President Obama is an avowed fan of the Chicago Bulls, but their most famous player ever probably won’t be invited out to the links with the commander in chief any time soon.
Michael Jordan is calling the commander in chief a “shitty golfer.”
In an interview for the Back 9 Network, Ahmad Rashad — who’s teed off with Obama on more than one occasion — asks Jordan who he would play in his ideal golf foursome.
“I’ve never played with Obama, but I would,” the basketball Hall of Famer says before quickly appearing to change his mind. “But nah, that’s okay. I’ll take him out. He’s a hack. Man, I’d be all day playing with him.”
“Do you really want to say that?,” Rashad replies, looking into the camera recording the sit-down. “The president of the United States is a hack?”
“Don’t worry about it,” Jordan says, in the playful conversation. “I never said he’s wasn’t a great politician, I just said he’s a shitty golfer.”
Rashad quickly comes to the defense of Obama’s putting prowess: “No, he’s not a bad golfer.”
Obama, an avid golfer, has often been a favorite target of critics for his affinity for picking up his clubs. Earlier this month, CBS News noted that he had reached a golfing milestone, having played 200 rounds since becoming president in 2009.
