U.S. Rep. Justin Amash questioned Monday why President Barack Obama met with rapper Kendrick Lamar but has not accepted his own offer to discuss more “critical” issues such as government surveillance.

The Democratic president met with the Grammy-winning rapper in late October, senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said on a Buzzfeed podcast published this week, and the two shared a moment in the Oval Office.

“Yet he won't meet with me to discuss civil liberties and surveillance issues despite repeated requests,” Amash, a Michigan Republican from Cascade Township, wrote on Twitter.

The civil libertarian later called it “great” that Obama met with Lamar, but he said the president should also meet with members of Congress on critical issues.

Kendrick Lamar did a song with Taylor Swift. When Amash collaborates with Taylor Swift then he'll be worthy of Obama's respect and attention.
