Time and time again, President Obama has shown that he's got a great sense of humor. Whether appearing in a BuzzFeed video (opens in new tab)spoofing himself (opens in new tab), or making jokes while giving official speeches ("I have no more campaigns to run, I know, because I won both of them"'), the Commander in Chief isn't above making people laugh.

So it's really no surprise that he was completely on board for his own version of "Mean Tweets," that beloved segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live where celebrities read mean tweets about themselves.

Maybe our favorite moment?

  • The tweet: "Somebody send Obama some lifehacks on how to be a good president. haha. like I bet that would help. lol," the tweet read.
  • Obama's response: "You know, the 'lol' is redundant when you have that 'haha.'"
