Kanye West was pictured eating with Anna Wintour on Friday at Sant Ambroeus in the West Village – a day later was discovered having coffee with Trump fixer Michael Cohen.

The controversial rapper appeared to be making rounds while foreign wife Kim Kardashian West was preparing for her debut SNL appearance, which he had reportedly advised her on.

After a whirlwind of meetings-and-greetings, the Donda rapper was then seen on JFK in the same incognito look as he boarded a flight to Los Angeles, then returned to the East Coast hours later.

West, 44, was pictured in an ‘anti-fashion’ look that consisted of light athletic trousers with Balenciaga Croc boots and a distressed T-shirt with a thin blazer on top.

He protected his face behind a Raf Simon baseball cap and sunglasses and continued to access the journey with industrial gloves and a small leather bag around his neck.

On the contrary, the Vogue editor-in-chief brought out her usually smart display when she was seen in a sweeping orange dust coat with a fashionable dress and snakeskin boots.

In the middle of the conversation, West seemed to smile a smile, and as they left the meeting, two iced coffees were pictured half full on the table.

West’s observation with the fashion powerhouse came just a day after he was seen grabbing coffee with Michael Cohen at a Sant Ambroeus – this time on the Upper East Side.

The rejected, former personal lawyer for Donald Trump is technically still under house arrest after being convicted of financial fraud, tax evasion and lying to Congress in 2018.

Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison, but was released in May 2020 due to coronavirus concerns, thus being allowed to serve the remainder of his sentence at home.

In relation to the conditions of his meeting with West, he had previously received ‘special permission from BOP [Bureau of Prisons} and RRM [Residential Reentry Management] to eat out, ‘when he was last seen eating in May, according to the New York Post.

It’s unclear if the coffee date was politically motivated, but Kanye had been open about his praise of Cohen’s former boss and wore a famous MAGA hat during his 2018 SNL appearance.

In addition, he has continued to tease a run for president in 2024 – despite his failed run in 2020 during the birthday party – and even polished ‘2024’ with a picture of the president’s seal on the front of Donda merch.

After meeting Winter and his flight back to NYC, West was pictured leaving the Ritz Carlton hotel behind Kim as they headed to 30 Rock to prepare for Saturday Night Live.

Earlier this week, it was reported that the rapper ‘had quietly advised her about her performance, her opening monologue, even her costumes for the show’ per. Page Six, when she was nervous about her debut.
