President Obama Plays Mean Tweets and Personal Questions For Laughs On Jimmy Kimmel
The introduction set the tone for President Obama's appearance with Jimmy Kimmel last night, right from the moment he sat down.
Kimmel said, "Our first guest tonight made history by becoming the first Kenyan-born, Muslim, socialist president, and he flew here tonight on a really awesome plane. Please welcome the President of the United States, number 44, Barack Obama!"
When the president took a seat, he said, "How come you're so much higher than me? It's like a power play!"
Kimmel replied, "If they legalize marijuana in Washington D.C., you can be higher than me!"
The president played it for laughs as he read some nasty tweets about himself such as:
"Is there any way we could fly Obama to some golf course halfway around the world and just leave him there?"
"I think that's a great idea," said Obama.
Another tweet said, "How do you make Obama's eyes light up? Shine a flashlight in his ears."
Ryan Pozniak, a junior from Chicago attending Arizona State University tweeted, "A 30 rack of coors light is now $23 now a Sun Stop. Thanks, Obama."
Pozniak told INSIDE EDITION, "I thought it was really cool that he read it. I didn't mean that it was actually his fault that the price of Coors Light went up."
Obama said, "I have to say, those weren't that mean. You should see what the Senate says about me!"
Kimmel bombarded the president with a string of personal questions, and the president answered them all.
"Could you run down to the kitchen in the middle of the night in your underpants if you're hungry?" asked Kimmel.
"I could. I don't," said Obama.
"Do you drive?" asked Kimmel.
Obama answered, "I cannot drive. I mean, I'm able to drive."
"Does that mean you don't have a birth certificate?" joked Kimmel.
"In Kenya, we drive on the other side of the road," said Obama.
Kimmel asked, "Do you have Hillary Clinton's new email address?"
"I can't share it with you. I don't think she'd want you to have it," replied Obama.
As for Pozniak, the price of beer may not be a burning issue, but he thinks it's pretty cool his tweet about the big fella got a big laugh.
Pozniak said, "Someone tweeted at me and said, 'Your tweet just got read by Obama on Jimmy Kimmel' and I was like, what the heck? I watched the YouTube link and I was like, that's crazy!"
