Barack Obama Reads 'Mean Tweets' On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

Reason #546,332,421 we're going to miss President Obama: He knows how to take a joke.

During Monday night's episode of ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," he read a cutthroat round of "mean tweets" targeted at himself. He took the insults like a total champ.

This was the second time Obama's been featured in this particular segment of the show, with his first appearance happening back in March 2015.

Apparently, he felt the tweets from round one were "underwhelming."

Kimmel spoke with The Hollywood Reporter in September about the process behind picking the right tweets, and said,

So they went through and they cherry-picked the 'mean tweets' that they thought would be appropriate for the president. And he sat down and he just starts looking at them and he goes, 'You guys…you missed a lot of…these are not mean enough.'



By the looks of it, the president was definitely entertained by this round of tweets.

He began with a mean tweet that called him the "Nickelback of presidents."

Then, he read from Twitter users with fast food on the mind.

The tweets said things like, "Obama couldn't negotiate getting a Whopper without pickles," and "I bet Obama likes mustard on his hotdogs because he's gross."


Out of all the nonsensical tweets that were read, my favorite was this one:

My mom bought new conditioner and it sucks it isn't even conditioning my hair I blame Obama.

Good one! Let's definitely blame Barack Obama for your hair's lack of moisture!


The kicker was when one of Donald Trump's tweets was featured. It read,

President Obama will go down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States!

Obama then responded in the smoothest way possible. He said,

Well, at least I will go down as a 'president.'



Keep being cool AF, Obama.
