It was more like 'Ye seized the moment to launch into a self-serving monologue.

Saturday Night Live's cold open this weekend began with a parody of Kanye West and Donald Trump's Oval Office meeting in which the president realizes that the rapper is "a black version of himself". Nearly immediately, Redd brings up the 13th Amendment and how it's "trap door" leads to the Uni-Bomber.

SNL's spoof of the rapper comes a week after Pete Davidson criticised West's pro-Trump rant following the first show of the season September 29, where the rapper served as musical guest.

"Pretty soon, it's gonna be a negative murder rate", he says. "He doesn't listen to anyone but himself, who does he remind me of?"

Former interim Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile tore into Kanye West on Sunday, accusing him of repeating "bad stereotypes about black people" during his recent White House visit. Here's what we know about Donald Trump's taste in music, his habit of listening to tracks that mention him, and his choice to make his own playlists for rallies.

Dr Wendy Fernander, president of the Bahamas Pharmaceutical Association, stressed the importance of having good mental health . The conference focused on public awareness of critical issues of mental illness present in youths.

Lady Gaga calls for more mental health awareness
Nearly 1 in 2 Australians will experience a mental health condition at some point in their lifetime. The more we talk about mental health, the more we can identify and support those in need.

Finally, Trump makes sense of West.

"Oh my god, he's black me", said Baldwin's Trump at one point.

Comedian Dave Chappelle called President Trump's rhetoric "repugnant" in an interview on Saturday and said he represents a small amount of the American public. If someone was behaving this way in the street, most of us would probably edge away and feel very bad for doing so.

It ends with Trump telling Kanye that he loves him and that they have a lot in common: "We are both geniuses, we're both married to attractive women and we've both definitely been recorded saying the N-word". For this reason, the cameras in the White House should not have been filming him.
