Barack Obama Fires Back at Michael Jordan: Worry About the Hornets

by November 05, 2014

The disastrous mid-term elections aren’t the only headache U.S. President Barack Obama is dealing with these days; he must also contend with Michael Jordan’s brazen trash talk.

MJ dissed Obama’s golf skills in a recent TV interview, and the prez admits that his game on the links could use some work.

Obama thinks Jordan would be better off focusing on his basketball team.

Per TheHill (via Wisconsin radio station WJMR):

“Michael wasn’t very well informed about this, I think he might’ve just been trying to give Ahmad [Rashad] 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. […] He might want to spend more time thinking about the Bobcats — or the Hornets,” Obama added.


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