WATCH: Obama Reads Mean Tweets About Himself on Popular 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' Segment

Wingnut heads are surely exploding watching the President have a lighthearted moment.

President Obama is no stranger to being criticized, and Twitter has no shortage of people complaining about our Commander in Chief. So when President Obama dropped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night – mostly to discuss serious issues like what’s happening in Ferguson – it only made sense that he should take a minute to take part in Kimmel’s popular #Mean Tweets segment.

The always unflappable Obama read through a few angry tweets directed his way, offering clever rejoinders here and there. One read: "Somebody send Obama some lifehacks on how to be a good president. haha. like, i bet that would help. lol."

"You know, the 'lol' is redundant when you have the 'haha,'" Obama paused to helpfully note.

Later, the President admitted, “I have to say, though, those weren’t that mean. You should see what the Senate says about me.”

Touché, Mr. President.
