While Democratic lawmakers were taking a shellacking at the polls Tuesday and losing control of the U.S. Senate, President Barack Obama had more important things on his mind.
Like getting even with Michael Jordan.
During an interview last week, the NBA legend was talking about fielding a “dream team” of golfers when the president’s name came up.
“He’s a hack,” Jordan said. “Man, I’d be out there all day playing with him.”
Jordan went on to call Obama “a sh—y golfer.”
Obama was on the radio Tuesday in Wisconsin when he was asked about Jordan’s remarks, and took the opportunity to get his own dig in.
“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,” the president added. Jordan is the majority owner of an NBA team, which had a quick appearance in the 2014 playoffs before being swept.
