Barack Obama Introduced As ‘Former Chicago Resident’ In Michael Jordan Documentary

The Michael Jordan-Chicago Bulls documentary “The Last Dance” premiered on ESPN Sunday, giving a sports-starved nation a bit of cheek.

The series interviewed former President Barack Obama, and an on-screen graphic referred to him simply as “former Chicago resident.”

Director Jason Hehir explained previously to The Athletic that the 10-part documentary’s subject titles were meant to emphasize specific connections to the players.

Thus, Obama, who rose through the political ranks in Chicago while Jordan was a Bulls star, was given his less-decorated designation (as was former President Bill Clinton, who was called “former Arkansas governor” because he discussed ex-Bull Scottie Pippen’s days at the University of Central Arkansas.) 

People on Twitter got a kick out of it.
