I was just scrolling through YouTube and clicked onto the "Trending" page to see what videos via YouTube are currently trending; views, likes, comments, etc. One caught my eye, thinking it would be very funny and indeed it was pretty humorous! It was on the Live with Jimmy Kimmel YouTube page with the title "Mean Tweets- President Obama Edition #2". Found Here

This video was funny as Obama wasn't taking any "reaction" or hate to this that much and was actually taking it very well! So I found out Obama has a pretty good sense of humor at that! These tweets he read out with whom tweeted about Obama, and then with what the tweet said.

Some of these Tweets were funny, and weren't much hate on Obama, such as one person said they bought conditioner and it wasn't conditioning their hair, and blamed Obama for it. Then another, which ended the video was actually from TRUMP himself! Trump tweeted about/to Obama saying that President Obama will go down as the worst president in the history of the US. Obama had a response saying "At least I'll go down as a president" implying Trump wont win the election of 2016.

I thought this video was pretty funny. I've seen other videos in general with people reading out their hate tweets or comments and it is so entertaining and funny!

Hi Cierra I actually came across this video on twitter. It was shown as the most popular video and I decided to watch it because it had to do with Obama more than anything. When I saw the tweet that Donald trump told Obama I was disgusted but then Obama decided to reply on national television. I was dying of laughter because of his reply because he burned trump with his reply. I LOVE OBAMA, and I find it hilarious how trump thinks that he can get to Obama but he really can't.

Hi Cierra,

I like how you chose something that related politics to social media. I think that Obama definitely appeals to a younger American generation through participating in things like this video. It's admirable, in a way, that our president is working to involve a younger generation by reaching them through youtube, twitter, and jimmy Kimmel of course. I also think that it does a great job of showing younger people about how prevalent hateful speech is online, even to someone like our president. I really enjoy these videos in general and President Obama did not disappoint.

Erin
