Obama reads Trump's mean tweets about him on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

That was President Obama's response when Jimmy Kimmel asked if he knew how bad the Trump Tape would be as soon as he watched it.

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.

Kimmel asked if Obama would have considered running again if it was legal. "I can say, having worked with her, she is smart as a whip, she does her homework, she works really hard, she cares deeply about working families in this country", he said. As tensions rise between current presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Obama is giving us all something to smile about - at least until the November 8th election.

"Well, I tell you what - it helps in OH that we've got Democrats in charge of the machines", Obama said during a September 2008 campaign stop to applause. Obama read tweets comparing him to Sharknado ("loud, stupid, and over-hyped") and calling both his dance moves and fashion sense into question ("Barack Obama dances like how his jeans look").

In an interview with Kimmel, the outgoing commander in chief also weighed in on the three rounds of verbal sparring disguised as debates between republican candidate Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton that concluded last week.

He said: "If I were able to run for a third term, Michelle would divorce me, so it's useful that I don't have that choice to make".

Obama appeared in Kimmel's "Mean Tweets" segment, reading less-than-pleasant Twitter messages directed at him-including a tweet from one @realDonaldTrump.

"Those are all part and process of making sure that our democracy works for everyone", Obama said then.

"Well, I lifted the ban on Cuban cigars, that's something", Obama retorted.

We're already used to hearing Donald Trump claiming that the Democrats and other organizations are trying to manipulate the elections in order to stop him for winning, but his latest declaration, made this Tuesday in Miami, is more than just interesting.
