video: Barack Obama hits back at Donald Trump on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel live
Barack Obama said, ‘I don’t tweet at 3 a.m. about people who insult me,” at the ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel show to ridicule Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Barack Obama who received most of Trump tweets also read out some the most popular tweets on him.
He read one of the Trump tweet, “President Obama will go down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States!” and then exclaimed, “At least I will go down as a president,” as the audience cheered him up and went into laughter.
Here is a video of President Obama talking at the show:
Obama also read out some of the other Trump tweets like “Obama is the worst President US ever seen,” “Obama is much-over hyped”, “My daughter shares a birthday with Obama” and most atrocious allegation from Trump that “Obama cannot negotiate any deal properly.”
Obama made Trump the target of his punch line for jokes on the show, during his three-day visit to Nevada and California as part of his campaign for Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton.
Obama voiced strongly for Hillary’s win saying she “been in the trenches for 30 years,” while the host Kimmel said, it is time for him to “take time away from helping rig the election” to appear on his show, hinting at Trump’s accusation that US election 2016 is going to be rigged.
Obama responded to the joke saying how actor-comedian Bill Murray used to beat him in a game to put golf balls into a glass in the Oval Office as part of an effort for Obamacare.
“He won repeatedly,” said the President, adding “The glass was rigged!”
When Kimmel posed a question to Obama, “Do you ever laugh” while watching the Republican candidate on TV, Obama replied “Most of the time”.But he added that unlike Trump, “I don’t tweet at 3 a.m. about people who insult me,”
