After weeks of reports of severe exhaustion and ensuing hospitalization, Kanye West walked into Trump Tower on Tuesday morning.
Journalists who caught a glimpse of the musician entering the tightly guarded building in Manhattan took to Twitter to document the strange spectacle. Mr. West’s appearance occurred shortly before former Gov. Rick Perry of Texas was named as President-elect Donald J. Trump's pick to lead the Energy Department — the same agency that Mr. Perry said during the 2012 presidential race that he wanted to abolish.
For Mr. Trump, the visit was another headline-grabber stuffed into a series of more consequential events, including the possibility of a showdown with Republicans in Congress over intelligence reports that Russia may have interfered in the election.
Once Mr. West returned to the lobby with Mr. Trump, he didn’t provide much information about the reasons for his visit.
If I shall die before they wake, I pray the Lord my shades are safe.
