Watch President Obama Read Mean Tweets, FLOTUS Dance to ‘Uptown Funk’

Subscribe to PopCrush on

Taking a break from their jobs as Leaders of the Free World, the Obamas made their way across the talk show circuit this week, with the President reading mean tweets on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and the First Lady dancing to “Uptown Funk” on The Ellen Degeneres Show. (Coolest first family ever.)

While we’ve peed our pants laughing at the countless celebs who have participated in Jimmy Kimmel‘s “Mean Tweets” segment, we couldn’t believe it when President Obama agreed to read such hilariously harsh tweets as, “Obama’s hair is looking grayer these days. Can’t imagine why since he doesn’t seem to be one bit worried about what is going on,” and “30 rack of Coors Light is $23 now at Sun Stop. Thanks, Obama.” Plus, he even gave one user a tip on the redundancy of “lol” after you’ve already used “haha.” Barack Obama = social media wizard. Watch him read mean tweets in the video above!

And as for the First Lady, well, Michelle Obama stopped by Ellen to reveal that she’s launched a campaign called “Gimme Five” in honor of the fifth anniversary of the White House’s traditional Easter Egg Roll.

“We’re asking folks all across the country to #GimmeFive ways their leading a healthy life. We’ve got a lot of celebrities involved,” she explained, noting that even Beyoncé and Nick Jonas have participated. And this year, they’re even breaking out a “Gimme Five” dance at the Easter Egg Roll, which is awesomely set to Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk.” (Maybe because her husband has already covered it)? And since she was on Ellen, Michelle Obama obviously had to challenge the host to an epic dance-off; both ladies learned the “Gimme Five” dance around the same time. Watch them shake it in the video below!
