President Obama: Trump Is Different From 'Honorable Men' McCain And Romney

POTUS is quite happy to support Hillary, knowing that she's infinitely more qualified to run for such a demanding job.

In addition to reading Mean Tweets, on Monday night's show, Barack Obama responded to an interesting question: does the President wish that he could have had Donald Trump as his opponent?

The POTUS sidestepped that question by saying how much he is enjoying campaigning on behalf of Hillary Clinton. Then he pointed out that Trump is a very different candidate than we have seen before.

I ran against Mitt Romney, I ran against John McCain, I have strong differences with both of them. But they are honorable men.

There is something qualitatively different about the way Trump has operated in the political sphere...But what we haven't seen before, I think, is somebody questioning the integrity of elections and the will of the people.

Obama then turned to the subject of what is expected from a President:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Regardless of what your political and your policy preferences are, there is a certain responsibility and expectation in terms of how you behave, how you present yourself. It doesn't mean that--

JIMMY KIMMEL: I've heard this speech before

POTUS: It doesn't mean that you're perfect

KIMMEL: No, I didn't mean from you, I meant guidance counselors, to me.

Obama is 100% certain that his wife would divorce him were he to run for a third term, provided the Constitution didn't outlaw that from happening. For more candid commentary about his family and Michelle, check out this clip:
