Here’s one less thing the Secret Service will need to worry about when Chelsea Clinton gets married this weekend.

“I was not invited to the wedding,” President Barack Obama said on ABC’s The View, airing Thursday, “because I think Hillary and Bill, properly, want to keep this thing for Chelsea and her soon-to-be husband.”

And that’ll work out well for everybody at Saturday’s ceremony, he joked, MSNBC reports.

“You don’t want two presidents at one wedding!” Obama said. “All the secret service, guests going through [metal detectors], all the gifts being torn apart.”
