Kanye West wants Apple to build ‘iPlane 1’ for President Trump, replacing Air Force One

“Kanye West wants President Donald Trump to fly in a plane designed by Apple,” Paige Leskin reports for Business Insider.

“In a meeting Thursday with Donald Trump, West proposed the iPlane 1, a hydrogen-powered plane that would replace the existing Air Force One,” Leskin reports. “West showed Trump the design on his iPhone X — which appeared to have a lock code of “000000”— and suggested that Apple be the one to build the plane.”

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

MacDailyNews Take: Indubitably, we live in interesting times.

Maybe Apple could get Hair Force One to whip up some fresh, fly planeOS posthaste?

Interns: Roll out the emergency keg, please.

  1. Who cares what this idiot thinks? Why would the president care to see him? It’s not like he has anything meaningful to contribute.
    I hope Apple tells him to shut up and to go about his parthetic ways.
    He should stick to his whore wife and move along.

    1. Why would the president care to see him?

      Because he’s black.

      Because the mainstream media and Democrats continue to slander and libel President Trump as a R-word and because many black people who vote listen to Kayne.

      In 2016, candidate Trump garnered 8% of the black vote.
      In 2012, Romney managed to get 6%.
      In 2008, McCain only got 4%.

      With black unemployment now at historically low levels under his watch, President Trump is sure to do even better with black voters in 2020.

        1. Black people, generally speaking, are not ideologues. We do not subscribe to the liberal vs. conservative political spectrum that underscores America’s national debate. Black people do not think in terms of left vs. right or collectivism vs. individualism. We do not debate socialism vs. capitalism or Americanism vs. Communism. We do not argue equality vs. freedom. Black people, surprise surprise, primarily focus on black and white. Our political spectrum is decidedly binary. As with all things, we see politics through race-colored glasses.

          So when 90% of black people vote for Democrats, it is not because black people are modern day Bolsheviks, or that we disapprove of Donald Trump, it is because there is a sense that this is the most anti-white thing to do. That, and it is a habit. It has become a cultural tradition that receives far less analysis than where to eat Thanksgiving dinner.

          When considering candidates and issues, there is no discussion of what is best for the country or community. Black people do not consider the cultural health of the nation or the economic strength of America, either domestically or globally. Such issues are summed up with “America is Racist,” and “White people have all the money.”

          It is not that we don’t have opinions, ironically, on an issue by issue basis, black people would typically find themselves in Hillary Clinton’s, “Basket full of Deplorables.”

          For example, the LGBT movement is viewed dubiously in the “community.” There is resentment when LGBT issues are called “civil rights issues,” and there is a peculiar sense that “someone” is pursuing the feminization of black men.

          Black people are mainly Christian. Particularly black women. We tend to agree with the Christian Right on issues of religion and morality.

          Black people do not trust the government; it’s a massive example of white power. We are skeptical of authority. We urgently seek equal treatment under the law and equal opportunity, but not utter equality. Black people do not like high taxes.

          Black people believe in the right to have guns, and view gun control as manifested racism. Black people are generally anti-illegal alien, feeling that Mexicans have taken from blacks what we have earned, especially jobs. Black people would preferably be employed as opposed to accepting government assistance.

          Unfortunately, we remain hypnotized by the racist rhetoric and racialist actions of the Democratic Party while the Republican Party continues to be terrified of the word ‘race’ and avoids the topic altogether.

          This is all changing though.

      1. Brutal – you apparently don’t know many African Americans. The community is aware that Kanye is crazy. Many of the comments on this thread are correct. The President should not be hosting him publicly in the Oval Office. The Presidency is a position that deserves dignity and respect. This is not a good look.
        Donald – please call Barak or George (hmmm, Kanye was not a big fan of George) for advice on how to navigate these waters more appropriately. Do NOT call Bill.

      2. Have you considered that Mr. West has made history by becoming the first person since 1865 to use a visit to the White House as a public platform to criticize the 13th Amendment? He described the abolition of slavery as a “trap door” that rewarded weaklings who could not win freedom on their own. He has previously described slavery as “a choice.”

        I do not think that is a message that will help Mr. Trump win African-American support.

        1. “I do not think that is a message that will help Mr. Trump win African-American support.”

          ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! The words and hug of Kayne West and presence of Hall of Famer Jim Brown that suffered racism in the early 1960s adding his voice speaks VOLUMES for how President Trump respects Blacks! That is respect with a capital R.

          Pay close attention: You and your liberal activist buddies on this forum can do absolutely NOTHING to change the inroads the president has paved into the Black community. He is just getting started, good to read your scared.

          Seriously, how fsking blind and partisan dumb can you ALL be! You WISH it doesn’t amount to anything, means NOTHING more than Democrats wishing to win elections and keep them back on our plantation. Plain to see as the nose on my face. But it amounts to a lot for the president and I wish him well for progress. Do you? Well, do you?

