Watch Obama Read Mean Tweets About Himself

obama_mean_tweets

Obama may be the master of sick ad-libbed burns, but he’s also the kind of guy who has no problem poking fun at himself, as he did last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The president appeared on the show, and in grand Kimmel tradition, took part in the late night host’s popular recurring gag, “Mean Tweets.”

Backed by REM’s somber “Everybody Hurts,” Obama does his bit in a perfect deadpan.
