Obama Films White House Coffee Run With Jerry Seinfeld

Obama coffee

President Obama will join Jerry Seinfeld in an episode of his online streaming show “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” in his latest experiment in new media ventures.

The taped episode features Obama and Seinfeld circling the White House driveway in a 1963 Corvette Stingray while they talk about life in the White House, according to a preview of the show provided to CNN.

Obama also gets to drive the car, according to the report, a restriction set by the Secret Service that he frequently gripes about.

“The President’s humor and generosity are the only reasons this was even possible,” Seinfeld said in the release, describing Obama as “so easy and fun to be with.”

“This was an opportunity to pull back the curtain for Americans on life in the White House,” the White House said in a statement released to reporters. “The president and Jerry had a unique, candid conversation that focused largely on the lighter side of the presidency.”

The episode with Obama is scheduled to air Wednesday while the president is on vacation.
