GEORGETOWN, Wash. (CelebrityAccess) A visit to, and a speech at, the White House was not Kanye West’s only public appearance yesterday, also appearing atop a table at a Georgetown, Wash., Apple Store.
West, next to football legend Jim Brown, gave an impassioned speech in the Oval Office about self-empowerment that at times wandered into other subjects and at one point he accidentally revealed his iPhone password is a series of six zeroes, which may have inspired Ye to take a trip to the Genius Bar.
There, according to a tweet by Religion News Service reporter Jack Jenkins, the performer hopped up on a table after asking if he could give a “keynote.” He told visitors he made “an updated hat” for President Donald Trump that says Make America Great without the “Again” part, “and Trump wore it!”

Jenkins said he had a chance to talk to West for a second who said he was heading to Africa, which would be consistent with what he told TMZ on Oct. 1 when he said that was where he was going to record. Meanwhile, CNN reporter Caroline Kelly posted video of the speech and elaborated on the “again” part, quoting Ye as saying the last word was removed because it hurts black people “because we say, was America ever great for us? So we made a updated hat that said, Imake [sic] America great, and Trump wore the hat so he is open to adjusting and listening”

“Apple Store employees wouldn’t comment on why Kanye was there, except one under his breath,” Jenkins said. “Me: ‘Why was Kanye here?’ Him: ‘Man, I think just being extra.’”
Meanwhile, West wants to swap out Air Force One with “iPlane 1,” an hydrogen-powered plane built by Apple.
