Kanye West gave an impromptu ‘keynote’ atop an Apple Store table in Georgetown

Following his widely publicized meeting with President Donald Trump at the White House this morning, Kanye West proceeded to make an appearance at the Apple Store located less than a mile from Georgetown University in Washington, DC. Though it’s unclear exactly what West was doing at the Apple Store — some local reports have him there for a Genius Bar appointment, but that remains unverified — he did proceed to stand on top of one of Apple’s signature wooden tables to deliver an impromptu “keynote.”

Jack Jenkins, a reporter for Religion News Service, was in attendance to capture the moment with his phone and share it on Twitter. Jenkins says West told the crowd an anecdote about having made a custom hat for Trump with an edited version of his signature “Make American Great Again” slogan, with the “again” cut out as it was disrespect to black Americans.

He’s announcing he made a hat for Trump that says “made an updated hat that says ‘make America great’ without the ‘again’...and Trump wore it!”

The whole scenario seems a bit surreal, and Jenkins says it concluded when West left the store, telling the crowd he was “going to Africa.” Nobody at the Apple Store appeared to have any prior knowledge of this event, or really any idea what had just transpired for that matter.

Apple Store employees wouldn’t comment on why Kanye was there, except one under his breath.

Me: “Why was Kanye here?”

Him: “Man, I think just being extra.”

Shoutout to the CNN reporter who tried to interview me after the Kanye incident.

“Hey, can you tell what just happened?”

“Yeah, but I’m also a reporter, just here by accident.”

“Oh really!” :: pause :: “Okay, but seriously WHAT was he saying?”
