Jenna Bush Hager Admits to 'Hanky-Panky' in the White House

Jenna Bush HagerFormer First Daughter Jenna Bush Hager stopped by Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday, December 3, and chatted with host Andy Cohen about her time in the White House, and how she really feels about Barack Obama's teenage daughters Sasha and Malia.


The married mother of one was asked by a caller what she thought of the criticism recently leveled at Sasha and Malia Obama for being "unclassy" with their casual dress and unimpressed attitudes at their dad's presidential pardoning of the turkey for this year's Thanksgiving celebration.

"I'm fiercely protective of them, obviously," she said. "I don't think that it's easy. It's not a job that they wanted."

Aww, I love that despite the many differences their Commander in Chief dads had politically, Jenna feels a sense of loyalty to the current first daughters. She grinned as she continued, "Obviously I had a hard time [when my dad was in the White House] ... but it's also a privilege."

Remember when Jenna and her twin sister Barbara were caught drinking as freshmen in college in 2001? Whoops. Obviously she can relate to the inability to be perfect as a teen, no matter who your dad is.

Another caller asked if she had ever "fooled around" at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and Jenna cheekily replied, "A lady never talks."

Jenna and Barbara didn't live full-time at the White House (they were 19 when George W. Bush became president), but they obviously visited their parents during school breaks and holidays. She met her hubby Henry Hager on the campaign trail in 2004, and let it slip that she maybe "missed [the] opportunity" to get it on in the Lincoln Bedroom, but that doesn't mean nothing happened.

"You know maybe there was a little hanky-panky," she said, talking about her "dream boat" husband. "There was like maybe a kiss on the roof," she admitted. Well, at least that's all she'll admit to.