          FOR ONCE give credit to President Trump when credit is due. But we all know your partisan blindness will never change and as I have said before, you will never, ever give the president credit no matter what he does. You just proved it AGAIN with your quote above — not ONE word of support for even making the effort to listen.

          The simple reason is, you have to be an HONEST person to do that. Sorry, but you are disqualified.

          In closing, thanks for stopping by to add your voice and support for the president reaching out to help the black community… 🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕

            1. There is a clear difference. TX posts facts, irony and intelligent tongue-in-cheek provocation. You post idolatrous, sniveling tripe with ad hominem bigotry laden lies you can never back up. And I just point this out. Better get used to it.

            2. You are entitled to your uninformed opinion. Get used to what? More pseudo intellectual BS from an elitist activist? I deal with that DAILY. Bring it on, sonny. I’m more than ready…

          1. OK, GeoB, let’s get this straight without any misunderstandings. I don’t want to put words in your mouth. So,

            I said that I do not imagine that it helps Mr. Trump’s position in the African-American community (or anywhere else outside the white nationalist movement) for him to sit calmly with a smile on his face while one of his invited guests argues that the abolition of slavery was a mistake. Do you disagree? Just answer that question without a personal attack or change of subject.

            The race of the speaker isn’t the issue. Neither is his talent or fame. The issue is Mr. West’s defense of human bondage. Most decent Americans agree that slavery wasn’t a “choice” and that the Thirteenth Amendment was not a “trap.”

            Kanye West is certainly entitled to his opinion to the contrary, but if anybody other than a person of color said exactly the same things, they would be deservedly driven from polite society as hard-core racists. They would certainly not be invited to the White House… I hope.

            Reasonable people might disagree about whether Donald Trump’s presidency has been good for minority-group members. Surely, though, we can all agree about slavery!

            1. What we have to get straight is people are entitled to their opinions. I certainly don’t agree with everything that KWest said, but he is entitled to speak his mind and his own beliefs. What ticks me off about you is to focus on the minority of the event to sling arrows. You TOTALLY MISS THE BIG PICTURE that we need more honest no holds barred dialogue for all races to work together for the greater good. I thank President Trump for the time and effort. I know you will NOT…

            2. Wow. I observe that GeoB seems to think that support for slavery is an opinion that people should respectfully listen to. Yeah, some bad person can choose to believe that, but any good person should immediately and strongly say “I DISAGREE WITH YOU! In fact, you are morally wrong!”
              Right?!

              GeoB, do you really think it was an acceptable idea for the POTUS to sit quietly and grin while someone said that abolishing slavery was a bad idea?

            3. SO presedential!

              SO fit to be an inspiration to the free world… and those wanting to be free!

              Women… You have to treat them like shit.

              I sorta get away with things like that. (About bursting into Miss Universe pageant dressing rooms.)

              I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things.

              I’m very highly educated. I know words, I know the best words.

              Let me tell you, I’m a really smart guy.

              Sorry losers and haters, but my IQ is one of the highest—and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure, it’s not your fault.

              My fingers are long and beautiful, as, it has been well been documented, are various other parts of my body.

              I am self funding and will hire the best people… (Have you checked out the list, recently, of those who are criminals or have been fired for incompetence?)

              A certificate of live birth is not the same thing by any stretch of the imagination as a birth certificate.

              I am the least racist person there is. And I think most people that know me would tell you that. I am the least racist.

              Laziness is a trait in blacks.

              People are tired of these nice people.

              I will build a great wall — and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me — and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.

              I’ll tell you, it’s Big Business. If there is one word to describe Atlantic City, it’s Big Business. Or two words—Big Business.

              In life you have to rely on the past, and that’s called history.

      3. Actually, black unemployment fell more during Obama’s tenure than with Trump.
        ———–
        As far as black unemployment is concerned, while the number has in fact fallen, it has been doing so steadily for years. And as Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA.) points out, the real issue in the black community is underemployment, not just unemployment.

        “Black unemployment has been on the decline since 2011, and it’s declined in other years more than in Trump’s one year,” Richmond said. “But what he doesn’t talk about is African-American underemployment. He doesn’t talk about the fact that black unemployment is twice that of white unemployment. He doesn’t talk about wage gaps between the two races, wealth disparities, income disparities…and you will see that it is a very basic and adolescent way to look at African American communities.”
        “He’s standing on the back of the success of President Obama and his economy,” Richmond added.

    2. ‘Why would the President care to see him ‘?

      Because he is an insecure megalomaniac who for days couldn’t wait for the photo opp with an all too rare ‘celebrity’ who would praise him.

      Shame a good number of Americans still can’t see it.

