President Barack Obama Reads Mean Tweets On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'; Talks Selma And Ferguson (VIDEO)

President Barack Obama stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to give his take on the social and racial injustices that have been plaguing the black community. During his sit down, he spoke about the march on Selma that he participated in and gave his take on the recent Ferguson shooting that left two officer wounded Wednesday night (Mar. 11).

“What was beautiful about Selma was reminding ourselves that real social change in this country so often has happened because ordinary people are willing in a non-violent fashion to make their voices heard,” Obama said. “What had been happening in Ferguson was oppressive and objectionable and was worthy of protest, but there was no excuse for criminal acts. Whoever fired those shots shouldn’t detract from the issue. They’re criminals, they should be arrested and then what we need to do is make sure that like-minded, good spirited people on both sides, law enforcement who have a terrifically tough job, and people who understandably don’t want to be stopped and harassed just because of their race that we’re able to work together to try to come up with some good answers.”

The Commander-in-Chief also took to the reckless Twitter feeds and read some less than nice posts about himself.

“Obama’s hair is looking grayer these days. Can’t imagine why since he doesn’t seem to be one bit worried about all that’s going on,” one of the tweets read.

Take a look at his appearance below.
