Update: The Coffee Date About Nothing

President Barack Obama and Jerry Seinfeld got jokes.

Published January 2, 2016

UPDATE: The full episode has dropped, and even though the POTUS had "stuff to do," he and Jerry Seinfeld kicked it for the day riding around in an American made 1963 Corvette. See the two debate anonymity and fame, chat about what Teddy Roosevelt did that Obama wishes he could do, and whwther or not the president gets to walk around the White House in his underwear, below.



Jerry Seinfeld has hosted some of the biggest names in comedy on his popular web series Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, but none of them can compare to President Barack Obama riding shotgun.

POTUS will be a guest on the long-running show later this month, sitting in the passenger side of a silver-blue 1963 Corvette Stingray Split Window Coupe as they take a spin around the White House driveway (you didn't think the Secret Service would let them off the premises, did you?). After the joyride, Seinfeld and Obama reconvene in the staff dining room for coffee and a chat.

“Being President and just a cool guy to hang out with at the same time made the experience my own personal moonwalk," gushed Seinfeld. "It was an unforgettable day.”
