Getting into the White House is a joke — just ask Jerry Seinfeld who pulled into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in his '63 Corvette Stingray and launched into a rapid-fire quip-fest with President Barack Obama.

The commander-in-chief — appearing on Seinfeld's Crackle series "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” — is seen at his desk as Seinfeld slouches on a couch, munching on an apple he grabs from a fruit bowl.

"Are these washed?" asks Seinfeld, who's told to use the "non-presidential" garbage can to dispose of the core.

The eye-rolling repartee continues as the duo walk through the White House discussing Obama's daily workout routine and how he shaves first, then exercises.

"Shave, then work out?'' Seinfeld asks incredulously.

"That's how I do it," Obama fires back. "I don't really need a reason, that's just how I do it."

"If I slid open your underwear drawer, one brand one color?" Seinfeld asks.

"Yeah, of course," the president says.

Obama talks about the enormous amount of people he has to meet day in and day out.

"Do you ever think every person you talk to is putting on an act, a total show?" Seinfeld asks.

"It's a problem," Obama deadpans.

Asked about how children react to him, Obama quips: "I do really well with the 0-8 demographic, they love me. Partly because I think my ears are big and I look a little like a cartoon character."

Obama says the president who might be "the most fun to hang out with" is Teddy Roosevelt, who sometimes disappeared for weeks at a time to hike through Yellowstone Park.

"Can you imagine that?" Obama asks.

Seinfeld returns to Obama's underwear, asking how far the president can stroll through the halls in his boxers before being noticed by staffers.

"It's not cool generally, wandering around in my underwear," the president explains.

Obama says that after he was elected, it took him a week or so to get used to waking up in the White House.

"It's not like a hotel room. So you're looking around [going] what the hell is this?" he explains.

Seinfeld asks the president if he believes some world leaders are "completely out of their minds."

"A pretty sizable percent," Obama says. "I think the longer they stay in office, the more likely that is to happen. At a certain point your feet hurt, you're having trouble peeing, you have absolute power."

Seinfeld lets the president take a spin in his classic Corvette. Then Obama shows Seinfeld his presidential wheels.

As the two sit in the back seat, Obama boasts about the car's extras: "I could call a nuclear submarine right from here. You don't have that do you? It's a cool feature. Plus it has seat warmers."

Obama's appearance on the popular show is a departure for Seinfeld, who usually sticks to chatting with comedians like Louis C.K., Amy Schumer and Stephen Colbert.

Obama says he agreed to do the show to make a pitch for his signature healthcare law, the Affordable Care Act. But aside from a brief mention of Obamacare, the show is wall-to-wall jokes.
