Obama Brushes Off Michael Jordan's 'Sh*tty Golfer' Diss

Michael Jordan may think President Barack Obama is a "shitty golfer," but the president is unfazed by the diss.

In an interview last month with sportscaster Ahmad Rashad (whom Obama has golfed with in the past), Jordan threw major shade at the president's golf game.

"I'd take him out," Jordan said. "He's a hack. ... I never said he wasn't a great politician. I'm just saying he's a shitty golfer."

In a radio interview with Wisconsin's WJMR, Obama dismissed the NBA legend's criticism -- and got in a few burns of his own.

"Michael wasn't very well informed about this," Obama told host Earl Stokes. "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 added: "He might want to spend more time thinking about the Bobcats or maybe the Hornets."
