Obama told the late-night host, "You should see what the Senate says about me."

The president also joked about the perks and restrictions he faces, noting that he can visit the dentist in the White House basement but doesn't text and can't drive.

Kimmel asked if that was because you have to have a birth certificate to get a driver's license.

Obama deadpanned that Kenyans "drive on the other side" of the road.

The president also somberly reflected on Wednesday night's shooting of two police officers in Ferguson, Missouri. He said that while Ferguson's record of racial harassment was "oppressive and objectionable," there was "no excuse for criminal acts."

Obama left Los Angeles Friday just after 10 a.m. bound for Phoenix.
