Did President Obama throw a little shade at Michael Jordan after Jordan dissed his golf game? A few days ago, Jordan was interviewed by Ahmad Rashad and asked who he’d play with in a golf foursome. First he said Obama, then took it back, calling the President a “hacker.”

When asked about the soundbite, Obama suggested that maybe Jordan’s focus is in the wrong place.

“Michael wasn’t very well informed about this,” Obama told radio host Earl Stokes of Wisconsin’s WJMR.

“I think he might’ve just been trying to give Ahmad an extra ratings boost on his show. 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.”

Obama then finished off with this zinger:  “He might want to spend more time thinking about the Bobcats or maybe the Hornets.”

The Hornets are currently 2-3, although of course, its early in the season.

    I guess since President Obama was doing a radio interview and was asked his thoughts about what MJ said he felt the need to respond. However, I really wished he wouldn’t have responded at all. He doesn’t need to provde himself to anyone, he’s already done that. He’s our country’s first black president, no one else can say that. There are a lot of good golfers however, MJ is just one of the many.

    For all of the fame, fortune and success that Michael Jordan has achieved, he can still be a real AH, sometimes. Speaking of basketball, in terms of what Obama said back to him.
    Now, that was a Real Post Up!

    Jordan should have kept his comments to himself…what a tool…The president has truly achieve something in his life that, yet another black man decides to take a dig on a man who is insulted daily for the guts to run and win President of the United States twice…Jordan is what I always thought of him an asshole a rich one but still an asshole. Since, Jordan is so critical of what is winning and was is not…Well what’s up with that losing non productive team of yours indeed? And since Jordan was so close to his child/incest molesting dad and he has the resources, why has he never tried to find out who killed him? Just wondering

    • Geeze! All that just because MJ criticized Obama’s golf game. He didn’t say the President was shitty. He said his golf game was shitty. What’s so awful about that? It’s not like he criticized or maligned his character or work ethic, like Obama did when he stood on national tv and called Dumbye an idiot (which I totally agree with). If you ask Obama what kind of president MJ would make, he’d probably say “he’s a great basketball player, but he’d make a shitty president”. Which is exactly what MJ said about the President when asked about his golf game. What did he say that was so wrong?

  4. Michael Jordan is a man of leisure and can play golf everyday of the week!

    Whereas, the Prez has a demanding full-time job handling this country!!!!!!!!!
