President Barack Obama recently found himself at the peril of his youngest daughter Sasha's Snapchat account.

Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the president found his daughter secretly filming him on the photo-sharing app at dinner and sending the footage to her friends.

"I had read that Snapchat was becoming really popular among her age cohort", he said. "She starts explaining stuff ... At the end of it, I started talking to Michelle [Obama] about the implications of social media and what all this means".

"[I] come to find out she was recording us the whole time and then sent to her friends afterwards: 'This is my dad lecturing us on the meaning of social media'."

She followed up the video with a photo of herself "looking bored".

"Michelle of course loved it. Malia [Obama] thought it was a riot," he said.

Kimmel took the opportunity to poke fun during the story by alluding to Hilary Clinton's email leaks, saying, "as if you don't have enough security problems in the White House right now".

Obama also took a pop at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in the popular segment, 'Mean Tweets'.
