Seinfeld and Obama, driving a Stingray and getting coffee

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."

Some highlight questions:

And Obama's answers:

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."

As he did when he appeared on Zach Galifianakis' show Between Two Ferns last year, Obama briefly broke off from the comedy bits to tout the merits of his health care plan – prompting Seinfeld to turn away from his coffee and urge his viewers, "It's a great thing. Please try Obamacare today."
