President Obama is used to being insulted so he’s learned to take jabs in his stride, and nowhere is that more apparent than while reading out “Mean Tweets” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
POTUS did the honor for the second and (probably) last time on Monday, and the ABC late-night show dug up with some cutting insults via social media.
“Being president is a tough job, it’s one of the only jobs where you get a new approval rating every day, and now that we have this thing called social media the president gets hundreds of judgments every hour of every day,” Jimmy Kimmel said.
“And tonight, for the second time, President Obama has agreed to read them — for our second-ever Presidential Edition of ‘Mean Tweets.'”
Among the offenses were: “Obama couldn’t negotiate getting a Whopper without pickles,” and “Just found out my daughter shares a birthday with Obama PUKE.”
Our personal favorite, however, is, “Barack Obama, do you even lift!?”
“Well, I lifted the ban on Cuban cigars, that’s worth something,” the outgoing president quipped.
The real clincher came from @realDonaldTrump, however, who tweeted: “President Obama will go down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States!”
In a perfect drop-the-mic moment to end his term late-night style, Obama replied: “Well, @realDonaldTrump, at least I will go down as a president.”
