Although she was a guest at Saturday’s White House Correspondents Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton in Washington, D.C., that didn’t stop Jimmy Kimmel and President Barack Obama from making Kim Kardashian the subject of some of their jokes. According to US Weekly:
“At the podium, Kimmel, 44, looked back on the 2011 White House bash, which had shortly followed the triumphant capture and death of Osama bin Laden, a victory spearhead by President Obama.
‘If you’re looking for the greatest threat to America right now, she’s right there,’ Kimmel joked, pointing at Kardashian, who sat at the Fox News table with Lindsay Lohah. ‘She’s Kim Kardashian.’
‘When you took office, the Kardashians had one reality show,’ Kimmel noted to the President. ‘Now they have four. This is not a good trend.’ (Indeed, the Kardashian clan just signed a new, reportedly $40 million contract with E! for three more years of reality programming.)
The late night comic also jokingly suggested that Obama order Navy Seals to infiltrate the famous family’s Beverly Hills complex disguised as Denver Nuggets ‘so they can sneak in undetected.’
Kardashian and her mom Kris Jenner were both filmed laughing at the jokes from their seats.
Obama, 50, also included a Kardashian bit in his own routine before Kimmel went onstage. In a pretaped segment, his voice was heard offstage, as if his microphone had been left on accidentally.
‘Seriously, guys, what am I doing here?’ Obama said. ‘I’m the President of the United States, and I’m opening for Jimmy Kimmel? Why am I telling knock-knock jokes to Kim Kardashian? What is she famous for, anyway?’”
