“Saturday Night Live” opened its third show of the season with an amusing spoof of Kanye West’s buzzed-about meeting with President Donald Trump at the White House Thursday. And a pair of newly-released Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Triple White” sneakers made an appearance during the skit.
Alec Baldwin reprised his role as Trump — wig and all — while “SNL” cast member Chris Redd took on the rapper-turned-designer complete with his bright red “Make American Great Again” cap. “I flew here using the power of this hat,” he said during introductions.
Not two minutes into the parody, Baldwin’s Trump pulls out the all-white Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 sneakers from under his large wooden desk. “Kanye, I want to thank you for giving me a pair of your sneakers,” he said. “They’re perfect for me because they’re white, they’re wide and they’re never gonna be worth as much as you say they are.”
During West’s actual meeting with Trump Thursday, he went on a 10-minute monologue, speaking on a range of subjects from mental health to “Superman” to his partnership with Adidas. “You gave me the heart to go to Adidas. This Adidas thing made me a billionaire,” he told the president.

Meanwhile, West was back on twitter again Saturday night after a short hiatus. He posted a series of videos that tackled mind control, among other things.
