The cast of Saturday Night Live took on the Oval Office meeting between President Donald Trump and rapper Kanye West, mocking West's mental health and comparing him to the president.

President Yoweri Museveni has an addition to his shoe wardrobe: a pair of white sneakers, which he has received as a gift from American celebrity entertainer Kanye West, also known as Ye.

Mr Museveni in a Facebook post confirmed that he held fruitful discussions with the duo on how they can support efforts to promote Uganda's tourism and the general arts.

The videos come after a surprising chain of events from the Life of Pablo rapper, including his recent visit to the White House to meet with President Trump. "Enjoy your time in Uganda", Museveni tweeted. "It is the true Pearl of Africa", Museveni wrote on Twitter.

West followed that with borrowing lines from Trump himself, saying he is a "stable genius" and "has a big brain and the best words".

According to reports, West and Brown were initially invited by Trump to discuss an opioid crisis he believes is destroying communities across the country. "He played my father in a sketch".

"She really appreciates that T.I. has the courage to speak up for what he believes is right, even if that means openly criticizing Kanye who is regarded as a leader in the hip hop community", the source told us. He then went into a long speech about different dimensions and universes that quickly went off the rails.

"Here's the reason I will never be surprised by Kanye West: That skit was in 2007, and he interrupted Taylor Swift in 2009", Meyers revealed. "I just think that he's speaking to a very small choir".
