Kanye West Tells Trump He Was Misdiagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Claims He's Just Sleep-Deprived
Months after telling the world that he suffered from bipolar disorder — and even referencing it on the cover his latest album, Ye, back in June — Kanye West has said that he was “misdiagnosed” with the condition. The revelation came during a bizarre meeting with President Donald Trump in the Oval Office on Thursday afternoon.
“What I think is we don’t need sentences, we need pardons. We need to talk to people. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, I was connected with a neuropsychologist that works with the athletes in the NBA and NFL. He looked at my brain,” he began, according to video obtained by CBS.
After saying that he had a “98 percentile IQ test,” West, 42, went on to state that the doctor told him “I wasn’t actually bipolar, I had sleep deprivation which can cause dementia 10 to 20 years from now when I wouldn’t even remember my son’s name.”
President Trump is apparently also a light sleeper, reportedly getting approximately four hours on average each night.

Over the course of the lengthy discussion, the hip hop superstar touched on his famous in-laws, the Kardashians, albeit briefly. “I’m married to a family that..you know, not a lot of male energy going on there. But it’s beautiful, though!”
This provided a segue into his critique of Hillary Clinton‘s 2016 election campaign, and the apparent alienation caused by her slogan. “I love Hillary, I love everybody, but the campaign ‘I’m With Her’ just didn’t make me feel, as a guy that didn’t get to see my dad all the time, like a guy could play catch with his son.”
The antidote for this feeling, he says, came in the form of a #MAGA hat.
“There was something about when I put this hat on, I feel like Superman,” he told Trump. “You made a Superman. That’s my favorite super hero. And you made a Superman cape for me.”
