WATCH: Obama reads mean tweets on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Los Angeles — President Barack Obama read "Mean Tweets" on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night, but he was unfazed.

After enduring the routine — in which celebrities read hostile Twitter comments about themselves — Obama told Kimmel, "You should see what the Senate says about me."

The president also joked about the perks and restrictions he faces, revealing that he's not allowed to use cellphones that have recorders in them. (Hence his ever-present BlackBerry.) He also noted that he can visit the dentist in the White House basement but doesn't text and can't drive.

Kimmel asked if that was because you have to have a birth certificate to get a driver's license.

Obama — whom Kimmel introduced as the "first Kenyan-born Muslim Socialist ever elected president" — deadpanned that Kenyans "drive on the other side" of the road.
