President Obama Reads ‘Mean Tweets’ From Twitter Trolls On “Jimmy Kimmel Live”

If you’re familiar with “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, I’m sure you’d know about the “Mean Tweets” segment the show does sometimes. It involves pretty big celebrities growing thick skin and actually reading the harsh criticism lobbed their way by people on Twitter. A lot of the time, musicians sit down and read the tweets, and the results are usually hilarious.

But this time, the commander-in-chief of the free world sat down to read a few of the things Twitter users had to say about his work as president, his incessant love of golfing, his ears and why certain frivolous things cost so much money under his presidency.

President Obama had a good attitude about the whole thing though, even laughing at some of the criticisms and correcting the grammar of others, proving, as always, that he’s unbothered by the haters. As he told Kimmel after the segment, “You should see what the senate says about me.”

It was a fun clip to watch. Check out how President Obama handles the jokes and jabs for yourself below:
