Obama Knows He’s No Michael Jordan (at Golf)

Last week, legendary jerk Michael Jordan said the president of the United States is a "hack" and a "shitty golfer" he wouldn’t deign to play with. As expected, Barack Obama eventually got around to formulating a rated-PG comeback, because he’s not allowed to curse in public. "Michael wasn’t very well informed about this," he said on the radio this morning. "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." (Soon enough, Barack, soon enough.)

Obama added, "He might want to spend more time thinking about the Bobcats — or the Hornets," who are currently 1-3, but forgetting the current name of the basketball team Jordan owns was actually the best burn of all.
