be stars; they 'might' have some so called talent (Which I doubt) but underneath all that glory; they're dummies playing teen drama in their 30s and 40s. Anyhow, I shall never understand rap or the culture that goes with it. Seems like a purely American thing, which an ol' Aussie like me would never fathom! G'Day!

He's going nuts. I know it's his personal opinion but he feels like he knows stuff when infact it's just a bunch of random illogical ideas that pops up in his head

Why this news even here? (Okay, Apple mentioned once, but 97% of this news is about politics, and it shouldn't be here)

Kanye is changing his name to Stephen so people will recognize him better. For those who are perplexed, it's a Django reference.
