President Obama and Jerry Seinfeld drove a classic 1963 Corvette Stingray around the White House grounds for the comedian's online show.
They chat, they joke, they drive a classic 1963 Corvette. When President Obama appears on Jerry Seinfeld's online show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, their conversation topics range from nothing to the sanity of world leaders and the merits of profanity.
Much of the talk also centers on what it's like for a guy to live in the Oval Office, the White House and a position of extreme power. A recurring theme: how a regular person adjusts to both the privilege and the stress that come with the presidency.
"Bad stuff, or stupid stuff, is happening constantly, right?" Obama says. "Every day. So you have to be able to just make fun of a lot of that, like: 'That was even dumber and more annoying than usual.' That's when cursing is really useful."
When Seinfeld asks Obama, "How many world leaders do you think are just completely out of their mind?" the president answers, "A pretty sizable percent."
The pair were never allowed to leave the White House complex, although Obama did take a turn driving the Stingray — which bore a bumper sticker reading, "My other car is a 5 ton bulletproof limousine." You canwatch the episode here. Alan: Watch this clip 'til the very end, a process that unfortunately makes you endure an obnoxious automobile ad. But take heart! There's even more to come! In addition to Obama's comedic "tag-line," the follow-up episode of "Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee" offers superb repartee between Seinfeld and Stephen Colbert. http://comediansincarsgettingcoffee.com/stephen-colbert-cut-up-and-bloody-but-looking-good
