Aanndd it’s back – but this time with a presidential edition, if you know what we mean 😉
If there was one thing that Jimmy Kimmel is good at, it’s getting celebrities to read mean tweets about themselves. Who doesn’t remember this one, or the ones before that, right?
Recently, he one-upped himself and featured a kinda sorta celebrity that you wouldn’t have expected to appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”. Heck, Jimmy Kimmel himself called it the “President Obama Edition”.
Yes, Barack Obama of the US made his first appearance on the show since he became president. Amongst the mean tweets that he read are such as, “Is there anyway we could fly Obama to some golf course halfway around the world and just leave hime there?” and “How do you make Obama’s eyes light up? Shine a torchlight in his ears.”
Of course, he does have quite a sense of humour 😉
Watch it here:
The president later divulged that he dodged the worst of Twitter’s vitriol by simply not tweeting, and said that although his daughters, Sasha and Malia, have the newest smartphones, he’s not allowed to use the “new fangled” technology. “I still have a Blackberry. I don’t text, I e-mail,” the he said.
Also, when asked if he could share Hillary Clinton’s email address – a reference to the ex-Secretary of State’s controversy over the use of a private email account while in office – Obama said that he wasn’t at liberty to divulge the information.
“I don’t think she’d want you to have it, frankly,” he told Jimmy Kimmel.
