Obama trolls Trump over 'mean tweet' on late night TV

Obama is interviewed on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show in Los AngelesBy Roberta Rampton LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – President Barack Obama on Monday trolled Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump – known for his prolific use of Twitter to settle scores – making Trump the punch line for jokes on ABC’s late-night show “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Obama read aloud a series of “mean tweets” culminating in one from Trump: “President Obama will do down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States!” “At least I will go down as a president,” Obama said. Kimmel joked that Obama had to “take time away from helping rig the election” to appear on the show, a dig at Trump, who has repeatedly said the Nov. 8 vote is rigged against him.
