Check out some highlights of President Obama’s humorous speech, (via PopEater), where he cracks jokes about the decline of his approval ratings, Jay Leno and the Jonas Brothers.
“Obviously, I’m most pleased that Michelle accompanied me. She doesn’t always go to these things. And there are few things in life that are harder to find and more important to keep than love — well, love and a birth certificate.”
“It’s been quite a year… lots of ups, lots of downs. Except for my approval ratings, which have just gone down. But that’s politics, it doesn’t bother me. Besides, I happen to know my approval ratings are still very high in the country of my birth.”
“The Jonas Brothers are here… Sasha and Malia are huge fans. But, boys, don’t get any ideas. I have two words for you — predator drones. You will never see it coming. You think I’m joking.”
Obama couldn’t let Jay, who headlined the festivities, escape his speech unscathed and poked fun at the Tonight Show host saying he is “the only person whose ratings fell more than mine.”
“I’m also glad I’m speaking first, because we’ve all seen what happens when somebody takes the time slot after Leno’s,” he added.
Among the 3,000 guests attending the annual gala were Chevy Chase, Alec Baldwin, Michelle Pfeiffer, Dennis Quaid, the Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Jessica Simpson, Kim Kardashian, Michael Douglas and Steven Spielberg.
