Jimmy Kimmel invited President Obama on Jimmy Kimmel Live to participate in one of our favorite segments: Mean Tweets. This is where the celebrity talents literally read the meanest tweets about them. President Obama was such a good sport, as he read hilarious tweets like, “Obama’s hair is looking grayer these days. Can’t imagine why since he doesn’t seem to be one bit worried about all that’s going on.” and “A 30 rack of coors light is $23 now at Sun Stop. Thanks, Obama.”
Many celebrities are dragged through the mud on social media, but President Obama has got to be one of the most criticized public figures there is. We’re sure there were much meaner tweets sent to the president as the ones he read were mild, at best, but still hilarious.
President Obama’s visit wasn’t only for laughs, he sat and spoke with Kimmel about the tragic shooting of two Ferguson police officers as well.
“What had been happening in Ferguson was oppressive and objectionable and was worthy of protest,” Obama says. “But there was no excuse for criminal acts. Whoever fired those shots shouldn’t detract from the issue – they’re criminals. They need to be arrested. And then what we need to do is make sure that like-minded, good-spirited people on both sides – law enforcement who have a terrifically tough job and people who understandably don’t want to be stopped just because of their race – are able to work together to come up with some good answers.
“In the same way that you can’t generalize about police officers who do an extraordinarily tough job. . . you can’t generalize about protestors, who, it turns out, had some very legitimate grievances,” Obama continues. “If people of goodwill – which is the overwhelming majority of Americans – are working together, these are problems we can solve.”
