In a recent interview with a Wisconsin radio station WJMR, Michael Jordan described Barack Obama’s golf game as “shitty.” President Obama laughed off the statement, “Mike and I, we know each other but I’ve never played golf with him,”
He noted that Jordan made the comment in an interview with Ahmad Rashad, whom the president said he had partnered with before on the golf course. Obama said he and Rashad twice beat former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning, The Hill reports.
“Michael wasn’t very well informed about this, I think he might’ve just been trying to give Ahmad an extra ratings boost on his show,” Obama continued.
“But 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.”
I wont get into politics here, but does that apply to one’s ability to be “good” at being president – How much time they play golf? Because as of November, 2014, Mr. President, you have played 192 rounds of golf... Ill let you all, my brilliant readers, make the connection there.
“He might want to spend more time thinking about the Bobcats — or the Hornets,” Obama replied. Jordan owns Charlotte’s perpetually woeful NBA franchise. Mr. President, don’t dig yourself any deeper here.
According to The Hill, In his interview, Jordan said he wouldn’t include the president in a dream golf foursome, but would play him. I love it. Michael Jordan specifically stated that his dream foursome would not include one of the most golf-loving presidents of all time, inferring that President Obama is not good enough to play with him “I’ve never played with Obama, but I would,” Jordan said. “But — nah, that’s OK. I’ll take him out. He’s a hack. Man, I’d be all day playing with him.” Jordan said laughing, “I never said he’s wasn’t a great politician, I just said he’s a shitty golfer.”
The one thing I can assuredly say that I appreciate about Barack Obama is his seemingly lighthearted sense of humor.
All in all, the real question is, can either of them do this?