    3. Partisan “Patriot “ it’s called dialogue, reaching out to find solutions. I don’t understand all the negative comments here. Listen up people, this is a GOOD THING!!!…

      1. Kanye West and his bride Kim Kardashian have audiences with the White House whenever they choose because they are celebrities and Trump adores celebrities. He’s said so himself, and has always conspired to achieve premier celebrity status for himself. This isn’t fake news; Trump himself entrenched this in the media a long time ago. In fact, he doesn’t deny it. Why should he? As he’s said, any publicity is good publicity. You just have to admire someone who is the total opposite of a politician, do you not? A politician kisses babies, shakes hands, tries to be all things to all people in order to get votes. Trump has never been comfortable with his so-called handlers, who try to regulate his speech and temper his emotions. They are small people who are attempting to contain a large personality. Caesar is a force unto himself and requires no interpreters, no intercessions, no explanations; only tribute.

        1. Well then, fingers crossed President Trump can break the Republican mold and work with celebrities to improve the black community. From all the leftist positive comments here, good to read we all agree on the mission. Yes, it is wonderful to DREAM and we all know how highly the Democrats, Hollywood and Apple fans value dreamers…

          1. Republicans have dreams too, and how! And they worked for them, tirelessly, for decades. The deck was usually stacked against them, since 1960 or so, but they found ways to lift themselves by their bootstaps — a physical impossibility, but not a political one, not when you have enough financially motivated donors and are willing to look the other way once in a while. Of course, Democrats were doing similar things all along, and it’s a crying shame that every single contest has to feature intemperate shouting about the lesser of two evils, or about good versus evil, or about corruption versus innocence, or about socialism versus capitalism, about the left wing and the right wing. But that’s politics. It’s business as usual. I can live with the rancour because it’s all I’ve ever known, but I’d like the streak to keep going a while longer.. in my old age I don’t want to have to witness an ugly tipping point — a constitutional crisis or a coup, like what happened in Russia in 1917 or France in 1789 or the United States of America in 1861 because of extreme inequality and different opinions about the meaning of the word justice.

            Cue: song, For What It’s Worth, Buffalo Springfield, 1967

    4. “whore wife?!?!?!” How nice and thoughtful of you.

      “Who cares what this idiot thinks?”

      Well, I care for the black community for one. Kayne West and Jim Brown care for the black community. President Donald J. Trump cares for the black community. Americans of all politics care for the black community.

      But you do NOT. Got it and thanks for your support advancing race relations…

  2. The iPlane would be beautiful, luxurious, fast, and powerful. It would only let you cruise at 37,000 feet and above, and only land at Apple authorised airports.

    If the iPlane has an engine problem, the engine cowlings are welded to the wings, so you need to replace the whole wing too. To do the repairs, iPlane must be sent to an Apple-certified engineer who then has to send it to Apple anyway. If you can’t truck it or piggy back it NASA style, well yeah…

      1. I’m interesting in finding out where exactly you think MDN is embarrassing itself?

        By covering it? (It has to do with Apple, you know.)

        By requesting the “emergency keg?” (I’d be opting for something stronger, myself.)

        By joking about Apple having Craig Federighi (Hair Force One) working on planeOS? (Pretty funny, actually.)

        So, how?

        1. by covering one crazy, delusional and out of touch idiot mind showing some pure bullshit unrelated to Apple to some other crazy, delusional and out of touch idiot mind.
          That’s how. Not worth covering, even for a Trumpist.

            1. it does not matter what one idiot thinks Apple should do, there’s 200 million versions of of that every day. This is not about Apple but about just another idiot.

    1. You’re a self-proclaimed artist, just like Kanye West. Artists tend to exemplify a particular self-regard that drifts toward the avant-garde, the outré, the outrageous; exactly the self-absorbed qualities that rot the minds of the voter base and lead to the ascension of Napoleonic über-mensch.

  3. Beautiful moment in history, just beautiful. It’s no coincidence that Apple’s stock price has risen 80% (on its way to 100%) since President Trump took office. Keep these stories coming MDN, they are highly relevant to Apple and as a side benefit all of the posing losers come out of the woodwork to squeal like pigs, it’s really amazing.

    1. If you look at AAPL over the last ten years, there has been a pretty consistent upward average trajectory. Where there have been significant dips in late 2012 and mid 2015, corrections followed over the following 18-24 months so that the overall trajectory remains broadly the same. There has been a period of consistently strong growth since May 2016, long before the last election.

      I don’t see any sign that that AAPL’s performance in the last couple of years is significantly better or worse than during any other similar time and nor can I detect any indication that presidents of either party have made any meaningful positive or negative impact on AAPL’s performance.

      Charts can create quite different impressions depending on whether the Y axis is linear or logarithmic and if zero is suppressed, so for clarity, I prefer to use simple graphs such as this one.
      http://bigcharts.marketwatch.com/quickchart/quickchart.asp?symb=AAPL&insttype=&freq=2&show=&time=13

  4. Let’s compare recent statements from the black community to advance their cause.

    Kayne West: “As black people, we have to take responsibility for what we’re doing.”

    Eric Holder: “No, when they go low we kick them.”

    Please tell me again Democrats, who is uncivil and insane?!?

    Be afraid, be very afraid your stranglehold on the black community is coming to a well deserved END…
