Kanye West wants President Donald Trump to ditch Air Force One and force Apple to build him a really neat concept airplane that he saw a GIF of on the internet.

No, this is not a new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. This is what American politics have devolved to. During a visit to the White House today, West shared a bunch of his outlandish ideas with the president — while revealing his totally insecure iPhone passcode in the process.

“If he don’t look good, we don’t look good. This is our president,” West told reporters in the Oval Office. “He has to be the freshest, the flyest.”

In a video of his visit, West can be seen unlocking his iPhone X or iPhone XS with a passcode of 000000. Why he didn’t use Face ID instead is a mystery, but once he got his iPhone unlocked, the rapper dove headfirst into the iPlane, a hydrogen-powered plane concept he saw online.

The iPlane photo West showed Trump is apparently a 2012 concept from an industrial designer. Apple doesn’t manufacture planes (and is currently having a hard enough time getting its self-driving car project on the road). The role of Air Force One is currently being served by converted military versions of the Boeing 747.
