Obama To Seinfeld: ‘Sizable Percentage’ Of World Leaders Are Crazy (VIDEO)


As the pair tooled around the White House grounds in a 1963 Split Back Corvette, they chatted about Larry David’s golfing habits, the president’s morning routine, and the mental health of global political leaders.

“How many world leaders, you think, are just completely out of their mind?” Seinfeld asked.

“A pretty sizable percentage,” Obama shot back.

“Some of these people, you must meet them, you’ll just be chatting and you look in the eyes and go, ‘Oh, this guy’s gone,'” Seinfeld said.

“Part of what happens is, these guys, I think the longer they stay in office, the more likely that is to happen,” the president explained.

Seinfeld said that he was justified in labeling Obama a comedian because of the sharp barbs the president is known for lobbing at normally staid events like the White House Correspondents Dinner.
