Barack Obama fires back at Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan made news last week when he called Barack Obama a “hack” and a “sh—- golfer” in an interview with Ahmad Rashad.

The president fired back in an interview Monday with Wisconsin radio station WJMR.

“There is no doubt that Michael is a better golfer than I am,” Obama said. “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,” Obama added.

Jordan owns the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets, which this year reverted back to their old nickname after a 10-year spell as the Charlotte Bobcats.

“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 also said.

According to The Hill, Obama went on to say that he loved for Jordan for the championships he won with the Chicago Bulls.
