After Obama's "60 Minutes" interview, some tweeters share their thoughts about how it might affect Trump's political aspirations.

President Obama appeared on CBS' 60 Minutes on Sunday night to talk about the killing of Osama bin Laden last week by U.S. forces, just minutes before Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice aired on NBC.

The interview comes just a week after Obama's announcement that bin Laden had been killed in Pakistan pre-empted Celebrity Apprentice. The interruption was noteworthy because Trump has been very outspoken in his criticism of the president, who had roasted the real estate mogul the previous night at the White House Correspondents Association dinner.

And on Sunday, Twitter users couldn't resist hitting the social media site to weigh in on how Obama did in the interview and how it affects Trump's presidential aspirations.

NeNe Leakes, a competitor on this season's Celebrity Apprentice who also stars on Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta, tweeted: "Mr Trump, Barack Obama is kicking yo ass! Now what?"

(SPOILER ALERT: Leakes apparently quit Celebrity Apprentice in Sunday night's episode.)

Obama had plenty of other supporters, with many tweeting his some version of his quote from the 60 Minutes interview: "This was still a 55/45 situation."

Among his other supporters:

Jordan Bitterman: "Again: proud this guy is our President."

Stantastic: "Obama is more like the definition of what a black man can accomplish."

H.Lynne: "Great interview on 60 Minutes with President Obama..."

John Byrne: "Oh my word. How great is the Obama/Real American thing? Flawless. What a guy.

Brandon Graves: "I feel sorry for the person running against Obama next year."

Hungoree: "Who would watch Donald Trump or support him in any way after what he has done to President Obama."

Lakendra Fort: "Nene Leakes will not be the reason Trump's show drops ratings. But him wanting to see Obama's birth certificate will."

But there were others who either support Trump -- or simply don't support Obama:

Tara Broadway: "TRUMP 2012!!!!!!! Dont hate the man that will win.. Obama BLOWS..."

Loren Heal: "Obama deserves no credit for anything. He who grabs at acclaim doesn't deserve it."

☭O☭..OOpsie!!!!!!!!!: "Is Obama Fiscally challenged, impaired, or retarded? #tcot #teaparty #gop #sgp #ocra"
