Michael Jordan slams President Obama: 'He's a sh--ty golfer'

Public opinion is not currently in President Barack Obama's favor, but there has to still be support from other high-profile individuals, right?

Not when it comes to Obama's golf game.

Michael Jordan sat down with Ahmad Rashad on the Back 9 Network to talk about his ideal foursome, and while the basketball legend and avid golfer first included Obama on his list, he quickly backtracked.

"No, I take that back," Jordan says in the video, below. "I'd be out all day playing with him."

Rashad expresses surprise at Jordan's flippant remarks toward the sitting president, to which Jordan responds, "I never said he wasn't a great politician. I'm just saying he's a sh--ty golfer."

While Jordan has never played with the president, and thus can't know just how sh--ty or not sh--ty his game is, The New York Times did report this summer that Obama is known for his "slow, deliberative play," which kind of sounds like a euphemism for Jordan's assessment. --Sarah Eberspacher
