Donald Trump had a come-to-Yeezus moment on Thursday. Kanye West greeted the president with a hug at their White House lunch, and the moment was captured for posterity. Trump has said he’s germophobic but he tolerated the close body contact with West, who was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

Some were touched.
Some felt sympathy for West’s wife, Kim Kardashian.
