On Sunday, the New York Times published a story that included a remarkable detail: Donald Trump's aides had "finally wrested away" his Twitter account.

A major contender for President of the United States had his internet privileges revoked by his staff like a grounded teenager.

Nor was this irony lost on the actual president, who used it to mercilessly mock Trump at a campaign rally on Sunday in Florida.

"This was just announced, I just read it so I can't confirm it's true but apparently his campaign has taken away his Twitter," said Obama to scandalized disbelief from the crowd.

"In the last two days, they had so little confidence in his self control, they said we're just gonna take away your Twitter. Now, if somebody can't handle a Twitter account," said the president to more laughter, "they can't handle the nuclear codes."

"If someone starts tweeting at three in the morning 'cause SNL made fun of you, then you can't handle the nuclear codes."

Watch for Obama's thumbs moving across an imaginary phone in the clip above. This campaign has unearthed a whole lot of comedy chops from everyone.
