No one’s safe from Michael Jordan’s trash talk — not even the president.
Jordan offered a less than stellar assessment of President Obama’s golf game in an interview with Ahmad Rashad for the Back9Network.
Rashad asked Jordan about his dream “foursome” to play golf with, and MJ’s first choice was Arnold Palmer. Then things got interesting.
“I never played with Obama, but I would,” Jordan said, before quickly changing course. “But nah, that’s ok. I take him out because he’s a hack. It’d be all day playing with him.”
That’s when Rashad rushed to the president’s defense.
“You really want to say that about the President of the United States?” Rashad asked.
His Airness didn’t back down.
“I never said he wasn’t a great politician; I’m just saying he’s a sh***y golfer.”
Now all President Obama needs to do is provide a zinger of his own. Let’s get these two on the golf course immediately.
Who knows what will happen? We think Obama has a better shot on the green than on the hardwood.
