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."

The Dear Leader maObama isn't EVEN funny. Like.. never. I hear Chavez can tell a good joke, though. So I'm kinda confused. Aren't Marxist dictators supposed to be walking punchlines?

Obama is so showbiz that it makes him so suck. I think he's better in Hollywood than in White House. The latest one is his comment on Chicago and lebron. WTF is wrong with this president. Just don't be so showbiz and just run your country. WTF again.

Wait, wait. I have a question for you all - HOW ON EARTH do you get paedophile from a man, an father - telling them to stay away or he'll set 'predator drones' on them? One word - Joke. No intent of calling them sex predators or saying that they were too old. Rude and disrespectful? I have heard way more rude and horrible things said about the jonas brothers. Russell Brand? Now that was offensive.

It's quite easy to tell from what's spewing from the mouths of some of these folks how hateful they are. Obama's jokes are fine. You can't take it, shut the hell up!!!!!!!!!!

All you stupid Obama-followers need to shut up. Yeah, it was a joke, but no, it wasn't an appropriate one.

I don't find that 'joke' on the Jonas Brothers funny at all. I agree with JES. it really is out of line.

Obama needs to seriously get over himself. I think he should apologize, because it was out of line. I am not a fan of the Jonas brothers, but Obama should not make jokes like that about people he doesn't know. I cannot stand that man! He lies constantly and way too arrogant.

He probably didn't know what he was saying half the time he has writers for these things.

The wasn't some serious event he was making light of, so the humor was not out of line. The comment about the Jonas Brothers wasn't a pedo remark either - it was a 'don't date my daughter' thing. Like many people I hope Obama's first term is his last, but we shouldn't be picking our fights over non-points.

I guess when you can't win an argument about policies, you resort to pretending to be offended by everything the President says. Nice try, GOoPers.

Obama had no right to make fun of JB like that. It was rude and dsrespectful of him to say those things about them. I didn' t think it was funny at all.
