President Obama’s ‘Basketball Ring’ Burn Of Ted Cruz Is A Definite Must-See

by

President Barack Obama attended his final White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday night, and in his speech, he poked fun at several different people.

One of them was Ted Cruz, a Texas senator running for president in the Republican party. Cruz recently took some criticism for calling a basketball hoop a “basketball ring,” which is a huge gaffe in a basketball-crazy state such as Indiana.

It was the subject of one of Obama’s jokes.

Obama is a huge basketball fan, and he recently did a series of mentoring videos with reigning NBA MVP Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors.
