Michael Jordan Calls President Obama a Terrible Golfer

Hoops Hall of Famer says he would beat commander-in-chief on links anytime.

Published October 31, 2014

Years after retirement and now the owner of the Charlotte HornetsMichael Jordan remains ultra competitive.

Sitting down for an interview with good friend Ahmad Rashad recently, MJ didn't hold back when asked if he ever played golf against President Obama.

"I've never played with Obama but I would," said Jordan, as reported by CBS Sports. "But no, that's OK, I'd take him out. He's a hack, it would be all day playing with him."

Rashad jovially responded: "Do you really want to say that to the president of the United States?"  

His Airness still didn't let up."Don't worry about it," Jordan said. "I never said he wasn't a great politician, I'm just saying he's a sh**ty golfer."

Wow. Jordan clearly has no filter when it comes to competition of any kind. Jordan had similar fun taking over the Hornets' social media outlets earlier this week, marking the Hall of Famer's first time using social media, period.

His Hornets began their 2014-15 NBA season with an overtime win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night. They'll host the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night.
