President Donald Trump and rapper Kanye West got together for lunch at the White House Thursday. Trump is known to have a childish fast-food diet, but the menu for this event was adult and normal. The two dined on an appetizer of caprese salad with balsamic glaze, followed by roasted chicken, fingerling potatoes, and sauteed asparagus for their entree, per Associated Press White House reporter Zeke Miller.

Those are perfectly sane foods to eat. Trump and West were set to discuss manufacturing, prison reform, and other issues related to America in their meeting. So, how did that go? Normal, like the menu?

West suggested “Apple should build a hydrogen-powered iPlane to replace Air Force One and then showed [Trump] a design for the plane on his iPhone,” according to Telegraph special correspondent James Cook.

West said he “loves” Trump’s former presidential rival Hillary Clinton, but wearing a MAGA hat makes him “feel like Superman.”

Trump said West would make a great presidential candidate. West said he wouldn’t run until 2024.

West embraced Trump with a handshake and a hug.

West went on a 10-minute monologue, claiming, among other things, that he placed in the 98th percentile on an IQ test.

No, that wasn’t very normal at all.
