Kimmel: Obama Reads Trump's Mean Tweet, Achieves Mic-Drop Moment

When Barack Obama agreed to read a series of mean tweets on Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, he probably didn’t expect one of them to be from presidential candidate Donald Trump.

After a series of putdowns equating POTUS to Nickelback, bad hair conditioner and the Sharknado franchise, the president read aloud a recent quip from Trump declaring that “President Obama will go down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States!” Firing back, Obama remarked that “at least I will go down as a president” before dropping the mic cellphone.

Later, during a sit-down with Kimmel, Obama expressed concern about Trump’s behavior, where he articulated that “there is a certain responsibility and expectation in terms of how you behave and how you present yourself” as a presidential candidate.

“Look, we joke about Donald Trump, but I do think… there’s something qualitatively different about the way [he] has operated in the political sphere,” Obama said. “[W]hat we haven’t seen before, I think, is somebody questioning the integrity of elections and the will of the people… a politics based on putting down, in very explicit terms, Muslim Americans who are patriots, or describing women not in terms of their intellect and their character, but on a 1-10 score.”

Watch excerpts from Obama’s Kimmel appearance above, then drop a comment and let us know if you agree or disagree with his feelings regarding Trump.

    Yes, 100% correct. Human Decency and being civilize is needed to be a leader and sorry Trump does not exhibit that. Also knowledge of how our Country operates.

      So ignoring the frantic pleas for help of people you put in harms way and watching them die equates to “being civilized” in your mind? Really?

  2. Chris says:

    Also you know just the other countries names too

  3. Glenn says:

    Yet it is totally appropriate for a sitting president to even appear on late night tv, much less criticize a candidate who seems, more so everyday, to be speaking the truth about Obama/Clinton issues that the mainstream media will not mention.

    • Kevin In CT says:

      Please Glenn, let us not upset “management” here!

    • Mary says:

      LOL. Truth hurts doesn’t it when talking about the clueless wonder. Do you think it is appropriate for a candidate to tweet at 3:00 am attacking citizens and ramble on like a raving fool?

    • Gina says:

      But on the other hand, it’s completely acceptable for the man who wants to be President to go on rants and raves about basically every group that is against him? He can insult people by the thousands, right? I guess so, as long as he doesn’t do it on late-night tv.

    • *snort* I love how you’re trying to use this to throw shade when Trump’s daily behavior is so much worse.
      .
      This election is like watching a shipping war involving crack ships: One side clearly has no legitimacy due to mounting evidence, but doggedly presses on anyway, in the hopes of maybe beating down their opponent.

      Good luck, good sir. You are going to to need it.

    I prefer the usual Celebrity editions of Mean Tweets with different celebs.

    Obama really screwed the US with Obamacare.

    • Wordsmith says:

      I agree. Having health insurance and not dying of cancer totally blows…

    • HAP says:

      Single payer or Medicare for all, which is what the rest of the industrialized world has could not be passed because the Republican would not allow it. We all know that healthcare should be a very profitable endeavor, right?

      • Ben says:

        Indeed. Still baffles me how much America complain about getting halfway towards what is considered a basic human right where I live.

        • Jen says:

          Only half of America. Pickles might be the half that want to “repeal and replace” (replace with what, I ask) the Affordable Care Act, but many also believe health care should be achievable and affordable for everyone in the country and support the steps the act put in place and the fixes that it will take in future to shore up what’s not working.

    Can’t watt until this charlatan is out of office and out of sight. The Borgias would do better.

  7. fiberlicious says:

    Say what you will about President Obama, but one thing is undeniable: the man is a class act.

  8. Lisa F Morris says:

    This election scares the crap out of me. I think about all the crazy stuff going on in the world and I feel if Trump wins this election it’s going to be the beginning of the end. It doesn’t make since to vote for him.

    • Kevin In CT says:

      Could “management” at least make an attempt to weed out the paid shills here?????

    • J in CA says:

      Do you even think for yourself? Just look at all of the things Hillary has done. She is literally a federal criminal running for the highest office in the land, and the only reason she’s able to be there is because the current administration has protected her the entire time. None of the stupid crap that Trump has said even comes close to the sheer corruption and general ineptitude shown by Clinton. Yet, even with knowing all of this, you are more concerned with Trump not “acting” like a President? Think about that for a second. If that’s the BS that they have you sold on, you have got some serious, serious issues.

    “he probably didn’t expect one of them to be from presidential candidate Donald Trump” More likely he did expect it because it was totally scripted like most of the gags on late night shows.
