President Obama Reads Mean Tweets About Himself

Obama2.jpg

Ask most politicians to search for themselves on Twitter and it's likely their screens will freeze. Ask the same of the leader of the free world, on the other hand, and it's likely the screen will closer resemble the email inbox from Bruce Almighty, just with added sarcasm. 

So kudos to President Barack Obama, then, who's just gone on Jimmy Kimmel's TV show and taken part in the host's ongoing segment Celebrities Read Mean Tweets About Themselves. Which is no easy task considering all the important issues - price of cheap beer, Obama’s choice of jeans - that are fired his way.

So far, comic commander-and-chief Kimmel has asked the great and the good of the A-list to read a single, dryly layered Tweet about themselves, but he gives the 44th President of the United States a good handful, dubbing it the President Obama Edition.

Naturally, showing democratic self-deprecation in spades, and further cementing his status as the coolest leader on the planet, Obama handles it all brilliantly. Just watch his measured ‘LOL’ retort for proof of that.

Though while the show's research team doubtlessly went to painstaking lengths to amass the meanest comments for Obama, next time it might be easier to simply scroll through the Fox News timeline.
