Obama Makes Fun of Late-Career Derek Jeter: ‘For a Baseball Player, You Were Old’

As President Barack Obama’s time as president is coming to an end, he sat down with former New York Yankees great Derek Jeter of The Players Tribune for some tips on retirement.

Obama then took a shot a Jeter, making fun of his running in his later years.

Transcript as follows:

OBAMA: Derek, you are now somebody who now has some experience in hanging up the cleats. I’m about to retire. I’m not quite as young as you, but still relatively young.

JETER: Thank you, can you repeat that? Because when you’re in sports, they say you’re old at 30, so thank you. I appreciate that.

OBAMA: I mean, for a baseball player, you were old. Let’s face it, I mean, come on, man. We saw you trying to run around those bases.
