The President said on his speech that he got his eyes on the brothers should they want to date his tween daughters, Malia and Sasha.
Jonas Brothers did not take President Obama's joke on them during White House Correspondents' Association dinner as something to laugh about. According to Washington Examiner's Yeas & Nays, the brothers thought it was a jab rather than a celebration about their popularity.
Nick Jonas, Joe Jonas, Demi Lovato, Kevin Jonas and his wife Danielle Deleasa attended the gala held on Saturday, May 1 night. Obama made jokes to several of his guests during the speech, specifically addressing the brothers not to date his daughters. "The Jonas Brothers are here ...Sasha and Malia are huge fans," the president started. "But, boys, don't get any ideas, I have two words for you - predator drones."
Later in the after-party hosted by Bloomberg and Vanity Fair, Joe said, "We're not that old" and Nick chimed in, "Seriously, we're not pedophiles." Meanwhile, Demi could not care less about politics, having no clue of who John Edwards is and reportedly saying "What's politics?"
Obama also made a joke about Jay Leno who infamously snatched back his show after giving it to Conan O'Brien. "I am glad that the only person whose ratings fell more than mine last year is here tonight - great to see you, Jay," Obama said. "I'm also glad that I'm speaking first, because we've all seen what happens when somebody takes the time slot after Leno's."
Before that he slipped in a joke about "Jersey Shore" phenomenon, saying "The following individuals shall be excluded from the indoor tanning tax within this bill: Snooki, J-Woww, The Situation, and House minority leader John Boehner."
