Everyone knows about the fierce competitive nature of Michael Jordan and it seems there is no one the legendary Bulls star is afraid to call out, even the President of the United States.

Jordan still shows no fear, he's carried his frightening competitiveness into his Charlotte Hornets ownership days and has now set his sights on President Barack Obama over his golfing prowess.

Considered the greatest NBA player of all time, his thoughts on everything basketball are still valued to the highest entity and recently Ahmad Rashad caught up with the 51-year-old to speak about everything from Hornets basketball to golf.

During the chat with Rashad, a passage was spotted where Jordan was posed the question of “Who would be in your ideal foursome?”

In his customary fragrant tone, Jordan aimed his sights squarely on Obama and called the President out for being a slow and frankly terrible golfer.

Jordan just doesn't care

His Airness was quite quick to boldly dismiss Rashad from the equation, he would go on to pick Arnold Palmer before entertaining the thought of including Obama:

“I’ve never played with Obama, but I would, But naw, that’s OK. I take him out. He’s a hack. Man, it would be all day playing with him.”

Rashad quickly asked whether he felt comfortable saying that about the most powerful man in the United States, but Jordan wasn't backing down:

“Yeah, don’t worry about it. I never said he wasn’t a great politician, I’m just saying he’s a s----y golfer,” 

He then went on swiftly without a care to round out the perfect foursome for the six-time NBA champion, he included arguably golf's greatest player today in Rory McIlroy and finished with a historical companion in the form of Teddy Roosevelt.

Just a reminder to all fans, this is Jordan's world and we are all just along for the exciting and humorous ride.
