President Barack Obama was Seinfeld’s first guest on the seventh season of his online talk show, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” on Wednesday. The show features the New York comedian picking up fellow comics in classic cars and taking them out for coffee and conversation.

    Jerry Seinfeld's web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” kicked off its seventh season Wednesday night with special guest star President Barack Obama.

    Although Obama isn’t a comedian, Seinfeld justified the president’s appearance on the show, saying he "has gotten off enough funny lines to be qualified for this show."

    Arriving in a classic 1963 Corvette Stingray Split Window Coupe, Seinfeld walked up to the Oval Office to greet the Commander in Chief, before trying to drive off the grounds.

    Unfortunately, security stopped the pair from leaving the premises.

    The two opted, instead, for a little joy ride at the White House.

    "I do really well with the 0-8 demographic. They love me. Probably because my ears are big," Obama said, adding that young kids seem to like him because he resembles a cartoon character.

    They then decided to check out one of the presidential vehicles. That’s when Obama shared the one thing he wishes he could do.

    "I would love to just be taking a walk and then I run into you. You're sitting on a bench. And suddenly I say, 'Hey Jerry, how ya doin?'" he confessed. "That moment when you lost your anonymity. And anonymity is not something you think about as being valuable."

    As the comedian prepared of a fresh pot of coffee, the president opened up about how scary it was to spend the first night in the White House. 

    "So you're looking around and thinking, what the hell is this?" he said of the historic monument.

    Obama also talked about his obsession with nachos, cursing, and, of course, Obamacare.

    Before the duo parted ways, Obama got behind the wheel of the Stingray, which was a childhood dream. The pair made another attempt to pass the gate, but security wasn't having it.

    "I knew that wouldn't work," Obama said.

    "You didn't sell it,” Seinfeld responded.
