Most mean tweets are made by trolls who hide behind the anonymity and elusiveness of the Internet. I mean, what are the odds that anyone as busy as the President of the United States will actually have the time to notice a shade-filled tweet?
Unfortunately for 9 unsuspecting Twitter users, Barack Obama highlighted their not-so nice commentary during a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
The tweets dished on everything from clowning Obama’s dad jeans to blaming him for faulty hair conditioner, but in a shocking turn of events, the meanest tweet read by the current president were made by presidential hopeful Donald Trump.
POTUS read,”President Obama will go down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States,” to which he effortlessly replied, “Well, @realDonaldTrump, at least I will go down as a president.” *Drops mic*
President Obama has spent the last weeks of his final term in office campaigning in support of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Side note: does anybody else wonder what Barack Obama will change his Twitter handle (it’s currently POTUS) to once a new president is elected?
