Before long, Barack Obama will have to give up the @POTUS Twitter handle.

Ahead of Election Day on Nov. 8, the current commander-in-chief stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday, where he participated in a second reading of mean tweets. Barack laughed at some and scoffed at others, and in the end, he even replied to one of Donald Trump's tweets.

Here's what people said about Obama on Twitter:

• @nathan: "Barack Obama is the Nickelback of presidents."

• @woodstockdave: "Obama couldn't negotiate getting a Whopper without pickles."

• @duckpunks: "I bet Obama likes mustard on his hotdogs because hes gross."

• @momof4munchkins: "Just found out my daughter shares a birthday with Obama PUKE."

• @Maaaaartz: "Barack Obama dances like how his jeans look."

• @heatherfarley98: "My mom bought new conditioner and it sucks it isn't even conditioning my hair I blame Obama."

• @DJ_IcpI: "Barack Obama...bro, do you even lift!?"

• @James141980: "Barack Obama is the sharknado of presidents. Loud, stupid and over-hyped! #sharknado4."

• @realDonaldTrump: "President Obama will go down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States!"

"Well, @realDonaldTrump," Obama said, "at least I will go down as a president."

When Jimmy Kimmel interviewed Barack, he wondered what he thinks of Donald's debate style. "Do you ever actually laugh?" he asked. Nodding, Barack responded, "Most of the time."

Unlike Donald, who's known for tweeting at odd hours, Barack said he doesn't tweet about "people who've insulted me. I try to sleep so that in the morning I'm actually ready for crises."

Of course, Barack also praised Hillary Clinton, Donald's rival. "Having worked with her, she is smart as a whip, she works really hard, she cares deeply about working families in this country, and she's not somebody who thinks the job is about flash and sizzle and making speeches. It's about getting policy right and making sure that folks are doing a little bit better. I think in a time when everybody wants to get 100 percent of what they want right now, and if someone doesn't agree, they're completely wrong, the brand of politics that Hillary represents—pragmatic, you don't get everything all at once, you make progress in little pieces—that may not attract as much attention," he told the late-night host. "It's not something that goes into 140 characters."

As for whether he would've liked to serve a third term in the White House, Barack joked that Michelle Obama would "divorce" him if he did. It's a good ting he doesn't "have that choice to make," he added. Plus, he said, Hillary is "doing just fine" right now. "I am enjoying campaigning on her behalf, and also for Senate and House candidates. We joke about Trump, but I do think part of reason you've seen Michelle passionate in this election—part of the reason we get involved—is not just because Hillary's going to be a great president, but it's also because there's something different about the way Trump has operated in the political sphere. I ran against [John] McCain, against [Mitt] Romney. I thought I could do a better job, but they're both honorable men. And if they won, I wouldn't worry about generally the course of the country."

"But what we haven't seen before is somebody questioning integrity of elections and the will of the people, a politics based on putting down in very explicit terms, Muslim Americans who are patriots, or describing women on a 1 to 10 score," he said. "Regardless of what your political preferences are, there is a certain responsibility and expectation in terms of how you behave."
