President Obama And Jerry Seinfeld

President Barack Obama appeared on Jerry Seinfeld’s "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" Web series this week (video below).

Seinfeld usually picks up his guests and drives to a coffee shop to chat, but on this episode, he was limited to driving around the White House grounds with Obama in a 1963 Corvette Stingray, notes NPR.

During their drive, the president revealed how he misses his anonymity, but Seinfeld replied, "With all due respect, I remember very well not being famous, it wasn't that great."

When they went for coffee inside the White House cafeteria, Obama recalled his first night sleeping in the famous building: "It's not like a hotel room. So you're looking around, thinking, 'What the hell is this?'"

Seinfeld asked Obama several questions about his day-to-day life, and the president revealed that he wears the same color underwear of the same brand, shaves before working out and picks his own suits in blue, gray and black, reports The New York Times.

Seinfeld asked Obama what sport that politics was most like, and the president said it was like football because it's like being sacked, but sometimes there is a hole and open field.

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

“A pretty sizable percentage,” Obama replied.
