President Obama’s ‘Comedians in Cars’ Visit Has Little Driving, Lots of Coffee

The season premiere of Jerry Seinfeld’s Crackle series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” only really met the third part of its alliterative title, thanks to a humorless security officer refusing to let the comic drive off with his special guest — the Commander in Chief.

Instead, Seinfeld and President Barack Obama checked out each other’s rides and settled for coffee in an on-premise lunch room at the White House. There, they talked about the price of fame (Obama is whimsical about his days in anonymity; Seinfeld swears life is better when you’re famous), Obama’s wardrobe options, morning routines and his love of nachos.

“I always wanted to be on a show about nothing, and here I am,” Obama tells Seinfeld.

As with his other pop culture appearances, Obama did manage to get in a (somewhat) serious plug for one of his passions. This time, it was ObamaCare.

“If you don’t want to sully your show with the interest of getting people with no health care signing up so that, heaven forbid, something happens to them …” he says.

“… Please try ObamaCare today,” Seinfeld finishes for him.

Other guests on the new season of “Comedians in Cars” include Will Ferrell, Steve Martin, Garry Shandling, Kathleen Madigan and Sebastian Maniscalco.
