Funny Obama Hops in the Car, Gets Coffee with Jerry Seinfeld
— The White House (@WhiteHouse) December 31, 2015
President Obama joined Jerry Seinfeld for the latest episode of the comedy megastar's web series, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee."
The 19-minute episode made its debut last night.
It kicks off with Seinfeld phoning the president. He compliments Obama for "cutting all that red tape in Washington" when the president appears to answer the call directly.
The two take a spin in Seinfeld's 1963 Corvette Stingray, and Obama brings Seinfeld aboard the presidential limo, a Cadillac that Obama refers to as "the beast."
Obama says that being able to call a nuclear submarine from the car is a cool feature, plus it has seat warmers.
During the course of the show, Obama relishes the thought of some anonymity and describes Teddy Roosevelt as a guy that might be the most fun to hang out with. He says Roosevelt would take a month-long trip to Yellowstone National Park without anyone knowing where he was.
"Sounds pretty good to me," Obama said.
"That's a lot of messages when you get back," Seinfeld shot back.
