President Barack Obama revealed on Wednesday that a “pretty sizeable percentage” of world leaders are “out of their minds”.

The politician made the admission to Jerry Seinfeld during an episode of 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee'.

Chatting in the White House cafe, Seinfeld asked Obama: “How many world leaders do you think are just completely out of their mind?”

“A pretty sizeable percentage,” the commander-in-chief responded.

Barack Obama has admitted that a "sizable percentage' of world leaders are 'out of their minds'.

At the start of the 18-minute clip, Seinfeld arrives at the White House, greeting the President through his window.

Obama got into the spirit of the film, saying: “I always wanted to be in a show about nothing and here I am."

On insane world leaders, Seinfeld quipped: “Some of these people, you must meet them, you must be chatting and you see it in their eyes… you go ‘oh, this guys gone’.”

Without naming names, the 54-year-old president revealed: “Part of what happens with these guys, is the longer they stay in office, the more likely that is to happen.”

“Of course, they lose it,” interjected the comedian.

Obama continued: “At a certain point your feet hurt and you’re having trouble peeing, [but] you have absolute power.”

“Privilege is toxic”, Seinfeld said.

“It really is,” said Obama.
