President Obama to Derek Jeter: “for a baseball player, you were old, man”

Derek Jeter recently interviewed President Obama because, I dunno, he can. He’s Derek Jeter. He’s retired and everyone needs a hobby.

The full interview is going to be at The Player’s Tribune on Wednesday, but today they released a teaser of it. It’s worth seeing because it features Obama providing more critical commentary of the latter part of Jeter’s career than almost anyone in the media ever provided:

“I mean, for a baseball player, you were old, man. Let’s face it. I mean come on man, we saw you trying to run those bases.”

So disrespectful of The Captain. Didn’t even do the obligatory shoutout to his class and leadership. Sad.
