The big event last night in Washington was the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, and the stars were President Obama and Jay Leno:
Washington (CNN) — President Obama’s punch lines targeted a diverse group Saturday — from teen sensations the Jonas Brothers to comedian Jay Leno, whom he described as the only person with worse ratings than his.
“Jonas Brothers are here tonight,” the president said at the annual White House Correspondents’ dinner. Daughters “Sasha and Malia are huge fans. But boys, don’t get any ideas. Two words: predator drones.”
Obama said he was happy to address the crowd before Leno, who headlined the annual event.
“Glad to see the only person whose ratings fell more than mine last year. … I’m also glad that I’m speaking first,” he said.
“We’ve seen what happens when someone takes the time slot after Leno,” the president added, referring to comedian Conan O’Brien leaving NBC after an unsuccessful stint hosting “The Tonight Show.
