WATCH: President Obama Reads ‘Mean Tweets’ About himself

Barack Obama, Jimmy Kimmel

Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel likes to have celebrities read “mean tweets” about themselves, and on Thursday he got an especially prominent person to do it: President Obama.

“Is there any way we could fly Obama to some golf course halfway around the world and just leave him there?” Obama said in quoting a tweet from RWSurferGirl (we’re assuming the RW stands for “right wing.”)

“Well … RWSurferGirl,” Obama replied, “I think that’s a great idea.”

The president then read another tweet: “A 30 rack of Coors Light is $23 now at Sun Stop. Thanks, Obama.”

“Mean Tweets” is a frequent bit on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Obama chucked at another missive from one of his Twitter critics: “How do you make Obama’s eyes light up? Shine a flashlight in his ears.”

“That’s pretty good,” Obama said.
