As you may have heard, read, seen Kanye West visited Trump Tower for a brief meeting with President-elect Donald Trump. Yeezy as he is known to his fans or Ye for short once again managed to break the internet. Twitter exploded as people from both ends of the political spectrum and those in between reacted to the news of West and Trump hanging out together. The laughter we all deserve.

Amanda Carpenter kind of nailed it here…
The internet hasn’t been all that fun as of late, and maybe we needed a little humor… or a lot. Clearly many of us were in dire need of some comic relief.
This makes me so happy, I can't even explain. https://t.co/NyMke4TIbb

Did it really matter why, the two were getting together? To these peeps, the why was worth the thought. I’m glad they took the time, they crack me up!

Kanye West could make his comeback from illness at Trump's inauguration. 2017 is going to be just as crazy as 2016

To others it was a signal of Kanye’s future political aspirations.
Okay, so Kanye West will be in the cabinet, not the ticket. A modified dream! pic.twitter.com/kmSFnpDqdp

You say that it's no surprise now.
But when they do the presser announcing Kanye is replacing Pence, remember to be very surprised. https://t.co/AkQY2na26f

Maybe it’s Trump that was looking for advice?
Maybe Kanye was at Trump Tower to secure Rick Perry for his tour. He comes highly recommended from Vanilla Ice https://t.co/YCYLidL3LG pic.twitter.com/JvxkNseStb

Of course, not everyone was amused. Or was it gallows humor?

Some of his fans weren’t at all happy with Kanye’s decision to visit Trump.

There were quite a few but most of them contained language I couldn’t share here. Let’s just say they were more than just disappointed.
Mary Katharine Ham wraps it up quite nicely.
Take a bow, 2016. https://t.co/XcyXhK0UeI

Yes. 2016 just when we think we’ve seen it all. You always remind us the year isn’t over yet.
