Kanye West met with President Donald Trump at the White House on Thursday, much to the consternation of many who continued to voice their frustrations at rapper’s support for the United States' divisive commander-in-chief. But as is par for the course on social media, there were still plenty of people ready to make light of affairs.

According to CNN, the aim of the meeting was to focus on “urban revitalization, workforce training, African-American unemployment, potential future clemencies, and crime in Chicago.” The president also signed the Music Modernization Act, which guarantees increased and faster royalty payments for performers, songwriters, and producers.

But whatever got discussed was quickly buried under a barrage of online reaction — positive, negative, and comical. We’ve rounded up some of the most notable reactions below.
