President Barack Obama might want to consider being a comedian after his term is over. Ok, maybe not, but he sure does know how to crack a joke.
The nation’s President made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night and participated in one of the best segments on the show. In a segment called “Mean Tweets,” stars read out loud tweets written about them from unkind social media users. Needless to say, Obama was all game.
“I think it’s important to remember that presidents are people, too, and from time to time we give celebrities the chance to read some of the mean things people tweet about them. Tonight, we extended that same courtesy to our commander-in-chief,” Kimmel told the audience.
Obama started the segment with a tweet from @carold501. “Obama’s hair is looking grayer these days. Can’t imagine why since he doesn’t seem to be one bit worried about all that’s going on,” the 53-year-old read.
He continued with a tweet by @RWSurferGirl, “Is there any way we could fly Obama to some golf course halfway around the world and just leave him there.”
@campaignrpoz tweeted, “A 30 rack of coors light is $23 now at Sun Stop. Thanks, Obama.”
Another social media user wrote, “How do you make Obama’s eyes light up? Shine a flashlight in his ears.”
@theautho tweeted, “Somebody send obama some lifehacks on how to be a good president. haha. like, i bet that would help. lol.”
And finally, the President read a tweet by @TPPratt that wrote, “I am alright with the President wearing jeans. I am not alright with the President wearing THOSE jeans.”
During the segment, the Hawaii native reacted to Kanye West’s recent speech at Oxford University where he told a group of students that he can call Obama “out of the blue” and that “Obama calls the home phone.”
“I’ve met Kanye twice,” Obama said. “The first time was when I was a senator and he was with his mom. He’d just gotten big. He’s from Chicago, so they wanted to meet, and he was very soft-spoken and very gracious. He was a young guy, and hadn’t quite come into his own. And about six months ago, he came to an event and, look, I love his music and he’s incredibly creative. I don’t think I’ve got his home number.”
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
