If you've ever wondered what it's like to be president of the United States on a day-to-day basis, Jimmy Kimmel has you covered. At least for the things Kimmel is interested in. President Obama disclosed on Thursday night's Kimmel Live that he can go down to the White House kitchen anytime he wants to (but doesn't go down in the middle of the night in his underwear), that the dentist treats him in a dentist office in the basement at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., and that he doesn't have to reset the clocks come daylight saving time.

Also, "I cannot drive," Obama said, quickly adding that the Secret Service won't allow him to. But Kimmel was quicker: "Is it because you don't have a birth certificate?" Obama laughed and played along: "In Kenya, we drive on the other side of the street." Watch below. —Peter Weber
