It would have been a cop-out if Obama had appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and not gone through the humbling experience of reading out mean tweets like the other guests.

It seems he was only too happy to oblige though, and took part in the segment with gusto, reading tweets criticising his hair, his inefficacy as a president, his economic policies and even his jeans.

Sure, they were a little cleaner and less cutting than usual, but the President still took the criticisms like a good sport.

"Is there any way we could fly Obama to some golf course halfway around the world and just leave him there?" @RWSurferGirl wrote, who was delighted that her tweet made the cut:

"I knew I'd get my 15 minutes of fame someday #ThanksObama" another mean tweeter said.

Previous celebrities to have featured in the segment include Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Lena Dunham, Julia Roberts and Lil Wayne.

Obama seems to kicking back for the tail end of his presidency, also taking selfies for BuzzFeed and home-brewing beer.
