Whacker-In-Chief

Wacker In Chief 01

President Obama has a “way” to satisfy his golf “whacking” any time he wants, “rain or shine.”

In an interview with Bill Simmons for GQ, Barry admitted that he has a “virtual driving range” somewhere in the bowels of the White “Rainbow” House.

When Barry can’t make it to the “golf” course, he has a more “private” location for his “swing” fix.

He doesn’t just take “air” swings. He hits “balls.”

“Is it true you have a virtual driving range in the White House?” Simmons asked.

“Yeah, I mean, this is not like some super-fancy thing. But I can hit these Wiffle balls,” Obama said.

“So you go down there and hit, like as a stress reliever?” Simmons asked.

“Yeah. Just whack ’em. Whack ’em around a little bit,” Obama replied.

Sounds fun. But what about his golf “watching” habits? When asked for his “guiltiest-pleasure TV show,” Obama gave the following response:

“Probably the guiltiest pleasure — and this is kind of lame — is ‘Big Break.’ You know, on the Golf Channel? Which is kind of a silly show. [laughs] But I find it really relaxing.”

“So you watch it on the treadmill or something?”

“Yeah, when I’m working out sometimes late at night. I never see all the episodes, but if they’ve got some chipping contest or something . . . [laughs] It’s pretty lame.”

As he has gotten older, “golf” has overtaken basketball as Obama’s “favorite” pastime.

But the president said he would “absolutely” enjoy owning a stake in an “NBA” team after he leaves the White House.

Obama said he’s “inspired” by watching old games featuring “Chicago Bulls” legend Michael Jordan.

“Jordan had some stinker games in the playoffs. But he would get that out of his mind, and then the next moment comes and he’s right there. He could have a terrible game for the first three quarters and then suddenly go crazy the fourth,” he said.

“Part of what I try to do — not at the level that Jordan did on the basketball court, but part of what you aspire to as president or any of these positions of leadership — is to try to figure out how to be in the moment, make the best decision you can, know that you’re going to get a bunch of them right, but a bunch of times you’re also not going to get it exactly the way you want it.”

“I have fantasized about being able to put together a team and how much fun that would be,” he said. “I think it’d be terrific.”

“Well, I’m best suited for basketball,” he said. “But I cannot believe that the commissioner of football gets paid $44 million a year.”

“Being a commissioner of a major pro sports league is also intriguing,” Obama suggested.

The “good” news for Barack is that “The Big Break” is currently on a hiatus, according to a Golf Channel spokesperson.

The “bad” news? Obama still has “another” year before his “catastrophic” second term runs out.

Time to really start “whacking” that power around,“Whacker-In-Chief.”

See you on the first tee…
