After basketball legend Michael Jordan called President Barack Obama a “shitty golfer” last week, the president responded bitterly while doing a radio interview with Wisconsin radio station WJMR, calling Jordan “misinformed” and saying he should instead focus on the Hornets, Jordan’s franchise with a 1-3 record.

The radio show host asked Obama what he had to say after Jordan called him a hack, and Obama said he had never even played with Jordan. (RELATED: Michael Jordan Calls Obama A Shitty Golfer)

“Michael wasn’t very well informed about this, I think he might’ve just been trying to give Ahmad an extra ratings boost on his show…He might want to spend more time thinking about the Bobcats – or the Hornets.”

Obama, who has played over 200 rounds of golf since taking office, said if he had more time to play, he could be better than the NBA star, who boasts a 3 handicap.

“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.”
