Just in time for the end of election season, Comedian in Chief President Obama appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to once again read mean tweets about himself.

Obama's second edition of "Mean Tweets" poked fun at everything from the president's legacy to his fashion sense. Here are some highlights:

"Barack Obama is the Nickelback of presidents."

"Barack Obama dances like how his jeans look."

"Barack Obama... bro, do you even lift!?"

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

With two weeks to go until Election Day, the president was also there to discuss politics, which even came up during the mean tweets. Obama read a tweet from Donald Trump: "President Obama will go down as the worst president in the history of the United States," to which Obama responded, "Well, @realDonaldTrump, at least I will go down as a president."

President Obama also discussed the importance of voting, explained why he thinks the American people should trust Hillary Clinton, and reflected on our country's tradition of term limits.

In addition to politics, Obama talked about his family, telling a story about his daughters teaching him about how Snapchat works. He doesn't have the app, he joked, because his phone has the capabilities of a fake phone for a toddler, but when he learned about it he started musing about "the implications of social media." This caused Sasha to take a picture of herself looking bored, the president said, and send it to her friends.

And in case you're wondering, yes, the president is happy the Chicago Cubs are in the World Series, despite being a White Sox fan.
