When Jimmy Kimmel called President Obama “the most intentionally funny president” of his lifetime, he wasn’t lying. There have been many instances when the President had people gasping for air and holding on to their sides. Not a lot of people might know that President Obama is the 1st sitting President who has made appearances on late night talk shows. He has appeared in “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, and also on talk shows hosted by David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon. Even Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have had the honor of having the President on their shows. Finally, Jimmy Kimmel joined that list.
The President was scheduled to appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last year but had to cancel that visit because there were a lot of international problems happening in that time and it seemed inappropriate for the President of the US to appear on a comedy show. This time, however, fans were treated to Obama at his funniest.
President Obama read many mean tweets about himself from Twitter users and said that the Senate was still meaner than these tweets. Christian Broda recalls that Obama’s quick wit was there for all to witness when he had funny responses to almost every tweet read by him. In a show hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, it seemed like Kimmel was trying to keep up with the President.
He also addressed various issues and rumors about his Presidency in his appearance, taking time to talk about problems in Ferguson as well.
