Kanye West took to his now-deleted Twitter account last week to invite Colin Kaepernick to attend a meeting with Donald Trump so they can have a “dialogue.” Of course, Kaepernick did not respond, but that isn’t stopping ‘Ye from visiting 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

reaching out to Colin Kaepernick. I would like you to speak with the president to tell him your experience directly. Let’s have a dialogue not a diatribe.

According to The New York Times, the pro-Trump rapper will “President Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, are expected to meet with the musician Kanye West on Thursday at the White House.”

The meeting comes after Kanye’s recent Saturday Night Live appearance (Sept. 29), kicking off season 44 of the comedic sketch show. After wrapping the live filming of SNL, Yeezy threw on his infamous MAGA hat and addressed the cast with a very pro-Trump rant.

This past Saturday, SNL cast member Pete Davidson roasted Kanye and his I’m-not-taking-my-meds parade.

“There’s no shame in the medicine game. It’s great. If I ever got on a plane and the pilot said, ‘I just wanna let you know, this is the real me flying,’ I’d jump out! Being mentally ill is not an excuse to act like a jackass.”

Of course, Donald Trump saw nothing wrong with the G.O.O.D. Music mogul’s SNL appearance. In fact (unsurprisingly), Trump tweeted his approval of ‘Ye’s set.
