Obama reads ‘mean’ tweets in Kimmel show

Los Angeles –  President Barack Obama entertained Jimmy Kimmel’s audience with some of the mean tweets sent his way, beginning with one sent by Donald Trump in August when he said “President Obama will go down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States.”

Obama’s reply: “Really? Well, (at) realDonaldTrump, at least I will go down as a president.”

The president appeared on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” during the middle of his three-day visit to Nevada and California, where he is campaigning and raising money for presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and other Democratic candidates.  The segment contained a mix of humor and serious talk about the current election.

Kimmel routinely has celebrities read some of the mean tweets sent their way. Another person asked: “Barack Obama, bro do you even lift?”

“Well, I lifted the ban on Cuban cigars. That’s worth something,” Obama replied.

Obama, a big sports fan, was asked if he was happy that the Chicago Cubs were going to the World Series. Obama appeared to have some trouble getting “yes” out.

“To see just how happy everybody was, I actually felt pretty good.  I am rooting for hometown team even though it is not my team.”

Comedian Bill Murray is a big Cubs fan, and Obama told of his recent visit to the White House. He said they had a putting contest in the Oval Office and Murray won $5 from him.
