President Obama appears on Seinfeld’s ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’
HONOLULU — President Barack Obama and comedian Jerry Seinfeld compare cars and trade one-liners in a 19-minute episode of “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.”
The episode began airing Wednesday night, and 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.
While Seinfeld introduces Obama to a 1963 Corvette Stingray, Obama lets Seinfeld ride in the presidential limo, a Cadillac that Obama refers to as “the beast.” Obama says being able to call a nuclear submarine from the car is a cool feature, plus it has seat warmers.
The show debuted on Crackle, a unit of Sony Pictures Television, and can be seen at http://www.crackle.com. It aired as Obama was vacationing in Hawaii.
