President Barack Obama reads “Mean Tweets” on Jimmy Kimmel Live

President Barack Obama appeared as a guest on Thursday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC.

Before he sat down for an interview with Kimmel, Obama took part in the show’s popular recurring segment, “Mean Tweets,” reading aloud the jabs that random trolls and other people have typed about him on Twitter. Roll the clip!

That said, even the president knew these weren’t all that mean, joking to Kimmel that the Republican members of Congress have said much worse things about him during his two terms in the White House!

And this Q&A leads to some funny, sincere answers as well as some that could be taken way out of context by insincere people.
