Between fundraisers in California, President Obama stopped by Hollywood Boulevard on Monday to tape an episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” where he touched on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, talked about having a cellphone in the White House and responded to some mean tweets.
The show is filmed at the El Capitan Entertainment Center – right across the street from Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
As is to be expected two weeks out from the election, Trump’s name came up repeatedly. Obama is in Los Angeles for a $100,000-per-person roundtable for the Hillary Victory Fund. Some of the money will go to the Democratic National Committee and state-level campaigns. (The event was closed to the news media.)
Obama responded to one tweet calling him the “Nickelback of presidents,” and another saying he couldn’t negotiate ordering a Whopper without pickles, before an Aug. 2 tweet from Trump popped up.
“At least I will go down as a president,” Obama said, giving the camera a deadpan look.
A few other highlights:
Kimmel asked whether the White House staff ever woke Obama in the middle of the night because of an emergency.
Obama said it had happened three or four times.
“For the most part they let me sleep. Usually, the real serious problems that come up are ones that we’ve anticipated, we kind of see coming,” Obama said. “What I don’t do is at 3 a.m. I don’t tweet about people who insulted me. I try to sleep so that in the morning I’m actually ready for a crisis.”
Kimmel asked whether Obama had already voted. He had, in Chicago, though he wouldn’t say who he voted for.
“It’s a secret ballot and that’s the way it should be,” Obama said.
Kimmel asked whether Obama was glad there were term limits and he couldn’t serve another term.
“If I were able to run for a third term, Michelle would divorce me, so it’s useful that I don’t have that choice to make,” Obama said.
Kimmel asked whether the first lady could stay around for another four years.
“Michelle was never wild about politics,” Obama said. “She is not sorry. All the women in my life are looking forward to being able to live a more normal life.”
Obama said he was very careful about what he said in emails and that his phone didn’t have the ability to text, make calls or take pictures.
He does have access to the Internet, though, and can send emails and check the weather.
“I now have an iPhone, but it is like the phone you give your 2-year-old where they can pretend to press things but nothing actually happens,” he said.
Obama said he may joke about Trump, but he also took him seriously.
“There is something qualitatively different about the way Trump has operated in the political sphere,” Obama said.
When he was running for president in 2008 and 2012, Obama added, he thought he would do a better job than his Republican opponents, Sen. John McCain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, but “if they had won then I wouldn’t have worried about the general course of the country.”
“Sometimes it’s going to be contentious and noisy, but what we haven’t seen before, I think, is somebody questioning the integrity of elections and the will of the people,” he said.
Obama said he had been protective of the norms, standards and customs expected of a U.S. president.
“There is a certain responsibility and expectation in terms of how you behave, how you present yourself,” he said. “If you are willing to say anything and do anything, even when it undermines everything that has been built by previous generations, that’s a problem, and that’s why I take this election very seriously.”
