President Obama was a good sport as he read scathing messages about him during the "mean tweets" segment of Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, but he got the chance to respond with a searing dig to one. from Donald Trump himself!
Obama's second term as president is coming to an end, but one thing's for certain is his wits will never end.
Last week, during his first live broadcast of Jimmy Kimmel Live to follow one of those presidential debates that tickled Obama's funnybone, Kimmel announced POTUS would return visit to the show today - 15 days ahead of the election.
Obama concluded the segment by saying that when he was elected in 2008, he made sure to be protective of numerous norms, standards, values, and customs that have made America so successful over the course of its history.
Obama's witty response: "Well.at least I will go down as a President", followed by a phone drop.
Although he joked during the hilarious sketch, he got serious when he sat down for a chat with the host to talk about the controversial election.
Mr Kimmel said he knew that Mr Obama had to leave, but asked if his wife Michelle would be able to stay for another four years.
So they went through and they cherry-picked the "mean tweets" that they thought would be appropriate for the president. And since half the race for the White House includes Donald Trump, Kimmel couldn't help but ask the president about the Republican nominee's antics on and off the campaign trail. "He won repeatedly", Obama admitted, poking fun at Donald Trump by saying that the game was "rigged". Among the highlights:"Barack Obama is the Nickelback of presidents;" "Obama couldn't negotiate getting a Whopper without pickles"; and "My mom bought new conditioner and it sucks - it isn't even conditioning my hair".
"I started talking to Michelle about the implications of social media and what all this means", he said. While the "Mean Tweets" segment is amusing, it's important to remember that any words you put out on the internet could possibly be seen by anyone.
"Most of the time", Obama said with a laugh.
