Barack Obama can’t stop dunking all over Trump in this ‘NBA 2K17’ simulation

Barack Obama played basketball throughout his presidency, and he was noted as a solid, if not a spectacular, participant. Donald Trump plays plenty of golf, but also tends to eat fast food and has reportedly been gaining weight while in the presidency.

So, if they happened to play a game of basketball against each other, the betting odds would be comparable to those of the upcoming Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor boxing match—Obama, like Mayweather, would be a massive favorite.

Luckily, we don’t have to imagine the scenario, because somebody simulated an Obama-Trump basketball matchup using NBA 2K17. You won’t be surprised that Obama dominates. You won’t be surprised that Trump can’t stop falling to the ground. And you won’t be surprised that Obama dunks on Trump as much as possible.

For those who are put off by Trump’s misogynistic tweeting and his penchant for treating the media as a punching bag, there might be some catharsis in watching that video. But there’s also this fact: This is the only time you’ll ever get the chance to see Obama breaking Trump’s ankles.
