I’m not even sure this would qualify as just throwing shade. Barack Obama burned Trump so badly during his latest appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show that I’d have to qualify it as a verbal slap in the face.
Taking part in the “mean tweets” segment that Kimmel’s show is famous for, Barack Obama reads off one tweet in particular.
“Barack Obama will will go down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States!…@realdonaldtrump,” said Obama as the crowd laughed. “Well, @realdonaldtrump, at least I will go down as a President.”
The crowd roared as Obama dropped his phone like a mic. The hits kept on coming, though.
“When you watch Donald Trump, do you laugh? Do you actually laugh?” asked Kimmel.
“Most of the time,” shrugged Obama.

Like him or not, that was a pretty solid burn on Obama’s part. Even the phone drop was expert.
