President Obama was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! yesterday where he read some of the probably millions of mean tweets that are sent to his Twitter account every year. And you’ve got to admit, whether you like the guy or not, it says a lot about him that he’d come on a national late night talk show and be cool about reading hate tweets.
The ‘All President Obama Edition of Mean Tweets‘ included such gems as “Is there any way we could fly Obama to some golf course half way around the world and just leave him there?” from @RWSurferGirl.
Whereas @campaignrpoz had something to be ‘thankful’ about, “A 30 rack of Coors Light is $23 now at Sun Stop. Thanks, Obama”.
@TPPratt even had some fashion advice with “I’m alright with the President wearing jeans. I am not alright with the President wearing THOSE jeans.”
Now, let’s face it, none of these were actual ‘mean tweets’, as all you have to do is to read his Twitter feed to know that — there’s some pretty shocking stuff there. But, they were quite funny and Obama is hilarious as he reads them. Quite an actor even.
