President Barack Obama has revealed that world leaders are mostly all “out of their minds” in an interview with comedian Jerry Seinfeld.
During the seventh season of Jerry Seinfeld’s online show ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’, the President took the comedian on a tour of the White House, talking candidly about his role as Commander-in-Chief.
Seinfeld asked Obama the question, “how many world leaders do you think are just completely out of their mind?”.
Surprisingly Obama answered bluntly, “A pretty sizable percentage“.
“Part of what happens is these guys, I think the longer they stay in office, the more likely that is to happen,” he continued.
“They lose it,” Seinfeld interjected.
“At a certain point your feet hurt, and you’re having trouble peeing, and you have absolute power…,” Obama lamented.
Another noteworthy tidbit the president revealed is that he blows off steam by swearing.
“Bad stuff or stupid stuff is happening constantly, right? Every day. So you just have to be able to just make fun of — wow, that was even dumber and more annoying than usual. That’s when cursing is really valuable,” the president told the comedian.
The episode concludes with Obama commenting on being able to drive a 1963 Corvette, stating: “This is a childhood dream.”
