Watch President Obama Roast Michael Jordan As He Gives Him The Presidential Medal Of Freedom

| November 23, 2016 | 0 Comments


Without a doubt everybody knows that Michael Jordan’s name will soon be in the American dictionary synonymous with excellence.

However that didn’t stop our illustrious and distinguished leader/amateur comedian president Obama from having a little fun as he gave the greatest basketball player ever to play the game Michael Jordan the presidential medal of freedom.

The president jokingly roasted the sports icon saying “He’s more than just a logo, more than just an internet meme, more than just a charitable donor or business owner committed to diversity. There is a reason you call somebody the Michael Jordan of…the Michael Jordan of neurosurgery or the Michael Jordan of Rabbis or the Michael Jordan of outrigger canoeing and they know what you’re talking about because Michael Jordan is the Michael Jordan of greatness.”

Along with Michael Jordan 20 others received the Presidential Medal of Freedom including all of those participating in Tracee Ellis Ross led mannequin challenge.

The Blackness actress was there to give her mom, singing icon Diana Ross support. The actress wrote on Instagram: “Look what we got everyone to do! I’m in the pink dress laughing with Rita! It’s the #MannequinChallenge, Presidential Medal of Freedom Edition at the @WhiteHouse!! Starring #RobertDeNiro, @RitaWilson, @TheEllenShow, @KareemAbdulJabbar_33, @TomHanks, #BillGates, #MichaelJordan, @FrankGehry, my mama #DianaRoss, and more!”
