US President appears in clip for Jimmy Kimmel's 'Mean Tweets' segment
President Obama has appeared in a second edition of Jimmy Kimmel’s popular ‘Mean Tweets’ segment.
The segment, which features on Kimmel’s US talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live, sees celebrities reading negative tweets people have posted about them online.
In this new clip, Obama reads a tweet from Donald Trump, which saw the Republican candidate claim that Obama would go down as the “worst president in history”. Obama’s response: “Well, at least I will go down as a president”.
Elsewhere in the video, Obama recites a tweet in which he is described as “the Nickelback of presidents”. Watch in full below.
Obama previously appeared on Kimmel for the segment in March 2015. Watch the first edition below.
Obama recently revealed that he works out to Beyoncé and Black Eyed Peas, sharing the soundtrack to his presidential workouts. The 10-song playlist includes classic songs by Bob Marley, Nina Simone and Sting. More recent hits by Jay Z and Drake feature too. Perhaps most surprisingly, the outgoing president is partial to ‘Emergency’, a little-known 2015 single by Swedish electro duo Icona Pop.
Last week, Frank Ocean and Chance The Rapper were among the attendees for the White House State Dinner. The annual invite-only black tie event was the last hosted by President Obama. Frank and Chance were also joined by a host of other famous guests, including Jerry Seinfeld and Gwen Stefani.
Ocean (who wore black and white checkered Vans) arrived at the White House with his mother, Katonya Breaux, while Chance The Rapper also brought along a parent, his father Ken Bennett. Chance’s dad previously served as an aide to former Chicago mayor Harold Washington, where he worked with then-Senator Obama.
