    As his second term winds down, President Barack Obama has done things no president has done before—namely, sit for an interview on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast and appear on Running Wild With Bear Grylls. This week, Obama accomplished another presidential first by guesting on Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

    It was more than a year ago when Obama sat “Between Two Ferns” with Zach Galifianakis to help promote the Obamacare rollout on Funny or Die. Since then, he has hosted a series of live interviews with YouTubers like GloZell Green at the White House.

    As the pair tooled around the White House grounds in a 1963 Split Back Corvette, they chatted about Larry David’s golfing habits, the president’s morning routine, and the mental health of global political leaders.

    “How many world leaders, you think, are just completely out of their mind?” Seinfeld asked.

    “A pretty sizable percentage,” Obama shot back.

    When Seinfeld asked how he blows off steam, Obama said, "I curse. Bad stuff or stupid stuff is happening constantly every day. So you have to be able to just make fun of a lot of that… That’s when cursing is really valuable.”

    Toward the end of their discussion, the president realized he hadn’t mentioned Obamacare yet. “Usually, the only reason I do these things is because I’m promoting health care,” he said, working in a mention in the subtlest way he could manage.

    Shouldn't he be working instead of dicking around on tv? There are chinamen who literally die at their desk working some bullshit job building widgets or something. I'm voting for a chinaman next election. Can't beat that work ethic.

    A question regarding the Seinfeld sitcom has ways bothered me. How the hell did Jerry always have a hot chick?

    Jerry: What's your most embarrassing moment?
    Mr President: This may be it.

    :snicker:

    Very well done. :D

    What I'd like to know is: who's idea was this?

    Did Jerry have the balls to ask the president to be on his TV show? Or is Obama so uninterested in the job that the White House contacted Jerry?

    that is a nice corvette

    they were quite nice cars in those years

    when I was a teen and young man in the 80's/90's they were really very much less interesting


    shave then work out?

    Seinfeld really is Seinfeld isn't he?

    The thing about old classic cars is that they look great but drive like old cars - horribly.

    A nice 1963 corvette, split window, resto-mod is about $120,000. Fun to drive and look at!

    The most powerful man in the free world apparently didn't need a hairdresser at the ready

    The last seven years have been infinitely more embarrassing than this.
