Shots fired. Barack Obama hit back at Michael Jordan today after the NBA legend said that the President was a bad golfer.
Jordan picked a fight with the president earlier this week when he made fun of Obama’s golf game. First, Jordan said that Obama would not be on his “dream foursome” and then flat out called the president a bad golfer.
Jordan said: “I never played with Obama, but I would. But nah, that’s OK. I’d take him out [of my dream foursome]. He’s a hack. Man, it would be all day playing with him … I never said he wasn’t a great politician, I’m just saying he’s a sh—y golfer.”
President Obama responded to Jordan today but he didn’t defend his golf game. Instead, Obama took a shot at MJ saying that the basketball star should spend more time focusing on his team the Charlotte Hornets and less time worrying about golf.
Obama said: “There is no doubt that Michael is a better golfer than I am. Of course if I was playing twice a day for the last 15 years, then that might not be the case. He might want to spend more time thinking about the Bobcats, or the Hornets.”
